I know, this game is old and you can find it for $20 just about anywhere. That’s why I’m writing this review - should you forego a couple of bean and cheese burritos and pick this game up? Read on my friend, read on.
Unless you have plenty of money to keep buying new televisions, I would recommend avoiding this game. I picked it up, along with some of my friends, and I haven’t been so aggravated at a game since trying to rescue Quickclaw on Pitfall 2. Seriously, I wanted to throw my controller across the room.
Additionally, because everyone is from a different country in the game, it encourages negative thoughts and phrases directed at someone only because of their nationality. I won’t give any specific examples, but there was more than one occasion where I would shake my clenched fist toward the heavens and curse a digital character’s nationality.
Looking at your bang-for-the-buck, you really don’t get it from this game. Sure, you can always come back and pick up where you left off (which is good), but you’ll also likely have your frustration level pick up where it left off too (which is astronomically high in this game). I figure, why spend my limited amount of time that I have to play games on a game that is just going to chap my hide? I could get the same effect by raking the downed leaves in my yard and I end up saving $20!
I used to think, hey, if it’s $20 or less, it can’t possibly be a bad deal. Well, this one is. Stay away. It’s not worth the time or money. Ask yourself this, when your wife asks why you came to bed so late last night, do you really want to say, “Honey, I was trying to beat the Koreans at Table Tennis”? Trying to save the world from mutated zombies is much nobler a cause.
