Você é um detetive e Golgo 13 é seu nome de ação. À medida que derrota adversários, você encontra pistas para chegar ao chefe da organização inimiga. Golgo 13 "sai" da tela, passando a ser o seu ponto de vista.
While most of the gameplay is decidedly average
and the graphics do not totally impress, it’s the adult story that is
the true star here, featuring twists, betrayal, murder, and even a
couple of sex scenes thrown in. It’s an intriguing and challenging
game that is definitely more than the sum of its parts, and one of
the rare NES games that’s definitely not for children.
Although none of these mini games is exceptionally well done, overall the game is lengthy, challenging and graphically impressive. And probably the only NES game where the hero gets laid - twice (which is twice more than Dyer has ever gotten.) The fact that Golgo 13 got past Nintendo's "quality" control is even cooler.
Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode is a frustrating experience, mainly because if it had tighter controls it could have been one of the top-tier games on the NES. The variety is a great idea but unfortunately the gameplay is so awkward that seeing it through to the end is a real test of patience.
If Golgo-13 wasn’t so concerned about contradicting itself at every turn (it’s as if Vic Tokai really didn’t know whether they wanted to make a good or bad game), this could have been an exciting hybrid of Rolling Thunder and Mission Impossible. The finished product, sadly, remains cow dung filled with pockets of frosting. Make of that what you will.
