A licensed Disney classic that doesn't suck
From 1994-1997, Disney's Emmy-winning animated series "Gargoyles" was short-lived after 3 hard seasons. But fans and critics will be remembered when it was one of the greatest TV shows of the '90s. The video game of the same name as the TV show was a true Genesis classic. In the game, you play as the heroic Gargoyle, Goliath, as he must destroy the most powerful weapon ever, the Eye of Odin (the same weapon used in God of War: Ghost of Sparta). But Goliath must go through the evil Gargoyle who hates humans, Demona and save the world from total destruction. Although there's no characters in the game. No Elisa Maza, Xanatos, Brooklyn, Hudson, Bronx, Lexington, or Broadway. Just the two main characters that reflects the origins of the TV series. Incredible gameplay, a mix-up between beat 'em ups and side-scrolling 2-D platforming excitement, and a CGI-inspired designs to make the characters even more virtual hand-drawn work, this is the game you still must own.
I'm really disappointed that the game was supposed to be on the Super NES after its Genesis release, but was immediately scrapped. I also thought it was going to be released on the Playstation One. but they didn't planned it.
The Bottom Line
If you still watch reruns of the Gargoyles TV series (on Disney XD) or watch it on DVD or Youtube, I really suggest fans to enjoy playing "Gargoyles" on the Genesis. It wasn't a disappointment, but I'm still always be a Gargoylemaniac. I hope someday soon Disney could put Gargoyles into a live-action movie, a reboot of the series, or just bring the old series back.
