Blasphemy.

Toy Commander was (and still is) my favourite Dreamcast game. Absolutely love it and have played it to completion a couple of times. Absolutely nothing wrong with the gameplay mechanics or camera whatsoever.

I have, and then I traded it in on a website called Playswap where it was worth a ridiculous amount of points and got a boatload of 360 games in exchange. Then Playswap went bust. Odd that. Incidentally No Second Prize was a decent motorbike game with a helmet view camera, but the handlebars on the screen didn't turn as you went round corners which got a bit disorientating.

Never heard of it. Is it one of those 2/10 shovelwares or something similar?

:shock: You are kidding me, right?
Agent Armstrong was a very cool action platformer coded by 8bit legend Raffaele Cecco who programmed the Cybernoid games, released by Virgin Games on Psone in 1997.
Surprised you didnt know that, dude. :shock:

I've just watched a few youtube vids and I have to say I've never seen that game before, although it looks really cool. Kind of like a Green Beret re-imagining. Pity I missed it the first time around. :(

As for Harrier Attack - Yes indeed.

Mentioning a Durell game had me thinking of Saboteur! ZX Spectrum. :lol:

Yes. :) Thought it was a very good arcade game (loved the soundtrack at the time) and Graftgold did a cracking Spectrum conversion, even if it was a little....yellow.
