I agree about Kick off 2
The control sucks, it's nothing 2 do with real soccer.
Party game is easer to control:laugh

Ian is absolutely right Thundercats is absolutely dire.
Its even worse than the abysmal Count Duckula, which for some reason they made a sequel to!
Some things just defy comprehension............

And I believe it was Amiga Computing that gave that game an 85 score when it came out. And AC were known for low scores on most games back then!

Hmmm, how about Fireblaster? Anyone ever played it? Probably one of the most dismal shoot-em-ups of all time.

I watched Titan A.E. 's trailer, and I just thought "Damn, mix Space Ace and Dragon's Lair heroes, and you get that guy there"


I have some reservations about Kick Off 2 too. I think the game is damn uncontrollable, the sprites are too big, the game is too fast and the goalies are too stupid.

In the other hand, I think Goal! (That was going to be KO3) is a fantastic game. Not better than SWOS, of course .


About KO2 resembling real soccer or not... well, I've played many, many, many soccer games in my life, and the only one that gets very close to real soccer is the Winning Eleven series on PSX. Although SWOS is my fav soccer game ever , I must be honest and admit it doesn't feel like real soccer THAT much (how many times do you cross from the side for an attacker to head into the goal, or how many times do you pass the ball back, to hold the ball and see if you attackers get a better position? not too many, I believe)

I know this is late, but Cody...you mentioned Moonshine Racers. How DARE you? :kill
That was one of my fave arcade games, spending nearly 20 bucks one night down at the Foodtown in the TSS center in Oceanside, Long Island. Man, the authentic feeling of being a southern redneck. Why, when I used to ride my bike to get to the Foodtwon, I'd put a chicken in my basket and play Buck Owen's on my Emrson Boom box to get the feel of it. Ahhh...Moon *hic*shine ..............

Been a while since I read this thread,so I hope I didn't repeat it earlier,but those arcade Dragonlance games by US Gold were abysmal,(for those fans of the excellent novels,of which I'm one).
I put up with Heroes of the Lance for the intro portraits, but Dragons of Summer Flame needs a sledgehammer to get any "fun" out of that game!

I think that Mortal Kombat was very poor.
I hated Batman (from the first Burton's movie).
Street Fighter (1) was a pile of...
Captain planet is... no comment.

etc etc etc

Post Unplayable drivel

I agree with you about Mortal Kombat 1, Mr Softy. The fact the game was released on Amiga was for most Amiga-mags reason enough to award it with a 90% score or higher. I'm not quite so sure about Batman the Movie. It is a bit too difficult for its own good, but playable nevertheless.

I'd like to add some more titles to this thread:
- Under Pressure: Big clumsy sprite which is difficult to control spoils an otherwise good-looking game.
- Manhattan Dealers: Look at the graphics, listen to the music and try to control the wooden sprite - MD is a badly disguised ancient 8-bit game.
- Hudson Hawk: This will probably start a flame war and I will be abandoned by other EAB-members, but I still think HH is the most uncontrolable Amiga game I have ever played. The inertia-factor of the Hudson-sprite is too big.
- Any Sierra game (except Kings Quest VI) converted to Amiga: They look either too simple or are too slow to play on a bog-standard Amiga. Pc-bleeps, people with red faces, unresponsive parser, bad American humour, long loading times: Everything I loath about a game is featured in a Sierra title.

Batman the Movie? Surely not one of the worst Amiga games ever!?!

I tried body blows once. Hated the controls.

[edit: ho ho ho I see people defending Batman! Yay it was a highly subjective choice I reckon. But it got badly on my nerves! My pirate copy was quickly recycled to host something else... ]

I HATED Body Blows! I could never understand the attraction of this game. The characters and moves are SOOO dull!! The graphics are nicely drawn but who remembers the names of the fighters from BB?
Everyone knows all the characters from SF2 but BB nahhh.

EDIT
@MrSofty
Did you ever reach the second level of Batman? Very nice racing level.
