 The Final Word game review

Zaxxon's Motherbase 2000 -- Sega

You know... I've talked to a lot of people about this game, and most of them hate it. Although I think I know why. I was pretty disgusted with it at first as well until I figured out some of the tricks to it. For instance, the real trick to this game is landing on your enemies (piggy-back style) and absorbing their weapons into your ship. This one trick is crucial to gameplay, yet most of the people I spoke with never new about it. Graphics are pretty clean. Sound is decent. Playcontrol -- once you figure out how to play it -- is fantastic. In fact, I enjoyed this game so much that I'd almost consider recommending getting a 32X just to play only this game on... almost... If you own the platform, and even remotely like challenging shooters, you've got to get this game... also be sure to glide through the instructions, and watch the demo!
