Hunt for Red October
Hunt for Red October game came 1 year after the release of the movie titled the same which released in 1990. The story was originally taken from the 1984 best-seller Novel by Tom Clancy. Basically this game is a sea battle game. The mission is to prevent a deadly war between 2 countries. This is yet another American patriotic game where the villain country (usually Germany or Russia) are planning something catastrophic to disturb world peace, & as usual the American heroes will not let it happen. First it came for NES & Later for Super NES & Gameboy. The plus on the SNES version was the Super Scope accessory to play bonus stages in which player get to control the submarine in first person view, where the player has to kill a number of enemies and projectiles. Here the player has to play the role of a CIA officer Jack Ryan.This title is dedicated to the Enemy country’s Submarine. It’s a top secret Nuclear Project which is heading west to sabotage USA.
The game has 5 different sequeneces like jumping from helicopter, navigating some different sized submarines in channels & at the same time avoiding the obstacles. The Hunt for Red October controls seems hard as compared to the titles released in that era.Too much details on the screen while choosing targets & selecting weapons kinda puzzules player in a NES Game.The music could have been much better. This could be the reasons the game didn’t get any hype.
