Blaster Master should be an immediate buy for anyone who's even a casual fan of the Virtual Console, as it's the perfect example of what the VC can be when it's working right. It's an excellent, highly nostalgic game being made available again for the first time in over two decades. It's a game design that's actually better when it's played on Wii, thanks to the new save state feature. And it's even been enhanced for this re-release through the inclusion of a new bit of bonus material at the end, for those intrepid subterranean explorers who'll be focused enough to finish the quest -- all the best elements of a VC release, combined together in one five-dollar download.

We saw a lot of legendary titles come out of the 8-bit era of gaming, but probably none quite as ahead of its time as Blaster Master. The game combined so many different gameplay ideas into one amazing adventure that offered up more playability than probably any other title of its kind at that time. There was platforming, exploration, and enough shooting action to keep even the most finicky game fan glued to the television screen.

"Blaster Master" ist ein anspruchsvoller Mix aus den zwei unterschiedlichen Perspektiven, die euch die geballte Ladung an Schieß- und Sprungelementen bieten, die ein NES-Klassiker auf dem Kasten haben sollte. Blöd nur, dass das Gameplay zwar die Motivation bis hinter die ersten Level trägt, ihr nach dem mehrmaligen Verlust eurer Leben aber komplett von vorne beginnen müsst. Natürlich ist das für ein NES-Spiel nicht ungewöhnlich, aber auf Grund der komplexen und anspruchsvollen Stages, des weitläufigen Erforschens und des Backtrackings, ist dies schon harter Tobak, der nichts für lockere Gelegenheitszocker ist.
