Event based action/shooter game
Lost Patrol will carry you through a host of WWII like missions, where you'll mostly be tasked with shooting enemies or a few other types of recon/targeting options. However, while you'd expect an action game to offer you the chance to actually move 2D like or 3D like through an environment, in this one you'll get a console based mission setting/advancing construct, which will throw you in different shooting arenas depending on luck and other factors or your actual choices. The game thus plays like an arcader, like a shooting range arcader, and, thus, will become a bit too repetitive, a bit too soon. Graphically, the game is ok, though the limited color scheme and the digitized backgrounds will look a bit off-putting to somebody that is used with modern games. Thus, I can only recommend this game to those that loved shooting arcade games or on-rail shooters, where you don't really have too much freedom of movement, but can shoot as many enemies as you can. Soon enough, however, boredom will kick in, as the keyboard controls are no match to a stand-alone arcade console with dedicated gun controllers.
