  1. Deep it isn’t, but there’s no denying that this is one of the most action-packed titles you’ll play on the GBA for some time.

    Features stupendously well-animated characters and a boopy-yet-catchy soundtrack. The control's spot-on, too.

    A big collection of blast-'em-all missions packed witih combat action. [Nov 2002, p.226]
  4. Due to the size of the screen, the already slim margin for error is made even slimmer, and the lack of aura bombs means you’ll have to fight through even the stickiest of situations.
  5. A mixed bag with some really awesome levels and gameplay; yet it has bland graphics and music.
  6. Pocket Games

    A mixed bag. [Spring 2003, p.29]

    The SNES port looks great, it really comes to life on the GBA but the NES levels are embarrassing. This Frankenstein piece-together must have been getting the bum's rush out of the lab and into the stores in time for the Christmas cash grab.

    I think this game explodes perfectly the graphics capacity of the Game Boy Advance.

    A decent port of the SNES version with the two Hard Corps levels but suffers a bit by having only two difficulty levels and only one weapon A decent port of the SNES version with the two Hard Corps levels but suffers a bit by having only two difficulty levels and only one weapon slot. Otherwise, it's a worthy game to add to your GBA collection. Collapse
