THE CHOPPER’S WAITIN’…

Developed for Sega CD by Digital Pictures, Ground Zero: Texas duties the participant with rooting out an alien invasion presently infiltrating the sleepy border city of El Cadron. Blending the FMV shooter gameplay of the American Laser Games collection with the camera-switching, puzzle-solving shenanigans of Night Trap and Double Switch, Ground Zero: Texas is, in the end, a pretty clumsy and poorly-paced endeavor.

Still, no one is shopping for these re-releases particularly for his or her stellar gameplay and Ground Zero: Texas retains the campy, nostalgic worth anticipated from nearly all video games inside the FMV style.
