Do you have the guts to take on the sewers and blow away the rati-gators and other nasties lurking below a major corporation? If your answer is yes, then Sewer Shark is your game! As one of the first Genesis CD-ROM releases, Sewer Shark takes you on a high-speed trip through the underground works of a city's sewer system! It's a messy job, but someone has to do it! Piloting your Hole Hog sewercraft, you and your veteran backseat co-pilot, Ghost, must maneuver through twisting tunnels! Another co-pilot, the mechanical Catfish, speeds ahead of you, scouting targets! The objective is simple: blow away the rodents and follow the directions Catfish gives you. If you fail to follow them to the letter, you'll hit a dead end! Crash and burn! Watch the arrows at the top of the console -they show you which route to take. Also watch your Energy Level which displays available ammunition. If you run out, you get to do some quick maneuvering while prime targets pass you by!
So, do you think you have what it takes to face this disgusting menace? Then listen to your co-pilot and "pretend it's just a game!"

Based on an upcoming movie, Sewer Shark is a CD-ROM shooter which takes you through the sewers of a futuristic city. Fly through claustrophobic tunnels in search of ratigators and other sewer vermin while using your guns to eradicate them. You will gain insight into your mission from Catfish; a probe which travels ahead of you relaying vital information on your journey.
Sewer Shark, although also plagued by a color palette problem, works much better than any of the other games using video. The action is pretty straightforward: guide a cross hair around the screen to take out the animated bad guys. The backgrounds and storyline are all delivered courtesy of the full motion video. Repetitive but good.
Since the Genesis can only display 64 colors, any video footage will obviously look grainy on the Sega CD. However, colors aside, Sony has taken actual footage and made a spectacular olavino game. The action literally flies by and really keeps a player on his toes. Very challenging and must be seen!
At first glance this disc looks like the coolest thing since shoes that pump. After you get over the cool effect of having a full motion video backdrop of high speed tunnel racing, the game is rather boring. Move a cursor around the screen and blast little mushy things. Joy! Cool special effects do not make a great game.
Whoopie! Another full motion video CD game with no plot of real game play. The color pallet needs major work, and what happened to the action? Guiding a 'crosshair in a repetitive maze in order to blast rodents and bats is not my idea of hot shooter action! My best reaction can be summed up as "wait 'til next year.
