This Game Rocks!....NOT!

The Good

Wayne's World took a CBC/Saturday Night Live skit and turned it into not one, but two successful films that connected with teens coming of age in the early 1990's. If you were a "young adult" during this era, chances are you saw the films, loved the characters and eagerly awaited the chance to play the video game.

The Bad

Wayne's World is a unimaginative single-player, side-scrolling, platform game. This in itself is not a death sentence as many other games that fall under this tried and true genre can still be incredibly imaginative, even fun to play. Yet, their is nothing about this game that is particularly creative, fun or enjoyable. The game offers substandard graphics, sound, and music. The one liners get old fast, the hit detection is cheap and the control mechanics are far from perfect.

The Bottom Line

Wayne's World is not a good platform game and has almost nothing to do with the feature film. To be fair, creating a side-scrolling, platform game based on a goofy, low-brow, teen film was a bad idea to begin with. Yet, that only begs the question; Why couldn't the Wayne's World on the SNES be a funny, point n' click graphic adventure game? That is what the Wayne's World is on the DOS and its much better then this piece of trash.
