It's... Name That Box Blurb!

Choose a snippet of some blurb text from an Amiga game box and post it here to see who can name that blurb first. As in the screenshot thread, the correct guesser gets to choose the next blurb. Obviously certain key bits of information need to be omitted to keep it challenging

First up...

"The evil *****, tyrant of the highest order, lies hidden deep in his underground lair. Allied security forces demand his reign to cease, one man is needed, that man is you".

No, some more:

**** ***, the arcade follow-up to *** **** ******* **** is now available with breath-taking full-screen animation and sound of the original ******** game. Advanced compression techniques allow for over 40 fast-action scenes to be brought to life on your personal computer.
