Summary

Way cool.

The Good

One of the best games for early computers (read: 286), Budokan was one of the most popular games in Israel around 1991 and 1992. Seems as though everyone has it, and finally there's a version of a game which is actually just as good as its Amiga counterpart.

Budokan has great graphics, excellent controls and decent sound, but what's really good about is the sense of realism it gives the player, which is definitely something considering how old it is. The movements were realistic, the controls were realistic and battles were spectacular. Everything in this game is simply great.

The Bad

It's a little slow, but it runs on modest hardware so no complaint what so ever.

The Bottom Line

An amazing and original game. I wish I could play it with the same sense of wonder again.
