It’s fast moving and fun for a bit, but there’s not a lot of variety in the gameplay, and it doesn’t seem to follow the movie plots in the least.

Despite the overall mediocrity of the game, it controls surprisingly well and the difficulty is well-paced. The first three levels are pretty easy, but it starts to get slightly more difficult with each passing stage. Riggs is fast and agile (due to his feathered hair, no doubt) and Murtaugh is tougher, but slower. Despite these simple pleasures, Lethal Weapon is yet another addition to the long list of games that didn’t need to be made. Handle with caution.

I cannot with good conscience recommend this game to anyone; but if you do get an unrelenting urge to punish yourself, you really only need to bother with the first level of this game, because much like minorities to white supremacists, they all look alike to me.
There is nothing to recommend about NES Lethal Weapon and it must rank as one of the worst ever games. Avoid it like typhoid or the plague.
The Video Game Critic (Apr 24, 2005)
The first stage is set in a park with shacks and tree houses that look awful. The scenery does improve later as you move into a restaurant-lined waterfront. Still, there's no interaction with the scenery (except for the occasional brick), so the action is monotonous. The "music" (if you want to call it that) is unpleasant and loops endlessly. Even die-hard Lethal Weapon fans will have a hard time getting excited about this cookie-cutter side-scroller.
