People often dismiss Area 51 and its spiritual successor, Maximum Force, as being cheesy arcade garbage—and we can't disagree with those who would call it cheesy. It was. The cut scenes were laughable, the bad acting was a joke, and the way the aliens were dressed up in orange and green jumpsuits was utterly ridiculous. So, yeah, it was cheesy. But it was not garbage. With a second player, this game was an absolute blast. And it truly WAS on rails, because you would have to stay in specific locations and shoot all the aliens before you could ever move on. Simple, yes, but also extremely satisfying. We miss these kinds of games today dearly. Aw, screw it, we miss the arcade in general! Playing at home just isn’t the same. Teardrop.
