Here comes an another party game. If you finished "Dynamite Deka 2", you might want to give this a try. First of all, this game isn't the best DC game, but it is a lot fun. The playing style is quite similar to PSX "The Contra Adventure" "Apocalypse" or "Assault Retribution". Furthermore, this game is two player simultaneous. Unfortunately, the game isn't compatible with DC gun. But, you can use your Puyo Puyo pack with this.

"EXPENDABLE" is a pure shooting game, which allows you to destroy all most everything. But remember you have to help hostages who are sitting naked somewhere in the stage. (These hostages are waiting for you; but they are Covered by poison bomb so you have to use a "Cry-o-key" to open the bomb capsule.) You have to beat some aliens, which have the key. The game contains 16 stages. The first few stages are very easy and simple; however, as far as you go, the game it's getting harder and harder. And, I could imagine in the middle of the game, you start pushing continue button many times. (Yes, it has an unlimited continue mode) It's addictive.

Tag play is a lot of fun. But, it doesn't work well all the time. For instance, if you and your partner are standing in front of gate, and the gate is about closing either opening, you and your partner must move same direction otherwise one player is going to be stuck in front of the gate. Also, you can't move 360degree freely (Wait that movement until "Shenmue" is coming) so, you can't dive into halls or jump on cars. Moreover, if you go wrong way, you will see a direction mark which points you to follow the mark.
Here are six hints to play this game easily for you:

Hint 1; use your side step to escape from enemies.
Hint 2; use right weapon to kill them. (Shot gun, lesser, bazooka…)
Hint 3; try to find hidden items and areas.
Hint 4; save your bullets.
Hint 5; remember, before you pick up fourth weapon that you need, use unnecessary weapon otherwise you can't get the fourth weapon.
Hint 6; use wisely all the weapon for right missions.

In short, from ATARI to GENESIS we used to play these shooting games all the time. But, 32 bit machines like PSX and SEGA SATURN mainly support 2D or 3D fighting, RPG, adventure games. And, they just remake some old school shooting games with better graphics. On the other hand, "EXPENDABLE" is original and its definitely a 90's game looking.
