Drei Dinge braucht der lshido-Spieler: Kombinationsgabe. ein gutes Gedächtnis und eine Prise Glück. Listige Denkspiele, die solche Tugenden fordern, sind auf dem Meqa Drive noch viel zu selten. lshido ist ein “Spielt-man-immer-wieder-gerne-zwischendurch“-Dauerbrennermodul, das behagliche Gehirnmalträtier-Sessions garantiert. Sobald man die erst auf den zweiten Blick durchschaubaren Regeln intus und die ersten Strategien gestrickt hat, klappt das Steinchen-Ablegen wie geschmiert.
Power Play
Alles in allem eine schöne Umsetzung: Auch auf dem Mega Drive ist Ishido die Zierde jeder Sammlung anspruchsvoller Spiele.
Well, here it is: Ishido. This is one of the most boring games I have ever played, I have never had less motivation to play anything before in my life. I would personally prefer to rip out my brain stem, walk into the middle of the nearest four-way intersection and skip rope with it before playing this again. If you like torturing yourself with memories of mind numbing visits to your grandmother's house, then by all means play Ishido. There are no redeeming qualities to be found here; no background music, stupid sound effects, no special effects, bland board design, repetitive and tedious gameplay and a lack of excitement anywhere make this game not even worth a second glance. In fact, the only reason I gave Ishido a 1 is a) because I couldn't give it 0 and b) because the name is interesting. There are better menial time wasters for the Genesis; Columns comes to mind so go waste some time with that and don't waste your life with this.
