Pagemaster isn't bad, it just isn't as fun as it could've been. Younger gamers might enjoy this game the most, because the action's simple and the levels are relatively short. But with these controls, gamers are better off in the library.
Mega Fun
Spielerisch ist die Super Nintendo-Variante besser gelungen als das Mega Drive-Pendant, besonders die fairere Kollisionsabfrage und die präzisere Steuerung werten das Modul auf. Ebenso wurde die Grafik verbessert, was der Motivation natürlich zu Gute kommt.

I don't know whether to like this game or not. Pagemaster is pretty much just like any other action game, even though there are areas that utilize Mode 7. Oh yeah, the play mechanics, which take some time to get used to, are pretty cool. The sound is pretty decent. Aside from that, nothing in this game really jumps out at me. Don't get me wrong. I think the game is pretty good. It's just slightly above average for me.

Mäßige Jump&Run-Arbeit mit netten Ideen aber sehr gewöhnungsbedürftiger Steuerung, so könnte man die Pagemaster-Module in einem Satz beschreiben. Wir können nur hoffen, daß der Film besser wird als die drei vorab präsentierten Games.

Har du betalat över 700 pix får du väl se till att det används ett tag... Vårt tips är ändå att inte köpa alls.

While playing The Pagemaster, you'll appreciate the novel, Ray Bradburyesque theme and the wide assortment of literary nasties, but you'll wish there was more originality in the game play department.
