Yippee, it's here! The new Action Pack from WH Smith, and look at the wonderfully exciting games it contains. Who Dares Wins II. Wow, what a terrible... sorry, I'm supposed to say terrific game - it's Commando goes flip screen. Trap, cor! This is nearly as exciting as championship mould breeding. It's ruined, though, by the fact that you cant see the bullets, the aliens, the missiles and generally anything in the game. Indoor Bowling. Weeelaagh! Primitive, man! (Cue Orson Wells) Probably the worst bowling game ever. (You don't even get the the little man bowling the ball!) Finally, it's Octagon. Now, I've gota terrible memory but... what was I saying? Oh, yes, my memory, but I can remember when this game was released and correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't that only a month or two ago. Blimy guy, that didn't take long to hit the compilation train, lub-a-dub, stone the crows.

It's not exactly an action packed Action Pack, but it is very cheap.

Easily one of the most boring compilations I have ever played - but it's very, very cheap.
