The title screen

The player alternatively assumes the roles of three members of the Able Squad: Lt. J.T. Marsh, Sgt. Rita Torres and Wolf Bronsky.[1] Depending on the character, the gameplay alternates between "a shooter, a platformer, and a fighting game" genres.[2]

Reception[edit]

Exosquad_(video_game) negative to moderate reviews. EGM for example gave it a score of 3.75 out of 10. Most recently Sega-16 gave the game 5 out of 10. Although the game had been praised for its graphics and diverse gameplay, it fell short in all three. Reviewers pointed out the largest flaw by far being the game's problematic controls.
