Desert Strike – Return to the Gulf


Click to Play


Console: Sega Game Gear

As comprehensive a shooter as Desert Strike may seem far too sizeable a package for scaling down to the baby Game Gear; but if the Master System can do it, Segas portable is here to give it a good shot, which in this case turns out to be a surprisingly complete effort. Its admirable just how much of the 16-bit shooter has made it to the Game Gear.

Choose your co-pilot, receive your briefing from not-Norman-Schwarzkopf, check your list of objectives to be completed however you see fit, register enemies on your radar, and fly into the sand-filled combat zone. The Game Gear port will keep you busy with as many opponents, ground- and airborne, as can reasonably be expected.
