  fasten your seats for the coming
  game reviews...

              narc - ocean

  the game consists of 6 levels, each
  containing a lot of enemies to kill
  by shooting everything.
  the sales curve's latest production
  contains partly average graphics,
  except the levels and sprites itself,
  an average sound, but nice special
  effects, a two-player-modus and more.
  gathering weapons is possible...

                       valuation : 73%

        fire & forget ii - titus

  the 1st part has never been produced,
  but considering that the successor is
  usually said to be better than its
  predecessor, we do better without it.

  the game is a car-racing game with
  the only difference that you have to
  shoot your opponents and the
  hindrances. after you made enough
  speed you can take off and also shoot
  the flying circus around yourself.
  graphics, music, fun etc are low !!
