Line of Fire (Sega Master System review)

Developer: Sega CS, Sanritsu
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1992

Line of Fire is a vertically-scrolling action game that has an option to use the Sega 3-D Glasses.

+ 3D effect is great and while there is some ghosting the scenic scale and perspective of tall buildings is impressive.

+ Multiple vehicle types to operate that show off the stereoscopic effect, particularly when bombing tanks from your helicopter.

+ Being able to guide your missiles is tough at first, but once you get the hang of it it's a satisfying weapon to use.

+ Lots of variety in the level design and having to watch for environmental hazards as well as enemies keeps you engaged.

- However, once you've seen the first few seconds of each stage nothing else is added to enhance the intensity of combat.

- Can only travel up to around a third of the screen which causes issues when trying to dodge incoming projectiles.

- Only one music track that plays throughout the entire game and while it's catchy it does grow tiresome.
