Who Shot Johnny Rock for the 3DO
Unless you have the American Laser Games Game Gun, you probably won't get very far in this move-the-cursor-and-shoot game (as was the case in the earlier Mad Dog McCree) - the control pad is just too slow. For the 3DO system, Johnny Rock suffers from inexplicably substandard graphics (the images are so blurry you can't tell what's going on at times) and frustrating gameplay. There is plenty of action and the whodunnit aspect of the game is welcome, but the technical aspects hamper the overall product.
