Live Ammo is the first of two compilations released recently by Ocean. As you may have guessed from the title, it's a collection of all action games.
First off is Green Beret, the horizontally scrolling, stab, burn, fire-missiles-at-and grenade-'em-up arcade classic. Next is Top Gun, a two-player, split-screen vectorised shoot out in F-14s. OK, but not great. Close behind that comes Rambo. A one man battle across the Vietnamese jungle with some great tunes. Then the classic, The Great Escape. Lots of action, struggling to escape from a German POW camp. Finally Dinamic's Army Moves, seven different screens in various modes of transport.
This is easily one of the best compilations I've come across.
Price: £9.95 cassette / £14.95 disc

Well-thought out collection of classic games. An essential purchase.
