Business in the front, party in the back. Mullets! As much
as I love 'em, Total Recall actually slaps them onto
little people and has them attack Arnold in their PJs!
You're Arnold, a 2d character in a 3d world, making
things not only ugly to the eye, but also very hard to
tell what's ground and what's the impending pit of doom. I
had to play Marathon Man Dentist with this game before
landing on what appeared to be ground, repeating the
question "Is it safe?" To which the ground would
reply "Yes, it's very safe, safe as it can be."
Naturally, it's not safe, and I take one of Dustin
Hoffman's teeth out for telling me such horrible things
(go see Marathon Man you blank staring peeps).
The streets are flooded with little unshaven mullet
bearing, jumpsuit wearing men who attack from alleys,
garbage cans, and using their driver's license to throw
snowballs at you (they're not rocks, rocks don't disappear
on impact). And it gets better, you go into the subway
where you get attacked by dogs 3x the size of their
owners, and gun bearing guards (of whom you can steal
their firearms). Great! I'm on the second stage of an
action game and I'm finally handed a firearm! This
game got sooo much better, 'cause you can't get much worse
than your fist which you've been using and can't reach the
width of your body. Then this game thinks it's cool by
going into split screen environment where the AI (in
trench coats mind you, I think they make the midgets
appear bigger) tries attacking you through a wall. And
following that charade is an Abadox shooter scenario.
I know what you're thinking, "Bomb-Omb, if you hate
this game so much why did you play so far into it?" I
mean, after all, playing 3/4ths into the game and whining
about how bad it is is like complaining about how bad a
whopper tastes after eating 3/4ths the way into it. Well,
I felt compelled to kill the midgets, I'd never thought
I'd say this, but, this game drove me to hate mullets with
a passion. That, and, you can't honestly review how bad a
game is without playing more than one stage into it...
unless you're Seanbaby who was actually smart enough to
stop at the first stage. Me? I'm just a bomb. For shame,
Acclaim, you have yet to meet my action satisfaction.
