Skeleton Krew is a fun 3/4 perspective game in the vein of contra. It looks good, plays well ,and you get 3 characters to choose from! Definately play it with a friend. I give it a 9.

Although it's fun in one player mode, with two players this game really comes into it's own! Superb fun!

This is a great isometric shooter that you can play alone or with a friend. It is a bit repetitive but overall it ends quickly. Perhaps too quickly. I finished the game once solo and later again with a friend. I sold it not long after because I just had no more interest in it.

Perhaps one of the things that makes it shorter than other games of this type is that it plays fair. Especially the boss levels, which won't have you tossing away a few lives just to get past them.

A fun game, not frustrating at all, but probably too short for it's own good. For more like this, try The Chaos Engine / Soldier of Fortune.

I never really got in to this game, it is totally repetitive constant shooting right through, the sprites very small and it feels odd rotating 360 in isometric perspective. I'd only give it 4/10

!!!!!WARNING!!!! Do NOT be taken by some of the comments stated on this board that Skeleton Krew is Halfway decent. The Game is cool for about the first 4-5 minutes, the I guarantee you'll be bored. The graphics are plain, nothing special, the gameplay is unbelievably repeatative... you walk around shooting at things that shoot back at you, that's basically the whole basis of the game, there's no motives, no special missions, no nothing, just guide your corny little character through corny developed levels and do it over and over but with different colors on your screen. Sound fun? Hardly. I wouldn't even suggest renting this game, let alone buy it. Take my word for it - That's why you've probably never even heard about it 'till now - total flop. Peace

Ha haa! Theres absolutly nothing wrong with this game at all, a latter Megadrive classic in the vein of Chaos Engine or Loaded (something like that. It's a nice bit of shoot'em-up fun! After all, isn't that what games are about?
