The Three Stooges franchise is probably not at the top of anyone's list of concepts just waiting to be made into a videogame. But if one had to be made, this was exactly the way to do it. You may never bother to finish it, but its design allows it to be picked up and abandoned whenever convenient. This could have easily been a really crummy platformer or even a shooter, but instead the creators, clearly Stooge fans, avoided this pitfall and turned out something worth fooling around with even if you never see it all the way through.
3 Stooges is one game made up of several "mini-games", none of which are complex or action-packed. Most are simple obstacle courses, which pay checks cashed depending on how well you do in each. Not a lot of excitement, but the graphics and sounds are absolutely incredible and worth a look.
Despite the appalling lack of violence, The Three Stooges does a fine job with its minigame structure (thank God it wasn’t another horrendous Beam Software platformer). It’s short and somewhat lacking in content, but then, so are the Stooges films. Know what you’re getting into with these knuckleheads and you’ll soitenly enjoy it.
The presentation is top-notch here,
featuring excellent digital images of the Stooges as well as voice
samples direct from the films – some of the best samples in the
entire NES library. There isn’t a huge amount of replayability, but
what is here is a very quirky and unique game, and a “must play” for
fans of The Three Stooges.
