This definitely shows why they never made games like this. Even though there have been seriously worse game than this by far. The controls suffer a bit when attacking as the character moves forward and into the attacking enemy...that gets really annoying. Plus they get cheap shots in when their weapon don't even hit and you still take damage. Not a horrible job on this....but.....bleh !!
I admit it's not fantastic, but it's at least as good as all the crappy shooters they made back then. In my book, a crappy brawler is automatically better than a crappy shooter.
