Alien Breed 3D II: The Killing Grounds

01.png
Team 17 / Ocean 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
This one's a tough game to review. If you've already seen screenshots somewhere on the Internet, you'll probably be amazed by the huge quality jump from the first part up to this one. And graphics (and, of course, their effect on gameplay) were my main complaint there, weren't they? So everything should be fine this time around, shouldn't it? If only things were so easy.

Beach Volley

Ocean 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Yay, it's summer! Dig out your bathing shorts / suit, jump in the car and head for the beach. And hope you are one of these good-looking sport-types to avoid being laughed about. Or alternatively, hope there are even fatter people than you to keep the attention away from the result of your beer sessions. Hiring some people with visible mutations could also help...


Chase H.Q.

chasehq01.png
Ocean 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Chase H.Q., which first got into the arcades in 1988, is a racing game with a twist. Instead of just using the basic 'driving faster than the opponents', it adds another goal: catching another vehicle. The simple background story tells us something about a 'futuristic' police department called 'Chase H.Q.'. The player sits around in his sports car all day until he gets a call from Nancy from the headquarters, telling him about an escaped criminal who has to be caught again.


Cool World

Twilight / Ocean 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Cool World, the movie, is now rightly forgotten. Even at the time, it was clear that this game, published by Ocean's licencing machine, wouldn't be particularly noteworthy (putting it mildly). Though sporting a curvy female cartoon likeness of Kim Basinger, it was obviously sufficiently tempting to be prominently featured on a number of magazine covers. A character who – in typical Ocean fashion – doesn't appear in-game after the introductory sequence anymore, either.

Epic: The Adventure Begins

epic01.png
Digital Image Design / Ocean 1992
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Epic – announced and hailed as a Wing Commander killer… and at release, it was actually well-received by most of the mainstream press. Apart from a couple of minor voices spoiling the party. In spite of a well-known development team which had already been responsible for the well received F29 Retaliator and would go on to universally lauded simulations such as TFX. What went wrong with this one?


F29 Retaliator

Hook

Ocean 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Wandrell] Maybe some of you remember a film that around twenty years ago tried to give a twist to Peter Pan's story. Well, it did share name with this game, and it's not by chance, as here we have the adaptation of Spielberg's Hook.


Ivanhoe

ivanhoe00.png
Ocean 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

You walk from left to right and kill a few enemies. Sounds like Super Mario World? Maybe, but it's not! And it's not even something similar! It's Ivanhoe!

The 'story' is quite simple: King Richard has been captured by the French and you have to rescue him. Alone. You start your quest in England. There you have to get to the port. Unfortunately, a forest full of villains lies in the way. So you have no other choice but to fight your way through. You draw your sword and show them what you're made of! These weak peasants are no match for you! Some hits with your blade and they fall to the ground dead. Also those cowards hiding in the trees won't escape you!


Jungle Strike

Ocean 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Again the free world needs you and your american technology. The Arabic madman's son joined forces with a South American druglord and you are sent to the jungle where his plans must be reduced to smoking ruins with your helpful Comanche, and a bunch of new vehicles.


Miami Vice

Ocean 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64
Oh, no! Yet another licensed Ocean title? Granted, you shouldn't get your hopes up too far. Nevertheless, Miami Vice really isn't all that terrible as it is often said to be and certainly, it is memorable and unique!
