Fun to watch. I vaguely recall playing this game. Love the rats nest of wires and peripherals all around the gaming studio setup. So typical. lol.

Unbelievable but this game still beats that modernized clone version called Tiny Troopers.

Blast from the past!! We used to call this the best game on one disk...and back then we meant a High Density 1.4mb disk!

Ubik.. Damn.  I think for the Playstation 4 I may set up a new PSN account in remembrance of the guy, what an absolute machine :')

Elroy on the other hand... Bloody hell.  Haven't laughed that much in a fair while!! Haha. Legendary.

Brilliant video! :D

All those cables in that room would drive me crazy.

Danny still never resolved a voice change, has he...? Also in terms of baby fat looks like he has acquired some new 'depth', a late, stubborn claim to boyhood, is this?

I remember playing this when it was given to me on floppy disk xD I actually like Cannon Fodder 3 to, being more my gen , and still maintains the same style.

I hope this sparks a reboot or a digital download of the original for the home consoles...

@dannyodwyer A couple of suggestions. Marco's Magic football, Poltergeist, and finally - Comix Zone.  Partly because I never got further than the second level about 300 times, but also for it's quite intuitive gameplay mechanics and still awesome graphic design. The sound of guys inexplicably globuling into the ground and then saying something inaudible to human kind has stuck with me ever since. Also, I wished that when my dog died he'd make the shrieking sound of those flying, sharp, black tampons - instead of just shitting himself dry.

CBS Interactive should buy GOG then figure out how we can all play these brilliant classic games in browser format through GameSpot.

This game looks tremendous; it is a run-n-gun game that stands out; other game recommendations are: Gunstar Heroes [1993] and Legend of Kay [2005]
