FreeStrike

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

A few minutes playing FreeStrike, and between rounds you ll be groping in your pocket for quarters. It s that close to classic coin-operated scrollers such as Raiden and 1942. Waves of enemy ships come in from every side, asteroids tumble by, and you're shooting everything in sight, trying to blast enemies, collect power-ups, and keep your shields a notch above zero. Ah, good times. The graphics are a notch above servicable, but the retro arcade sound and humorous voice effects are a lot of fun. Performance is FreeStrike s main problem. The animations often stutter, even on a 3.2GHz machine. The trial version offers only one level, which even an average gamer quickly will beat at the highest difficulty setting. The $9.95 price is reasonable, but one-time arcade wizards can find better-executed games with which to relive their glory days.
