The Game in Review episode 1

I'm going to try something new. I'm going to start reviewing video games, but not necessarily new ones. You see, I'm the kind of person who loves 'retro' games. Don't get me wrong, I love the newer games, but you can't beat the classics. There's the ones we all know, sure, Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter II, Doom, Tetris, the list goes on and on. The point is, I'm going to look at ones that you may or may not have heard of.

 

That having been said, here is today's Game In Review:

 

RoboCop_vs.gif

 

Virgin Group Ltd. has dabbled in just about everything imaginable. Cell Phones, Comic Books, heck, even hot air balloon flights. Back in the nineties, they released the video game, Robocop Vs. The Terminator. Now, cross-overs are a big business, Alien vs. Predator, Godzilla vs. King Kong, Freddy vs. Jason, etc. So you'd think that this would be just as big.

 

Maybe I just wasn't around at the time when this thing came out, but a few quick web searches have turned up little. While it seems to be somewhat popular among the two titular characters respective fanbases, there's not much to be heard about this game. So when I picked it up at a Salvation Army, I figured four dollars wasn't going to be that bad of an investment even if the game sucked.

 

So did it suck?

 

Happily, I can say "No, the game did not suck." Granted, I have definitely played better, but overall, it's not horrible. Graphically, this game is pretty decent. I love the Genesis, with its sixteen bit graphics, but this game is about average fare. The game is difficult, but not to the point of being rip-your-hair-out-of-your-head difficult. The controls are a little bit slippery, but the game is far from unplayable. The music is nothing special.

 

The story in essence is, from what I gather, something along the lines of, "Terminators go back in time to take of the world so Robocop decides to fight back." There may be a bit more to it than that, but the game implements basically none of it, especially since most of the time you seem to be shooting a bunch of average thugs (although, if you put in a code, they become leather-clad and rather buxom thugs).

 

What I really enjoy about this game is that it's violent. While it's not as violent as Mortal Kombat, which was released a year before Robocop vs. Terminator, it's still got a bloody edginess to it. I couldn't help but giggle like a schoolgirl the first time I saw one of the bad guys explode into a fountain of blood.

 

Fun? Check. Violence? Check. Scantily clad baddies? Check. The game will never be a classic, but if you happen to have a Genesis and find it at a deal like the one I got, then go for it. I give this game 7/10.
