The NES was perhaps one of Nintendo's biggest and best selling products of the 1980s, post Crash of 83. More popular in the United States than it ever was in the UK and other parts of the world.
Vice: Project Doom was released by American Sammy in 1991. Being released that late in the NES' life cycle means that this game went largely unnoticed by many players, as by this point, they'd moved into the SNES, released in 1990 and the Genesis, released in 1989. This was despite having a cover of Nintendo Power
Vice: Project Doom remains an underrated classic, It was adventurous for it's time as it blended Spy Hunter style driving stages, with Ninja Gaiden style platforming sections and even Bayou Billy style sniping stages. This is one that should definitely belong in any NES library.
