Alien 3

In space, no one can hear you scream. From your living room, however, the entire neighborhood can partake in your vented frustration at Alien 3. They will all know your pain at running out of ammunition or totally failing to locate that last damn prisoner. Arena’s licensed thriller is a chest-bursting, face-hugging orgy of challenge that will have you masochistically coming back for more. That’s what happens when good platforming action is combined with maddening difficulty. It’s a good thing then, that Genesis controllers are so inexpensive. We’re here for you though, and reading our full review will show you why Ripley really ended up bald: she pulled her hair out trying to pass the slaughterhouse level.

True Lies

The Governator was the consumate action stars, and before his mind turned to politics, he gave us such classics as the first two Terminator films, Predator, Commando, and a James Cameron vehicle called True Lies. Setting espionage against a backdrop of explosions and empty bullet casings, the movie was great popcorn fun, something that seems to easily lend itself to a run-‘n-gun game.
