I was eagerly anticipating the release of this game, as it said to offer more violence and more explosions than any other game. The plot is relatively simple aliens have invaded earth, you play a millennium solider, and it's your job to use the biggest guns to create the biggest explosions which should wipe out the bad guys. The graphics on the game are impeccable the different areas of the game of varied and rich and the explosions are a sight to see. The action is fast and furious, as you would imagine from a game like this. This game is really addictive; the sound effects are great especially when you kill an alien they do make a very satisfying ugh as they go down. The game has 20 missions, they start hard and get harder, although I have to say after the first 10 missions the game does lose it's appeal, the areas tend to look the same. A great game though, impeccable graphics and great sound make another winner on the Dreamcast.
i've only played the demo of this game and at first i thought it was good, but it got boring quickly, especially when fighting the same enemies over and over, only picking up a new weopon every so often, and then using all the ammo in seconds, this is really annoying, i've never played the demo since, cause i began to hate the game, so my advice to you, dont but this game, if you really wanna play it, just rent it, its not worth buying, infact if i were you i wouldnt even rent it, just leave it on the shelf and everything will be ok!
This game reminded me of a game called akira warriors. It is so fun, you can just pick up and play this game at any time. It features tons of amazing weaponary. The point of the game is to save the world from a huge alien attack. To do this you must go around and destroy everything and anything in sight. The dreamcast can handle around 30 enemies on the screen at any one time making the ame very fast paced and arcadey. There a huge bosses at the end of each level of which there is a total of 25. Making the games longlivety very good. Overall this game is a must-have in my opinion as you'll want to play it all the time.
Rage Software’s Millennium Soldier: Expendable follows the company’s tradition of all-out graphical extravaganzas as it explodes onto the Dreamcast in Infogrames first wave of 128-bit titles. The game is an unashamed shoot ‘em spectacular which follows the top-down theme developed by the classic Commando and a thousand other 80s coin-ops. The game is based on an apparently sensible theory – take the popular shoot ‘em genre, marry it to 128-bit 3D graphics, and put it in front of an action hungry console audience. Sadly, the game itself fails to deliver on a number of important counts. Until recently, Rage’s games received great praise for their graphical content but were generally slammed as far as gameplay was concerned. Incoming was the first title to be somewhat unfairly tarred with this brush. The original PC version of Expendable met the same fate. Deadball Zone on the Playstation was, quite frankly, an all time low for the UK developer. Nice graphics, shame about the gameplay was a sentiment often voiced towards poor Rage. Thankfully, the recent UEFA Striker (soon to appear on Dreamcast) blew away the critics with compulsive gameplay that gave the mighty FIFA series a run for its money. A new era of Rage games appears to have been born – titles with flash graphics and lasting gameplay. So where does the Dreamcast version of Millennium Soldier fit into all of this? Sadly, it’s of the Rage old-school. More or less a straight conversion of the PC version of the game, Expendable on the Dreamcast is nice to look at but poor to play. The key elements of a top-down shooter appear to be in place – an arsenal of weapons worthy of Sadam Hussain, evil aliens to be blasted to smithereens, and some big, bad bosses which have to be pumped full of bullets before they explode in a pyrotechnic extravaganza. But, despite these promising factors, the game still completely fa
ils to grab your attention. Millenium Soldier is a deeply dull game. Walking around, blasting everything that moves rapidly becomes very repetitive. With a fistful of lives and five credits to toy with, losing a bit of health seems of little consequence. You can steam through four or five levels before you finally die, only to realise that you cannot really be bothered to resume the mindless destruction. Lacking the lasting interest of classics such as The Chaos Engine, Milennium Solider is little more than a brainless blaster which cannot stand up to modern day games. Even the spectacular graphics conspire to Milennium Soldier’s downfall. There’s often so much flying around the screen that you can easily lose track of exactly what’s going on. This is made even worse in the two-player version of the game as you often find yourself losing sight of which of the two gung-ho commandos you are controlling. It’s frustrating and prolonged periods of playing can lead to serve headaches! When you first pick up Milennium Soldier you find yourself wanting to like it. The flashy graphics and traditional top down view initially suggest a promising title. Five minutes of play quickly shatter any illusions that Milennium Soldier is anything more than a deeply flawed, mindless shoot ‘em up. Rage’s own Incoming is a better bet for action hungry Dreamcast fans, although even that suffers from slightly repetitive gameplay. Hopefully UEFA Striker marks a new era in Rage Software’s games and titles such as Milennium Soldier will be quickly forgotten.
What a crap game, little pussy men running around with their pussy guns!Game desiners should be able to do better than that, its a like a stupid Game Boy game-2d! Dreamcast should be able to do better than that, it is so shod that I could not belleve it when I rented the poo game! I totally hate it and advise NO ONE to buy it! I'm sorry but it is that bad I know it does not look it but in my eyes it is.All my mates hate it and think it is "$%&*()_" to!There is no fun in it and no adventure either also you cannot blow any thing up!
Considering we are now in the 21st century you would start to think that Sega would get over those stupid little games with litte men running about, Well millenium soldier is one of those games! For gods sake its like one of the games off the mega-drive, on a 128 bit super power consloe its a poor game if you want to see some good games for the dreamcast, go onto advanced search & search for the member dibb and that will have some rivews on good games so chek it out!
