Welcome to another edition of Nostalgia Game Review, where I showcase games from the past that you should (or shouldn't) play. This edition will cover Timecop, a game for the Super Nintendo.
Based on the 1994 movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Timecop is an action game developed by Cryo Interactive Entertainment and published by JVC and Victor Interactive Software, Inc. Initially released on February 17, 1995, Timecop takes you on an adventure to stop Dr. Hans Kleindast from abusing time travel and sending the earth into a dystopian future.
Timecop feels more like an Adult Swim television show than a video game and that is unfortunate. The animations in this game are extremely ambitious for its time and the gameplay is comical. Timecop makes you feel like you're running on ice physics the entire time, slipping and sliding everywhere. The combat system feels a bit chunky as well. There isn't much direction in Timecop, either. You feel like you're running around in circles the entire time, complicating things even further.
Jean-Claude Van Damme wasn't even used to pose as Max Walker in this game! What a tragedy! The video game is just as bad as the movie, which is why you should avoid it at all costs.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
