cant believe know one has had jungle strike,desert strike or rock'n'roll racers in their top5...shame on you!!!!
Desert Strike was good, as was Jungle Strike, though I prefered Urban Strike. I still remember that mission in Jungle Strike where you had to fly the Stealth Bomber, it was so difficult trying to avoid those big stone totem poles.

the one that always sticks out for me was level one in jungle strike where you had to protect the presidential motorcade,it was fairly hard for a first level i suppose thats what made the game great though not to mention the level of detail

Dunno if it was just me but IIRC the soundtrack sounded a bit like Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf?

Ah ok that explains it. What other tracks did they use just out of interest?

Again more have been mentioned I spent many hours on. Desert and Jungle Strike, may have played Urban Strike once.

Has any of these ever been re made on the 360 or anything similar?

There's a few games I'd love to see a remake on to see what they would do with todays technology.

I'm not saying all I care about is graphics, my fave RPGames are all the old ones and I'd play them over the new ones.
In fact final Fantasy is one of my all time fave series of games but I didn't complete FFXIII and therefore haven't bought XIII-2.

There was one on the amstrad I can't remember what it was called. Me and my brother used to say, "shall we play the game with the man with a bum on his chin" haha.

It was set in space, a plat form, the land looked red so I'm thinking mars, and you could fall down gaps if you didn't make the jump. So yeah a space platformer with a guy who had a big chin.
