You don't watch Some Like It Hot for its Spielberg special effects, you don't expect a 1966 E-Type to drive like a Bugatti Veyron and you don't expect Magic Carpet to measure up to recent games: it's been out for 12 years. But is still has that great visual atmosphere, the eerie sound and music, the gameplay still gets frantic and many of the levels present a real challenge. One of the complaints from certain players was that it was too difficult. Yeah- well, taking out a Wyvern with Single Fireball while a meteor-flinging Crab munches up your castle takes a bit of doing... One of the most imaginative and efective shoot-em-ups ever: just don't expect it to be Battlefield 1942 or Oblivion.
