Total Recall

Read the review here.

“Certain design choices and gameplay flaws are simply ridiculous, such as the movie theater on the first level that provides an extra life for watching credits, the death screen that says “’I’ll be back!” despite that being a line from an entirely different Schwarzenegger film, horrible hit detection issues, flickering problems, too-common bugs such as the propensity for enemies to appear on the other side of the screen when hit off of one, etc.”

The thing that gets me about this game is that it does nothing well. Everything about it is sub-par. Even among license games, this is a turd, and probably stands as the perfect example of a bad game based on a movie.

I don’t know if it ever got advertised on television, but I made a commercial for it anyway, based on how I think it could’ve been promoted. Enjoy.
