Though Brain Dead 13 is not what you would call a thinking man's game, it is a heck of a lot of fun. Purists may complain that the graphics sometimes get pixelated (due to the video compression) and there are a few loading pauses, but Brain Dead 13 is well worth checking out. Who knows, it may even give you some good ideas on how to take over the world.
The PC edition of Dragon's Lair is a more fluid, more enjoyable laser disc translation. It's the game fans of this genre should grab. Consider taking Brain Dead 13 for a spin only if you've already memorized the classics, or want to play this type of game on the consoles.
Sounds and graphics are disappointing. The scenes and characters are colorful, but bad compression leaves objects blurry or ill-defined. Voices are sometime unintelligible and the frantic music gets old because you hear it hundreds of times while trying to master the controls. Play Braindead 13 and you'll be brain-dead before long.
