Gameplay Vault: Skeleton Warriors

I found this title earlier in the week at a used game store for two bucks. Needless to say, my hopes weren’t high. The game came out sometime around the launch of the original Playstation in 1996 (about a year after initial release), and for an early title it’s not horrible. Just watch and see for yourself.

 

 


 

Actually the game’s CGI cinema scenes, though there are only a few, aren’t too bad. There’s a distinct lack of much sound, but they’re aren’t bad. Watch:

See? Not so bad. The intro is nearly just as long. Maybe it’s just because I think skeletons are neat, I don’t know.

Having never played the game (or heard of the game, for that matter) before, I didn’t know what to expect from the gameplay. But after completing the game I think it can be summed up in just one word…
EXPLOSIONS!!

And that’s Skeleton Warriors for the PS1. I saw that there’s also a Sega Saturn version as well, but seeing as I don’t have a Saturn (yet) I won’t be looking at it anytime soon.

Mini-Review: If you find it for $2 like I did, you should get it. For that price you really can’t go wrong.

Laters,

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
