  • Summary: As a lone gunner, you're the last defense against an onslaught of enemy fire. Keep a steady aim and blast away at land, sea, and air forces as they rush you from every direction. Engage yourself in limitless levels of white-knuckle action, stunning photo-realistic graphics, and earthshaking sound effects. [WizardWorks] Expand

  1. By all rights and intentions, BeachHead 2000 should have been a flaming piece of crap. I'm flabbergasted...Scientists are at a loss to explain why this title is so damned addictive.
  2. A stress buster with mindless fun.
  3. Offers plenty of mindless fun that gives your brain the chance to go on cruise control.
  4. Too bad repetitive action, mediocre graphics, and a limited kraut’s-eye-view perspective make slaying Private Ryan and company as predictable as an episode of "Hogan’s Heroes."
  5. Ultimately, the game wears thin—and quickly. The first dozen levels are pretty manageable but then it becomes an exercise in frustration.
  6. If you haven't figured it out by now, we'll spell it out for you: Even at $20, this game is not worth your cash.

    Don't let the snobs sway you. Beachhead is cool. Sometimes all you really want is a simple game that lets you blast away for as long as you can stand it. It is addictive. Get the cheat codes and really have fun. The soldiers attacking the beach are a little slow and stupid, but that is how I like my enemies. The onslaught of soldiers, plans, copters and tanks is challenging enough. Expand

    This game is fine, sure its not the greatest graphics, so what, it plays well. Its actually much more realistic than the fantasy roll playing games the psuedo-intellectuals play.[NOTE:: I did not say all that play role playing games are that type] Like movie critics, if they don't like a movie it's probably good & entertaining. My only wish is that the levels changed a little more. Past about 20 they repeat the pattern.Possibly siighly more difficult as it goes. I have been up to about level 150 on my 98 machine. If you like FAST try it on a screaming XP machine, No way to keep up and win. Expand
