Q-Bert - the original arcade game - is indeed a classic. But looks and sound effects aren't the only thing wrong with this seriously botched NES version. Theres the very BIG issue of the delay between when you hit a direction on the D-pad and when Q-bert slowly turns to face that way and then jumps, about a second after the fact. This as opposed to his instant reactions in the arcade game. Nevermind being faithful, this delayed control is plain frustrating and totally degrades what can be a very fun and addicting game on most other platforms.
