Skeleton Krew is a decent shooter, with awesome two-player action. The graphics are good and the enemies react intelligently. Sometimes there will be an instant hit or two. One thing that bugged me was the steam that automatically kills. If you're in armor, why would you get hurt? The audio is standard Genesis fare. The action is intense enough to thrill any hardcore gamer, but it does get monotonous. Still. Skeleton Krew is worth trying, and perhaps even buying.
Skeleton Krew gets some originality points in my book simpty because there aren't many games like this out there. Although the walking pace is a bit slow at times, there is plenty of everything to shoot at. Rotating the gun independently is an idea that never really stuck with me. but it may appeal to other gamers. The perspective is easy on the eyes and you get a clear view of everything around you. This game is cool and a lot of fun to play.
Normally I do not like games with a pseudo 3-D look, mainly because I think the action is slowpaced and pretty boring. Skeleton Krew detaches itself from this stigma. The action is fast with enemies who seem to come from everywhere. The Two-player Simultaneous Mode is very nice . especially when you're facing a gauntlet of enemies. Controlling your characters is surprisingly good. SK is a decent game, but should have had more levels.
This is an interesting 3-D type of game. Initially I really didn't like the way you had to rotate and shoot the enemies, but the ability to lock your gun helped out a lot. Still, the perspective makes it frustrating at times, but it is part of dealing with a 3-D realm. The levels and enemies aren't all that colorful but it is overshadowed by the two-player simultaneous shooting test. It could have used a few more levels and enemies, however it is an above-average game with a unique environment.

It's good to be dead, really.
At least it is when you play Skeleton Krew on Genesis from U.S. Gold.
It's an entertaining one- or two-player, three-quarter-view Shooter with a neat thriller sound track.
You play as one of three futuristic soldiers in a run-and-gun mission into Monstrocity to find Moribund Kadaver DNA.
Skeleton Krew has no major surprises—good or bad.
While the control is difficult, Skeleton Krew is a fair representation of the genre.
- If you stay in one place too long, something invariably comes along and shoots you.
- Rib is the fastest character. Joint is the toughest
- Two players stand a much better chance of getting farther into the game.
