Alien Crush TurboGrafx 16 Review

This is a pinball game for the TurboGrafx 16.  Not your ordinary pinball game however.  You are on a two screen playing field with moving aliens, living alien pod bumpers, and a huge alien brain. The game has 2 settings, slow and fast.  Playing on each setting has different effects. I prefer to play on fast as it seems more challenging. The game play is awesome and the graphics are equally awesome and super smooth.  There are a few bonus screen that you can play where you have to kill aliens for points. The music in this game is great and very catchy.  A great game overall and fun to play anytime.  I give the game a 9 out of 10 overall.  It would have gotten a perfect 10 but it seems that they could have done a little more with it.  Something very small is missing but I am not quite sure what.

Rings Of Power Genesis Review

OK, so I have read other reviews of this game online and people love it.  I don't get it.  Maybe I am missing something?  This game is complete shit and unplayable.  I would rather play Dr Mario for hours than play this crap.  I love RPGs, but this is beyond destroyed.  Number 1, I hate "3D aspect" games, they are difficult to control, always.  Number 2, see that controller? It is on the screen constantly, blocking the view of the game.  I don't really have anything else to say about this, it is just poor.  I give it 1 out of 10 overall.  If I am missing something, please let me know and I will play it again <shrug>.

Double Dragon NES Review

This is a port of an arcade game of the same name.  They did a pretty good job translating this game to the NES.  There is a different kind of element to this version where you get experience points in addition to your score.  Each time you reach a certain point level, you get a heart and level up.  Leveling up gives you a new special move with every heart.  You can get a headbutt, a jump kick, and the ability to knee you opponent in the head and throw them to name a few.  There are two difficulty modes that make the game challenging and boss fights at the end of each level.  There is also a mode that allows you to fight against a second player like a fighting game such as Street Fighter 2.  Overall, the game play is fun and the graphics are great for the NES.  The music in this game is also pretty cool.  It has a funky kind of vibe to it.  I give the game a 7 out of 10 overall.  It would have gotten a higher rating but the amount of glitches in the game bring the rating down for me.

Jordan VS Bird Super One On One Sega Genesis Review

I am not a big fan of basketball video games and this one proves why.  The game play is mediocre at best and the game plays slow and is repetitive.  There is not much going on here except one on one basketball.  It gets tedious and is not really fun to play at all.  There is a 3 point contest and a slam dunk contest mode you can play that adds a little more to the game.  Overall this game gets a 2 out of 10 stars.  There are definitely better basketball video games out there.  The graphics and sound seem a little lower than standard for the Genesis as well. 

Best Of The Best Championship Karate NES Review

This game is complete garbage.  It is not even playable in my opinion.  The game play is so horrible and sluggish that it is painful.  It is almost impossible to hit the other person and when you do, it is impossible to tell that you did.  The graphics are reminiscent of 4 color CGA graphics on an early IBM XT and the sound is complete crap.  Talk about a complete piece of garbage.  This game gets a 0 out of 10 stars.  Stay away from it unless you like complete crap.
