Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Joey In the beginning, a helicopter carrying the CIA's newest biological weapon, called Cassandra-G, was shot down. A shell from an M-16 was found in the wreckage, and the CIA concluded that it was shot down by the super sniper Golgo-13 and that he is involved with the KGB. A group known as FIXER believe that the helicopter was shot down by the Drek Empire. In East Berlin, a man named Condor received information about Cassandra-G, and now the CIA, KGB, and DREK are after him.

Graphics 7 out of 10

The title screen and cinematic scenes were done well, but the graphics on the side-scrolling parts of the game aren't that great. When you talk to someone or go into a building, you can see a background with the person standing there, but the graphics aren't too detailed. The graphics in the maze part of the game are decent, except that everything looks the same (as you would expect).

Music and Sound 6.5 out of 10

The title screen music is good, and everything else is decent, but it does get annoying after a while. The music fits the theme of the game very well. The sound effects aren't spectacular, but they aren't bad either.

Game Challenge 9.5 out of 10

This game is very hard, on the side-scrolling stages you be either doing really good, or will be dead. Your life is always going down no matter what you do, and when you defeat an enemy it goes up. This game goes on for a ridiculously long time (and without any save or password) and it can be nearly impossible to escape from the mazes without making a map, which I have never done and consequently, have never beaten this game.

Game Play-Fun 6.5 out of 10

Everyone who I've seen play this game seems to enjoy the part where you blow the guys head off from the helicopter. Even though you don't get to aim on that part. When playing this game, you won't get sick of doing the same thing for a long time, (unless you're trapped in the maze). There is a side-scrolling mode, and underwater mode, a pan/zoom mode where you shoot people (the sequel to this game improved this mode a lot), mazes, and even a side scrolling shooter type of level.


Getting stuck in the mazes can suck, and can get killed unexpectedly and sometimes unfairly on some of the walking parts.

Replayability 6.5 out of 10

Since there's a lot of different things to do in this game, you won't always get tired of the entire game. And it is pretty long, so if you play on winning it you will have to play non-stop for a long time. You probably won't get tired of finishing this game, but you probably won't even want to try after playing for 3 hours straight.

Game Value 7 out of 10

It's pretty different than most NES games, I got this at a flea market. I almost got the sequel to this, Golgo-13 the Mafat Conspiracy, but I wasn't sure which one was the one I rented years ago. It turned out to be the one I didn't get, but I wasn't disappointed with this game.

Overall 7 out of 10

It's a hard game, but you do get unlimited continues. (it even keeps track of how many times you've continued) It's one of the few games I own but haven't finished. If you want a difficult game, that has a story to tell, and want to shoot people at the same time, then get this game.
