Electronic Arts made serious waves among 3DO owners last year with the release of Shockwave 20/9.The subject matter was'nt so original but its execution was nearly flawless. PSX owners will now be able to play Shockwave and its first sequel, Operation Jumpgate.
The original Shockwave puts you into the combat boots of Wildcard, the rookie in a squad of hard-nosed space pilots. Earth has been attacked by a massive alien armada, and you and your mates are deployed from an orbiting battle cruiser and charged with engaging the enemy in a variety of locations, beginning with a dogfight among the pyramids of Egypt. Shockwave is set up like a linear flight simulation. You view the action from a comfy seat in the cockpit and you're able to pilot your ship with pretty much total freedom within the geographical boundaries of an engagement.
Operation Jumpgate takes place seven years after the first Shockwave.The alien menace has been discovered hiding in our solar system and this time you must engage the scum on the distant moons of Mars.
