    Default Jungle Strike

    One of the most original and fun group of games to originate on the Genesis was Electronic Arts' Strike series. Three games were released in total, and the franchise eventually moved on to the next generation consoles. This week, we're taking a special look at the series, with reviews for both Jungle Strike and Urban Strike, as well as a special retrospective on the entire run of titles. Check out our review for Jungle Strike and see why you need to play these games!

    YEAH JUNGLE STRIKE! I loved this as a kid, and it holds up now.

    Does anyone remember the EGM issue where Shaq was a guest editor, and promptly mentions how much he loves this game? And why the hell has that stayed with me all these years?

    How timely! I just bought Jungle Strike (The Sequel to Desert Strike) today for $1.50 at a thrift shop complete and in mint condition! I have Desert Strike (The Prequel Jungle Strike and Urban Strike) as well, but probably won't bother Urban Strike (The Sequel to Jungle Strike and Desert Strike).

    Had a go on Jungle Strike for the first time the other day. It's really not my thing (I dare not call it boring after the review said I couldn't). I am also probably the only person who has never played Desert Strike.

    I loved this series (I own the three titles). It offers a really challenging game play.
    It’s fantastic to remember those games… and that intro music is awesome!
    Great review! Thanks.

    Urban
    Soviet

    Yep, just those 5. I never did try Nuclear Strike, heard it was disappointing.

    Oh snap! I never sent it to you? I'll have to do that then, as I picked up a box and manual for it when I went to Orlando in August. Now you'll get a complete copy!

    I enjoyed Nuclear Strike well enough, although it was tough as nails and confusing at times. Anyone played Soviet Strike?

    Soviet Strike on the Saturn is the shiznit with the Mission Stick. The Saturn version has more weapons than on the Playstation, and it runs pretty solid.

    I want a mission stick. I can see it working well with Sega Ages: After Burner 2.
    The smell of scorched oil hangs in the air as a premonition of danger, while the engine gloriously shouts its war cry...

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.
