Nothing much to say, other than it's campy fun on a rainy day. (rhyme unintended)

User Rating: 5.9 | Night Trap SCD
Anyone who's reading this review more than likely knows about the huge amount of controversy this game inspired on its release. To quote Seanbaby of EGM, "When media watchdogs list video games that corrupt our youth, they always name Night Trap as one of Satan's top recruitment devices." Only difference is, I'm giving a slightly positive review whereas Seanbaby ripped into the game. Anyway, to get on...

Because of the obvious technical limitations of 16-bit graphics, you can only have 256 colors onscreen at any time. So that means that even though this is an FMV game (and there are plenty of others for the Sega CD), the videos look very pixellated and grainy. Fortunately, because it's Sega CD, the sound is pretty good. If you're looking for better graphics, then I suggest hunting down a copy of the 32x version on eBay. It'll take some work, but I believe it's worth it.

However, if you're looking for an intelligent FMV game, then get out of here right now. This isn't what you're looking for.

P.S. In case you're wondering, the controversy surrounding this game appears to have been about nothing, seeing as there really isn't that much violence in the game.
