Wait…THIS was a RAIL SHOOTER?! *Googles* Oh wow. It is. Like half rail shooter, half free flight. I remember hearing it was good but I thought it was a fighter! Time to hunt this one down!
EDIT: Just picked it up. Don’t bother. Rail shooting is too short and easy and the off-rails parts kinda suck. Not BAD but REEEALLY sub-par. Press L1, Hold Square, Win Game.
I did not spend enough time with this to judge it but it seemed fugly but okay.
Space Harrier easy mode! …is still Space Harrier. Also the music/announcer is INCREDIBLE! Go to Options and turn off Fractals for a better experience.
The game I started GameBabble with. Considering how much Carlo sucks at beat ’em ups (his heart is in the right place though), I’m surprised how awesome this thing is! PS2 release is Europe Only. Wii release is called Counter Force.
SEGA wanted to make a “Dramatic Shooter”. They would eventually succeed with this game’s sequels. The first one, if I recall, was a bit stiff. Not bad though and indeed a classic.
“More of the same” ain’t so bad when it’s freakin’ SPACE HARRIER!
As an “experience” it’s neat! As a rail shooter? I’m…not a fan.
