Ferrari Man
If only I'd forgotten to review this game... the first major disappointment in TTI's Super-CD lineup. The only redeeming quality, sound, in no way fits in with the game. Graphics were below average and gameplay horrid. Action was sparse, and short. It took me longer to type this than to solve... Buy Prince of Persia instead.

O.K., it's another arcade game brought to a home system. Unfortunately it wasn't improved upon too much. For being on Super-CD, this game didn't offer anything great. The graphics were average. The music was O.K. but the voice was really crappy. Game control was so-so. This game was pretty easy if you just sat on the boss and pumped him full of lead. It just didn't keep me interested very long. Sorry guys, nice attempt.

Hmmm... this game reminds me of so many other Capcom games. Not bad for an average shooter. Mildly interesting graphics and music make this game worth at least watching someone play once. I don't like how it's only possible to defeat the final boss with only one of the two characters. But, I do like how you still hold onto some of your money when you die, even between continues. If you're looking to buy a shooter, I'd say to pass this one up for now.

Been there--seen it. Eh, it's another wierd TG shoot'em up. It's not bad, but, well... Who cares?
