This is Zero Tolerance for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Game System.
FPS Games are the hottest out right now in video games, seems like every new big game is now a FPS game we are even starting to see old Gems get new life Such as Duke Nukem and ID's Doom 4 in the works FPS games are hard to avoid this Gen. But back in the 16Bit Home Console Days of the Early 1990's You didnt see or hear alot about FPS games on Home Systems. At the Time we had the First Major FPS Game on the GB the Awful yet fun "Face Ball" But really the FPS Market (FPS= First Person Shooter) was for the Most Part a PC thing.
Face Ball on the Nintendo Super System AKA SUPER NINTENDO AKA SNES
In 1994 Genesis Owners Were lucky enough to get Technopop's Zero Tolerance game but not alot of people rushed out to get it and didnt see the sales publish accolade was hoping (Bubsy, Double Dragon, Ballz) and the game became some what of a Hidden Gem over time or lesser known game. Research from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia states: Due to the limitations of the hardware, the game's 3D environment was restricted to a fraction of the screen, the rest of the screen functioned as the player's HUD, a map of the surrounding area, and the player character's ID card. On the other hand, it featured interesting visual effects for its time which were considered a rival to Doom; effects like animated wall textures, blood running down walls, blood that would fly through the air, and rudimentary sloped floors. The 3D environment also ran much more smoothly then any first person Game at the time
This Game Was also The first and Only that I know of Game to Let you Play Multi Player Via a System Link Cable Very Very Rare today. In 1994 the only was to get a cable was by mail in you would get the slip inside the game that you could mail away for a Free Cable the Publisher ever paid for it to be mailed to your house but no one really did that and it makes them rare today. If you look at this pic above its super easy to make one these days from two controllers and even has helpful guides online at many sites. If you get stuck making you own you are always able to leave comments here and we will help you out.
This item is the Link Cable and is Oober Rare
This Game has a plot some what the story is based in the future and is about a team that colonised the Solar System. You are under attack by an unknown yet lethal aggressor of apparently extraterrestrial nature, the Planet Defense Corps call in Zero Tolerance, an elite strike squad of five speciality-trained commandos This squad also doubles as your "life" and Each Member has skills to help make it through the massive 40 stage game. Im not going to go into this much more because I dont want to spoil it for the people who want to pick this up. At the End of this review I would say this is a great game and IMO its the Best FPS game on the Genesis and is worth picking up for the price 1.00-7.00 USD at that price its a great deal. The game play does have some trouble this is a game from 1994 and it hasnt aged the best, if you are used to the FPS controls of today and games like the first Doom just piss you off I would stay away from this one for the rest of us retro gamers I would give this a 4/5 a Must Own for Any FPS/Sega Genesis fan.
