Nice idea, but it did not entirely work.
10 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

I liked the premise of this game and it was rather well done and rather fun. The problem is not really the game itself just the time I played it. I was to young to really figure things out, and there was no internet to look up a walk through. So I had problems doing certain things, could not quite figure things out, and I had no way of finding out the information as no one I knew ever played this game. Which is understandable, this game is a bit unique in its style and game play and most of the people I knew were more into the mainstream type games such as "Double Dragon" or "Mike Tyson's Punchout". This one though intrigued me, a person that likes those out there type of things and this certainly is in the category of out there. Basically, a bunch of teens with different specialties go through a mansion in search of a friend or a couple of friends. What they find is a very demented mansion with radioactive swimming pools and various other things of that nature. It also has a very strange family living there though one of them may prove to be your ally. It was fun, but I was never able to really do a whole lot when I played it then. Probably why I would like to play it again as I think I could figure it out a bit better now. This game also seems to have been one of those games that started as a computer game and was ported over to the Nintendo gaming system. The controls and such just make it seem to be more for a computer. I liked how you could look at everything and interact with a lot of things as well. Just a game that could have been better, but not really that, just a game I should play again now that I can look up how to do stuff and figure a way to win.
