The Jetsons: Cogswell's Caper (NES)

The Jetsons: Cogswell's Caper review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Sometimes, you can't help but wonder what goes through the minds of game companies as they produce video games like this. What impelled Taito to release another cartoon-based game is beyond me; and with their 1992 release of The Jetsons: Cogswell's Caper, they obviously hadn't learned their lesson from their previous cartoon-game release, The Flintstones. Also considering the release at such a late year, Taito must have had a screw loose when deciding to make a NES game like The...
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (NES)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

It's time for another RoyalRanger review, and this means it is time to comment on one of the worst NES games ever to be played. Yes, Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde is truly a horrible game, despite what they say about it... no, wait... they do say it's a horrible game (I must really be tired or something). Anyway, Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde is truly a horrible game (Wait a second, didn't I already say that? I know I've been experiencing déjà vu a lot lately. I know I've been experiencing déjà vu a lot lat...
Tetris 2 (NES)

Tetris 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I'm sure that by now, you've had to have heard of the great game called ''Tetris,'' a Russian puzzle game universally introduced when Tengen released it illegally for the NES and universally accepted as a smash hit when Nintendo released it legally for the same system. With the great success of Tetris, both on the NES and on the GameBoy, several sequels and similar games were released, including great games like Dr. Mario and Tetris Attack. Tetris 2 was another Tetris...
Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Metroid, often considered one of the great classics of video gaming, is a game that I really did not like very much. Now, please, before you go whacking me with that baseball bat there, I only ask that you at least hear me out on this! Giving Metroid a low score isn't some deliberate way of trying to ruffle a few feathers or draw attention to myself, but I really do have valid concerns judging my dislike of this game.
Kirby's Adventure (NES)

Kirby's Adventure review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Hal Laboratories and Nintendo manage to make one of their last-released NES games to be one of their greatest. It's actually not of much surprise, really, since Shigeru Miyamoto, the great mastermind behind the Mario and Zelda game series, had his hand in the making of Kirby's Adventure as well. The release of this game was sure to be a bang, regardless of its late 1993 release.
River City Ransom (NES)

River City Ransom review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Technos Japan practically set the foundation for future video game brawlers. They are credited as developers of the Double Dragon games, as well as Super Dodge Ball, which isn't exactly a brawler but may make you want to beat up your opponent when you lose to them during a two-player match. Among their limited library of games is River City Ransom, Technos' very own blend combining the elements of RPGs, brawlers, and mini-malls.
Bubble Bobble (NES)

Bubble Bobble review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Every once in a while, there comes a game that becomes an instant classic. Games like this last for years without dying down as they are enjoyed by people of all different ages. Bubble Bobble turned out to be one of these games. Taito originally released this legend as an arcade game in 1986. Due to its increasing popularity, Bubble Bobble was later released on many different computers and systems, including the NES. While the NES port suffers in a few areas, it still deserves a hi...
Slalom (NES)

Slalom review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Slalom is a perfect example of the types of games that dominated many people's time nearly two decades ago. Simple concept with little-to-no logic or design was all the rage. It was the NES that began the era of many well-designed and very entertaining games. But, as with every system, the NES wasn't without its weak points. And that's what brings me to review the game of Slalom, undeniably one of the NES' weak points.
Paperboy (NES)

Paperboy review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Who would have ever thought that such a simple, childhood job could become so dangerous? Indiana Jones never had to evade tornadoes that were following him! James Bond never had to deliver papers to the Grim Reaper! I cannot imagine what this paperboy would give to rescue a princess from a fire-breathing dragon instead of doing... this!
Monopoly (NES)

Monopoly review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The NES game of Monopoly is based on Parker Brother's classic real estate trading board game of the same name. Released in 1991 by, of course, Parker Brothers, Monopoly successfully makes its transfer into the video gaming world. With other Monopoly video game ventures ahead of them, Parker Brother starts out with a bang in this video game port of their highly successful board game.
Spider-Man (Nintendo 64)

Spider-Man review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

It's amazing how long Activision has been in business, and now they're out with a great new game for the N64. Spider-Man 64, based on the Marvel Comics superhero, provides an edge-of-your-seat gaming experience the first few times you pop the cartridge into the system, making any Spidey fan bound to love this game.
Fire 'N Ice (NES)

Fire 'N Ice review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Hello, once again, and welcome to another review by yours truly, RoyalRanger, here to give you an honest opinion on the late but great 1993 Tecmo game, Fire 'n Ice. In light of the differences of opinion of games, evident between different gamers, I have decided to bring in a professional game character, Error (From Zelda 2), in here to co-author the review, providing their perspective at a few intervals during my review writing.
Super C (NES)

Super C review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Super C, short for Super Contra, was Konami's sequel to their great NES masterpiece, Contra. While this game stepped up graphically from Contra, unfortunately, it did dip just a little bit in design, but that's not too bad, since the game is still very good anyway. Heck, I bet Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs up! Errrr... that is if Siskel were still alive... and if they actually rated games. Whatever....

Jack Nicklaus' Greatest 18 Holes of Championship Golf (NES)

Jack Nicklaus' Greatest 18 Holes of Championship Golf review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

So many sports games found ways onto video game systems of all kinds. Surprisingly, one of the sports video games I hear about the most (though mostly on the older systems) and one of the sports video games I've most often played isn't football, baseball, or hockey -- it's golf! So when I had the chance to buy Jack Nicklaus Golf for under one dollar, I scooped it up as fast as I could and hoped for an excellent golfing experience, surpassing that of even one of the oldest NES golf games, ...
Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True (NES)

Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

After the release of the hit game Shadowgate for the NES, Kemco realized the potential there was in the point-and-click genre of games. With this new-found knowledge, Kemco sought to release yet another game of the same style. This led to the release of the game Déjà Vu, another masterpiece coded by Icom Simulations. This game, along with the few other point-and-click games by the same company, helped to open up the world of games where sly thought and keen observation is a must.
Circus Caper (NES)

Circus Caper review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Today, I take you to the wonderful world of Circus Caper. This is the place where maniac clowns do more than just honk their red noses at you. This is the place where something fishy always happens beyond the ring of giant elephants and angry lions. But it's even more than that... it's something sinister.
Boulder Dash (NES)

Boulder Dash review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Boulder Dash is a puzzle/action game that was designed, published, and released in 1990 with the involvement of First Star Software, Victor Musical Industries, and Data East Corporation (I really have absolutely no idea who the heck did what). Unfortunately, this game never did receive the proper recognition that it deserved very much. Why am I sitting here babbling? Anyway, read on and you'll see why I consider it a great game.
Maniac Mansion (NES)

Maniac Mansion review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Maniac Mansion was an Adventure/RPG game originally created by Lucasarts for the PC. This version had eventually become a hit, so the designers decided to port the game to the NES with the help of a publishing contract with Jaleco. Nintendo's strict game censorship forced Lucasarts to remove many items from the game, but they were lucky enough to still manage to finish a full version of Maniac Mansion for the NES.
Duck Hunt (NES)

Duck Hunt review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Imagine it's 1985. An open field... a gun... a tree... a dog... a laugh in the face... a live duck... now a dead duck... a flash of light. What do these things remind you of? Well, they all have to do with the game, Duck Hunt! If you haven't played this game yet, you had better jump up on the bandwagon of players who know what this classic game is all about!
