Total Recall DUD OF THE MONTH COLLECTION!
FINAL ZONE II

(Telenet, 1990)

If you love action run and gun games like Contra then maybe you'll like Final Zone 2 as well but it sure is a hard sell. The game starts off with some of ugliest looking cinemas in gaming history and it comes complete with long load times and horrible voice acting too (it seems to be a NEC trademark, eh?). Fortunately the game play itself is much better thanks to it's fast action and 5 different characters to use but just as the game starts getting good it suddenly ends. With 7 linear stages and unlimited continues you'll be done this one in no time flat. If only the game was more original.
