the gameplay may be the equivalent of playing wolfenstein on an atari 7800 while entirely submerged in dogpiss, but hey! its got a stylin' funky metal soundtrack with animal noises. so who cares. shoutout todd duane

You can't even get the game to work, not even on a VM, that's cause the game relies on an absolute OS clusterfuck: the menus run on Windows but the game is MS-DOS.

When you do actually manage to run it, you are treated to a woefully outdated game (using the Build engine in 1998, the year of Half-Life, is like trying to release Pong to compete with modern open-world games) with braindead AI. The soundtrack is the only saving grace, and even then it's because it's laughable as hell.

i bought this. i actually bought this new in 1998. i don't know why i thought it would be good. i played it for maybe 5 minutes tops.

hate is overblown but for something whose jewelcase was on every circuit city shelf, it is so far behind the free TCs of its day
