Lethal Enforcers

Lethal Enforcers

Konami’s Lethal Enforcers is a fan favorite, and one of the best reasons to own a light gun. The Genesis version retains most of the charm that made the arcade original so much fun, despite suffering the downgrade that usually happens during the porting process. It’s just as tough as the coin-op too, but thankfully no quarters are needed to play. Read our full review for all the details and ask yourself, do you feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

Peripherals have a history of being ignored by the majority of a console’s user base, and there’s a good reason for that. See, most of them have dreadfully few reasons to warrant their purchase, and nowhere was this more apparent than with the 16-bit generation of light guns. In only a few years, we went from the greatness that was Duck Hunt and Rescue Mission to the total mediocrity that was the Menacer 6-Game Cartridge. Seriously folks, it takes longer to assemble the darn thing than it does to play through this dull assortment of mini games, and you’ll quickly find yourself reaching for Terminator 2: The Arcade Game.
