The Hunt for Red October is a side-scroller that is loosely based on the movie of the same name. The player plays as the Red October submarine and must fight their way through the game. The game is very odd, as one of the boss battles involves battling a giant squid, which was not in the movie.

Music

Out of all the bad things this game contains, the music is definitely not one of them. This game offers one of the most sophisticated soundtracks on the SNES. John Spence put together fitting orchestral tracks in the game. The song even contains Ode to Joy which was in the movie. The Game Over music is also a short, looping, arranged version of the song.
