WAR MACHINE GARTH

Yet another platform 'leap, sproing, cavort whilst dishing out a bit of mega death' game. The plot is a little tenuous as Andrew points out and I think he's probably showing some of the dissatisfaction felt by punters when a game seems to have a scenario written vaguely around it once it's completed. War Machine isn't as bad as he makes out however as the graphics are crisp and the game does move nicely along. It is somewhat boring though as he says with not quite enough of the added bells, whistles and depth of gameplay that buyers now expect.

Nice graphics but far too shallow in gameplay.

Leap, sproing, zap. Yes it's all go as you try to kill the Queen of the asteroid and her swarming army of 'orrible little breeders.
