ROBOCOP 3
SNES 1993.


INFO
The neighbourhood has gone mad. Street gangs are trashing the area known as Caddillac Heights and someone needs to do something. Now RoboCop has to walk(because he canīt run) through six missions which ultimately take you to the showdown at OCP headquarters.


REVIEW
The problem with this game is that RoboCop3 is way too difficult. The Robo sprite moves very slowly, and all the hazards come at you thick and fast. Quite often this also means coping with attacks from three different directions, wich is tough in the extreme. Such problems are supposed to be compensated for by the fact that you have four weapons available, but you have to find them first. And the thing is that better weapons will demand more ammo. The three-way pistol uses up your ammo three times faster.

If that wasnīt enough, when youīre right up against a baddie who is ducking, Robo also has a worrying tendency not to be able to kill them. Itīs also best not to stand up when shooting, but this means you spend most of the game ducking.

There are some big faults in this game. The hard difficult level is quite unforgiving and there are no restart points, which doesnīt please anyone. Also there is a very big lack of variety which most players will spot instantly. Iīll admit itīs fun to begin with, but it is to flawed to be playable.
