A good game if you're looking for a challenge

The Good

I loved the animation, graphics and music. You almost forget that you're playing a SNES with an 8-bit sound processor. The music is straight from the movie and sounds almost just as good. Simba and all his enemies and surrounding's look incredible for side scroller action, the best SNES has to offer, along with "Donkey Kong Country". Beating the game is more than a challenge for even the must hardcore gamers! It may seem like a kid's game but trust me, it's just the opposite!

The Bad

Sometimes Simba doesn't jump when you press the B button. The levels can get frustrating and when you get game over you have to start over at the beginning. On one level there's small rocks falling from the sky and at one point a big rock rolling down a slope behind you and you have to out run the big rock and if one of the small rocks falls from the sky and hits you while your running flat out you get hurt and stop running for a second and then you can't escape from the big boulder which is extremely frustrating - making a game hard is one thing, making it impossible is another thing.

The Bottom Line

If you find it and are a hard-core gamer, buy it! If you've never played a SNES before and your buying one used don't pick this as your first game, get something a bit easier, like Super Mario World or Super Bomberman.
