Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits Volume 1 N64 Review

I generally like arcade compilations because they have cool arcade games you can play.  This one contains games that I do not care for unfortunately.  Defender is OK but I can only play it for a few minutes before I tire of it.  Same with Robotron 2084.  Joust I just hate period.  Spy hunter is frustrating and boring.  Root beer tapper is just a game I don't care for, and Sinistar is OK.  These are the actual arcade ROMS and they play pretty well on the N64.  Overall, I am going to give this a 6 out of 10 stars and I am being generous because I don't like the games that they included.

Kid Kool NES Review

Kid Kool and the quest for the seven wonder herbs is the full title for this platformer on the NES.  The game is super repetitive.  Not a good kinda Super Mario repetitive either.  The game play is horrendous.  It is one of those games where you feel like you are playing in double gravity.  The controls are not very responsive at all and it is very hard to get used to.  Another thing that drives me crazy about the game is that when you jump up beyond the limitation of the screen, it stops and scrolls the screen up.  It you are running and you jump to clear a water hazard of something, it has to redraw the screen twice.  Trust me, it sucks trying to play with that going on.  Overall, I give the game a 3 out of 10 stars.  Not very good at all and I will probably never play it again.

Putter Golf Playstation Review

This is a putt putt golf game for the Playstation.  The game is actually pretty fun.  You can select from several different modes when you start.  There is regular mode which is just a basic course setup and there is trick mode with ramps and tunnels, and there is a mixed mode with both.  There is also a practice mode.  You can play against the computer or against a human player.  The graphics not great but OK for a PS1 title.  The game play is pretty good though and it doesn't get really frustrating like some golf games.  They kept the interface simple which works great for the game.  The music is pretty decent as with most PS1 titles.  The game also has pretty good re playability and great fun factor.  Overall I give the game 7 out of 10 stars.  Check it out, it is a fun game.

Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures Genesis Review

I try to give every game I play an equal chance.  This turd of a game is one of the worst I have ever played in my life.  I sat through about 30 minutes of this crap and it was all I could stomach.  I mean seriously, just keep pumping out crap games and put the pac-man franchise name on it and people will buy it?  The game play is absolutely horrible and a chore to even play.  Pac-man walks around aimlessly while you have a sling shot to hit things on the screen to make him do different tasks.  He acts t\like the biggest wuss in the world too, whining and complaining.  Stay away from this game, period, unless you like torture and non fun.  Overall I give it a 1 out of 10 stars.  It did not get a zero rating due to the fact that the music and graphics are almost halfway decent.

Dr Mario Game Boy Review

I never really cared for this game very much.  This version is identical to the NES version.  The purpose of the game is that pills drop, you line them up with the corresponding colors or in this case grey scales.  When you get 4 of the same it clears.  The goal is to make a four match on the viruses that are randomly generated.  Overall I give the game 5 out of 10 stars.  Some people love the game and think it is the best thing in the world.  I am not one of those people that really like it.

High Speed NES Review

I don't care for video pinball games.  This one is nothing spectacular.  It is a port of an actual pinball game.  It seems very sluggish and repetitive.  It gets really boring after a few games and doesn't really have much going one.  I think they could have done a lot better with this game.  It seems thrown together and not very well done.  They tried to spice it up a bit by putting in little obstacles that capture your ball and stuff but it really fell short.  This game has a low re-playability and will more than likely sit on the shelf for years and years.  Overall I give it a 3 out of 10 stars.
