Swat Kats -- Hudson Soft

You have the choice, you have the power. Which of the Swat Kats will you control in this action packed platform game from Hudson Soft based on the animated series of the same name. Swat Kats is out now for the Super NES.

Perhaps a sleeping winner, but more likely not. Swat Kats had decent graphics and sound, but the Gameplay was very lacking. I found little enjoyment in this title, and would not recommend it. Your jumps seemed akward, and there was simply no depth to the gameplay. The theme of a straight side scrolling beat-em-up game is pretty tired, and this game does nothing more than prove that gamers want more.

This is one of those games that makes you wonder why it was ever made. You know the kind of game that has no redeeming qualities what so ever. The graphics are nothing to get excited about and the music is better if you turn the volume down all the way. Very standard game control and an extremely boring story round off this joke of a game. There are few games that repulse me after an hour of game play, unfortunately this is one of them. Please do everyone a favor and don't buy this game.

One of the better platform titles out of Hudson for the SNES. But, while I would say this game is somewhat better than the show it is based on, I would still not recommend this title. Gameplay and the overall learning curve in Swat Kats seemed to be a bit high for the child gamer, yet the general fun factor involved in keeping an older player going was lacking as well, making this game a miss. If you're really board, it would make a good weekend play through though.

The graphics were okay, but the game play was lacking. I was bored by the second level; it was a little too cliche.
