     Reviews for BeachHead 2000 in Action for PC-Personal Computer ( PC ) :

General/Summary:

Many years ago I used to play a game called Beachead. I dont even remember what I played it on. May have been the commodore 64. I remember liking this game so when I saw an updated PC version I didnt think twice about buying it. With
the huge advances in game play since then I couldnt wait to get home to play this updated version. I must say I was not dissapointed. Please remember that this was and is a simple game. Many may call it mindless fun. So what if it is. This is an arcade type game and cant be compared to todays state of the art games like Alice, Dues EX, etc. There is something to be said about games that you can load in seconds and just start playing without having to read a novel to get familiar with the game. It is a wonderful starter game as well as a nice break from the info intensive games for seasoned gamers. One nice thing about this game is that it loads to your hard drive so the disk is not required to play the game. This is great for breaks at work
when you want to relieve some stress and kill some bad guys. Just click on the icon and blast away. There are a few bugs but nothing serious.
Although I must say that the bugs that it does have are unacceptable considering todays technology. Anyway if you like shoot em up war games I would reccomend this game. 20 bucks may be a little high for this game. I would like to have seen this game priced around 15 bucks. But I dont feel it is a rip off at 20. Some of you may think I rated this game a little high but remember I am not comparing this to the state of the art titles. This game is just fun to play. Bottom line is that you like this type of game you will like it. If your on a budget and are saving your money for "big titles" only you might want to pass until the price comes down. This game should not be trashed like I heard. It has its place in the gaming world.



Gameplay:

Game play is simple, just shoot everything infront of you. The best way to describe this game is that it's just like the D-day invasion scene in Saving Private Ryan. The levels start out simple and increase in diffculty as you go.
The first level is just troops and than planes,helicopters,jets,bombers,tanks,troop transports are added in trough the levels. It is the same screen through out but that does not detract from the game. It is just plane fun to blast away at the enemy. You can kind of compare to the old missile command game. It was the same thing over and over again but it was fun. There is no end to game you just keep getting harder levels. The controls are simple just point and click to mouse and there are some keyboard keys that need to be used but nothing difficult. I really like calling in the air strike to take care of the advancing troops. You get different weapons to use like a 50 cal machine gun, cannon and surface to air missiles and the air strike.
A supply plane flys buy frequently dropping parachuted box for you to shoot for ammo and shields. Again nothing new here but just entertaining. Now for the bugs. There is some frame rate slow down when you get bombed and y
our screen is filled with fire and debris from the explosion. This really stinks when your trying to aim at something that is bearing down on you because you cant with the chop. The game occasionally locks up andsometimes there is no sound at all. This may not be a bug but something like the sound of the ocean would be better than silence.


Graphics:

The graphics are not incredible or great they are
good. And good is good enough for this game. I think all the vehicles are done well as well as the soldiers. The area around the bunker does pixel as well as the soldiers when they get real close but nothing really bad. The supply plane looks cool when it flys over you and the tanks and troop transports also are well done. The slowdown mentioned is stupid but does not happen that often to ruin the game.



Sound:

The sound is also good. The sound of the tanks and troop transports are right on and the fly over of the supply plane is very well done. Gun fire and explosions are done well and I really like the metal ping of the bullets hitting the bunker just like in Saving Private Ryan. The jet sounds are a little weak and helicopters sound ok. All in all a good sound package.
