Rated: PG
Parental Guidance Advised

Iczer 1

Review by Don Kreipke:

A three-act sci-fi/fantasy where an elf-like lady (Iczer 1) must defend the Earth against takeover by an alien race composed solely of females. An action video, it contains some semi-graphic violence and a motley collection of some really ugly monsters. A mild amount of full figure nudity present, as the mecha co-pilots have to disrobe in order to drive the vehicles (curiously, the main pilots DO NOT!). Also, right at the beginning, there's a very short sequence (not terribly graphic, though) of alien girl-to-girl frolicking in bed

Iczer 3

Review by Don Kreipke:

[ 18kb ]

A three hour miniseries (6 episodes) where Iczer 1's elf-like juvenile sister gets to defend the Earth against yet another group of dastardly aliens. Billed as an "action comedy," there is a more humorous interaction of characters, and the level of violence is somewhat less than in Iczer 1 (about like Indiana Jones in live-action terms). In the time span between Iczer 1 and Iczer 3, mecha control design hasn't improved; so, co-pilots must still get into their birthday suits to drive them.
