Sunday Roundup: 6/3/12

It’s been a slow month with new games, but assuredly as the sun rises they keep trickling into my collection. This week sees just one new title, but it packs two different games. And games are “arcade classics.” Or so the box claims.




Lethal Enforcers 1 & 2
Release Date: November 17th, 1997
Purchased at: Disc Replay (Lafayette, IN – $4)

The Lethal Enforcers series is a series of light gun games that were first made popular in the arcades during the early 90’s. I remember seeing the machines when I was younger and, like most light gun games, thinking they were incredibly cool. I can’t really recall anything about the game besides the cardboard cutout enemies and more realistic feel than games like Point Blank or Time Crisis. Fun fact: The home console version seen here uses the special light gun from Konami known as the “Justifier.” This light gun is special to Konami’s light gun games and is not compatible with other light gun games like the previously mentioned Point Blank or Time Crisis games. Interestingly, the more recognizable Gun Con light gun (from Namco) CAN be used with some of these Konami light gun titles.



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.
