Metal Gear Solid On N64, But Stupider

Pika312, epinions.com
25 June 2001
  • Summary: The Nintendo 64 is missing good action games, or games for that matter. Winback is a great action title, but it's been done already.
  • Pros: Stealth, targeting system, variety of weapons, challenging, artificial intelligence is pretty fair, multiplayer feature.
  • Cons: Controls, some camera angles, too little ammo, lasers and close combat will easily kill you.

Operation Winback to give it's real name

Fory, Ciao
9 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "Operation Winback was highly anticipated months before it's release but the sales didn't show this so it resulted in it almost disappearing off the sales charts. The game was hyped as the N64 Metal gear and only the nintendo magazines gave it percenteges in the high 80's and 90's while the Multiformat mags gave it average scores. The storyline is pretty weak it's the usual, terrorists have hijacked a dangerous satellite blah blah stolen to destroy ...
  • Pros: Good longevity initially good action
  • Cons: Repetitive ok graphics and sound

  • Excerpt: "Winback is an action adventure game which trys hard to follow in the footsteps of classic playstation games Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter, but sadly fails to incorprate the best parts of either game. The problems with winback are; the graphics are dull and univiting, only about two colours were used in the game grey and dark grey. The camera is very annoying as it never quite wants to follow you, which leads to some untimely and annoying deaths. ...
  • Pros: A good attempt at an action adventure .
  • Cons: Relies too much on one aspect of gameplay, with little variation .

Metal Gear Solid für N64

el_barto2, Ciao
8 September 2000
  • 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.
  • Pros: Verdammt geile Animationen
  • Cons: Lest den Bericht den es sind ne ganze MEnge
