Burning Rangers (Sega Saturn review)

Developer: Sonic Team
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1998

Burning Rangers is an action game that was produced by Sonic co-creator Yuji Naka.

+ The graphics are terrific with great lighting effects and texture detail that shows the console can do impressive 3D.

+ The lack of in-game music immerses you into the world and focuses on audio cues to determine navigation / danger.

+ Completed mission summary keeps you motivated to try again, as it shows how many people you failed to locate and rescue.

+ The unlockable random generator mode that mixes up the order of the corridors is great for repeated play-throughs.

- The gameplay is extremely repetitive and nothing substantially new is added once you've completed the first mission.

- The camera is awful (frequently swinging itself around in wild fashion) and the navigation system is often useless.

- Bosses are clumsy and disorientating due to there being no camera lock-on for these rare times you are engaging in combat.
