Cobra Command is the CD version of the famous laser disc-based chopper battle arcade hit. This CD game is all full- motion animation, cockpit-view graphics with explosive stereo sound effects and digitized voice. The storyline is brief and to the point...pilot your armored Cobra attack helicopter against terrorist enclaves all over the world, taking them out with your Vulcan Cannon and Heat Seeking Missiles.
You start the game in New York City with five lives and three continues. The controls on this game are easy to master. Use your direction pad to move the crosshairs of your weapon and configurable A, B and C buttons to shoot the cannon and missiles. The only time you need to use the direction pad to redirect your helicopter is when you see the bold green arrow in your cockpit flashing a particular direction. Fail to make these extreme high-G maneuvers and you'll see (and hear) some of the most impressive crash and bum explosions seen to date in a vidgame.
The best way to get from stage to stage is to learn the attack patterns of your enemies... so that you'll be able to move the crosshairs and take them out in the three or so seconds allowed. The stages are great fun. You'll fly through the Grand Canyon, blasting away at gun emplacements, other helos and planes while navigating through the cliffs. Your next stage is the Pacific against huge ships (take out the big guns), submarines and fight squadrons coming off a flat-top aircraft carrier. Then on to Easter Island. Fly around those big stone heads (oops, damaged a few) and take on an entrenched enclave. There's more: a rocky, cliffed Fortress level, Rome's Ruins and even a Desert stage. In total, you have nine different stages to beat.
The ability to choose your level of play and configure your missile and dual Vulcan Cannons is a real plus. This title is fun and challenging for all levels of gamers. The game can be beaten. Timing is the key Don't hesitate to listen to the unseen navigator: "Come on, Captain, go left, Left, LEFT!" Overall you'll find that this title is top rate. In addition to all the action of the original arcade game, there are more levels, more sounds, more digitized voice and some very spectacular animation. For aerial shooter lovers, this game will put you into action and adventure that only exist on "The Next Level."
