As exciting as the music gets, the stage design doesn’t let up either. Hallways are littered with chairs, ledges and tables to sprawl over, and there is the obligatory air vent to crawl through for the master thief. It’s a fun platformer that doesn’t take itself seriously, with its main let-down being the initial inaccessibility that may put some off.

Hudson Hawk is weer zo'n slecht filmspelletje. De hoofdpersoon, Hawk, reageert slecht op de commando's en de spanning is ver te zoeken. Zonde dat spellen als dit sowieso gemaakt werden.

O jogo é do tipo ação e estratégia, tendo como objetivos roubar os artefatos desejados pelo casal de chantageadores e escapar da polícia.

In a much better game, the sheer randomness that Hudson Hawk exudates would be funny. In a slightly better game, it might help commend it as an experience so awfully oddball that it’s worth a look in just so you can see what happens next. The fact is, the game is neither of these things; it’s just bad. You may be missing out on random killer nuns or arbitrary tennis players showing up out of nowhere -- in fact, no, you’re not. You’re not missing out at all. The odd glimpse of occasionally surreal enemies is simply not worth the excruciating trek it takes to reach them.

There are worse movie-to-game translations, to be sure, but that doesn’t mean Hudson Hawk needs to be given a passing glance. The NES is already weighed down by far too many abominable movie games. Lord knows the games don’t need to be encouraged by people actually playing them.

Beyond the heist storyline, this game has very little to do with the movie. The tone of the film is decidedly goofy, perhaps even intestinally bad. There's singing, dancing and buffoonish slapstick. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone suggested that Hudson Hawk makes you "want to throw things, yell at the actors, beg them to stop." But as horrendous as the movie is, at least it's interesting. Nothing about Hudson Hawk pulls you in and makes you care about Hudson or his crimes. I feel like this game stole three hours I'll never get back.
