Maniac Mansion NES Review - Great Fun!

by ChemicalTrain on Thursday, June 19, 2003
This is one of my favorites and it's truly one of the greatest NES games ever. I remember renting it as a kid but all I could do was watch my sister play. You can imagine how hard it would have been for a 6 year old to play it sucessfully. I understand that this game is very rare and I have seen it go for a lot on Ebay, but I was lucky enough to find it in the NES bin at the local FuncoLand for under $10. I was kind of surprised I found it because they had one behind the counter for like $25 and the one I bought worked great. I remember I encountered a guy the next time I visited. He was looking for Maniac Mansion and I told him that I had found it and how much paid for it. He was SO pissed. He had been looking for it forever. Anyways, this is one of the funnest games you'll ever play. It involves puzzle solving and may even scare you at times. The point and click format is a bit akward, but I'm not sure that it could have been done better any other way. If you can find this game for a decent price, don't pass it up. It will provide hours of thought-provoking and fun gameplay!
