So, If you guys can think of any specific games from these console eras that you'd like me to give a spin and my take on, or if you'd just like to see any game in general from one of these certain consoles, give me a shout in the comments below, I'll post my results the first chance I get!
(One, Two! Kung-Fu!)
There are many versions of this game, Including one that was released in 2007 on the 360, every game is slightly different from the last console version, by different I state that each game either has a different hero, opponents, or just secret characters that the other console does not, the (J-MSX) is a console known for punishing games, or as you've seen from my past article? Horrible ones, this game is no different! However there is a mini-back story to anyone who wants to look up the game, you play as the MSX port hero 'Lee', he has to battle five Grand Masters in this port storyline, for honor for not only himself, but his father! Course I wasn't able to beat Chen, so sadly I won't be able to post all of the bosses looks, but if you decide to try this game out in the end, maybe you can get a little farther and show me what they look like? Of course your journey is going to be weathered by some of these faults i'll list below!
You know those times in a game when you could've sworn you had the computer beat, but somehow they just rise up and open a can of worms on your victory parade? Yeah, this is one of those games! The NPC can hit you from ridiculous ranges away, but if you get up right in their face and show them your Bruce Lee moves? Won't do you a squat bit of good, your blows won't land and they'll most likely unleash a combo that turns you from Champ to Chump within seconds.
From the ninja stars, to fireballs, to this guy here with a really long chain? You get absolutely nothing to toss back at these guys, the best you can hope for is being able to time your hit just right to knock away their weapon, but even that's a 50/50 shot when you connect, you can always jump over the weapon as an alternative, but the game likes to mistake your jump button with the high kick action, so all you can do is pray you land some decent shots to finish the match before they can spam you with it.
(Hint to the question below: It's not them.)
In other games this wouldn't be considered cheating, but the fact that the only people that can counter attacks is the bosses, I find this highly unfair to the player, more so when the bosses already have so many other advantages over our hero, If you throw a kick and that kick lands with the bosses can you guess who gets the damage out of that?
That's right, If countering/projectiles weren't enough? You get in close to these bad mother lovers and they'll do an extreme number on your face, the only one I had the miss fortune to see was actually Wang's, he does a sweep kick which causes you to fly into the air only to be smacked down again by his giant pole he swings around.
In my honest opinion, this game is not for everyone and I wouldn't exactly push nostalgic players into the path of this destructive game, however there are a lot of people that like games that will stack the odds extremely high against them, so this could be a hit/miss depending what kind of person you are, If you're the kind of person that likes these kinds of games that toss you on your butt and kick you while you're down? I'd say go for it, absolutely 100%!
(Oh the humanity!)
For those of you who enjoy feeling powerful, or roaring like a girl scout with your battle cries while ripping your enemies limb from limb, this game is not for you and will be an assured pass! As always, thanks for reading and leave your thoughts in the comments below!
(You mock me with your MS paint made rocket!)
Oh, Space Camp... How your cold shuttering gates have always flapped closed in my face just before I was able to apply to any such field trip to your base of operations, thanks to the MSX made in 1983! I finally got my shot at Space Camp!
(It's not going to take you long to figure out why this game stinks so badly..)
So, this is what they considered Space Camp to be like back in the 80's of Japan, It's basically about dodging what looks to be giant red meatballs, In a spaceship that was obviously ripped from RD-D2, that blue thing there? Yeah, that's not an energy boost, some cool weapon, or a shield. It's just some random looking alien glyph that will indeed (can you guess it?) kill you with one little touch, or even just an area within range.
Yeah, this thing? It's not a giant epic boss, or some HQ mother ship where you get to find out the whole plot to this horrid insanity, nope! Cause that'd just be too easy, this is just another giant object that fills 70% of the screen that has a 50/50 shot of killing you within one hit, or just phasing through you as if it was never there in the first place.
That giant ship wasn't even the best part! Oh, no-no-no! See that red flame there? That's what's left of my ship after a black hole has warped it into the black abyss, that's right! I said it, a black hole on what is already the darkest backdrop i've ever seen in a game, trust me! This game is littered with the black holes, you get about three lives and every time you die? Yep, It's one of those games... You start back on level 1, this game is all about dodging what you cannot see.
So all-in-all, this is 110% the biggest pass i've ever given on a game, It's like showing cake to a fat kid and then promptly pulling it away, only to replace that delicious said cake with what can only be described as 'Tofu', whoever took the five minutes out of their day to create this horrible tragedy? You're a sick individual, good day!
(As always, thanks for reading!)
