Pros
Cons
Can be mindlessly fun in quick bursts.
Nice visuals for its time, runs flawlessly on modern PCs.
The soundtrack is a classic .
Mecha-Hitler!
Hit-scanners are bullet-spongy twats and come in droves in the later chapters.
Sluggish movement .
Primitive level layout can be puzzling to navigate.
Little weapon variety.
So many blue textures.

Verdict:

The grandpappy of FPS games is an antique that’s not aged so well. Prolonged playtimes can be frustrating and headache-inducing, even if the gameplay still has a simplistic charm to it. At least Bobby Prince’s soundtrack is still a cracking listen.
