hardest "simple" game EVER...until the sequel came along
6 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Nintendo game was equal parts compelling and maddening. Coming of as a rendition of the classic game "Brakeout" on massive steroids. It was simple enough to make you think you COULD beat it, but the game lulled you into a false sense of security. It was so much harder than you first thought it would be. But still you can not seem to put it down. It didn't matter how many times that damn ball slipped past your paddle, you will one day triumph, you WILL show this game who's boss. Oh yes it will happen. But no, the jokes on you, the game will beat you down. But you always ALWAY come back for me, you little misogamist. There's no other way to describe it. This game simply is... Araknoid.
