Red Alarm -- T&E Soft/Nintendo

A very interesting approach to a 3-D shooter. My only real problem with this game is the fact that the surfaces are all transparent... Actually, everything in this game is transparent. Solids would have been nice, but overall this is a minor gripe. Other than that, this game is excellent as far as shooters go. Playcontrol (while tricky to figure out at first) is pretty good, giving you tons of control over your craft and how it interacts in it's environment. The game environment in many ways has the feel of the old Atari game Battlezone, but that may just be because of the vector style art -- I'm not quite sure. Game difficulty is quite challenging and should give even top shooter fans a run for they're money. Sound is ok, but as with all of these Virtual Boy games, it suffers from the Game Boy speakers (plink-plink). To be honest, I have to recommend this game as a must have in anyone's Virtual Boy collection. It's worth the eye strain to sink the time into this title.
