The graphics in Porky are worse than expected but are smooth nonetheless. The changing backgrounds that reset to different seasons after each restart are imaginative, but serve no practical purpose other than to simulate the player visually. The enemies fall into the semi-cheap category, having few mandatory hits while the Bosses are tough and take some imagination to beat. Porky is a fair game, but the character doesn't fall into the typical action hero category.
The Video Game Critic
Ironically the worst looking thing in the entire game is Porky himself, who appears somewhat pixelated. The music is pretty amazing and the digitized sound effects include Daffy Duck's maniacal laugh. The oversized bosses are memorable including Yosemite Sam and a Ghost in a top hat. Haunted Holiday is definitely on the easy side, but that just makes it all the more appealing. As my friend Chris remarked, "it makes you want to keep going!"
All Game Guide
This is a fun game, especially for the younger set. It's much too easy, though.
If you love a good platformer and can accept that this certainly isn't on par with many of the top tier Super NES platformers out there, then you might actually enjoy this release. It's a bit on the easy side, but it's got enough charm and personality to make it at least worthwhile. The control proves to be surprisingly good and how can you not love a video game that has Porky Pig in it. Especially one that tosses him into so many hilariously spooky situations. Of all the Looney Tunes releases on the Super Nintendo system, Porky Pig's Haunted Holiday is easily one of the better efforts and a game platformer fans might want to check out.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
There's nothing worth saying about Porky Pig, other than you'd be a stark raving lunatic to buy or rent it with so many superior platform games available or coming soon for the SNES.
