Mad Dog McCree (Sega CD review)

Developer: American Laser Games
Publisher: American Laser Games
Released: 1993

Mad Dog McCree is a light-gun game that was originally released in the Arcade in 1991.

+ Locales, stunts, acting and set-pieces are all fantastic, and create an immersive backdrop for your gun-slinging adventures.

+ Unlike other Sega CD light-gun games like Who Shot Johnny Rock? (1994), there's a grace period before enemies shoot.

+ Affords you unlimited continues and fair checkpoints, and there's a nice amount of freedom in terms of choosing stage order.

- FMV quality is perhaps the worst on the system and it's challenging to see the pixelated enemies lurking in the background.

- Poor video quality means you can't decipher between a civilian and bad guy, hence, memorisation becomes a key strategy.

- Mine level tasks you with locating and shooting objects, yet the awful FMV makes it impossible to detect where they are.

- One-on-one quick-draw events are initially fun, but eventually slow your progress and purely serve to pad out the gameplay.
