Ok so you know how on first person shooters on the PC like Quake and Half-Life you have to press the number keys between 1 and 5 to select your different weapons? That was invented here. At first glance this looks like a straight forward shooter but it is far from it; Cybernoid involves thinking, planning what weapons to use, hiding and stealth attacks, and all of this on top of the usual lightning reactions and shooting skills required by your average shooter. Cybernoid is often more of a platform game or a puzzler. No matter how you look at it, it's absolutely fantastic, and like all games of this era, it's rock hard.
