ReceptionEdit

The four reviewers of Electronic Gaming Monthly were divided over the Sega CD version. Two of them, while criticizing that the limited ammunition negatively affects the gameplay, praised the exciting action and the "seamless" transitions between full motion video sequences. The other two denounced the game as suffering from grainy, repetitive FMV which hampers the gameplay. They gave it an average score of 6 out of 10.[1] GamePro gave it a mixed review, applauding the quality and intensity of the full motion video but criticizing the driving controls.[2]

Next Generation reviewed the Sega CD version of the game, rating it two stars out of five, and stated that "while the pace is fast, the learning curve is steep, and you'll begin to tire of watching the same stuff blow up again and again and start wishing you'd actually get somewhere."[3]
