What can be said of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker?

A classic from the old megadrive days, yes - MEGADRIVE (oh, go on then - Genesis too), whewere one would play the king of pop as he strutted his stuff around villains on the quest to find children and take them safety....'ahem'.

I was glad to see that the soundtrack was intact and spews renditions of Jacksons hits, notably those used in the movie this is based upon, as are his 'UH' OOH' and OW sound effects. But seriously, if you were a fan of Jackos and still have a little love - this maaay be the main draw here - as there are some classics 'BAD', 'Beat it', 'Smooth Criminal' - and not too tinny either.

Levels are basically the same all the way through - a product of its time - not that this takes anything away from it.

There is no denying it, there is still a certain addictive nature to this game, as you basically dance around levels, save kiddywinks, wait for Bubbles to appear on your shoulder and dispatch a little pixelated Joe Pesci's minions.

This all culminates in the end of level bonanza where Jacko gets them all dancing to smooth criminal and they all drop at his feet.

Bright graphics, great for the time, but its the silky animation that sells it. Also, the slightly surreal disturbing edge the game now has due to recent events.....really Michael, shunning away women in hot cocktail dresses? Turning those children's frowns upside downs? Turning into a

7/10, but for nostalgia's sake - 10/10

I could play this game just for the MIDI songs!

But honestly, any game where Michael can turn into a giant mecha shooting laser beams out of his eyes will have me hooked!  ^^

It's scary to know that video games can predict the future. :D It's an alright game but gets kinda boring doing the same thing over and over
