Body Harvest - N64|
This game is a cunt! I love it but its a cunt. Body harvest will always be one of my favorite games of all time. But my god, it can be brutal sometimes.
You see, its a free roaming game from the guys who went on to make GTA3, so there's freedom and vehicles galore. Each of the various levels are vast, and the game takes an age to complete.
The problem is, im not sure the game was ever finished. Random glitches plague your progress, and in a game where save points are few and far between, it can result in you flinging your n64 pad against the wall.
You'll be driving along after a 2 hour session, heading for the save point, and then your car gets snagged on an invisible rock on the road. Now your cars fucked, so you jump out, landing halfway down the cliff to your left. Now what? You try in vain to make your way back up the cliff, but no, you fall to your watery death. This is Body harvest.
But there's so much to love. The music is great, and used sparingly to really create an atmosphere of isolaton. The giant space insects are towering foes that scream as you tear them up with your ww2 tank.
I do love this game, and feel cheated that we won't ever see a sequel or a remake. It didn't sell well at all. I'd love to see a eurogamer retrospective of this forgotten gem.
