The solar system is under attack by aliens wearing special armored attack suits. Our only hope rests with two specially designed prototype fighting machines. Fight the aliens courageously with the special weapons that each robot possesses. The sound effects and animation are very realistic. There is also a great deal of skill involved in dispatching the aliens to the scrap heap!
Playing off of the hype that Street Fighter 2 has created, Black Hole uses the CD to provide some jammin' tunes and extra memory for great character animations. The action is one-on-one all the way, with special moves that are pretty cool. The game doesn't have an abundance of variety, but it's fun as a two-player game.
Bignet has don an admirable job in creating a fighting game that involves unusually large characters. With a good variety of moves this futuristic Street Fighter-type game is loaded with technique. Combo moves are important, as is a plan or strategy to be able to take on characters stronger than you. Fantastic music!
While this disc is an improvement on Heavy Nova, that really isn't saying too much. The graphics are a little better and the music is great. The cinemas are cool, but could of easily been done on cart. The game play is good, but seems unresponsive at times. Cool selection of robots and a variety of moves are high points.
The problem with 90% of the games that pop up in this category is that, let's face it. the character interaction is the equivalent of a big nasty. No offense, but without that, the best graphics, the best sounds, and the best ideas are for naught. This is here in Black Hole Assault's programming. As such this is only average.
