DFG Exclusive Review Summary

  • The vivid graphics (i.e. the explosion of your missiles on enemy vehicles) and the audio effects, such as the whine of jets or the screams from burning enemy soldiers, are rather well done and add to the atmosphere
  • You can use a variety of weapons, such as an M60 machine gun, twin barrel 30 caliber anti-aircraft gun, 75mm anti-tank cannon, a gattling gun, and a .45 handgun.
  • The interface is very simple and easy to pick up within a couple minutes of play
Cons
  • While there are quite a few levels, around 108, they are for the most part all the same and the action gets repetitive quickly
  • There isn't really any chance for victory since the game will just continually throw more enemy units at you with each successive wave, so your only goal is perhaps to do better than you did the game before and reach a later level*
  • For the price adds only a couple new features to the gameplay found in previous titles in the series and the gameplay is pretty much exactly the same

Beach Head 2002 Review

- Review by Alex

Beach Head 2002 is an arcade-style shooter where you use a variety of weapons to repel waves of enemy units as they attempt to destroy your lone bunker. You'll have a pretty awesome arsenal at your fingertips, such as an M60 machine gun, 75mm anti-tank gun, a collection of missiles, and you can even call in air strikes once you reach later levels, and with the hoards of enemy units that will come at you, you'll everything you can throw at them if you have any hope of surviving.

Easy Controls, Basic Gameplay

The controls are very simple to use since you are pretty much stuck in a stationary turret and only aim with the mouse or switch weapons with the keyboard. This simple and casual game style makes this title accessible to pretty much anyone and allows you to get into the game within only a couple minutes of gameplay. Also, the graphics and audio are rather well done in some cases with the explosions from missiles, dust clouds from bombs, and the shaking of your bunker under heavy fire adding to tense atmosphere.

Could Get Old Quickly

Sadly though, the action tends to lose its luster after only a couple of levels as you realize that most of the levels are pretty much exactly the same. There are a few levels where things get a little more interesting, such as night missions where you have to use flares to light up the landscape and see the enemy forces or when the enemy wave consists of only fighter jets and you'll have to shoot supply boxes in order to find enough missiles to take them down.

Lacks Variety

Yet, even with these few exceptions you'll most likely just be facing the same type of tanks, soldiers, helicopters, and jets on every mission with the only difference being the numbers of each type which are thrown at you. Since you are in the same bunker the terrain also doesn't change at all in the levels so you can get a bit of an idea where the enemy spawn points tend to be and prepare accordingly.

Conclusion - Fine As a Diversion, Limited Long Term Enjoyment

Overall Beach Head 2002 adds in a few new features to this game series and presents a good looking if not terribly addicting gaming experience. There are probably a few niche gamers which will find this game a lot of fun, but most will probably lose interest after playing it a few times.

If you are looking for some simple arcade-style shooting then Beach Head 2002 a great game to try out but there isn't a whole lot of re-playability to be found.

When you first play Beach Head 2000 and you find out it started life out as an arcade game it makes a whole lot of sense. This is a game that is not made to make you think, it is a game that was made with making people keep pimping in quarters to an arcade machine. That has been the arcade formula for years so it is hard to be down on the game for that. However, did they make enough changes to make the home conversion worth your time?

Protecting The Beach!

The goal of the game is pretty simple. You are in a bunker and you are the last line of defense against invading forces on the beach. It is a very simple premise and one that is perfect for an arcade game. The premise is so solid that the sequel is the exact same thing! There is no ending or anything like that or any kind of story, you are a one-man army and that is that.

Standing And Shooting

The arcade machine of Beach Head 2000 uses a trackball. Here you use your mouse and it works very well in simulating a trackball so I give them credit for that. The game has you stuck in one spot and while you can look around you cannot actually move. You move the mouse around the screen and shoot soldiers, tanks, choppers, and anything else that is coming your way. It starts off rather slow, but it eventually ramps up and you will die at some point.

Shooting down enemies is very satisfying. The game on each stage has you needing to survive so many waves of enemies. You just keep on going until you eventually die. It is all about getting as far as you can and getting the highest score possible. As an old school arcade fan, I kind of dig this. However, for this home version I feel that they could have added an actual campaign or at the very least some kind of ending so that you have something to progress to.

You get a fun selection of weapons at the start of each wave and it is up to you how you use them. You can shoot these crate-like things to get health and ammo so you have to make sure that you keep your eyes open for them. The game can be quite exciting in short blurts and it is ideal if you want something quick to get into.

I think that Beach Head 2000 is a fun arcade-style shooter. Yes, I will admit that the fun this game is offering is very, very shallow. However, sometimes you just want to shoot stuff and see it blow up and this game offers that. It is not the kind of game that you will play for hours on end. However, to me, this is the kind of game you can fire up once and a while to blow off some steam or even a bit of a “pallet cleanser” between other games.

Final Score

Pros:

  • The action is fast and frantic
  • It plays just like it did back in the arcade
  • The mouse is a great substitute for a trackball
  • You have plenty of powerful and awesome guns that you can use
  • It is good mindless fun

Cons:

  • The game has no end at all
  • They never added much if anything new in bringing it home from the arcade
