She called herself "Red" and she looked too hot to handle. She needed help; the kind of help only a hardened, street-smart private eye like you could give her. She said her boyfriend had been murdered and the local cops didn't seem too keen on finding out who had done the deed. Grab your piece for protection and begin the investigation in this port of the 1991 laser disc arcade game. Who Shot Johnny Rock? is a shooting game created in a way to give the player the sense of being in an old-fashioned film noir. The presentation is that of a live-action movie. Scenes are acted out to tell the story and the player regularly required to scroll a cursor around the screen to aim at bad guys, pressing an "Enter" button to shoot deserving targets.
This full-motion video shooting game will run on most DVD movie players. Publisher Digital Leisure packages this DVD video disc in three different ways, to remind consumers of the three main platforms on which it will work. Some packages of Who Shot Johnny Rock? are marked "PlayStation 2 Compatible," some are marked "Xbox Compatible," and some are released for regular DVD movie players with no mention of a particular console. It should be noted that no matter how it is packaged, this disc is actually a standard DVD and not a "game disc." Since the Xbox does not play DVD movies straight out of the box, Xbox users will need to have an Xbox DVD Movie Playback Kit, sold separately, to play this DVD version of Who Shot Johnny Rock? ~ T.J.
