Picks and Pans Review: Back in Black
As video game premises go, you can't do much better than battling giant alien bugs. A new Men in Black CD-ROM, based on this summer's biggest box office hit, also manages to capture some of the movie's charm. In the game, released this month by publisher The Design League, Earth is being threatened by yet another alien plot. As animated versions of the three-screen MiBs, gamers solve logic puzzles and combat creepy crawlers to save humanity Players should choose their alter egos with care: Will Smith's Agent J is "street-smart and quick," says game producer David Koenig, while Linda Fiorentino's Agent L is a kung fu expert, and Tommy Lee Jones's K is a "bar brawler." Best of all, the movie's over-the-top weaponry (including the memorably mighty Noisy Cricket) is included.
