Looks and plays well, but ultimately repetitive.
3-D WorldRunner is a game developed by Squaresoft in 1987. It is also supposedly the first Squaresoft game to be released outside of Japan. You, the WorldRunner, have been asked to help protect planet...
Breath of Fire II: Shimei no Ko
Vast improvement over the original, but somehow feels shorter.
Ahh Breath of Fire II, straight away from the start the setting and story promises much more than the original. The story starts with Ryu living in a small town with his father and sister. May I point...
Breath of Fire: Ryuu no Senshi
A fairly basic, but likable RPG.
Breath of Fire marks the start of a long-running series of RPGs, but what made it so popular is a bit of a mystery. The plot you see, starts off well enough: There are 2 clans of dragons, the light an...
Clichéd action storyline, but just makes it more fun to play.
Battle Clash is one of the better SNES games I've played in a while. There's something about it that just reeks of fun. It is about a young man named Mike who plans to destroy the evil Anubis as means...
Expected an average game, but was pleasantly surprised!
Batman Returns is not surprisingly based on the movie of the same name. The story involves The Penguin and the wealthy Max Shreck plotting to take over Gotham City, with occasional help from Catwoman....
A bit similar to Super Mario Kart, but less fun.
Battle Cars is a racing game for the SNES. There doesn't seem to be much of a plot to this game, other than youre trying to win the "Galactic Championship" or something. It is based in the future and ...
Um it was ok I guess. Remember though, ok is not good or great.
Battle Blaze is a beat-'em-up on the SNES. There is a tiny bit more plot to it than other games of the genre. It is the time of the year for a contest: The Contest of Champions, where warriors from ar...
Batman: Revenge of the Joker
No wonder this game was cancelled on the SNES.
Batman: Revenge of the Joker is a scrolling beat-'em-up that was cancelled on the SNES. With good reason too. The story behind it is simple enough, sort of. The Joker is out for revenge against Batman...
Ugh no real effort made at all. Or at least I hope so. That way I won't upset the people responsible if they're reading.
Batman Forever is loosely based on the movie of the same name. The story is that Two-Face and the Riddler are on a crime spree and Batman must stop them. The story may be more complex, but the game do...
Barbie: Vacation Adventure
Another Barbie adventure, slightly less boring than the last one...slightly...
Here we are, off on vacation with Barbie. Hooray...That's what this game is about. Barbie, on vacation, around the US. Sigh. Strictly, this is less a game, and more a small collection of mini-games. B...
Barbie: Super Model
Easy as pie, and very very short.
Why am I reviewing this you may ask? Because I am insane, and a completist, haha oh well. Anyway Barbie Super Model is a platform game I guess, released in 1993. The plot is very simple and might as w...
3 Jigen Kakuto: Ballz
I could say it is exactly as it says on the front of the box, but then that would be childish and immature.
Ballz, Ballz, Ballz, what can I say about Ballz? It is a beat-'em-up game released in 1995. There's not much in the way of plot, but from what I can surmise a group of 'people' (?) are fighting to def...
Space Funky B.O.B.
A game that shows promise, but fails to reach the mark.
It's been a while since I've written a review, so I might be a little rough around the edges, but here goes. B.O.B. is a platform shooter game involving an alien or robot or something called B.O.B. Th...
Air Management II
More of Aerobiz, but some more options and better laid out.
Aerobiz Supersonic cannot really be called a sequel to Aerobiz. It is more like a newer version. All they have done is added an emphasis to supersonic aircraft, heading into a theoretical future, and ...
Shoot-'em-up taken to the next level. Sort of.
Axelay is a great game from Konami. It is about a solar system named Illis that is being attacked by an unknown enemy. After a long conflict the only Illis ship left is Axelay. The player controls Axe...
Simple platformer that's quite fun to play.
Like "Asterix & Obelix", "Asterix" is a platformer from Infogrames. Again, it is based on the French comics of the same name. This time only Asterix is available to play as Obelix has been kidnapped b...
Asterix & Obelix
A platform game that is fun overall, but offers little new ideas to the genre.
Based on the French Asterix comics, this game is set during the reign of the Roman Empire, All of Gaul had been conquered apart from one little village that refused to submit to the will of Julius Cae...
Ryuuko no Ken
Some novel ideas that have been used since, but ultimately disappointing.
Art of Fighting is a Beat-'em-up made by famous developers SNK. It stars Ryo Sakazaki as the main character, also a main staple of SNK games like the 'The King of Fighters' series. In this game Ryo, a...
Arkanoid: Doh It Again
Arkanoid - The fun puzzle game with a slight environmental message!
Arkanoid: Doh It Again is a puzzle game. It continues from where the Arkanoid games on the NES left off. In the previous installments, Captain Therle and his crew left Earth in a bid to find a new pla...
A little known platformer released in the twilight of the SNES.
A platform game released towards the end of the 16 bit era, Ardy Lightfoot is a pleasing game. The plot is as follows: Ardy is a rodent-type creature with an appetite for exploring. While exploring...
Archer MacLean's Super Dropzone
Bah, a lot more effort could have put into this.
When I first switched this game on, I did not know what to expect from it. I had little idea what the game was even about. As it turns out, the game is just a slight revamp of an old game. Hence the "...
Midway Presents Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1
Six arcade classics - some you may know, some you may not.
Hmm...how to review this game. It is quite hard to rate these games when the standards have increased since these games had their heyday. This game is a compilation of 6 games - so-called arcade's gre...
A good, fun title that's defnitely worth a play!
I remember the Animaniacs as a cartoon on the TV when I was younger, but I didn't remember there being a game. I missed out as this is a really fun game! The plot is as follows: Pinky and the Brain st...
Andre Agassi Tennis
What? What?! Swing your racket you idiot!
I have this game for the Mega Drive and I thought I'd give the SNES version the once-over. I almost wish I hadn't. Firstly, being a tennis game, there is no plot. You choose one of the many players av...
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
A fun platformer that ultimately add nothing new to the genre.
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West loosely follows the storyline of the film as it spans across 5 short, simple levels. Fievel's family decide to move to the West after emigrating to America in the fi...
Varied, but extremely flawed.
American Gladiators...even the name would be enough to put most people off playing this game. It is for the most part as bad as you would think, but there are a few saving graces. Firstly, the graphic...
Aliens vs. Predator
Aliens! Predator! Sounds too good to be true!! Yes, it is...
I switched this game on with eager anticipation, hoping to get a nice beat-'em-up, and sadly I was a little disappointed. The plot to this game is very simple. Aliens have landed on either Earth, or a...
Better game than the movie?
I had this when I was a child. It was one of the first SNES games I had. I decided to play it again to see whether the game was as good as I remember, or whether it was my naive age that made me think...
Al Unser Jr.'s Road to the Top
Not what I thought it was to begin with...thank goodness!
When I first switched on this game and got to the start screen, I thought that the only thing you could do was have single goes at various courses and that was it. Luckily I then realised that the pra...
Looks more fun than it really is.
Air Cavalry...sadly a disappointment. It is a game that looked quite promising, but ended up only being slightly more than mediocre. The game is set in a general warzone. You can choose between the Mi...
Air Management: Oozora ni Kakeru
Aerobiz: The Airline Management Game! Better than it sounds, honest!
Firstly, let me say that this game is pretty much unique (apart from the sequel Aerobiz Supersonic). At least I think it is. I have never come across any Airline Management sims before. The plot is pr...
Card Master: Rimusaria no Fuuin
Arcana - The dungeon-crawler with a storyline!
Arcana Arcana Arcana, what can I say about this game? It has some good points and some bad points. Let me elaborate. Firstly, the story is about a boy named Rooks. It turns out his father was what is ...
Aero the Acro-Bat 2
The second in the Aero the Acro-Bat series!
This game is going to be hard to review without comnparing it to the original, so I'm just going to have to! Storywise the game continues straight off from where the first one ended. Aero had vanquish...
Aero The Acro-Bat
A fun platformer if you have patience.
When I first switched on Aero the Acro-Bat I thought "Oh no, not another repetitive platformer...". As I made my way through the first area of levels, the Circus ones, my suspicions were proving to be...
Great game, one of the best on the SNES!
"ActRaiser", a very popular game Gamespot says, and rightly so. If I can remember correctly, you are a god, but times aren't so great for you. The world is overrun with monsters and danger and you hav...
The Adventures of Batman & Robin
I'll stick my neck out and say this is one of the best platformers on the SNES!
For anyone who doesn't know who Batman is (shame on you!), he is a costumed vigilante who fights for justice! Justice like this game is to the Batman name! Do not get confused by the movie tie-in Bat...
A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol
"Air Strike Patrol": a shoot-'em-up in the vein of the Strike games, but sadly overlooked by the world.
"Air Strike Patrol" or "Desert Fighter" as it is known in some places is a shoot-'em-up in the same style as the Strike games ("Desert Strike", "Jungle Strike" etc.). The game takes place in a fiction...
The 7th Saga
A Hard RPG in two ways: Hard to get into, hard to beat. Worthwhile in the end? Possibly.
"The 7th Saga" is an turn-based RPG released in 1993. The story starts simple enough and without giving away anything I can say it starts as King Lemele chooses 7 adventurers to find 7 runes to use ag...
A fun, fast-paced vertical shoot-'em-up!
"Aero Fighters" (or Sonic Wings) is a shoot-'em-up plane game. There are a choice of various characters from around the world including the U.S.A., Britain, Japan, and strangely Sweden. Each character...
The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun
Quite fun, when you know what to do.
"The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun" is a adventure/problem-solving game. It follows the story of Hergé comic book of the same name, but also part of the previous book "The Seven Crystal B...
