  1. To be fair, games aren't meant to replicate the dynamics of cinema. Especially ones like "State of Emergency," the anarchic kill-'em-all from which A Fistful of Boomstick derives its engine.
  2. Under normal circumstances, this would be just tedious, but combined with endless deadite enemies and little in the way of ammunition and health packs, it's a sermon on frustration. [July 2003, p.79]
  3. This is a fistful of something, all right. And it's not to be stepped in, taken internally, or flung at humans. [Aug 2003, p.81]
