Soldier Of Light

Another coin-op conversion from RAD that is bursting with ideas and a joy to watch but, unfortunately, this one is a bit of a struggle to play.

Soldier Of Light has you single-handedly defending the galaxy from Federation infiltrators and although the graphics are great, moving and firing is not easy and indeed can be very frustrating. Between planets, the space cruiser battles are fun and exciting. but progress on land is slow and your inability to move too far backwards is also restricting.

You can fight through to conquer the third planet but only with a lot of patience; if you are lacking in this quality, you will definitely need a cold bath nearby to keep your cool.
