The Addams Family is a highly entertaining game that plays as well - exactly as well - as it did on the SNES. Genesis owners who've never played the game will enjoy roaming through the Addams Mansion. Those who've seen it before might as well Lurch in the other direction.
Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn. In meinen Augen sind alle drei Versionen gleichermaßen gut gelungen. Das Spiel ist leicht zugänglich und nicht zu schwer, wenn nicht sogar ein wenig zu leicht. Es macht allerdings unheimlich viel Spaß, so dass jeder Addams-Fan wunschlos unglücklich mit dieser Software sein müsste, um es mal mit den Worten eines Addams auszudrücken. Wenn man wie ich ein Addams-Fan ist und die abnormal makabren sowie grotesken Sitten und Gebräuche dieser Sippe mag, dann hat man hier auf jeden Fall ein Zehn-Punkte-Spiel vorliegen. =) Da ich aber ein wenig objektiv beim Bewerten bleiben muss, werden tatsächlich nur neun Pixel-Heroes-Punkte auf das gut betuchte Addams-Konto gutgeschrieben, denn das Spiel entspricht sicherlich nicht jedermanns Geschmack.

Morticia is ontvoerd en Gomez moet op pad om haar te redden. Deze kruising tussen platformspel en adventure ziet er prima uit, laat zich goed besturen en zit vol inventieve raadsels.

Gomez saves the rest of the clan in what could have been a boring Mario clone. Instead, it's a not-bad, variety-filled game that's complex without being impossible.
Overall, Addams Family is a bland adventure that's not a bad purchase if you can find it cheap. Yes, there's a lot of exploration and hidden items, but the gameplay is nothing special. Moreover, when you've finished it and found everything there is, you most likely won't be coming back to it. Just watch the movies if you need more for your Addams fix. They are much more fun then playing this. Heck, even part three direct to video is more fun.
