I picked it up for £5 back in 1994, and played it (or attempted to) for about a week before completely giving up on it.

I don't remember what I did with it after that. I either traded it back in at the store, or traded it with some some poor sap at school.

I tried it again on an emulator to see if I was just too much of a dumbass kid to 'get it', but no, I was right. It was a clunky mess of untextured white shit.

>> No.4583673

I felt like the otter eating watermelon with this game. Spent easily 30 hours yet I'm pretty sure I didn't even get to 30% of the game. Fucking piece of shit

In the late 90's/early 2000's this game was selling for HUNDREDS of dollars because it was the only localized DBZ game

I think this is the worst SNES game ever made. It has no redeeming qualities whatsoever and I'm sure that many kids either bought this or received it as a gift because of how good Batman Returns was

I saw a youtube vid on this that was pretty interesting. Apparently they were constantly given notes that would fuck up development but the head guy would constantly go on magazine interviews and yammer about how this was going to be the biggest thing since sliced bread.

My older brother and I rented this game right when it came out and we were actually really looking forward to it. I even remember talking about how cool it would be with unlimited flight and that the flying might even be better than mario 64.

I'm not huge into them (DKC is like a 6 and YI like a 7 out of them for me) but if you think games like that are horseshit then you really need to play some of the HIDDEN GEMS ITT.
If you want another one, try emulating The Guardian of Darkness for the PS1. I'm the unfortunate one here to actually own it.

The main thing I dislike about dkc is, if memory serves me well, it started this 100% a game trend.

Intolerably bad NES port of this arcade game. The arcade version was pretty mediocre, but the NES port was just awful.

I remember me and my brother would laugh at it, and I remember seeing the arcade version at a skating rink and thinking it didn't look much better.
