Advantages: The Game
Disadvantages: A few
Fur Fighters, a game that is now available for just £7.99 from offline stores, as well as online – from such places as Special Reserve, and really is a must have title even at 3 times that price – under £10 is an absolute bargain and you really should take advantage of this incredible offer!!!
So, firstly, what do the magazines say? Edge – one of the most popular all format gaming magazines rates Fur Fighters at 8/10, a very high score, they rarely give 9’s and I can’t remember when a 10 was awarded, so 8 – very good score – quote: “One of the best titles on Dreamcast”. Games-master award it 90%, saying it’s “The most satisfying gun action around... …it’s literally a blast.” Which is absolutely correct! Arcade award the highest score – on a 5 star rating they give Bizarre Creations little cracker a superb 5/5 “Fur Fighters is Fantastic”.
I personally think that this is a delightful game, on of the best ones around. There’s a multiplayer mode as well as single player so even when you complete the 36 fantastically designed levels, you will still be able to play in the 2-4player modes - great fun, just like Golden Eye whereby you select a level and go around in the fluff match! Basically, this could be described “just another Golden Eye clone”, but Bizarre Creations have really gone to town with Fur Fighters.
The idea – simply, one player you make your way through the 36 levels, after selecting a character from 6 funny looking animals – it’s funny and childish at first look, but you’ll soon be blasting your way through to beat the bosses at the end of the levels – 15 superb weapons will be at your disposal, you’ll have a great time utilising them I am sure! It’s a shoot ‘em up that looks all cute and cuddly, but when it gets down to it, the game is definitely right to be sui
table for 11 years of age +.
Graphically impressive, very well rendered 3D, with some colourful looking levels, effective scenery and characters – really well done, a graphical delight in my view! The control system is simple to get to grips with – two different views to run around shooting with, and simple jumping, moving and climbing moves (for certain characters).
It’s a really great entertaining game, with a one-player mode that will take at least 30 hours to complete – a great game that I would award the full 5 stars for.
Thanks for reading.
