Jet Force Gemini (N64) - Nintendo 64

No matter how you slice it, Jet Force Gemini is one tough game. But the frustration of ... more

playing this epic is tempered by the sheer
magnitude and quality found within. Be forewarned,
this run-and-gun action-fest is not for everyone.
In fact, novices may be better off letting
seasoned gamers fight over this morsel. Jet Force
Gemini includes three complete characters, more
than 15 unique weapons, smart artificial
intelligence (AI), and the rescue of Ewok-like
creatures from giant space insects. For those who
don't have an extra 30 to 60 hours to burn, JFG
feels like the most bloated, uncut Hollywood epic
ever. Yes, the game is deep, but not good enough
to wade through enormous hours of gameplay. Buying
JFG is a commitment, one that will have die-hards
playing gleefully for many months, and the rest of
us wincing each time we need to restart a level
after being annihilated. --Jeff YoungPros:An
amazing array of gameplay styles, weapons and
bosses Colourful graphics Good value
Cons:Excruciatingly hard and excessively long
Choppy animation Difficult control scheme

Mizar Wars: Return Of Jet Force Gemini

AdvantagesChallenging, plenty to explore and shoot

DisadvantagesFrame-rate not steady, silly story, cannot skip ship sequences

"...of the third-person action-adventure game, Jet Force Gemini.* Jet Force Gemini sees you taking on the evil tyrant of Mizar in a battle across the universe, and although the story, aimed at children (above the age of eleven - thanks ELSPA), can seem silly in places, the plot twists are simply stupid: [SPOILERS] When an asteroid is set on a collision course with Earth, an ancient starship is needed as the Jet Force ships won't be able to get there ..."

Little kids with guns

AdvantagesPlayable, great graphics, enjoyable and fun

Disadvantagesnone

"...Rare Master Piece that is Jet Force Gemini. There are bits in every game that many of us would like to improve and JFG is no exception, the character jumps using the C-up button, it seems fairly logical as the A and B buttons are used to switch the weapons. But it can be annoying as the N64 pad isn’t very easy to navigate, especially for some young gamers. The main storyline in the game is that the Tribals, little fluffy Teddy bear types ..."

Jet Force Gemini

AdvantagesBest Graphics on the N64, surround sound music and SFX, excellent gameplay

Disadvantageshard to get into, but ultimately rewarding

"...to the previous comments on Jet Force Gemini, the game, like any has good points and bad points. While JFG may not be as instantly accessible as other comparable offerings, I found it a hugely enjoyable game to play. For one, the graphics are simply the best I've seen on the N64. Perhaps JFG's imagery doesn't quite come on par with some of the latest offerings on the Dreamcast and PS2, but for a 64-bit console, these graphics as good as it gets. ..." Read review

Jet Force Jemini

AdvantagesShoot, Shoot, Shoot!!!!!!!

DisadvantagesNone the best shoot em up out

"...limited to one of the Jet Force team, but as play progresses two new characters - female character Vela and Lupus the robotic dog - become available, opening up new areas of the maps and introducing new gameplay elements with their special abilities. Players will need to make the most of these powers, as the screen piles up with hordes of enemies at every turn, making for the most trigger happy N64 game around, while a variety of subgames offer the ..."

One of the best N64 games so far

AdvantagesStunning visuals, stirring soundtrack, gameplay

Disadvantagesoccasional slowdown

"This is what it's all about - a game that incorporates a sense of fun, action, danger, splendid visuals, a stirring soundtrack - it above all reeks of originality. This is a game that does not benefit/suffer from a legacy or is part of a franchise. Publisher Rare have created a truly ORIGINAL game:A combination of action adventure, puzzle solving and blast 'em up JFG is a huge game set over many worlds that gives it that epic feel that old skool ..."
