Next generation developers are offering quite a few "next generation" titles-- flashy games that show off the capabilities of the system--and that's Just great, but what happens when the casual gamer wants to get a little retro flavor going on with his amped-up new system? What if you're looking for .a brainless shoot-*em-up to spend some time with? If you're looking for a game with the feel of old Atari games like Xevious, but want the look and sound that only today's machines can provide, feast your eyes upon Galactic Attack, Acclaim's new shooter for the Sega Saturn.

Galactic Attack--notice the nice plain retro sounding name that brings to mind 1982 vintage Atari games like Vanguard, and wearing your custom Vans to the local arcade--is a shooter, plain and simple, but its a shooter that could only have been realized on a 32-bit machine, it features beautiful 3-D backgrounds, loads of snazzy colors to dazzle the eye, breakneck speed in either one or two player modes, and a host of power-ups and super power-ups, as well as big, burly weapons, including nifty little lock-on lasers and tracking missiles. My brain is twitching and my thumbs are blistering just thinking about it.
