I have been playing a bunch of Blue Lightning for the High Score Club lately and a few things have come to my attention. -its fun -playable -has a rocking soundtrack So why does it constantly get so much hate? I think it's actually one of the better more playable games on the Jaguar, and actually stands up pretty well to other games of the era, such as Afterburner. Here are my thoughts: Graphics: People always give it a hard time for looking like hell but is it really that bad? The cut scenes are respectable and the in-game play looks decent, though obviously not as impressive as some of the Saturn/PS1 offerings of the era. It's in standing with what the system was capable of and other 16-32 bit systems of the era were putting out. Par for the course i'd say, and certainly not ugly, with detailed environments full of buildings, land features, plant life and enemies. Sounds: Sound effects are good, and the soundtrack kicks ass, with great mid-90's generic video game rock sounds wailing from your speakers! Gameplay: The games control is decent, and enemies in front of you are easy enough to target. There are multiple levels per location on the map, multiple planes, weapons, options etc. There are sky and ground missions with objectives, and the speed is controllable and just right. Controls: Easy three button control system, with the ability to put on afterburners and hit the air brake on the number-pad, whats not to like? Auto-save feature is helpful. So are people just mad at this game for not saving the jaguar? Why all the hate?
