Wait, so...they made a markedly similar game for Sega CD? I played this on Sega Saturn, and it's weird, but...I found the game strangely mysterious. Perhaps it was impressionable age (I was roughly 9-10 years old), but the tinny, hollow voiceovers creeped me out, and the disturbing laughing by a particular girl set me over the edge. I never did beat the game, but I have vivid memories of playing it.

Also, if you've played a fair amount of Sega Saturn, I'm trying to figure out the name of this other game I played all the time. It was about this, like, source marine, and he was red in color. You controlled him as he went around shooting guns at things. It had a mechanic which entailed a stopping and pivoting shooting style, and it was semi top down point of view. Ring any bells? For the LIFE of me, I can't find out what that game was, but I remember the images like it was yesterday.

So talking about that game again, I did some research and reviewed a list of American Saturn games. Turns out the game was Crusader: No Remorse. Wow, memory lane for sure watching Youtube videos of that game.

Yeah, I had a review up for the first game prior to this review. I provided a link in the first paragraph (predecessor), if you wanna see that one, I guess.

Crusader is one of the games I haven't tried out yet for the Saturn. Never got around to it. I was going to purchase the game and its sequel on gog.com, but never got around to that, as well.

I adored Crusader: No Remorse back in the day. I managed to nab a super cheap copy on release as the shop I worked for at the time over-ordered like mad, so got it below cost then played it like crazy. Oddly, what I remember the most is the internal e-mail system you could browse in between missions and catch up with the base's gossip, and there being this huge long-running argument about a joke someone made about a butcher shop chicken and how it made no sense.

Always been scared to offer a reply to keep nostalgia intact.


For us. For them. For you.

Yeah, the game seemed so ahead of its time. Glad someone else besides me has memories of it. :D
