ADMIT IT.

Sometimes you’d feel better if you could just shoot everything in sight. (But then there’s that death penalty thing.)

Time to lock and load, pal. Straight from arcades everywhere, here comes Maximum Force, where it’s you against elusive terrorists and you control the body count. You’ll board helicopters, ATV’s, underwater vehicles and shoot literally everything in sight. Gun down slimeballs on three completely different missions. Blast your way into over 35 secret rooms and blow away everything with extreme prejudice. With Maximum Force, there’s no such thing as too much firepower.

MAXIMUM FORCE. Go ahead, pull the trigger.

Trivia

  • Runs on the same engine concept as Area 51, but with human enemies rather than aliens and human experiments.
  • The game features 35 hidden rooms, each requiring some sort of on-screen activation to open. For example, shooting all the vents in a room, or shooting all the hanging photos in another.
  • The “Maximum Cool” contest promised $12,000 in various prizes along with the chance to star in the Area 51 sequel.
