Didn't really provide much competition for the Megaman series as far as sales go, but it still does provide competition as far as gameplay goes. A great game for anyone who's a fan of Megaman games or platform games for that matter. I highly recommend this game to anyone who owns an NES.
Mean Machines
The wealth of power-ups add a lot to the action, as does the maze-like structure of the complex, meaning you have to find a route through instead of just walking left to right. Power Blade is a fun game which sensible NES owners should sally forth and purchase at the earliest opportunity.

Joda, det ble mange timer med dette spillet til tross for at jeg rundet det utallige ganger. Dette spillet vil jeg anbefale til alle som er nysgjerrige på NES-spill.

The bottom line is this: Power Blade is one the better action games there is for the NES. I'm really surprised it never gained the popularity of the other series (then again, it was released at a time when 16-bit systems were gaining grounds.) Still, any side-scroller fan owns it to themself to pick up this game and have fun.

The sectors surrounding the Control Center are equally challenging to compete. You can either them in any order. If one Sector is giving you trouble, move on to another and return when you have better weapons.

Alle Gegner sind fair platziert, jeder Level ist auf kurz oder lang mit Hilfe des Paßwortsystems lösbar. Das Level-Design ist abwechslungsreich, Langeweile kommt so schnell nicht auf. Powerblade sei allen Leuten empfohlen, die Spiele wie mega Man mögen oder kompetent ins Actionsgenre reinschnuppern wollen.

Fans der Mega Man Serie und von anderen Genre Vertretern sei Power Blade aber trotz der oben aufgezählten Schwächen im direkten Vergleich ans Herz gelegt: Der Titel aus dem Hause Taito ist ein echter Geheimtipp und lädt immer wieder mal für ein kurzes Durchspielen ein!

An sich bietet Power Blade nichts Neues. Viel Action mit leichten Adventureeinschlag, passable Grafik und netter Sound verbinden sich zu einem recht durchschnittlichen Spielerlebnis. Wer jedoch Spiele dieser Machart mag, wird mit Power Blade so manche kurzweilige Stunde verbringen...
