ATTEN... wait for it, wait for it... SHUN! Right, do you know why you have been called to this briefing? Well, you are the brave idio ... er, volunteer who has been assigned to this mission. The Eagle's Nest is a huge fortress manned by lots of German soldiers (well this is World War II, you know). A three man team was sent in to blow the place to smithereens, but they never returned. However, they did manage to plant explosives throughout the fortress, and your mission is to find the four hidden detonators and destroy the Eagle's Nest.

Drat, I haven't been able to put the joystick down since I started playing this game. The overhead-view graphics have some really nice touches: the mess tables, toilets, and bunk rooms are all depicted in great detail. One slight moan I do have is about the amount of explosives lying around - when concentrating on shooting the enemy, it's too easy to accidentally hit a crate of dynamite, ending the game. Even so, Into The Eagle's Nest is great fun to play and fantastic value at just two quid.
