Resident Evil: Survivor 2, Code: Veronica. Capcom/Namco (2002) PlayStation 2

I need to stop playing awful Light Gun Games. I am fairly sure I am the only person that likes On-Rails shooters, and I am now fairly sure I have played all the good ones.

In my Resident Evil: Survivor review, I said it was a 40% game as a Light Gun Shooter or 45% as a Resident Evil experience, but somehow added up to a decent enough gaming experience, and in the Dino Stalker Review I didn’t especially like it, but it was just about functional.

With that, we scrape the Resident Evil barrel and what is left of Light Gun Games barrel to see if we have an at least functional game.

Die Hard Trilogy. Fox Interactive. (1996) PlayStation

This might actually be the first game request I ever got, and that was literally 3 years ago, so that is how incompetent I can be with requests!

Anyway, Die Hard Trilogy was a pretty epic game back in the day, you got 3 totally different styles of game on one disc and since all the games are totally different I will score each game individually, and then score the “collection” as a whole. Continue reading

Operation Wolf. Taito (1989) Nintendo/Sega Master System

operationwolfnes

Released in 1987 in the arcades, and the Sega Master System in 1991 Operation Wolf is renowned for being one of the best Light Gun Games of the era. Though it is one of the most (home) converted games of all time, only the NES, Spectrum and S.M.S offered actual Light Gun support.

And with that, in my attempts to play all Light Gun games possible, is Operation Wolf any good nowadays?

Time Crisis 3. Namco (2003) PlayStation 2

time-crisis-3-playstation-2

The Time Crisis series has been a little hit and miss for me [intentional semi-pun]. Time Crisis was good in the day, but nowadays it struggles when compared to it’s peers. Time Crisis II is a great game, Project Titan was actually OK, and Crisis Zone was, to be kind, mediocre. So going into Time Crisis 3 I was hoping it would build on TC2, which again, was great.

Wild Gunman, Nintendo R&D1 (1988) Nintendo

wild_gunman_coverart

I am scraping the barrel now on the Light Gun front, but like any good artist I need to suffer for my art rants. Released ’84 in Japan, ’85 in the US, before finally making its way to PAL in ’88 when I was but a bairn, but even a a wee kiddy-winkle I thought it was odd that it wasn’t Wild Gunmen. Continue reading

Hogan’s Alley. Intelligent Systems (1987) Nintendo

I am going to do a top Light gun Games list soon, and to do that I want to get a few games out of the way. So apologies to the many people who don’t like On-Rails shooters as much as me.

Originally released in Japan in 1984, North America in ’85, before finally getting s PAL release in ’87 Hogan’s Alley was an early Home Console Light Gun Game using the Nintendo Zapper. It isn’t on-rails in the normal sense, but you are directed where to pew.
