Summary: Endlich, nach langem Warten ist es da: das Terroristen-erschieß-spiel-nr.1 für N64. Doch ist es wirklich so gut? Sagen wir es so: tolle Steuerung, geil, wirklich geile Animationen aber leider,leider hat das auch seine Schattenseiten: trübe Grafik, beschissene Kameraführung, langweiliges Leveldesign, wenige Waffen und schwere Gegner. Auch die Story hat nicht unbedingt das Niveau von Metal Gear.
