It's one of those N64 games never really mentioned, not sure if that's out of obscurity or infamy. It's a member of the wall-hugging camp made famous with MGS, but more mission based like the couple good stages of Mission Impossible 64. At the very least, it's the only real example of this gameplay on N64.

Any fans of the game? Irate rants? Passive-aggressive feelings?

I only learned about it very recently, and it has shown up a lot in the various Discord servers for GE/PD modding when I went searching after. I also learned that Metal Gear Solid 2 has a dogtag with WinBacks main character name to hammer that connection home.

I only jus played thru it, PS2 remake (wow all the exact routes and funny acting) and its very shallow sequel

Sweet games I only found out about in the 2010s

Most of the dogtags in MGS2 are fan names from a contest, so that may be a fan sneakily entering their name as the character's. Still is a connection of some kind, though; the community kind. I don't have perfect knowledge on it, though, so I can't be 100% certain some of them aren't dev easter eggs.



Anyway, about all I've heard of this game is the name. Seen it on lists and such. Hearing it's a "wall-hugger" like MGS1 sounds interesting and makes me wanna try it out, though.

Mostly checking the "unknown" box from the looks of it. That rather answers a few questions on its own.

The game's heralded as the first "cover-based shooter". Not sure that's completely true, but that is certainly what it is. The few people who have heard of it either love it, hate it, or go full-blown tsundere. It has problems and more potential than it used, but it's worst failing may be that it's too forgettable. Even after playing through it, can't recall anything specific about it, like areas, events, most of the plot. It's worth playing, just don't be surprised if you wake up as an amnesiac.

Anyway, wanted to ask since this crowd is a lot more likely to have played it than, say, rando mobs at work. Maybe all it needs is an editor ;*)

I had rented it out when it was still fairly new. I was enjoying it enough, but never got back into it after it went back to the store. Might be worth giving it another go some time.
