  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. Offers plenty of mindless fun that gives your brain the chance to go on cruise control.
  3. A stress buster with mindless fun.
  4. A mindless little distraction that requires reflexes, not brains.
  5. 60
    This game is strangely addicting just like "Missile Command" used to be.
  6. Unless you happen to be stuck in a beach house on a rainy day and this is the only game disc around, I would have to say, skip it.
  7. Oddly enjoyable for a few hours, but the fun runs out quicker than your AA guns' ammo.
  8. 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."
  9. Ultimately, the game wears thin—and quickly. The first dozen levels are pretty manageable but then it becomes an exercise in frustration.
  10. "BeachHead 2000"'s limited gameplay won't hold your attention for long.
  11. In modern times, however, when even simple retro-games like "Frogger" get massive face lifts and hordes of options, there is little room for a game that prides itself on pure simplicity and repetitive action.
  12. 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.

    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 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. Full Review »

A games quality should not be judged based on how complicated it is. This straight-forward shoot pretty much everything that moves and survive game is always enjoyable when I pull it out to play. The "Daily Radar" review people simply have no vision beyond their own narrow view of what a good game should entail. Full Review »
