Gain Ground

Kind of like Gauntlet without the scrolling, Gain Ground stunned us all with its yawn-inducing gameplay and pathetic graphics and sound.

What We Said Then

Jaz: If you're after a fun shoot-'em-up involving people against baddies try out Gauntlet, it's miles better than this.

Matt: A good idea has been lost in dreary, aimless play that constantly fails to grab the imagination; I thought that the game would improve as it got more difficult - but no luck there!

What We Say Now

Jaz: Battle Squadron cuts the mustard, but this cuts the cheese. What a sinker. I thought this was crap then like it less nowadays. Take 25% off each rating, then flush the cart down the lavvie.

Rich: Arghhh! Take it away! I love great games. I even like bad games because they're strangely compelling in a cack sort of way. Gain Ground is sort of in a limbo, it's so dull and broing. Take away 20% from each rating.
