Cyber Troopers Virtual On
a game by Sega
Perhaps Sega's most visually impressive game was Virtual On: Cyber Troopers. This 3-D polygon robot animation game is being produced by AM3 and really looked hot. Slightly reminiscent of Namco's Cyber Sled, CT places you as a futuristic soldier who patrols an area and must destroy everything in it. You are armed with a sword, beam rifle, bombs and other weapons and it is a seek-and-destroy-type game. Clean up one area and move on to the next. Since it takes place on a pseudo 3-D playfield. the game is played with two joysticks that control all of your directional movements and fire the various weapons.
Visually the game was probably the best at the JAMMA show. When it comes to nonstop action, this was the best. It drew constant crowds. Based on the players' reactions, it looks like Sega might have another game genre well in control.
