E-SWAT - City Under Siege
E-Swat casts you in the role of a Cyber-Cop loaded with armor, machine guns and other high-tech hardware! While the Master System version isn't as impressive visually, it still plays decently as a conventional side-scrolling action contest.

E-Swat is based on the Sega arcade game where you are a member ot a futuristic special force of law enforcement police. With a special suit for protection and sophisticated weapons to match you must take on the criminals of the future. This 8 bit Master System conversion, while not as detailed as the arcade version, still gives users the flavor of the game.
I didn't find E-Swat exciting at all. The colors are bland and washed out, the action is slow and repetitive, and the game itself bears no resemblance to the arcade original in any way at all. Standard side-scrolling action fare with a coin-op name.
A good example of the new generation of Master System 2 games. The spark has gone out of the carts and Sega seems content in bringing out bland generic versions of great arcade games. Could have been much better. Only average.
E-Swat, although it's not too much like the arcade, is a decent Master System shooter, with adequate graphics and challenging game play. Not outstanding, but a nice walk through a terrible neighborhood.
E-SPLAT should have been the real name of the Master System version of this great coin-op. Why do so many games 'disguise' themselves as arcade games when...someone should check 'em at the door for their proper I.D.!
