Lethal Enforcers II: Gun Fighters (Sega Mega Drive / Genesis review)

Developer: Konami
Publisher: Konami
Released: 1994

Lethal Enforcers II: Gun Fighters is a light-gun game and the prequel to the original Lethal Enforcers (1993, Sega Mega Drive).

+ Light-gun accuracy is phenomenal and handily the calibration screen can be pulled up at any time by pressing Start.

+ Unlike the original game, accidentally shooting a civilian depletes your life bar rather than resulting in mission failure.

+ Interesting locales to battle in and the excellent two-player mode allows for a combination of light-guns and controllers.

+ Includes some fun mini-games to break things up, and the music does an excellent job of enhancing gameplay intensity.

- Enemy voice clips are overused to a ridiculous degree and hearing the same phrases repeated ad nauseum is tiresome.

- Bosses are major bullet sponges and having to continually pull the trigger for minutes at a time is exhausting on the hand.

- Final boss is nightmarish, as the difficulty ramps up dramatically and you're suddenly swarmed with enemies / projectiles.
