    Review ESWAT: City Under Siege

    All is not well in Cyber City. Criminals are running amok - looting, pillaging and raping the city of all its worth.

    This was one of the first games I ever loaded into my Megadrive and it still sticks in my memory as one of the best action platformers for the machine. Although it isn't a conversion of the arcade game of the same name (neither was the Master System version, strangely), Megadrive..

About The Game

All is not well in Cyber City. Criminals are running amok - looting and pillaging the city of all its worth. Quite a lot of people aren't really too pleased about the rampant activities of these heartless crooks, and this includes Cyber City's mayor, who sets up the ESWAT (Enhanced Special Weapons and Tactics) division of the Cyber Police to deal with the evil, criminal menace.

The player takes on the mantle of a hard-bitten SWAT cop, who seems to be dealing with the criminal epidemic all on his own, with only his trusty service pistol for company. In order to prove to the powers-that-be that he's eligable to join the ESWAT elite, two levels worth of eight-way scrolling platform blasting have to be tackled - each with a very nasty end-of-level crime boss to be exterminated. Then it's on to all the fun and excitement of donning the specialised ESWAT armour and using all manner of extra weaponry to blast these punks into oblivion!
