Tetsujin Returns, known as Iron Angel of the Apocalypse: The Return in the US, is a 1st person shooter for the 3DO released in 1995.  The box of the original game (known variously as Tetsujin and Iron Angel of the Apocalypse) describes it as an 'Action Role-Playing Movie', meaning a simple 1st-person shooter with lots of live-action cutscenes.  The sequel follows this template.

The following is taken from Moby Games (http://www.mobygames.com/game/iron-angel-of-the-apocalypse-the-return):

'Tetsujin returns in this sequel to Iron Angel of the Apocalypse.  The story picks up shortly after the events of the previous game.  After his showdown with the Scientist and the Android, Tetsujin finds himself disembodied.  A mysterious corporation known as SCR gives you a new body, but their plans for you are mysterious.

The format of this game is mostly similar to the first.  This is a first person shooter that relies heavily on video cutscenes to tell a story.  The graphics engine has been improved greatly, giving this game a much faster pace than its predecessor.  Whereas the original used a combination of live actors and CG, this one uses CG to depict the humans as well.'
