Cannon Fodder - Mega Drive

This is such a good idea for a game, we still can't believe it!

You control a little squad of soldiers through an increasingly difficult series of battles. How do you do that?

You point to where you want to move your men and click a button. You point to where you want to shoot or throw a grenade and click a button.

It's as simple as a really stupid man.

Though Canon Fodder has coped with its move to console well, we still have a major reservation regarding the game.

There are weeks of gameplay in there, but we somehow feel that boredom will set in after a few days. The relatively poor sales of CF2 tell their own tale.

The deranged amongst you will enjoy repeatedly shooting wounded soldiers, and the introduction of vehicles later in the game helps, but a bit more depth wouldn't have gome amiss.
