Firestriker [Action Game]
Potential Pros & Cons
- It's a game compatible with the multi-tap!
- Up to four players!
- Story Mode is cool with two players
- Interesting and original gameplay concept: Arkanoid + Zelda
- Average or below average presentation (for the year)
- Really small multi-player maps
- The ball almost bounces around randomly, with a mind of its own
- Has a lot of untapped potential
"That saying "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained" might be true to an extent, but sometimes, you don't miss out on much by not giving something a shot. Firestriker is one of those things. The only other things I can say about this game is the obsessive censorship on Nintendo's behalf (with the title being changed from "Holy" to "Fire") is a little uncool, and that the Japanese version has different sound effects, which are actually more annoying than the ones in the U.S. game, so there's something to look forward to if you're a gamer in the U.S. Firestriker isn't bad, but it's very... ah screw it. You probably know what I'm going to say anyway. At least you can add it to that list of games that uses the multi-tap."
"I can think of worst games than this... but it's not great."
"It is a very odd game that plays like Arkanoid, but has RPG story elements. Very strange hybrid,
but it is a lot of fun and can be played co-op. I highly recommend you try it if you have the chance."
