What Gamespot Users have to say about Home Alone

  • User Rating:10

    An emotionally captivating and hilariously fun game!

    Home Alone is one of the best video games ever. First off, the gameplay owns. I LOVE how each level in the game has you wandering around the same house, yet it feels so different every time. Also, the bosses totally own.... Read Full Review

    This is an offense to the Home Alone movies, and a total Genesis screw up.

    The good: setting traps is fun, 5 different houses including Kevin's, decent graphics The bad: You run out of traps, control is screwed, running out of time beats the game, music is rediculous, Harry and Marve go in ran... Read Full Review

    Terrible...just terrible.

    I do not remember how I got this game, but I do remember when I got this though. I think it was 6 years ago. I also remember that I only played the sequel first: Home Alone 2, before I came across this game. That sort of... Read Full Review

    A shallow game and a waste of time.

    Back in 1990 there was a little movie called Home Alone, which if memory serves me right, was the big holiday film of that year. It catapulted to the top of the box office and took with it a young Macaulay Culkin who was... Read Full Review

    Sad. Just really, really sad.

    Story: Umm, okay I guess the story is about a little boy who calls the cops because of robbers are in his house, and it takes 20 minutes for the cops to get there. So along the way, you have to set traps to slow down th... Read Full Review

    There are worse games on the Sega Master System.<br />

    Yeah, I know what you're thinking. And I agree. But imagine for a moment that this is NOT based on the movie and that it's just a platform game and it's not all that bad. However, the inconsistencies regarding the game i... Read Full Review

    Come on, it's not THAT bad! ...It's pretty good, actually, especially compared to the other Home Alone games.

    Okay, after the epic disgusting that was Home Alone on NES and SNES....I'm sure nobody who has played this has had very high expectations for it. But seriously, this is a MUCH better game than either version. In all hone... Read Full Review
