Good review. I remember reading about this game in Nintendo Power and thinking it looked kickass, but I never could find it back in the day. And for some reason, I never played it via emulation once that became an option. I think I tried, but the initial primitive emulator I used before upgraded to OS X on my Mac didn't run it. I'll have to try again.

Thanks OD. This is one of my favorite NES side-scrollers. I used to rent it quite often as a kid, invite the friends over and play the crap out of it. Never did beat it then, but did so recently.

I don't think I've ever heard of this game before. If I did, it must have been in passing...

Good review, Joe. Always nice to read about something you've never knew existed until now.

Btw:

It's one offering sounds like a small one,

You meant "its", right?

I had posted a review for this game on the site a long time ago, but ultimately I removed the review and rewrote it for a "Graveyard" review when I wrote for Hardcore Gamer Magazine. It's a great game and I was excited to write that piece so that there'd be another record of its greatness in print.

Vice: Project Doom was on the cover of one of the early issues of "Nintendo Power" magazine that I got, and I still have it in a box somewhere. It always looked great, so around 7 or 8 years ago I bought it used at a game store and played through it the same night I bought it. I was thoroughly impressed by how well it hold up as a high-quality mix of some of the great games of its era. Definitely it's one of the NES system's oft-overlooked gems.

I'm glad that you reviewed it, Joe, and brought more attention to a game that definitely deserves it.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Thank you, Jason. I agree that this game deserves more attention. It's one I also failed to list on my recent Virtual Console topic. Of course, there are a bunch others I wouldn't mind seeing on there (Kick Master, Mendel Palace, etc.).

This is a fucking awesome review, your best of the ones I've read -- and I've read a lot.

Just the basic movement feels smoother, like Hart is a vibrant kind of dude, physically active, straightedge, hits the weights, eats his fiber. It doesn't stop there.

Full of win.

Thank you! I had a hard time writing this one at first. I pretty much sat there slack-jawed for an entire night before an intro came to me.
