Judging by the cover art
Has anyone bought a game based upon the cover art and to be totally disappointed because it has nothing to do with the cover or just really sucked?
I bought Amagon
--I could kick myself for doing that.
Of course. I feel everyone is guilty for doing this. I honestly am just buying games just to increase my collection. I have the habit of playing one game till I beat it, then once that's done, I move on to the next. Being that this is a slow process, I usually have a ton of games lined up by then.
and Ikaira Warriors II.... they both look like sweet ass Contra
I know there are some, but I can't remeber any names at the moment......
My buddy got Amagon
for christmas many years ago when it was new. It's so bad it's almost unplayable.
I bought a "Taz" (looney tunes) game for the genesis that was terrible, now I tend to run away from licensed games.
If you're looking at old games you either have to (A) be willing to gamble the $5 or so purchase price that you might be buying a turd or (B) play the NES ROM
first so you have some idea of the gameplay.
I once bought Pesterminator because it was blue for $2. After trading it for a few decent games (Clu Clu Land
, Rad Racer
, etc.) I'd say it was worth it, however the game itself is a pretty big letdown. Cover art I'll admit wasn't SUPERB, but I thought it would be at least tolerable.
When i saw LamdStalker's Cover i was like as much as i like this game(i played a NES ROM
)i absolutely hate this cover!
