Wildest Arcade You’ve Never Played – Lucky & Wild – Cinemassacre Review
Sure, the new Mortal Kombat movie just came out today but I need some time to properly review it. So, Justin and I decided to put up a review today that he wanted to do for years. It’s on the 1993 (prototyped in 1992) arcade game “Lucky & Wild” by Namco. L&W is a first-person racing/shooter that fits right in the buddy cop genre like Tango & Cash and Starsky and Hutch. However, it’s super cartoony and over the top. Players choose to be one of two different characters: Lucky, who is always dressed in fashionable suits and does both driving and shooting; and Wild, who is a wild and crazy guy who only shoots. The object of the game is to help the two heroes capture five wanted suspects in five rounds of high-speed chases.
