Great Game For The NES
27 July 2006 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Rated E(Contains Violence)

Nightmare On Elm Street is an NES game based on the popular horror film series.This and the Friday the 13th game were both released on the same year and both were based on popular horror films.However Nightmare On Elm Street is miles ahead of Friday the 13th.Friday the 13th had bad graphics.Some of it was cool for its time like how you can drive boats and how enemies just pop up but after playing both Nightmare On Elm Street is definitely the better video game.The graphics are way better compared to Friday the 13th.The graphics are actually pretty good for the NES.The gameplay is fun and the story is interesting.You must go through haunted houses finding Freddy Krugers bones while battling Freddy and his minions.His minions are bats and other small creatures and you kill them by throwing rocks at them.After some time you will have to battle Freddy in his many different and interesting forms.My only problem with this game is you cant save and unless you play the game for a really long time you will never beat it.Anyway Nightmare On Elm Street is a fun and classic NES game.
