Review: War Final Assault by Atari Games

Shaggy February 10, 2009 3

I know that I posted a review not that long ago (of another Atari title, Asteroids Deluxe) but I haven’t had a lot of time to spend on researching news but I did have time to make a video of the latest game that I picked up, one of my favorites War: Final Assault. I’ve heard that this game didn’t do terribly well back in the day which sort of eludes me because I’ve always loved it and when I’ve seen them linked I see them get quite a bit of play. Now I have a soft spot for it probably because when it comes to PC gaming, I enjoy first-person shooters and so having an arcade FPS is a treat I suppose. I know that there is another FPS out there made just for arcades by Sega called Outriggers but sadly I have never had the pleasure of playing that one because I have never even seen one at the arcade (yes I know I could get it for the DreamCast but thenI miss the arcade experience 🙂 ) here. Also The Grid might count but I’ve only seen that played in 3rd person. Either way, here is a video below of War I apologize if it’s hard to hear what I say as I was standing too far from the mic but I think that you’ll get the idea in case you haven’t seen this game before. Also there is an HD version of it here.

    I used to play this constantly when it was at my local arcade! It was the first game (besides NFL Blitz) that I ever saw with a bill-acceptor on the coinbox, and I’m sad to say that i used it. Frequently.

    I remember when Atari was beta testing this game at the Milapitas Golfland int he bay area. Atari beta tested a lot of their arcade games there and this was a very much played game throughout the beta and when it went gold. lots of fun and always better with a full 4 people playing through linked machines.
