M.U.L.E. on the NES is a tough sell in today's society, especially with Alpha Colony: A Tribute to M.U.L.E. (hopefully) headed to PC and Mac. It's not much to look at and the game could do a better job telling you what's going on, but this is a genuine classic. This is one of the few board game-style products worth buying on your Nintendo Entertainment System.
It takes a while to appreciate all of M.U.L.E.'s complexities, but once you finally "get it", you'll be hooked! My only complaint is waiting for those auction timers to run out - man those things are slow. Otherwise M.U.L.E. is a fascinating and competitive strategy title.
Wacky alien species, an otherworldly, if slightly boring planet, and robotic mules aside, Mule is just a bland farming sim set in space. Nobody should get their jollies from such a genre.
