GP-1 Review

GP-1 Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda There are higher stakes to racing on a motorcycle than some other modes of transportation. There’s less of an engineered safety barrier within the vehicle’s unsteady, open-faced design. And with the capability of reaching incredibly high speeds, the situation of injuring yourself by getting into an accident …

Brett Hull Hockey Review

Brett Hull Hockey Super Nintendo Review

Author: jrsupermoore I might not have spent many hours of my youth in the library reading books, but I did enjoy many a fun filled scrimmage of roller hockey with my friends in the library parking lot. Here, hard earned allowance money was spent on sticks, roller blades, knee guards — anything …

Super Back to the Future II Review

Super Back to the Future II review

Author: John Legendoffzelda Three years after the end of the Back to the Future film series, long after America gave up on the notion of a good video game adaptation, the Japan-exclusive music label Toshiba EMI released Super Back to the Future II. The game’s quality might remind players of …

Castlevania: Dracula X Review

  Author: John Legendoffzelda For all the edge and shimmering visuals apparent throughout Castlevania: Dracula X, you can still see its creators reinstating the series’ strict roots and doing so with relative panache.  No swinging from hooks, no whipping in a direction that isn’t directly in front of you, and …

True Golf Classics: Waialae Country Club Review Super Nintendo

Author: jrsupermoore I can imagine what a 15-year old Tiger Woods must have thought after playing True Golf Classics: Waialae Country Club with his factory fresh Super Nintendo in 1991. “You can choose your own caddy!”, the young golfer might have mused. “And you can alter your foot stance, choice of club, even what …

Tomorrow’s Joe Review

  Author: Masamune If you’re looking for an arcade style boxing game for the Super NES, Super Punch Out!! is really the only game in town. Or so I thought. Another title in a somewhat similar vein exists, but was only available in Japan. Ashita no Joe, or Tomorrow’s Joe …

Street Fighter II Review

Street Fighter II Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda A great video game presents immaculate execution of its ideas for interactive entertainment, and a great video game sequel uses this feat to override its existence as a follow-up. When the sequel reconfigures its established gameplay concepts with enough skill and perhaps even some accidental genius, it …

BlaZeon Review

Blazeon Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda In a regular sci-fi scrolling shooter, the sleek weaponized spacecraft being controlled by the player earns power-ups. They enhance the main weapons, or else stick close to the hull and multiply the firepower. Atlus and AI try for a novel twist on this convention with their arcade port BlaZeon, …
