Is it really that bad?

>> No.2449385

as a game? not really. as a game based on a movie? terrible and disappointing

>> No.2449386

I've seen gameplay of it. I've found most Atari games of that era completely dull and meandering.

If you're intrigued, get a ROM.

>> No.2449435


It's about the same as any other Atari game. There were far worse games on Atari.

I always considered it more of a disappointment than a failure. People expected it to be something incredible with all of the hype.

No, the worst game of all time has to be a title appointed to a game that absolutely fails on every level like Bubsy 3D or Superman 64.

>> No.2449448

It's a C-.

As an adventure game from 1982, it's not bad. Even ambitious for a 2600 game. It's just way too short. ET expects you to treat it like an arcade game, where you play the game over and over again trying to get a higher score.

>> No.2449452

all atari games that are not a maze or a shooter are terrible

It depends on the studio. Activision was GOAT, Atari was all over the place, Imagic games looked pretty but were just okay, 20th Century Fox was mostly bad and stay the fuck away from Mystique.

No, I think it's not half bad for atari.

Defender 2 > Defender

Sometimes labelled "Stargate", you should prefer this over the first one.

Also: Dolphin, Spiderman, HERO, Star Wars Arcade, Starmaster, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Demon Attack, Kangaroo, Yars Revenge, Frostbite, etcetera

>> No.2450849

Yes but ever since AVGN mentioned it you're gonna get a flood of contrarians telling you otherwise. Same applies to Simon's Quest and Castlevania IV being the best in the series.

Most 2600 games were pretty terrible to begin with. Yes E.T. was bad. You have 100% freedom to download and check it out for yourself.

Turmoil, it's a lightning fast shooting game that plays like an inside-out Tempest.

The Ms. Pac-Man port is good! Honest! It even lets you change the number of ghosts! That's a neat feature, right? ;_;

You decide.

You do NOT want to know how the graphics on the 2600 are programmed. It's just a very long string of convoluted workarounds.
