Robocop dominated the charts for so long the whole software industry wondered if he'd ever be toppled from the charts and, although the successor Robo 2 was a good game, it didn't quite have the same appeal as the original.

It's a long difficult game that takes place in the horizontally scrolling world of future Detroit where violence and crime rule the streets. Shoot up the punks on the streets, maul the end of level rapist in a difficult target practice exercise, match a photo-fit, destroy a drug manufacturing plant... there's certainly lots of variety to this game. And all of a violent, shoot 'em up nature.

The graphics are superbly detailed and motion is smooth. Sound is also very impressive. It's simple, if you haven't already got this classic game, go right out and get it now!

Overall Summary

Still a superb bash after nearly two years on the circuit though almost everyone must have a copy at this stage. Raw, biting shoot em up action which you won't regret buying
