Sho says: "From the moment that you press down on those aging springs and lock that smooth grey cartridge into the fiendishly designed depths of your Nintendo Entertainment System, youíll surely recognize that you are now Playing With Power."

Duck Hunt review

Reviewed September 16, 2005

goldenvortex says: "I hate hunting. I donít see the point of walking through the woods all day with your 12-gauge, shooting innocent animals for pure sport. If youíre going out shooting ducks because you think itís fun is a little sadistic for my liking, if it was for survival purposes then it wouldnít bother me but the fact of killing an animal just for a thrill is a little primitive.

Duck Hunt review

Reviewed November 01, 2003

retro says: "The first game I ever owned for the NES was the 8-bit cartridge that had two of the most memorable games for the system on it, Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt. One of the two games revolutionized and possibly even saved the video game industry, while the other was pretty much a lowly tag along. The latter is Duck Hunt, the first game to ever utilize the most popular NES accessory, the light gun. "

Duck Hunt review

Review date unknown

royalranger says: "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! "
