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.
Even for its era the graphics and sound
are spartan. Although, the simplicity makes the game quicker. It can
be fun, especially considering it supports four gamepads. If you have
friends, this feature may make the NES version worth owning.
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.
