you bought a Predator Light gun for Die Hard Trilogy and it is now
gathering dust on the shelves? Well there is another game in the
stores that makes use of the plastic firearm and that is Area 51.
It's a shooting game that takes the theme of an alien invasion.
Basically as you wander around corridors of a high security
building, Alien and Human characters pop up and attempt to reduce
your precious life bar. Simply take aim and shoot them. That's
basically it. Just like the arcades.
If you do not own a light gun then the game can be played with a
joypad or a mouse but this is not recommended as you will probably
die more times than you reload.
The scenery moves around of its own free will allowing you to
concentrate on your aim. This method works quite well in the one
player game but more so in the two player mode. There is more
chance of survival if you tackle the enemy back to back with a
mate, and because your movements are pre-set your companion will
not be able to constantly drag you away from the action which is a
fault is most two player shoot-em-ups.
