Off World Interceptor Extreme -- Crystal Dynamics

You play the part of a bounty hunter hired to bring in the trash in this fast paced combat/racing game. Off World Interceptor Extreme features 3-D texture-mapped terrain across its 26 levels, and is for play on the Sega Saturn from Crystal Dynamics.

Uhm... I never liked this game, and I still don't... where's the play control?!? I sure can't find it. Worse yet, this version's got enough slowdown in it that it's about comparable more to the speed of the original non-"Extreme" version... not quite, but the slowdown still sucks. Again, the only... and I repeat only thing about this game that makes it worth even checking out for me is the MST3K cinema intermissions.

The more versions of this I play, the more it kinda grows on me. Blowing things up for money is not entirely a bad thing. The gameplay, sound and graphics on the Saturn are good, but this particular version suffers from some serious slowdown problems when using the heavily armed vehicles.
