Lethal Enforcers (Mega CD / Sega CD review)

Developer: Konami
Publisher: Konami
Released: 1993

Lethal Enforcers is a light-gun game that was also released on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive in 1993.

+ Hit detection of the Justifier light-gun is ultra precise and enemies give you a fair amount of time to spot them before they fire.

+ Obtaining different weapons has a neat risk-reward element as you try to mow down enemies simultaneously.

+ Voice samples have been cleaned up and the CD music provides an adrenaline-fuelled soundtrack for the gritty locales.

- Gameplay is harsh, as accidentally killing even one civilian means mission failure and having to restart the entire stage again.

- Mission 3's yacht scene overstay its welcome and keeps you contained in the same area for what seems like an eternity.

- Later bosses are complete bullet-sponges and trying to defeat them with single bullets is very fatiguing on the trigger finger.

- Visuals haven't been spruced up to any noticeable degree over the Genesis version, and the grainy digitised sprites remain.
