Remember Magic Carpet? This game needs a remake | Digitally Downloaded

Retro review of one of the early pioneers of multiplayer FPS action. EA should own the license to this now, given it picked up other Bullfrog titles (such as Theme Park), so it's about time Magic Carpet got a new lease on life:

Aside from a visual upgrade, there isn’t a whole lot we’d like to see changed for a Magic Carpet reboot. Online multiplayer would be necessary, and an expanded range of enemies would help, but for the most part, Magic Carpet could survive intact in the modern era. (PC, PS3, Retro) 4.5/5

I thought Magic Carpet was downright awful (on PSOne at least) :P. I was even more upset when I only later found out it was made by BullFrog, which was one of my favorites at the time with Theme Park/Hospital and Dungeon Keeper.

Good on you for giving this ugly duckling some attention though. Always nice to see people sticking with the underdog.

I played this a long long time ago in my really slow Compaq Presario PC. Damn, desktop made a lot of noise.

They should release it on the NGP via playstationsuit. That would be great. Also i would like to see a remake of Twensens Odyssey

I still have a version for my Saturn. Bought it in Japan and the manual is Japanese but the game itself is english.

Very fun game...

Recommend anyone that is looking for something new then get this OLD game on PSN. Would be nice If I could get an XBLA version.
