Ed Semrad Reviews More NES Games
Video game reporter and reviewer, Ed Semrad of the Milwaukee Journal, has played a bunch of the recent Nintendo Game Paks and given his opinions. He absolutely loved Trojan, giving it a 9.5 out of 10. He’s impressed by the game’s graphics, but the challenge could put off some players.
Rush ‘N Attack gets a solid 9 out of 10. He compares it favorably to Commando and says it’s “an outstanding two-person…” game.
Track & Field from Konami doesn’t fare as well. Although the game itself isn’t bad, Ed once again rails against the NES controllers. It’s no secret he doesn’t like them, but he says the game is near impossible to play with them, which we take issue with, but do agree that a joystick option would be better suited for this button-masher. He doesn’t specify an exact score here, but he does say that it doesn’t even rate a 3, so it’s obvious he disliked this one very much.
Rounding out the reviews are the latest sports entries from Nintendo. Ed really enjoyed Slalom, the fast-paced skiing game. He gave it a perfect 10 out of 10. Pro Wrestling earned an 8 out 10 and Volleyball a 7 out of 10.
