I thought I was alone in this world as far as liking Double Switch. At last someone else appreciates this game. I don't know why, but I actually liked a lot of the old FMV games that were regarded as terrible...this one included. It's good to see someone else that likes this game. I did beat it once by the way... the timing on some of the traps was a pain...
I just finished playing Double Switch for the first time in years...and I suck at it. I forgot all the patterns, but it'll come back to me if I play a couple of other games. I remember playing this game for hours back in the day. And to answer the question on whether or not it's worth the painful download...well that depends on what kind of internet connection you have. If you're on dial-up, then I'd recommend finding it elsewhere, like on ebay or a local game store. If you have broadband and a decent speed place you can get it from then by all means go for it.
A great game .. I've always been partial to the FMV games, and even though a COREY was in it, the game had a lasting and fun appeal to it.
It's worth the d/l if you enjoy games like NightTrap and Wirehead .... It falls into that slot ... I'll admit, at first there will be a little fustration factor, but after 5 minutes you get the hang and will enjoy it ...
I doubt anyone is still following this message thread, but I believe I still have my step-by-step directions for passing the game that I compiled as I played this game endlessly back in 94 or so. I LOVE the FMV games for Sega CD, obviously they look outdated now but they're still the main reason I have kept my system for all these years. If anyone needs help with this or any other FMV game, just gimme a shout.
Ok this is something weird i just saw in a store: I saw what looks to be a remake of "who shot johnny rock" for xbox... but it's a dvd. Not a dvd game, just a dvd. They also had mad dog mcree there too... what are these. They can't be movies and they aren't games... but they are for the xbox.
I've sen them too .. ( They have a sticker saying " Works With XBOX, PS2 , etc .. )
They are really only dvd movies that have interactive controls. You can actually play them on a stand alone TV DVD player .. ( however, imagine trying to control a cross-hair or do anything like a controller could with your remote control !!!! )
I've Seen -
Mad Dog 2
Dragon's Lair 2
Time Traveler - ( an amazing game in it's time, hours in the arcade on this while people were playing the original MK )
