The Final Word game review
Interplay's Loaded for the PlayStation puts you in the shoes of one of six homicidal mutants who are attempting to escape from the prison planet of RAULF. Blast anything that moves, blast anything that doesn't move, and for sport, blast everything else while grabbing as much booty as you can find along the way... Throw out the morals and buckle down for complete carnage.
Moms and Dads go cover your children's eyes. This title is the single most bloody, brutal splatterfest that there has ever been. Doom looks like a childs game compared to this title. But underneath all the blood and gore lies an extremely fast, shoot-em up action game similar to Smash TV, only without the set paths. The maze like atmosphere of each level gives it a real strategy feel, while the constant action keeps you hopping. If you don't have small kids around, or a weak stomach, this is a title well worth looking into.
While highly reminiscent of the classic arcade game Gauntlet, Loaded not only achieves the same quality of game, it passes it, setting a whole new standard for this type of title. The graphics in this title are nothing short of amazing and no matter how long I played for, the farther into the game I got, the more I found myself being impressed. Although I found that after completing a level a couple of times through I wasn't to hot on repeating it yet again due to the incredible length of many of the levels, which in turn lowered the overall replay value on the game for me. Gameplay is right on the money, and graphics and sound are perfect for the game. The game also offers good entertainment in its soundtrack (composed and performed by "Pop Will Eat Itself"), which can be listened to during play or separately on your CD player (just be careful not to play the game data tracks and damage your stereo!). If you own a PlayStation and enjoy overhead, "blow the hell out of everything" games, then this is your puppy!
