I never played this game until it was released on
the HIT SQUAD budget label (skin-flint) and so I was a
late comer to the game. Needless to say that I couldn't
wait to play it to the end, which I achieved via a cheat
listing produced by Warren Pilkington (check out my
Cheat & Beat 9 program on
www.hackersoft.co.uk to see the listing in action).
It's a cool game that kept me going for

SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The ending starts with a spooky and realistic sound
effect of our hero breathing in and out (this doesn't
work too well on the CCS64 emulator). Whilst he
breathes, a whole host of hi-res screens appear that
tells the final story ending. The ending comes to a
close showing our hero with his arm around ... erm ...
someone and a fab ending tune plays in the background.
- Brendan: Have
to say I liked the ending - a lot. The music effects in
the background during the final sequence are pretty
spooky and the static pics telling the end story are
nice. I think one of the best endings I have seen in a
while - good enough for a gold medal - I'm not sure. But
a definite 8/10 I think.
Vinny: I do
think this ending deserves an eight and only misses the
top mark due to the lack of animation and an ending
scroller. The static pictures have been implemented well
and certainly fit with the atmosphere of the ending. The
final ending tune also adds to that atmosphere.
