Zero Tolerance from QUByte Interactive and PIKO is an old-school first-person shooter for the Sega Genesis that is now getting a PlayStation release along with bonus games. Zero Tolerance was originally developed by Technopop and published by Accolade on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive way back in 1994. In it, you’re in control of the titular Zero Tolerance strike force that is called into action when the Europa-1 flagship is attacked by an unknown force of apparently extraterrestrial nature.

Since this release is the Zero Tolerance Collection, that means there’s more than one game to play, right? Along with the original Zero Tolerance game in all its glory, we’re also getting the unreleased sequel Zero Tolerance Underground, as well as a prototype for Beyond Zero Tolerance, which was the sequel that was originally in development way back when. While Zero Tolerance and Zero Tolerance Underground are available right away, you’ll need to complete one or the other to gain access to the Beyond Zero Tolerance prototype.

 

There will be five characters for you to play as. There’s Satoe Ishii, codename Soba. She’s a specialist in communications and radio, as well as a highly accurate marksman. Thomas Gjoerup, codename Basse, is a surveillance systems specialist. Tony Ramos, codename Weasel, is a specialist in infiltration operations, including evasion. Justin Wolf, codename JJWolf, is a medical specialist with advanced training in projectile weapons. Scott Haile, codename Psycho, is an explosive expert trained in demolition, ballistics, bomb defusal, and countermeasures.

Since this is a first-person shooter, you’ll move your character with the left analog stick, attacking with the Circle and changing the selected item with the Square button. The X button can be used to jump or squat. You will be able to attack with a handgun, a shotgun, a flamethrower, mines, and even a rocket launcher! For each level, you’ll need to pay attention to the counter on the left side of the screen, where you can see how many enemies are on that floor. Once you’ve defeated all enemies, you’ll have secured the floor and will be able to safely move on to the next one.

 

Your weapons will be displayed at the top of the screen, and you’ll cycle through them with every press of the Square button. The gameplay area is small compared to other first-person shooters on Sega Genesis – Bloodshot and Duke Nukem 3D – but you do get a very useful map displayed at all times at the center of the screen, which will allow you to survey each area and spot enemies as they pop up. If you pause the game, you’ll get to see the map for the entire floor, but this won’t show where enemies are located. At least you will get to see where you’re located.

The collection has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The list includes 6 Bronze trophies, 8 Silver trophies, and 8 Gold trophies. Most of the objectives to complete are tied to Zero Tolerance, with three of them requiring you to play Zero Tolerance Underground. There are trophies for clearing the first four floors in Zero Tolerance, defeating 25, 50, and 100 enemies with the handgun, the shotgun, and the flamethrower. You’ll have to complete a floor by using only the handgun, complete a floor by using only the shotgun and complete a floor without collecting a med kit. The trophies for Zero Tolerance Underground ask that you beat a level with 30 HP or less, beat a level with 90 HP or more, and complete a level without clearing the floor.

Zero Tolerance is one of only a handful of first-person shooters on the original Sega Genesis, and it’s now getting a second chance to shine in a new generation. Add the unreleased sequel Zero Tolerance Underground, the prototype for Beyond Zero Tolerance, and a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and you have a release that is easy to recommend for fans of the genre. The Zero Tolerance Collection is out on PlayStation 4 with a $9.99 asking price.
