 The Final Word game review

James Pond II, Codename: Robocod -- U.S. Gold

Robocod, agent for F.I.S.H. (Finned Investigators of Shady Humans) is sent after his nemesis Dr. Maybe who has taken over the North Pole toy shops. Your job in this new title for Sega's Game Gear is to capture the bad Doctor and put him out cold.

I like it! For all of you Amiga fans out there (a foreign word to many I know) this one is for you. An excellent translation of this classic title hit the hand-helds. I would like to see more Amiga translations for the Game Gear--that would really make for some great games. For now, there is nothing better than Pond 2, so go for it!

Why? This game is worthless and isn't even worth looking at.

This is one of those games where you either love it, or you just don't get it at all. I believe I fall under the "love it" group. All in all, a great translation and a great game for the Game Gear. Although if your played out on the other versions, you might get worn out with this title kind of quick.

You're a damn fish who can stretch his body to totally unnatural lengths to pick up stupid little gum-drops and candy hearts to make you stronger so you can prevent some sort of weird underwater espionage that I still don't totally understand. Other than not understanding it, the game was pretty cool. This title is technically excellent and a lot of fun.
