Jacac (NES) review


"Buy big collections of games from various people, you always have the fillers, and that is what Jacac is; a filler. For a filler it isn't that bad, and it is very similiar to the much more famous Iron Tank. You ride around in a tank and shoot them from your barrels. Not something worth buying, but when you buy big collections you always have the no names and at least this one is somewhat fun. "



Buy big collections of games from various people, you always have the fillers, and that is what Jacac is; a filler. For a filler it isn't that bad, and it is very similiar to the much more famous Iron Tank. You ride around in a tank and shoot them from your barrels. Not something worth buying, but when you buy big collections you always have the no names and at least this one is somewhat fun.

STORY (0/5): This is a game that could have a story, but it doesn't. Why am I riding around in this dumb tank? I have no clue. Who am I fighting? Wouldn't I like to know.

GRAPHICS (7/10): The graphics are fairly nice as you ride around in your fairly detailed tank. There are backgrounds as you journey around the forested areas. The enemies are obviously all look the same, as in most NES games.

SOUND (5/10): There are a few tracks throughout the game, depending if you are in a boss battle, or the normal tranversing. Nothing too great, but nothing that sucks either.

GAMEPLAY (22/60): This isn't that bad. You are a tank and you go around shooting or running over your enemies. You tranverse basically on a path, but you can go off of a bit to take out others. If you have played Iron Tank, you can definitely play Jacac as the gameplay is identical. Their are bosses at various intervals, although you likely won't make it to many of them. The controls are fairly sticky like most NES games. They will not usually kill you but the difficulty will. Somewhat of a fun game, but nothing addictive nor real entertainment.

REPLAYABILITY (2/10): It's a filler game. You will likely never play to beat it, and you will only pick it up for a quick ten minute play through for some fun. You really will never get into it, to start consistantly replaying it.

DIFFICULTY (1/5): Like all classic NES games it is insanely difficult. You have trillions of enemies shooting at you, and you will be forced to shoot back and attempt to run over them. You won't last long as the game is huge and so are the enemies. Sorry, but you don't stand a chance.

OVERALL (37/100): The game really is not as bad as this review makes it look. It just isn't a great game. I do pick it up for a quick play now and then, and personally I think it is kinda depressing when you think of how few people have ever heard of the game. It's not great, but for a filler I prefer it to many others.

Rating: 3.7/10

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 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.
