Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Platoon'

Rating:5 User: p13z

Ocean's 1988 movie tie-in.
One of my favourite spectrum games from the later years of the machine, and technically impressive. The game is a shoot'em-up, with each level as a different sub-game, giving you the opportunity to shoot the enemy from a variety of angles. The '3d' and first person shooter bits are extremely well done, and appear to push the limits of the spectrum.
Playing the game again recently, it struck me that it seems to be entirely unsuitable for a tie-in to the hard-hitting anti war film. But it is a great game.
