If you're expecting this Pony Canyon port to match Atari's offerings on the 5200 and 7800, you're in for a major letdown. The scrolling is incredibly choppy due in part to the low frame rate. In addition, the frantic pace has been slowed to a crawl, making it play more like a simulation than an in-your-face arcade action game. And the tremendous music and sound quality that was a trademark in prior versions of Ballblazer has been significantly watered down. Only die-hard NES and Famicom collectors will want this one.
