  • Summary: I first fell in love with The Red Star six years ago. At that time this arcade-style shooter/brawler was one of Acclaim's most promising games.

I could tell you all about Makita's rush to save her father, about Troikia and Kar Dartha and the Skyfurnace R.S.S. Or about Maya's guardsman, Kyuzo. I could tell you about all all of these things.
