Only one escape pod is left on a doomed ship holding four renegade prison mine workers and four highly-trained, power-armored military grunts. Only one can win, and only one will survive the cosmic carnage about to take place...
The graphics are cool, and the animations are astounding! The graphics were really an achievement!
Those colors have to go! After a while, it just gets too distracting to look at the whole spectrum at once.
PIXILATION! Some of the scaling effects look way overdone, producing a pixilated, distorted character.
Cosmic Carnage is a first-generation 32X title, so I wasn't expecting much. The graphics aren't 32-Bit. and the game play leaves much to be desired. The story is cool, and the endings are dependent upon how fast you beat up the other aliens. The Giger Alien clone was cool, and I like how certain characters had interchangeable parts. Nice features, but the game itself is poor.
Okay, granted it's the first fighting game out for the 32X, but this just isn't very good. The control is reminiscent of Eternal Champions for Genesis, which wasn't bad but did need tweaking. The graphics are nothing special, but the color palette is quite impressive. Don't even think about playing it with a three-button controller, though. Cosmic Carnage has its ups and downs.
As the first fighting game for the 32X, I am not at all impressed with it. With an exception to a few special scaling effects, the graphics seemed as if it could have been done without the 32X adapter. To add to that, the sound is also very close to what it would sound like from the Genesis alone. About the only thing I like about CC was the ability to equip the fighters with various armor parts.
Probably the most impressive feature of this game is that it adds a new level of technique by letting you select different types of armor. Besides that, it is an average fighting game. The moves and characters are interesting, but the color and graphics sure don't break the Genesis barriers. The blood is refreshing for a fighting cart, but there is nothing special about it, especially with the 32X.
