RoboCop 3 Review

Robocop 3 Review SNES

Author: John Legendoffzelda The one interesting part of Ocean’s leaden adaptation of RoboCop 3 is that their game precedes the film by an entire year. Not many licensed games have ever accidentally spoiled the entirety of their sources before people got to see the source. But then, there wasn’t any …

Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures Review

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures Review SNES

Author: John Legendoffzelda The first review of a Super Nintendo game I ever wrote was my hard pan of Super Star Wars. And looking back I see my review was a little vague about what I found so disappointing. You see, the issue is not about how “the only good …

ActRaiser 2nd Opinion

ActRaiser Review Super Nintendo

Author: Indy1988 For every Super Mario Bros. or Legend of Zelda, there always seems to be a game that gets brushed off in favor for more popular franchises. To worsen the situation is the fact that the game may actually be good! ActRaiser is such a game. Every SNES fan …

Whizz Review

Whizz Review Super Nintendo SNES Hub

Author: John Legendoffzelda By the time of Whizz, Titus and Flair Software’s isometric puzzle-platformer about a rabbit in a magician’s dapper tux, the gaming community had already entered the dregs of the Super Nintendo days.

Beavis and Butt-Head Review

Beavis and Butthead Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda The box art to Beavis and Butt-Head, in lieu of an ESRB rating, has a small rectangle warning that the game is “Appropriate for Ages 13 and Older”. The message is more of a statement about the title characters’ knee-jerk reputation than it is an indicator of …

James Bond Jr. Review

Author: John Legendoffzelda Some terrible video games let you know exactly what you’re in for. It isn’t simply that the game is a pile of dreary, uninspired gameplay elements Scotch-taped together by the developers – there’s always some kind of extra warning signal. This game’s case of red alert awfulness …

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, …

Animaniacs Review

Animaniacs Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda How much moving around is there in the Super Nintendo video game of Animaniacs? The Warner brothers (and the Warner sister) go into their idle animations, a dance where they shake their behinds in unison, not two seconds after the player leaves them still – that’s how …

Cool World Review

Cool World Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda Ocean’s video game adaptation of Cool World is the sensation of the original film multiplied by ten. Back in the summer of 1992, the movie was received as a frustrating disappointment – an incoherent, down-and-dirty Who Framed Roger Rabbit variation that wasn’t funny or even that dirty. …
