Description

This is a must for many of the old school shooters on the Genesis, games such as Body Count , Corpse Killer (CD), Crime Patrol (CD), Lethal Enforcers, Lethal Enforcers (CD), Lethal Enforcers 2, Lethal Enforcers 2 (Sega CD) Mad Dog McCree(CD), Mad Dog McCree II: The Lost Gold (Sega CD), Snatcher (CD),Terminator 2: The Arcade Game and Who Shot Johnny Rock (Sega CD).

With a little bit of searching it's possible to pick up most of these games fairly cheap, and while most games are similar in gameplay, they each have their own individual story. My personal favorites were Lethal Enforcers 2 and Corpse Killer.

Before starting any light gun game, you should calibrate it to your Justifier and TV. For best results, I recommend using a flat-screen tube TV. These guns do not work with rear projection TV's and the old curved screens provide for poor acuracy. The calibrating procedure only takes a matter of seconds and will surely help your aim. From there you will choose your game mode of single player, story mode, two player, etc. From there you will be slinging bullets as fast as you can twitch your fingers.

The only bad thing I can really say is light gun shooter games do seem repetitive, since you are mainly just spraying bullets no matter what game it is. But quite often, squeezing off a few hundred rounds into some zombies or drug lords is just what we need to relax with friends.
