“Little kids with guns”

published 27/09/2001

Playable, great graphics, enjoyable and fun

none

The game is amazing, there are loads of cool cut scenes and they have got the gunshot effects and plasma rifle blasts down to a science. The first impressions are ace, there is a space shot at the start of the games first cut scene which is a bit blurry but never the less you are soon reassured...

*A review which is primarily based on the single-player experience 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...

“Jet Force Gemini”

published 07/12/2000

Best Graphics on the N64, surround sound music and...

hard to get into, but ultimately rewarding

Further 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...

“Jet Force Jemini”

published 05/08/2000

Shoot, Shoot, Shoot!!!!!!!

None the best shoot em up out

It's a shoot-'em-up, but one quite unlike the rest of the crowd, packing as it does a myriad of cinematic sequences, unusual elements, and a rare visual style. Initially control is limited to one of the Jet Force team, but as play progresses two new characters - female character Vela and Lupus...

“Maybe it deserves a chance”

published 29/11/2000

Multi-player and everything about it

The actual game

I will not deny the fact that the graphix and sound of this game are high on any chart but the one thing I didn't like was the actual one-player game itself. I found it annoying, the controls are awkward and the enemys look stupid. Then there is the light at the end of the tunnel - multi-player...

“Cool”

published 28/08/2000

Great

none

Another fabulous game from the exceptionally talented people at RARE. They made this game like they do all others, with the gamers tolerances and expectations in mind. Meaning, there is never a dull moment in the game, it has incredible visuals and a select few spots of moderate slow down. But...

Stunning visuals, stirring soundtrack, gameplay

occasional 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...

“Ooh Mama!”

published 27/06/2000

Fun, original, long, not very complex

Too hard in places

This is a brilliant game where you take the role of one of three of the JFG team who are the guardians of the galaxy. These brave warriors are trying to fend off the evil drones of Mizar from attacking the undeniably cute tribals. This game's graphics are sharp and the music is brilliant, the...

Good

Moderate one player mode

Poor soundtrack, poor multiplayer mode

Jet Force Gemini has it's good points and it's bad points. The single player mode is very interesting to start with, but being forced to watch large amounts of very boring videos that are of no real relavence to the game soon makes it less interesting. As some of the levels are very similar, it...

“Recommended”

published 19/09/2000

MUSIC + SOUND

Heh?

There is of course, one word, just the one, that will sum up this entire review, and save me from typing a lot. What is that word, you may ask. That word is the offical stamp of quality, and of excellence on and Nintendo system. They have produced some of the finest games ever, and still produce...

“Too tedious”

published 17/10/2000

Great game, graphics and sound

Can get very tedious and repetitive

Great game, great graphics but alot of problems. Sure the game is amazing, the graphics are outstanding but there are some irritating trends in the gameplay. You're constantly repeating levels, and doing activitys that you've done before. It can get very tedious and it is very difficult to keep...

“Another Rare classic”

published 04/07/2000

Excellent graphics

None

if it was not for Rare I believe the nintendo 64 would have become obsolete many years ago. Rare have given us classics such as Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64 and Jet Force Gemini. Jet Force Gemini was seen as the best game of 1999 on the nintendo 64 and I have to agree. It is highly...

A bit tough, rubbish story, boring weapons.

Set in space with the usuall silly story-line, this game is a brilliant meld of 3rd person adventure and 1st person blaster. What with Rare doing what they do best the adventure aspects of Jet Force Gemini are equal to if not better than those in Banjo-Kazooie. With tons to find and do this game...

“the game of the gods”

published 13/09/2000

Good graphics, huge game

repetative gameplay

Another mindblowing game by rare. This game exceeded all of my expectations and is quite literally, stunning. The game is based upon an invasion by an evil drone army, and you play any of the 3 availabe characters to defend an innocent world. The graphics are amazing, and the levels are blended...
