 The Final Word game review

Project: Horned Owl -- Sony Computer Entertainment

Metro City is under attack from legions of robots directed by a twisted dictator. Your squad of mechanized troups is the last defense for a city on the brink of destruction. With support for Konami's Enforcer light gun, Project: Horned Owl for the PlayStation is pistol action for one or two-players from Sony Computer Entertainment.

The most impressive thing about this game is the picture quality of the anime. The story sucks but I am impressed with how smooth it looked. This is a shooting game which I really recommend playing with the gun coming out soon. Playing with the controllers is rather awkward. One of the better things about this game is the fact that it is two-player. The sound quality is pretty good. This game doesn't have many levels at all. If you really want to play it wait for the gun to come out, go to a nearby rental store, rent the game and two guns, get a friend, and have about an hour of fun.

Well, I don't normally like to formally review a gun game without the gun, but this is an exception. Play control was just fine, and with the addition of a reload button, the main problem of playing without a gun was gone. Cursor control was quite accurate as well. The graphics in this game were excellent, and the 3-D environment was as interactive as Virtua Cop in many respects. The cinemas were your standard anime fair, but are of high enough quality to attract fans of the art style. The only way that I can recommend this game though is for two-player action, since the one-player action was pretty dull. I really have mixed feelings about owning this game though so I can't really recommend this one all that highly as a purchase since it was a pretty fast solve. A definite rental, though wait until there is a light gun and look at this one again.
