....urgh....from the cover alone, you know, you're in a very grey area. Yup, Co-Stars this time are a native african tribe. And...it's not as bad as you think. Sure, you got your witch doctors, half-naked men with spears and so on (no women, surprisingly), but they made a point out of them being blinded by the sheer power the Nazis demonstrated...and even then, the chief thought otherwise. Still: Gabe donning the outfit of a witch doctor (where did they get this mask?), the talk about "having the tongue of a serpent", and so on...yeah, this is very 60es casual racist. Maybe there were tribes like this, but this was obviously a white man's look at black africa.

That being said, the start was quite enjoyable, with some nice interaction with a Nazi pilot, and a nice little finish at the end. If only the middle part wasn't so unlucky...
