Apocalypse (PS1)

Postby VideoGameCritic » December 30th, 2021, 11:18 am

Since Die Hard Arcade didn't really have Bruce Willis, I tried a game that did: Apocalypse.

You may recall this dark, run-and-gun explosion marathon from the late 90's. Finally getting a chance to review it, and I'm enjoying it. It's got one of those "shoot in any direction" control schemes not unlike Xeni Crisis.

I think the main problem with this is, it's so dark and the camera angles are constantly changing, making it hard to follow the action at times.

I remember it being okay. It had BW in it and he was paid a lot of money to do the game. I think they should have found a cheaper actor and spent more time on the game.

Nah, Bruce is awesome in this game. His wisecracks are worth the price of admission.

While I concede there are a lot of technical issues (dark visuals, crazy camera) I love how unapologetically kick ass this game is. It's kind of a rush.
