RoadBlasters for the NES is slightly easier than the arcade game because you don't seem to run out of fuel as fast. Even so, it has the same basic feel of the arcade game. It is a challenging contest that both veterans and beginners will enjoy.

Klingt ja reichlich destruktiv: Staubekämpfung per Großkaliber. Road Blasters ist aber kein Dumpfspiel, sondern ein ebenso originelles wie ansprechendes Actionmodul. Dieser Spielhallen-Evergreen wurde hervorragend aufs Nintendo Entertainment System umgesetzt. Die 3-D-Grafik, die perspektivisch auf Euch zugerauscht kommt, ist fließend. Alle Fahrzeuge und Hindernisse kann man rechtzeitig erkennen; auf der Straße ist genug Platz, um vernünftig zu manövrieren. Das Spiel wird außerdem niemals unfair. Die abwechslungsreichen Strecken und das reichhaltige Angebot an Extras verführen zu ausgiebigen Fahrten.
Power Play
Treffpunkt der Spieleantiquitäten: Die Autoballerei "Road Blasters" hat längst Klassikerstatus erreicht und auch das Nintendo Entertainment System gilt technisch als Veteran. Die beiden grauen Panther zeigen aber bei der neuen NES-Umsetzung von Road Blasters, was in ihnen steckt. Technisch und spielerisch läßt sie keine Wünsche offen und holt Erstaunliches aus der Hardware heraus.

This is pure fun, with the perfect blend of driving and shooting. Multiple landscapes, bonus incentives, and plenty of targets to interact with make RoadBlasters highly enjoyable.

I liked arcade Roadblasters a lot, but I'm afraid this Nintendo conversion is a b-i-g disappointment. It looks like Roadblasters (albeit with very fuzzy graphics), and it even sounds like Roadblasters (but without the speech). But it certainly doesn't play like Roadblasters. The original coin-op was challenging and addictive - this version certainly isn't. It's incredibly easy, and I finished the game on my second go with over 1,500,000 points! And once you've completed the game, there's nothing to draw you back to it.

As the grade says this isn't a terrible game, but it sure isn't great. If it was cheap and if you collect NES games, you may enjoy it for a little while. It's far from the worst available.
