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.

Seven years after the victory over the invading alien forces, the Earth began to rebuild itself from the near total destruction. A new UN special forces division has been established to ensure that the tragic event does not happen again. As an early warning, probes have been sent throughout the solar system to give Earthlings a fighting chance in case the aliens ever reappear. But to their surprise, the invaders were already there.
This add-on disc to the popular Shockwave Assault: Invasion Earth gives players more missions and opportunities to blast invading alien scum on a variety of barren planets. The playing environment remains the same as the original, but the aliens, cinemas and plot have advanced to the next phase of assault. Many of the enemies seem to have gained a speed bonus in the second wave of the attack. They are harder to hit and seemingly run circles around your hapless ship. Enemies with this type of speed make you long for a faster-maneuvering craft that is better equipped to keep up with the opposition. Operation Jumpgate is a prime add-on game for players seeking more fun after the first invasion.
