Dominus

Visual Concepts / U.S. Gold 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

If the history mankind has shown us one thing, it is that seemingly all-powerful empires will fall eventually. Their power depends on many psychological factors. Among them, the disunity of the people they rule over. Once those manage to ally, the sated, tardy and overly bureaucratic empire suddenly isn't so invincible anymore.


Final Fight

Creative Materials / U.S. Gold 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Metro City's new mayor, the former Street Fighter champion Haggar, has vouched to rid the city off crime. The Mad Gears (a local gang) aren't too thrilled by that prospect, so they've kidnapped Haggar's daugther Jessica to blackmail him. As either Haggar himself, Jessica's boyfriend or another random guy who happened to be hanging around at the gym, the player has to fights his way through the hordes of the Mad Gears to free her again. No real risk there, because for some reason, the evil guys won't kill her even when they're attacked...


Human Killing Machine

Tiertex / U.S. Gold 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Street Fighter came out, and although it was not nearly as influential as its sequel and honestly speaking wasn't even all that great to begin with, it did have its imitations. Such as Human Killing Machine. The game with one of the most ridiculous titles ever.


Italy 1990

U.S. Gold 1990
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Just like movie tie-ins, 'official' games of major sport events are crap in most cases. After paying for the expensive licence, little money seems to be left to make a decent game. Or, maybe the companies think it won't be important anyway, because fans will buy the game just because of the name.


Murder

U.S. Gold 1990
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Detective Adventures may not be the most common genre, but they do exist (especially here on this site). All of them are somehow linear in their story and limited in their puzzles. All but one: Murder.


Street Fighter II: The World Warrior

U.S. Gold 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Street Fighter II - the game which ruled the arcades. One of the first examples of tweaking the modern kind of fighting to its perfection. One of the first to incorporate flashy special moves for its characters, thus making them really unique. The two-player sensation. Also a huge hit on the SNES.


Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers

U.S. Gold 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, SNES

Getting arcade ports to home computers right has always been hard. The hardware is usually fundamentally different and conventions are as well. The more customized the arcade machine is, the harder the port. The original Street Fighter II Amiga port had been widely critisized for lack of speed (and controls with a standard joystick, of course). At least, it had retained the large sprites, however.


The Incredible Hulk

U.S. Gold 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

I have to admit that I know nothing about this comic-myth 'Hulk'. But I'll try my best to do justice to him (?) in this review.
Hulk the Incredible - a character full of metaphors. Hulk the Human - he's like you and me. When it is the time again when his skin turns green and his muscles swell, he's standing on a street filled with shooting robots. Apocalypse now in a modern form. The Final Court. Even if it's unbelievable: At this point YOU get into the action. YOU are Hulk. Didn?t we all want to be him sometimes? The time has come now.


Vaxine

U.S. Gold 1990
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Sometimes them game-programmers really demand a lot of imagination - who would think of a human body and virii looking at this game? In Vaxine you are the last line of defense protecting important cells against agressive virii. Such a virus appears in 3 possible colors and can be eliminated by shooting at it with a little ball of the same color. To make this clear right now - at first you will think you got a cool fast action-game here. You will be frustrated soon because you won't survive very long. The game will just get faster and faster if you want it to and you won't be able to defend your cells since you will always miss the virii you try to shoot. You need to think of some basic strategies. Most important things are the black gates. Just drive through one and everything will freeze for one minute (remember to drive through one again before the minute runs out). Now you can search for the next virus and get into a good shooting position before you shoot at it (which will unfreeze everything). While this is enough for the first level you will need to eliminate the virus-producers (flat cells moving around on the floor) first in the higher levels. You will hear a special sound-effect each time one of them appears and that means you have to find the next black gate fast to have time to search for that little bastard.
