The Very True, Incredibly Epic and Completely Heroic story of how Lieutenant G.W. Bush won the first gulf war.
"Take That, Iraqistan!"
1992. Without warning a madman has emerged in the Middle East and threatens to start Armageddon. The international community knows very little about this menace, the self-styled General Kilbaba, but we have enough evidence of his military capability to take his threats very seriously. The President of the United States has chosen his own son to fly a series of dangerous pre-emptive campaigns in the desert to vanquish this inimical despot.
OK, I started making this as a joke thinking it would take less than a week but it turned out to be a whole load more effort than I imagined. It was the only Megadrive game I had that I thought could make a reasonable movie although I was rather surprised when I started and noticed Amy Hennig's name on the titles so a nice shout out to my first plot walkthroughs (LoK). I just thought a an 'Epic' version would be more fun but it was inspired by the 'Michael Bay eating a bowl of cerial' video by ChrisCapel1998 (hence the Con Air main theme for the first mission briefing). The idea of playing as George W Bush as the hero was something I only came up with as I was finishing the last piece yesterday (I guess I've been watching too much Robot Chicken).
Featuring the soundtracks from the films-
Air Force One - Jerry Goldsmith
Black Hawk Down - Hans Zimmer
Con Air - Mark Mancina and Trevor Rabin
Crimson Tide - Hans Zimmer
Independence Day - David Arnold
The Rock - Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams
Saving Private Ryan - John Williams
I do not own the game or the music (well I do, I just don't own the rights).
I decided to make use of each of the available Co-pilots in the game starting with the worst. I mean come on! Who is going to pick the co-pilot who fires like a nutter and jambs the winch? So I had him charge in guns blazing, run out of ammo and get us quickly shot down. It fits in well with the Black Hawk Down soundtrack which comes in with co-pilot 2. Co-pilot 2's first job is to rescue Lt. GWB and "Mr D" from near the power station where they were shot down. I took the character description of "Tracker" a bit liberally however and made him a heartless sociopath who enjoys killing civilians.
Independence day - The day we fight back
Black Hawk Down - Chant
Con Air - Main Theme
The Rock - In the Tunnels
