Interplay's nonstop action game Loaded is set to appear on the Saturn. You play as one of six demented individuals trying to escape from a maximum security prison. Along the way, you'll find lots of enemies to pulp into red juicy chunks. Loaded pulls no punches in the gore department. Some of the things you tight range from mental patients to regenerating zombies. Anyway you look at it, Loaded is a tough game. Each level has you searching for parts or keys to get further in the game. Loaded is--for the most part--a maze game. Hidden in each level are secret areas filled with power-ups.
Each character can increase his/her strength many times. The firepower can fill the screen. Think of Loaded as a 32-Bit Smash TV. If you want intense action, Loaded has it.
It's currently unknown how Loaded will translate to the Saturn or if anything has been added. Check out future issues for more info.

Not too shabby. It's very similar to the version available for the PlayStation but since not everyone has both a PS and a Saturn, let me start anew. The graphic are gritty and dark which fits the game perfectly. I like the way the camera zooms in and out depending on the enemies' proximity. There is a large-and I mean LARGE--quantity of blood and carnage here. If you're not in the mood for violence, don't play Loaded. If you want some flying body parts, Loaded is the perfect game for you. There are some pixelization problems at times but nothing major. I did find myself getting a little bored after the third or fourth level.
Interplay did an excellent job promoting a game that really does not have a lot of substance to it, except for the shock value. It's like a Friday the 13th movie. You may watch it for a little bit, but probably won't want to see It through to the end. Why? Loaded is all the same. Same action, same guns--total redundancy. The bloody novelty of it all wears off by the second stage. I'll be surprised if anybody even bothers to play far enough to see the end. On the plus side, the graphics and sounds are sharp. The mood is perfectly set for this type of game. So, try it out, then sit back and wait patiently for the follow-up. Reloaded.
Loaded is both pretty and twisted with colorful 3-D graphics and generous helpings of blood and guts, but It's not really fun to play. The game gets very repetitive--and boring-after a while, since all you do is wander around a maze-like fortress and blow away countless enemies. Loaded does have good music and sound effects, and the various "heroes' (actually, they're raving psychotics) you control are well animated. Their powered-up weapons and special attacks can do some spectacular-looking damage, but this game's levels are all too similar to each other to hold my interest for long. I'd rather play Gauntlet.
Loaded will always remain a great run around and shoot'-em-up title no matter what system it's on. The action is intense throughout the third-person perspective-based levels. Play is fast and exhilarating as your character attempts to clear out the levels infested with the sometimes plotting foes. These features make Loaded fun to play, but the most important feature of this title lies in the amazing lighting effects In each and every room. Even though the stages all have a dark and forbidden feel, the lighting effects bring more of an eerie feel that just plain darkness couldn't do. Great for gore freaks who love lots of blood.
