Mad Dog McCree is the first live-action laserdisc video game
released in 1990. As a first attempt to create an arcade shooter, it sure was an awful start. You might be saying that I should take it that it's the first of it's kind, let it pass. NO! I won't do that! I treat all game equally and won't give any game special treatment. This game is awful and I feel sorry for any gamer who played the game. It's dangerously boring, the fun factor is extremely low and there is not replay value
. Hell, there is no point of progressing in the game. I should give the game credit for its rather great video quality
, while other games that attempted to use FMV resulted in bad quality videos. Sadly, that's the only good thing I have to say about this game. The story is just that you're a stranger and you need to take down a bandit known as McCree
. The gameplay is typical like in many arcade shooters
, such as Virtua Cop
or House of the Dead
. But it's not fun at all. There are no sound effect of your gun and the death acts seem lame. Overall, Mad Dog McCree is the first game to start off the genre, it didn't do such a great job. Luckily for us that Sega has brought other great such games to save the genre.
