Arkanoid (NES) review


"This is the most addictive, most entertaining puzzle game ever made. It is better than the modernday puzzle games, and nothing is even close. Arkanoid is a great game that I fell in love with, and found myself playing night after night for around an hour. Pretty good for a game I can only make it to the 3rd level on. "



This is the most addictive, most entertaining puzzle game ever made. It is better than the modernday puzzle games, and nothing is even close. Arkanoid is a great game that I fell in love with, and found myself playing night after night for around an hour. Pretty good for a game I can only make it to the 3rd level on.

GRAPHICS (7/10): Graphics are not to crucial in the game, and therefor not much to them. Except the colors are stupendous. This is probably the most colorful game out there, and that makes it fun.

SOUND (7/10): Some people would not like this music, seeing it is just one of those beeping music. Except I love that vintage music. It was great in Castlevania, it was great in Zelda, it was great in Metroid, and it is not as good as them but it still is good. How can anyone not like the vintage beeping.

GAMEPLAY (48/50): This game is ADDICTING. When I first got it, I was wondering what the point was. I was kinda disapointed, except I was thinking this while still playing the game. No matter what my head was thinking, my hands were still playing. It's a simple move the paddle, hit the ball game, but yet it is so much more. There are many bonuses, some make your paddle larger, some make you shoot out bullets, some created more balls. No matter what you think this game is the hardest game I own to put down. I can't seem to really get past the 3rd level, but I'll keep on trying, cause it is so much fun.

CONTROLS (13/15): Very smooth controls. The paddle moves well, when it is told too. It does not stick too much, and the ''B'' button is used to shoot the bullets when you have them. This is fairly responsive. Do not worry though, the controls will not hinder you much, if at all.

REPLAYABILITY (10/10): If you have gotten this far in the review, and did not realize this game was getting a 10 here, you are pretty dumb. This game is ADDICTING. No matter how many times I say it, it still doesn't do it justice. Just play the game, you will then understand.

DIFFICULTY (3/5): Really the difficulty doesn't matter, except I wonder how fun the game would be, if I could get past the 3rd level. The levels are all tough, and will make you make mistakes. Doesn't affect the game too much, but it is pretty hard.

OVERALL (88/100): One more time; This game is ADDICTING. Really that is all there is too it. If you want to sleep at night and keep your grades up, do not buy this game at all, for it will fill up your free time. Once you put it into your NES, there is no letting go.

Rating: 8.8/10

Star Fox Assault (GameCube)

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak II (PlayStation 2)

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
