Beautifully designed. Cool engaging story that contain no dialogue but some impressive sound effects. I liked especially the laser pistol that did not only shoot "Star Wars" like laser-beams but also could make a force field. Unfortunately I never got past a kind-of futuristic gladiator battle where I was stuck in a tank-like machine. It always ended badly but I have fond memories of this one that I think was one of the first modern interactive games with a movie-like feel.
Level 573 finished and level 173 with that stupid owl- Will this addiction ever stop? Yes. Now I'm fed up with it. Easiest game to play when one is waiting for someone 5 minutes but now I want to find something that actually --- ends...
Engrossing story where one either see the Russian side or the Allied side win a strategic war between armies.
The Russian story was to me more interesting and had a hotter woman in the cut scenes so I finished that one, but the American one was mostly two boring men talking. The levels were cool put together and one of the few of this type I have actually liked.
The cutscenes were interesting for me as there were a couple of cult actors in it: John Rhys-Davies and Musetta Vander but they were boringly executed. There were nothing wrong with it's game value as one built and tried to have different strategies in order to win battles over rivaling houses who fought over the spices. The problem here was the fact that I didn't have the time or interest to really sit through it and play hours and hours in order to finish one level. Actually this isn't my type of game and that is this game's biggest problem.
Ghostbusters were fun to play when catching ghosts that were flying around buildings, but the Marsmallow Man was pretty useless and annoying stomping around everywhere and the game was pretty much just the same level repeated all over. The laughable driving sequences where I drove around in the streets (alone with no other cars) and just vacuum cleaned ghosts were pointless. It felt like it just went on and on untill one probably earned enough money and it would finish itself, but I never decided to let the game keep my interest so it was never finished. I still like it for its nostalgic power but that is all basically.
This game has an excellent premise about a man driving up and down in elevators to different platforms where he has to jump to get to special items that he has to "search / download" for items that he needs in order to fullfill the game. All items has to be found. It is fun stuff but I usually ended up falling down to my doom close to the end and had to start all over again. That was also extremly frustrating and I have never seen to finishing it - and probably never will.
Actually I like the characters in this game but it is frustratingly annoying when one has to go back and forth, back and forth through labyrinths and the same places because the fox forgot to say something even though I know the answer to the clue myself without needing INSTRUCTIONS. Frustrating is also that the commands are not flexible enough so that if you choose the wrong command even if it is remotely close I get nowhere. Then the game crashed when I got through to the forest and I will never again play it. Will watch a walkthrough on youtube to get it out of my system and that's that
It looks beautiful at first glance and seems to be an engaging little point-and-click gamer in a fantasy world with magic and sword battles. I get started in a prison though which is engaging enough start and I escape fast from this area to find a little village where most of the story takes place. The point is to finally get into a castle and stop an evil sorceress, but I lost fast interest in finishing this game as too much of the time went to talking to unfunny characters and roaming the streets after a tiny clue or dialogue that will get me further along in the story. The village itself was also uinspiring to walk in so this is one of the few adventure games that I never finished – and most certainly never will.
This game had good graphics as it was similar to the TV show (though not as detailed of course) and had fun varied levels where Bart had to go through the streets of Springfield, Krusty's circus and the town museum (where I got lost several times and finally had to end the game!). It was probably one of the better licended games from a TV show out there. You could also see aliens through sunglasses (like in "They Live") which was cool, but Bart was terrible to control and I hated the use of a timer as I like to use long time and explore my levels. So...in the end a mixed affair for me.
I think I ended somewhere during the fourth film and I got fed up by the need of the accuracy, precision and timing as I didn't have the time to sit through it all. I did like the idea of making stunts and putting them into a film but as one was so forced by the "script" and there was little room for improvisation I felt the entertainment value went to hell. The controls of the vehicles was also a lot to be desired.
I think I never got pass that damn dam level where the turtles had to defuse bombs under water. I guess I didn't react to good with the time pressure and I personally dislike that level. It was nice that one had different turtles and weapons and manage to get that across but to be honest it was just two of them that was controllable in fights. The levels seemed to be pretty similar all around though and I got bored pretty fast by it.
Is it even possible to finish this game? It seems to go never-ending or getting so impossible that it the only way to complete this is to compete against other games on points. It is addictive but also un-fullfilling game as I want a game that it is possible to win over. But fun it is - in small doses.
The flying itself was simple and the shooting down of planes laughable easy and quick to do, but I remember that the landing was more of a fluke project. Could be that I just were too young at the time as well, because this game is ages since I played and borrowed (I never owned it which may be the reason why I never finished it in the first place - I had to give it back). I think I finished the first three levels before getting stuck.
Always came to the end of level 4 where there was a villain that was so hard I gave up. it wasn't any easier to complete the levels either that had sometimes some terribly hard jumps or traps that made it almost unrealistic to go through them without losing at least one life. After rewatching a walkthrough on youtube and seeing that terrible end creditsequence where the werewolf wraps himself with the U.S. flag I will never end this game.
I like the concept, the hero and designs but terrible gameplay and confusing to navigate. I gave up already during the first level - a forest one where I ended up falling down from high places and never finding the correct doors. I gave up on it early because I have never ever controlled a worse knight in my life.
