  1. A dismal attempt at a resurrection of an age-old favorite genre.
  2. The few improvements it includes do little to address the flaws of the original game, and since the new game is just more of the same endless waves of enemies, it can't really be recommended even to those who might have enjoyed Beach Head 2000 in some way.
  3. What with so little variety in weapons, foes, or physical settings, the game loses what little charm it has in a mere matter of minutes.

The reviewers here are all mostly out of their minds trying to trash the game. This is pure arcade delight in an era of increasingly complicated games that seem to put off several of the non-game crazy fans like dads and others. Full Review »

    This is my dad's favorite game of all time so I have to give it a ten. I think it's really not being appreciated for what it is. It This is my dad's favorite game of all time so I have to give it a ten. I think it's really not being appreciated for what it is. It isn't supposed to be complicated. It's supposed to be a simple little time waster. Gamer's Pulse has the right idea. Full Review »
