  1. Sega has basically taken their arcade property, which by itself was very limited in depth, and has notably enhanced it for the home market.
  2. It rocks, despite some small flaws. Good replay value can make a game go a long way.
  3. 85
    AFO really shines when you get eight players in the heat of battle, and when the game releases, players will know how war is truly hell& a crazy, trash-talking, teeth-grinding, fun type of hell.
  4. A game that won't make the Classics list any time soon, but if you're looking for easy-to-play yet hard-to-beat game play, you'll be all over it.
  5. As a multiplayer game it treads over most of the competition. The solo mode borders on evil thanks to its difficulty level.
  6. Offers up a solid dose of good old-fashioned gameplay wrapped up in slick graphics and an innovative use of technology.
  7. Fun, simple, and another good reason for dial-up Internet users to get online with the Dreamcast, but AFO isn't going to win any awards for depth or longevity.
  8. 70
    Brainless action-shooting doesn’t get more engaging than AFO. But without depth, the destruction eventually gets repetitious and tiring to the eyes.
  9. If you've got the online connection, there's fun to be had with AFO. Sure, the online server could have been better geared for game matching and keyboard support on top of the voice chat wouldn't have hurt, but the simple action and smooth gameplay make for a decent game.
  10. There’s just not much here to keep me coming back. [Oct 2001, p.150]
  11. The real-time chat feature practically makes the game. There’s room for much more depth, but AFO is a great pick-up and play shooter, or 7-day rental.

    Good, loads of action. If you like carnage from the safety of your arm-chair then this was made for you.
