Synopsis: Simply hilarious.
I don't know where to begin.
I'm at a loss for words.
I'm laughing so hard right now that my sides hurt, tears are forming in my eyes, and I just crapped myself.
(after laughing like a fat man eating pig ears for ten minuets.) HaaHaaLeeHaaHaaWhoo!.. 'Oh' my goodness. This game is definitely SCREWED UP. Let me start from the top
Youíre controlling a submarine named Red October in 1st person view, and I THINK that the object of the game is to destroy any thing that moves on your radar. Things that move include other subs, large hammers, and mines. Don't spazz out on the guns though, you only have about 23 torpedos.
It's very hard to tell whatís trying to kill you. Also, sometimes the thing trying to kill you will teleport across the screen after you. Cheap.
The only reason I give the music a 9 is because of how funny it sounds! It kinda sounds like a mix between circus music & the soundtrack from the NES version of Jaws. This is one of the most messed up soundtracks for any game in the world.
Basically this game stinks. Itís too hard, confusing, and just plain stupid. Read the book instead.
