Comments

Super Mario Kart - 92%

A superb piece of software which is let down only by its lack of one-player lasting appeal - solo players be warned. But for those with plenty of friends, this is an unmissable game.

Elite - 91%

A classic computer game makes the transition to the NES perfectly! A truly original game, Elite offers months of excitement packed gameplay.

Batman: Return of the Joker - 78%

A good game, which although slick and playable, achieves nothing new and so renders itself immediately obsolete.

Super Hunchback - 81%

A rather impressive, thoroughly polished but relatively simple platform romp. Certainly no hair-tugging challenge for master gamers, but full of humour and surprises to keep them happy, if not exactly stumped.

Rival Turf - 48%

A dull, uninspired and stupidly easy beat 'em up. It might feature two-player action, but other than that Final Fight beats the pants off it.

Final Fight - 92%

Possibly the best game of its kind on any console so far. The only superior beat 'em up is Streetfighter II.

Legend of Zela: A Link to the Past - 96%

The best adventure you can get for any console. It's the bees knees, the cat's whiskers. It's the donkey's armpits - it's Zelda 3.

Battletoads - 85%

With twelve big and varied levels to test your skills, Battletoads is a definite winner! Move over Turtles and make way for the new breed!

Blues Brothers, The - 40%

Blues Bros is unappealing in almost every department, for platforms junkies and movie buffs alike.
