Reviewed by Danielle L. Rare's done it again! This time, they made a masterpiece about an evil space king named Mizar who terrorizes the galaxy with his army of insects and spends a lot of his free time terrorizing the adorable little Ewok-type things named tribals. Well Juno and Vela, two kick-butt space twins, aren't going to take it anymore! They set off for adventure to bust up Mizar's army and set the tortured Tribals free. They get help along the way with robots, their dog, and others. Will Juno and Vela save the day, or get blown away by a horde of evil alien ants? You decide!

Graphics: 10 out of 10

This game has silky-smooth animation. Even during the fiercest shoot-outs, the frames don't skip a beat. Also, the polygons don't show like they do in other N64 games. The lighting is also used very well to achieve mood. You may go from a brightly lit battleship to a gloomy old swamp. The effects for that are excellent. The characters are portrayed in great detail, from the furry Tribals to the slimy insects. Also, when you shoot your gun at an ant, you can actually see it hit your target and the blood spatter. A nice, if gory, touch.

Music and Sound: 9 out of 10

The sound effects in this game rock! Each gun makes a different sound when it hits something, and I love the little sound the Tribals make when you talk to them. The beginning music is especially good. The music does many things. It sets the mood (a spaceship might have a really blood-pumping soundtrack, were as a jungle is a little more mellow), gets you pumped for action, and sometimes gets stuck in your head. It would have been cool if they added more voice clips, but lets not quibble. This has great sound.

Game Challenge: 10 out of 10

I admit, there were some times when I got my butt kicked because I was wondering around half-dead. It does get a little irritating at times when you can't get through a world without the ants blowing your head off fifty times, but its not boringly easy either. I didn't like at some times when I couldn't figure out where I was going in a world, I kept going in circles. It was a little hard, but not too much so.

Game Play-Fun: 8 out of 10

What could be better than blasting holes in ants? (Please, don't report me for animal abuse) I suppose fighting ants and rescuing Tribals is fun for awhile, but I thought it would have been better if there were more side-quests. I also didn't like some of the frustrating things, like dying constantly and the maze-like worlds. Sometimes it was hard to figure out what to do! The frustration killed a lot of the fun.


OK, very frustrating at some points. You go through a world fifty times in circles, die a hundred times, and you still realize that you have no idea what to do next! Grr! I had the strategy guide parked next to me the whole time I had it rented, and it was really irritating to have to do that. I like games where I can play by myself, and I hate the ones that require me flipping through a guide every five seconds. It was a little hard to figure out what to do in this game (besides kill bugs, JOY!)

Replayability: 8 out of 10

After you beat it, what next? I suppose you could play it again, now that you know what to do, or rescue all of the Tribals. But... what would be the point? The game does have a multi-player mode that would kill some time. But, after doing that for awhile, you may just put this game away for a couple of months before you get the urge to smash some bugs again.

Game Value: 10 out of 10

Its hard to find this game for more than $20. Most websites I've seen advertise it at $15 or $16. So, it is definitely worth it. You get a full 20 hours of play, probably more, a multi-player mode, and you'll probably play it over again at least once. Its a pretty cool game for such a low price.

Overall: 8 out of 10

All in all, if you have $16 to spend on a game, this may as well be it. Its a little frustrating at times, but its still pretty good. It has great graphics and sound, awesome weapons, and a pretty nifty multi-player. So, if you need a game for less than $20, why not buy Jet Force Gemini?
