Virtua squad, one of the all time classic shoot-em-up based games, originally used in arcade machines with a light gun, the game contains good graphics for its time, and the gameplay is just to match, having played number two too, it is well worth a look at, and your money if you ever get a chance to buy it in the future, the training mode allows you to practice skills against targets to allow you to hone your skills and most importantly get that all important shot in the hand which gets you the most points in this police based game.
The game also contains some nifty sound effects too, which help you feel as if you were there.... at the time of making anyway. You always start with a pistol which contains 6 rounds for each reload, and a prompt appears to warn you when you are out of ammo, if you did not realise with the *tick* sound that it makes each time you click the mouse when your clip is empty.
This game is made by Sega by the AM2 section. Well known in arcades as producers of games like Desert Tank, Virtua Cop, Virtua Cop 2, Virtua Cop 3, Virtua Racing, Virtua On, Virtua Tennis, Virtua Fighter, Virtua Fighter 2, Virtua Fighter 3, and Daytona USA.
The controls are fairly
simple, simple enough for me even to understand when I was of a young age, the left mouse button to shoot, and the right mouse button to reload. The game features a two player co-operative mode and also a series of difficulty settings that allow for replayability.
The challenge comes when hostages pop out behind the most obvious locations at immense speeds, many a time have I lost a life over the hostages, even with their own sound effects also to help add to the realism. This game is a must have if you are looking to expand your arcade game selection and it's always good if you have number two, to find out where those roots came from, and if you are lucky enough to have number three close by, download this for some vintage style!
To sum up: Graphics: Good for the time of release, average compared to other games by the same company.
Sound: Immersive and sometimes annoying, but does not deter gameplay.
Gameplay: Definite replayability factor with definite "pick-up-and-play" features.
