So far the Ikari Warrior Series has left a bad taste in my mouth with poor QA and programming, making the games glitchy, not well thought out, and frankly hard to play. I decided to finish of the trilogy of pain with Ikari Warriors 3: The Rescue. Much to my own disbelief this game is actually decent, decent being the optimal word. Rather then all the other Ikari warriors where you had a gun and grenades, now you just punch and kick. Apparently the enemy knows these rules to so they do the same, with the occasional knife and the rare gun. There are still some glitches that got in our way. In a two player game when player two died (me) I couldn?t get back into the game, at the continue screen after player 1 died it asked to continue, and when he hit continue he was the only one who continued. This required me to go online and figure out how to get back into the game. The trick is holding Up/Right and A and you will continue. Once you figure that out the game is more fun because either player can continue right away. Overall the game is really just mediocre and not worth the time or money.
