This is one of the cooler SNES games. Of course none can be better than (obligatory super metroid reference)Super Metroid but I'd put it in my top ten, or at least top fifteen.

Graphics: 7
The graphics are pretty good. They're rather nintendo-ish and animated, but that's part of what makes them great. They're not supposed to be realistic.
The animation is pretty good too. The only part of this game that I thought looked weird is when I'd pick up a BIOT and throw it. When it hits the ground, it makes this really tiny explosion and disappears.
But nobody's perfect.
My favourite part is when you leave an area and come back to find it completely devestated. After you finish at the university for the first level, take a look at the "street" level before it gets obliterated so you can get a sense.

Sound: 9
I'm surprised people have been giving sound such a low vote. Mine is nine. The sound effects themselves are good, but you have to love the music.

Gameplay: 10
I rarely give something a 10 out of 10, but this is the exception.
Not only is this game consistently fun, but it has a *huge* replay value.
The alternate endings to the game are great, and after you win the first time, you'll want to play again to see if there's another way you can win.
And you won't get bored the second time around, either.

Overall: 9
This game's flaws are few, far between, and very hard to notice.
