If you want to be like Mike try Chaos in the Windy City. The long and windy levels will guarantee that you'll want to stay for a while as a guest of Michael Jordan.

I'm a huge Jordan fan. Basketball's my favourite sport. I love the NBA. And, I have to Logo for Chaos in the Windy City admit, I really got off on this game. I had an immediate connection with it. I suspect though, that if you are not the biggest hoops fan in the universe, or if you think of Michael Jordan as a mascot for the NBA (in the same way as say, Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny represent Disney and Warner Brothers respectively), or if, for some reason, you have an intense hatred of Gatorade, chances are, you're not gonna dig this b-ball adventure.

Wenn man sich nur die Sprites von Michael anschaut so könnte man wirklich glauben, sie stammen aus einem hochklassigen “Basketball-Lustspiel“ wie beispielsweise NBA JAM. Aber bei der Steuerung verblaßt leider die anfängliche Euphorie. Sie ist teilweise ungenau (Michael stoppt nicht schnell genug) und umständlich. Wenn man sich aber erst einmal an sie gewöhnt hat (neben Jumps beherrscht unser Held Dunk-Shoots, die über eine Tastenkombination ausgelöst wird), läßt sich das Spiel rasant durchzocken. Schade jedoch, daß die Monstersprites, von denen mehr als ein Dutzend Arten in den Stages herumschwirren, nicht mehr so detailliert animiert wurden, Aber im großen und ganzen macht Jordan Adventure einen ordentlichen Eindruck.

What's up with all these basketball stars appearing in decidedly un b-ball games? Take out mutants with flaming basketballs and save your teammates. Right. MJ:CITWC features good graphics, control and music, but I feel these programmers were wasted on such a strange license.

If it had a little more nudge-nudge, wink-wink, we-know-it's-ridiculous sort of humor, it might have worked, but it's played pretty straight. Younger gamers who are big Michael Jordan fans (and after all, there are a lot of 'em) should enjoy it, but more experienced folks are gonna want to steer clear. Frankly, Michael deserves better.

I got really into Chaos in the Windy City. If you like Jordan, or you're really into platform games, you're going to have to give this a try. You might be just as surprised as I was.

Total! (Germany) (Jan, 1995)
Leider strotzen die 24 Level nicht gerade vor Abwechslung. Es gibt zu wenig verschiedene Gegner, keine herausfordernden Rätsel und auch nichts Spektakuläres. Trotzdem bereitet es durchaus Spaß, Feuerbälle zu ‚jammen‘, die vertrakten Level auf Kumpels abzusuchen und den einen oder anderen Bonusraum zu finden, Technisch wird Solides geboten, will heißen, die ordentliche Grafik scrollt sauber, und die Animation Airs gefällt gut. Nur Sound und Effekte sind unterdurchschnittlich. Fazit: Nicht umwerfend, aber allemal interessant und etwas anderes ...

I'd like to give my man Mike the benefit of the doubt, but i'd only be kidding myself if I claimed Chaos in Windy City was any good.
