Advantages: Fun for two in a co-op mode, You get to be Starsky and Hutch!!, You can win music clips and piuctures from the TV series
Disadvantages: need a light-gun, levels are quite similar, The game can be quite tricky
Starsky and Hutch, is the computer game based on the classic series!
Now, I really enjoyed this game, but that is because I have some things, that you really need before you can enjoy it!!
I have a friend, to play co-operatively with me, a steering wheel, and a G-Con2 light-gun!
This game was made for two? you and a friend take on the persona of Starsky and Hutch, American 1970s cops! One of you really needs a light-gun to shoot the bad guys, and the other will be in charge of steering, so a steering wheel completes the look!
There are three seasons made up of 6 episodes to play through.
Its not just about getting the bad guys though, its about getting them with style. So you need to complete missions, and play complete stunts etc, to keep the views interested! You score Viewing Rating points for stunts, blowing up things, and catching badies, there are also targets along the way for the shooter to hit, to boost the ratings.
The levels are quite samey, they involve chasing or following, badies, and shooting various items. As I said on one player, this would become very dull, but with a friend it?s a laugh a minute!
You get ranked for each level you complete, with either a gold, silver or bronze badge, but if you only just scrape through you get a doughnut!!
The game is an excellent laugh, with lots of things to pick up along the way. For either driving over or shooting special hidden tokens, you can release photos from the original series, music clips etc!
There is even a free-roam mode, if you just want explore the city and its stunts, without the worry of completing mission tasks.
The only disadvantage is, there are no level settings, for easy ? medium or hard! Its just set as it is! Now I am quite a hard-core gamer, and I know I struggled with some of the levels. I genuinely think that the last level is actually impossible, and not being able to finish it is quite disappointing!
