For an NES game, it rocks!
18 March 2002 | by (Shermer, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Okay, so maybe the game is older than God, but who cares? It is still as much fun now as it was 14 years ago. I still have fond memories as a 6 year old playing this game and just blastin' everything in sight. What fun!
