Review: Ocean made a brave decision in ditching the isometric style that proved so succesful with the original game and instead employed a novel and highly effective system that looks very much like a comic book. Even with the limited graphical abilities of the Spectrum the results are very pleasing and there is a great deal of depth to the game as well. An excellent game that has stood the test of time well.
