Metroid: Zero Mission
A beefed-up remake of the original Metroid with extra levels, items, and bosses. Count me in.
Story: The basic story of the original Metroid game, remade and expanded upon. The mischevious Space Pirates bust into a peaceful research lab and turn the place upside down killing the scientists a...
Rock 'N Roll Racing
Twisted Metal meets Mario Kart - this is one GREAT racing game.
Storyline: This is an intergallactic racing league which takes place on several different planets. Playable characters include Jake Badlands, Fleagull, Tarquin, Katarina, Cyberhawk, and Snake Sander...
Point and click sci-fi with RPG elements.
For New Years I picked up an SNES at the local game trade store. Since then I've been compiling as many cool old games as possible. And I've started quite the little collection! I like to check out...
Dark, creepy, scary, lonely, demented - what's not to like!!?
Story: Harry Carson and his daughter Cheryl head to Silent Hill for vacation, only to end up in a horrific car accident. You wake up in a daze (presumably with a concussion) only to find Cheryl has ...
Chrono Cross (PSOne Books)
It ain't Chrono Trigger, but it'll do.
Story: This is the sequel to the arguably best RPG of all-time, Chrono Trigger (SNES). Chrono Cross takes place 10 years after the events of the former. The character looks remarkably similar to...
Chrono Trigger is NOT the best RPG I've ever played, it's the best VIDEO GAME i've ever played. Hell yeah!
Story: The main character's name is Crono (correct spelling). The game instantly draws you in when you attend the Millenial Fair to meet some neighborhood pals. When Crono's friend Lucca demonstrat...
Played it & beat it recently on the SNES console itself. Solid side-scroller with nice graphics.
Gameplay: Skyblazer is an old SNES side-scroller from a relatively underachieving (at the time) game maker - Sony. Most of their other SNES games pretty much suck, but Skyblazer is actually worth a ...
A mediocre, very strange journey.
Gameplay: Super Bonk is a not-so-well-known side scrolling platformer made in 1994 by Hudson Soft for the Super Nintendo. You are a dude with a huge bald head so I naturally thought you would get to...
Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyuushutsu Emaki
Story: You are a dude named Kid Yang. I think the basic premise is just to rescue the princess from evil. Wow - that is a deep story line. You have some sort of mentor (Goemon or Dr. Ying as he's ...
X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse
Wow! Underrated game. X-Men Mutant Apocalypse is one of the best games on the SNES period.
Gameplay: This is a very fun 1-player side scrolling beat 'em up. You get to play as Wolverine, Cyclops, Beast, Gambit, and Psylocke. Each character operates in a different stage from the others. ...
Super Donkey Kong
16 years later... this is still one of the best games around.
Storyline: A very large pirate boss dude has stolen all the bananas in the land. Oh no you didn't !! Take the helm with not one, but two playable primate characters - Donkey Kong and his little sid...
Mother 2: Gyiyg no Gyakushuu
I just couldn't get into it. Great storyline and outstanding character development meets lame 'battle' sequences.
Storyline: Aliens called the Giygas have covertly invaded the Earth and everyone is acting really weird. It's up to this rag-a-muffin band of elementary school kids to save the world. Excellent sto...
The Lion King
Superb music and graphics meets absurdly difficult game play - welcome to hammer-fist city.
Storyline: You are Simba and your father is King Mufasa. Simba loves to go on adventures and roam around, but he's too young so Mufasa doesn't let him explore. Eventually evil uncle Scar murders Ki...
Knights of the Round
Totally mindless but still kind of fun i guess.
I picked up Knights of the Round because I noticed this title on multiple top-50 SNES lists. I can't agree with that high of a ranking but it's a decent game anyway. ( Got it for $12.99 ) It is the...
The Lost Vikings
Lost Vikings SNES isn't a bad game, but even the multi-player option is a little bit dry in my opinion.
Storyline: 3 Viking warriors go out hunting one day, but they never return to their wives in the village. Turns out they got sucked into space... Gameplay: Lost Vikings is a 2-d action/platfor...
Super Star Wars
Creative - not really.<br /> Fun - most definitely.
Story: It's Star Wars, are you even reading this section !? The game follows the first movie pretty well. Gameplay: Classic side-scrolling action. You get a blaster AND a lightsaber so it doesn...
Most people have never even heard of Soul Blazer, but this is one of the best games available on the Super Nintendo.
I just got this game in the mail for the SNES. A lot of people are playing these old games online for free, but I prefer to play them on the original console. I just started playing it last night so...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
Easily the best beat 'em up I've played for the Super Nintendo. <br /> Cowa-MF-bunga Beeeeotch.
Story: If you're familiar with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they should require no introduction. Raphael, Donatello, Michaelangelo, and Leonardo take to the streets to stop Shredder, Krang, and...
God Slayer: Haruka Tenkuu no Sonata
1990 action RPG game for the NES - and easily better than the original Zelda.
Story: At the beginning of the game your character emerges from the inside of a mountain where he has been dormant for ages, with no recollection of his existence. As the story unfolds you find out ...
Disney's Darkwing Duck
"Let's get dangerous." If you like NES games you will definitely enjoy Dark Wing Duck.
Story: Not much to it. This NES game is Dark Wing Duck, released by Capcom in good ol' 1992. This is one of the later games released for the original Nintendo. Therein, the city is under seige b...
Harvest Moon 2 GBC
Simple, solid farming simulation game.
Story: It's a game about farming. The mayor of the town is ready to close down the farm, and in it's place build a new amusement park. At the last moment your character emerges to save the day. Th...
Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari
With a friend, this game is beyond fun.
Story: You play the role of 2 high school street thugs, whose girlfriends have been kidnapped by a local boss. Simply kick ass until the babes are back in your arms. Gameplay: This is one of the...
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
Simply one of the most entertaining and unforgetable gaming experiences of all-time.
Story: I had this NES game as a kid back in the day, I'd say '87 or '88. Mine was the one with Mike Tyson as the final boss, I hate that stupid Mr. Dream rip-off game. Back then Mike Tyson was a bi...
This game is loaded with nostalgia and good memories. Otherwise it would just be a difficult and average platformer.
Story: This is Ninja Gaiden, the original game released for the Nintendo (NES) in 1989. For the record I played and beat this game using an FCEUX ROM. The story is the classic ninja conflict - aven...
Wow - most likely the best game you've never played.
Story: Shatterhand isn't a game that revolves around plot/storyline, but I know the main character has some sort of implants in his hands that allows him to control powerful cybernetic weapon attachm...
46 Okunen Monogatari - Harukanaru Eden e
"Mysterious time passes over you..." <br /> This is one of the most unique games ever.
Story: E.V.O. The Search for Eden is another awesome RPG by Enix for the Super Nintendo console. I will be reviewing the Zsnes rom version of the game, as opposed to the actual SNES console version....
Nothing new but hey it's Castlevania - these games are just fun to play. But it's not exactly the cream of the crop.
Castlevania Bloodlines is a classic Castlevania platformer but it wasn't released on the Nintendo consoles, it's the Sega Genesis version. But it's still done by Konami who just knew how to make real...
Muscle Bomber: The Body Explosion
This game is absurdly fun, especially with a couple homies.
Story: Saturday Night Slam Masters is a professional wrestling game with fictional characters. There is somewhere around 10 characters including Haggar, Stinger, Titan, Biff, Jumbo, and Scorp. Ga...
Tecmo Super NBA Basketball
You no rikey ??
I almost didn't get this game because of the horrible reviews people have given it. Thank my god-ness that I went out on a 4-dollar limb, because this is a super fun NBA game with all the old legends...
Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce
Beautifully rendered graphics and sound fx. Best Zelda ever.
Story: It's Zelda, you know the story. Actually, this time the evil Wizard Aganhim has kidnapped the Princess and transported her to another dimension. A dark world has opened portals into the ligh...
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
My very first video game other than Mario/Duck Hunt.
I'm not quite sure why more people don't remember this as one of the best Zelda games ever. It is classic Zelda but it's the only one in the series that is a platform side scrolling game which I'm a ...
Fast and easy just like I like 'em ;)
Story: It follows the Aladdin movie quite well. Defeat the evil Jaffar and re-claim the magic lamp! He is using it for evil and targeting the beautiful Princess Jasmine. 8/10. Gameplay: This g...
I don't even like plane games, but UN Squadron is AWESOME!
Story: Honestly I'm not too sure about the story, or if there is one at all. That isn't what makes this game so great anyway. But I will go out on a limb and say it seems to be an invasion against...
Whip it, into shape... This is the 4th Castlevania game that I've beaten and easily the best one.
Story: Count Dracula is somehow not dead yet (afterall he IS a vampire - they're hard to kill okay?) You take the helm as Simon Belmont, who comes from a long bloodline of vampire hunters. Gamepl...
Shadow of the Colossus
Cool at first but repetitive
Don't get me wrong, the way I score games, a 7.5 is still fun. But Shadow of the Colossus just wasn't exactly my flavor. You are a warrior who loses the love of your life. There she lays from t...
Akumajou Special: Boku Dracula-Kun
Castlevania meets Mario
(I'm the first Kid Dracula review!!? Cool.... where you at CORBIE?) Story: This is a comical spoof about Castlevania. It's even made by the same company, Konami. Gameplay: You are Kid Dracul...
Unique game but overrated. Great action stages meet repetitive town-building sequences.
I have read the reviews and heard all the hype about Actraiser. Most hardcore old-school gamers have this game ranked as one of their top SNES games of all time. So I went out on a limb and ordered ...
Super Mario Bros. 3
One of the best Mario games ever
This game for the NES returns to a more normal Mario format where you are collecting coins again and jumping on enemies to kill them. Fire power is back, along with some new suits such as the frog su...
