„Balloon Fight“ hat die Zeiten eher schlecht überdauert und kann durch seine Präsentation niemanden hinter dem Ofen hervorlocken. Der Soundtrack ist kultig, aber wenig abwechslungsreich. Auch das Spielprinzip begeistert heute kaum noch. Hinzu kommt, dass der Wii U-Port mehr schlecht als recht ist. Retro-Fans dürften aber dennoch ihren Spaß haben. Abseits dieser Mängel wird schließlich ein äußerst solider Klassiker geboten.

Balloon Trip is an old game, and its age is starting to show. While it's an entertaining game that showcases the simplicity of many classic arcade titles that found their way onto the NES home console, it also has the kind of repetitive gameplay that can become tiresome sooner rather than later. While this Wii U re-release is a suitable port of the original with the much-appreciated additions of off-screen play, Virtual Console restore points, and Miiverse integration, it’s a difficult recommendation for new audiences who weren’t around to enjoy it when it was originally released. Balloon Fight attempts to fly high, but you can't help feeling that it's just full of hot air.

Beyond the fact that this plays almost exactly like Joust, Balloon Fight really doesn't make any sense. Wouldn't a dart gun be a more effective weapon to combat the evil balloon men? And why do I have to mash on the buttons to move my character up? You're using balloons; shouldn't you float without mashing the buttons? Like Soccer and Urban Champion before it, Balloon Fight is an early Nintendo title that deserves to be left in the past.
