Don't be fool by the 64 year old lady

This game is fucking horrible. Had a great time watching you guys play it, though.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm thinking of a different game entirely.

This game seems more like an adventure game than a SWAT simulator.

If I watched this live I would have died. I got to the part where they grenade the lady.

I lost it when the credits started again.

You guys have a best job in the world.

Wow, they even assume old-ass PC games are pick-up-and-play. "I'm just gonna stick this Police Quest disc in my XBOX and wait for the tutorial to come up, daaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. It's got regenerating health and cover mechanics, right?"

More credits, please.

AH man, so many memories. I still have the game here on my shelf. I bought it in french back then and it was a version translated in France (I'm in Canada)....the translation was so terrible that it's still hillarious today.

Oh YES! I remember how goddamn infuriating this game was!

Considering the SWAT brand started out as an offshoot of the Police Quest series, I'd say that comparison is very apt.

Mr. Long is totally the voice of Ben from Full Throttle.

If only you had a moustache, this would've all been avoided. I watched it live and was alomst late to my class because of it, it was so funny!

Yup. He probably helped get a look at locations and all that. He wrote Police Quest 4!! And it's loaded with stereotypes, messed-up shit......it's crazy! He was LAPD Chief one day, writing dying-genre video games the next!

SWAT 2 is fucking amazing.

Posted by InvaderSkooj

The grenade sequence was hilarious.

Posted by Atilac

I would love more Crusader. :)

Edited by beard_of_zeus

That dasterdly old lady is the one thing I remember from when I previously played this game. Well that, and the fact that this game is simultaneously amazing and completely infuriating. I definitely don't recall the UI being so goddamn terrible. Man, oh man.

WE RODNEY KING NOW

I want to hang out with Vinny's dad. And his mustache.

Posted by sirdesmond

I remember getting this game as a kid and maybe getting to the first mission once but other than that, I just wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what to do and being bored.

Edited by ChrisTaran

It really was Vinny at the small arms range!

Posted by Quantical

My god this is like getting stuck in a loop phoning a call center. Really damn funny though.

Edited by csl316

Holy crap, I remember trying to play this.
 
That first house... ah, brings back nothing but horrific memories.
 
Edit: Ok, this may be one of the best videos on the site.

Posted by Vodun

OH MY FUCKING GOD! One of my absolute favourite games as a kid. Sooo much nostalgia for this. In hindsight it's a quite terrible game, but nostalgia is a bitch.

Posted by SkullcrusherMountain

@csl316: Yeah, dude. I remember being like, 12? And not having ANY idea what the game wanted me to do.

One of the best vids yet, keep it up duders.

Edited by Seroth

My God, this is the funniest piece of video content on Giant Bomb in a while. I couldn't stop cracking up when the old lady shot them first, then again when they threw the grenade.

So funny. What are these guys? Comedians?

Edited by Cybexx

I played a lot of this game when it came out. It is defiantly not great but once you know what its asking of you its not a completely terrible adventure game. I mean this game is almost more of an interactive SWAT manual than anything else. Basically if you don't follow everything to the letter you either die or get chewed out. It expects you mirror every corner and slice the pie when mirroring doesn't give you a clear enough view. The later missions get a tad cooler and if you get through the sniper training you can play one of the missions as a sniper with a spotter.

I think this is the game that made me much more tolerant of trial and error games since this one is so damn picky. The later SWAT games are much better, especially SWAT 4 which was developed by Irrational, its one of the best Tactical Shooters I've played.

Vinny found the "frag an old lady" button

Posted by TheHakku

Crazy old lady!

Posted by Arrested_Developer

Dave sucks at swat.

Posted by TepidShark

Is there any difference between a blue screen & a green screen or is it just a matter of needing a solid color to key things out of?

Posted by smikey

This reminds me of how bad old adventure games could be. Christ this was unpleasant even with Vinny & Dave commentating.

Posted by Vaancor

Requesting .gif of crazy old lady walking and shooting.

Posted by RnRpax

Holy crap, memories! I frustratingly loved this game. I remember going on an fmv game stint after having played Ground Zero Texas on my neighbors Sega CD. Started with Johnny Mnemonic for the PC which I returned and got Daedalus Encounter instead (Tia Carrere, smokin'). Others I had/have were Hardline, In the 1st Degree. I should send these over to you guys if you don't have them for more fmv shenanigans.

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

Loved the Police Quest games, hated the SWAT games. Why they felt they had to call the first one Police Quest, I'll never understand, but it shit on the entire series to that point.
