Wargasm HHHHH

PC-CD ROM War! Huh! What is it good for? Well.... actually your PC, as Infogrames release an awesome war-strategy-game - quirkily named Wargasm. Don't be fooled, though, this is no ordinary strategy game! It's an instantly playable blood-fest which is so realistic you'll think that Hitler's dropped round for a cup of tea and a slice of carnage. You - the player - choose your side, your troops, and can even take control of just one unit. Not only that, but the graphics are simply amazing. Wargasm has it all - make sure you aren't left wanting.

PlayStation If you're bored with driving the same realistic old cars around the same boring old tracks, then you need S.C.A.R.S., by Acclaim. The aim of the game is to take control of a bizarre futuristic car, pick- up weapons as you drive and blow your opposition away in the quest for glory. The graphics are not exactly stunning, and the controls are a little dodgy, but the gameplay is very addictive, and the two-player option adds that little extra spice. Although S.C.A.R.S. is not the best driving game on the Playstation, it is one of the most action packed.
