The Hit Squad

Young David Darling describes this as, "Technically brilliant, ultra fast, infuriatingly addictive, *mega* blast-'em-up! *Wicked*!" Then again, David Darling runs Codemasters. We personally think it's a fairly ordinary flick-screen jump and shoot game in similar style to Firebird's ageing Heartland.

It's not particularly addictive, but nevertheless provides adequate blasting fodder for the money.


Don't believe the hype - this is an average shoot and explore game.
