Game Review

Total Recall is the adaptation of the science-fiction movie directed by Paul Verhoeven, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The game was released in 1990, the same year of the film, and Ocean published it.

Active Minds developed two versions, one for 8-bit platforms and another for Atari ST and Amiga (the one you will find here). Unfortunately, like many other movie conversions, the quality of this title is not exceptional. It also seems that part of the team left during the production, and Ocean had to complete the game with other developers. Not good.

There are positive aspects in this title, such as the nice graphics and the exceptional music composed by legendary musician David Whittaker. But the gameplay is really average. The hero will have to fight hordes of enemies with his gun or punch in the platformer-shooter levels. The difficulty level is quite high. Then, there are 2D racing levels, with a top-down view. This could have been a nice level for the Commodore 64 version, but not for an Amiga. It also seems that the 16-bit version was first developed for ST and then ported to Amiga, which is one of the reasons why the game is not so fast.

In short, if you are a fan of the movie or a fan of Arnold, go ahead and play. If not... wait a minute, who is not a fan of the old good Schwarzy? Impossible! Go and play!
