Reviewed byndial
Cannon Fodder is a mouse controlled arcade-strategy game! It was released for various home computers and video game console systems such as the Amiga, Atari ST, Acorn Archimedes, PC (MS-DOS), Panasonic 3DO, Nintendo SNES, Atari Jaguar. The Atari Jaguar version does not support mouse, so you have to control your troops with the console's awkward joypad!
The premise behind this game is simple: You take control of a special ops team that's spawned in a large variety of hostile territories and landscapes, on a search and destroy mission against enemy patrols, military bases, buildings and vehicles. The game is displaying Sensible Software's special sense of humor and uncanny ability to make wickedly playable games, so Cannon Fodder is funny and smart at the same time. Note: In fact, Cannon Fodder is far too smart for the media of the time who were outraged by the game's over-the-top comic violence and seemingly casual attitude towards war combat, all being clearly sarcastic. The available weapons for your team include the standard machine gun, grenades and bazookas. But advancing through the game you'll have to locate and take more explosive and powerful weapons. You will also have to be alerted at all times to avoid booby traps and ground artillery! During the mid 90s, no game could match Cannon Fodder's ingenious level design and delightful attention to detail. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the Jaguar does not support a mouse, the game is quite difficult to control with its already awkward joypad. But this issue does not stop the game from being a very addictive formula! In addition, we should never forget the real message of this game: beneath the whimsical cartoon graphics the developers send us a message about the cost of war that will start to weigh down on you as the Boot Hill title-menu screen fills with memorials dedicated to your fallen troops whilst other new recruits keep coming...for more!

The graphics look stunning and colorful, with impressively made forests, buildings, deserts, snowy areas and tiny soldiers that look like footballers in Sensible Soccer, wearing army suits! The visuals are pretty similar to the original Amiga version and the sound is absolutely fun, featuring a great intro theme song called "War Never Been So Much Fun", composed exclusively for the game by the lead game designer Jon Hare (along with the sound programmer Richard Joseph). The game also offers a variety of amazing and funny digitized, in-game SFX!
