Double Dribble NES Review - You can better play basketball with the cartridge itself !!!

Hmmm, this supposed to be a basketball-game. I played it for a week when I broke a leg during ( how ironic..) basketball. But that's a story on itself, and I won't bother you with it.... :-)

At first you get impressed with the gameplay, but you'll get beaten by the computer, big time ! That's normal when you first play a game.

But when you get the hang of it and play it for a while, You'll notice something strange. When you play in 1 -player mode, and you're in a winning position in the game, the NES strikes back !

You suddenly can't score as much as you first did, and the computer scores three-points as if its every day routine ! Even in the easy mode ! I've lost many games in this way, which made me crazy and left me frustrated! It made me even wanna use the cartridge as a basketball !

Pretty frustrating, this game. Although it has the feeling of basketball, it's no fun playing a game who can't stand losing...........Only use this one in the terrific 2-player mode !!!!

A 3 out of 5 ( only for the 2-player mode)
