hard vs entertaining
I am more familiar with the genesis version, but if it is like most titles at the time, the differences are minute. This is really entertaining if you like to side scroll a level and kill things. there are codes to make the blood more gory, and to give you a fighting chance. there are objectives for each level, like save the hostages, and one point it is just stay alive, and to succeed, is extremely hard. I enjoy the inclusion of many elements from the films and projections of their potential weaponry like the plasma gun. All in all, I have spent much of my youth on this title, be it on the genesis, and it is certainly worth picking up. the controls can be a little frustrating at times because robocop is quite slow at inopportune moments, and his jumping needs work, but play it, then play it with the codes and have fun. I am a huge fan of the franchises and feel they did a fantastic job representing them both in one game. the controls and obsene difficulty are what strips the perfect score from this title.
