Even though we have seen many great games come and go over the years, it's always a blast to take a walk down memory lane and fire up one of the original, hall-of-fame masterpieces. In their time, they were state of the art; now we look at these games as pieces of the past. Atari has taken one of their originals, Missile Command, and rereleased it with a few added bonuses that will keep not only the veteran gamers happy but future players as well. In Missile Command 3D, there are three modes to test your skill: Original, 3-D and Virtual. The original is pretty self-explanatory: two-dimensional gameplay with one objective: Protect your bases from an onslaught of enemy attacks. The 3-D Mode plays very much like the original, but has been upgraded graphically to give the player the feel of being in control of the action from a command center placed a safe distance away from the destruction. The last mode of play is the Virtual Mode. Unlike the first two modes, here you also have a setback view, but the "virtual" comes into play when you have to switch between the bases. The strategy comes in when you realize the fate of the world is in your hands; are you up for the challenge?

Missile Command--an oldie but a goodie. Missile Command 3D is part a series of updated Atari classics released for the Jaguar, including It I Defender 2000, Breakout 2000, and Tempest 2000. Tempest 2000 (the PC version is due out early next year, and yes, Atari is now publishing for the PC) is probably one of the best games available for the Jaguar; the rest of the classic collection looks just as promising, especially for fans of those original versions.
The Missile Command 3D cartridge is comprised of three games: Original Missile Command, 3D Missile Command, and Virtual Missile Command. 3D Missile Command basically plays like the original game, but, of course, in 3-D.The explosions in 3D Missile Command are impressive; it's good to see something other than those shattering polygon explosions one sees in games like Cyber Morph. But I thought the lens flare effect looked a little contrived. 3-D worlds include undersea, clouds and space station colonies, a far cry from the original backgrounds in the arcade version.
Virtual Missile Command departs from both Original Missile Command and 3D Missile Command in gameplay.The goal is the same: protect your colonies from aliens. But this time you shoot directly at the missiles in order to deter them, instead of strategically causing explosions that block their paths. It's more direct Not especially innovative, but Missile Command 3D can provide Jaguar owners with ample entertainment.
