What genre is this game, anyway? Is there any chance for me to enjoy it?

(Not that I really have time, just curious )

Same here, I remember the one guy had a cameo in LBA 2, but otherwise never knew much about TC.

There are some videos on youtube I remember. It looks like some kind of 3d side-scroll fighting game
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4bGZ...eature=related or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G-y83Aj3LU
Doesn't look bad at all
afaik the main character travels from era to era, and has to fight different enemies, like samurais, prehistoric beasts and german soldiers, and also the weapons you can find change, based on the place and time you are

a game with a concept like this would be great in modern times: I've never heard of anything like that except for Kingdom Hearts (where eras are replaced by disney movies, but so characters and enemies vary from place to place)

You guys never played TC? Wow. Uh, get cracking guys, it's a great game ! Controls could be tighter, but it's filled with a great imagination and creative action. It's an interesting piece of what action can also be, compared to the way it is today.

Oh and hi. I've been lurking for a long time. Don't often have anything to add

Maybe that's why the Time Commando hero appeared earlier in that scene from LBA2. Oh and, Twinsen killed him.

Wait, what do you people mean with "never played Time Commando" ?

This game is up there alongside the LBA's. It's definitely a must-play.

But I fear that if you haven't played it as a kid at the same time you've played LBA's you won't feel the same as I do towards this game, it might just seem some crude action game. Anyhoo, I had looooooooots of fun with it back in the day. At the very least, you'll love the scenarios and unusual enemies.

I have the original big box for a long time and never finished the game. I actually played few and never got too far.

Have the original game/box, played it, finished it. It was good, not fantastic. Seemed a tad bit like a budget game to finance LBA2.
