The Guardian Legend (NES)

Great hidden gem

The Good
The best part of the game is the 2 types of gameplay. Both the overworld and the shooting stages are fun with varied environments. The gameplay is fun and challenging in both sections.

The graphics are good for an NES game. Each section has different artwork with a good variety of enemies. A lot of the enemies are reskinned versions of earlier enemies. This was a common practice in this era to save space on the cartridge.

There is a variety of weapons that you can use with different

The Bad
The game is hard!!! A lot of the bosses in the flying stages are bullet sponges that will hit you hard. It took us many attempts just to survive the opening boss before you even get to the overworld stages.

Due to the massive amount of stuff on the screen, things will drop out on occasion as the sytem is pushed to it's limit.

The Bottom Line
Really a neat game and concept. Definitely worth a try for anyone into retro games.

Wolfenstein 3D (DOS)

The great grand daddy of first person shooters.

The Good
This wasn't so much a game as a revolution. It was the first game of its genre. By using the 1st person perspective, everything that happens in the game feels like it's actually happening to you. The graphics were state of the art in their day. Sure it doesn't compare to unreal or quake, but this was 5 years before them. The voices are hilarious. My friends and I used to play just to listen to the nazi's dying. the controls are about the easiest to learn of any FPS I've ever played. Plus what could be better than shooting nazi's?

The Bad
There isn't much variety of enemies. The music gets pretty repetitive after a while. The ending was kind of a let down. Umm there's not much of a story to it. Umm thats about it.

The Bottom Line
It's nazi killing at it's best. The first first person shooter.
