Remember the last time when my emulator wouldn't work Action 52 for the NES? Well, my new emulator does and I'll exploit it's horribleness all here (Except for game #1.).

Review #1: Star Evil:

In this game, you're a ship trying to get to the end and destorying other ships. By shooting at other ships. you destory them. Press the B button to shoot and move with the D pad to move your ship up, down, left, and right.

One thing I like about the game is that the controls are responsive. However, that's the only good I found about this sorry excuse.

The first thing that you'll notice is that there's a block just before you start! That was an horrible decision, not to mention that unless you're holding left, YOU WILL DIE FROM THE BLOCKS! What's also annoying is according to my two level of play, the music plays OVER AND OVER AGAIN! The game also looks generic, which fails to do the game any justice. Even worse, when you're shooting, it's like you're shooting out weights. WEIGHTS I TELL YOU! Also annoying as hell is the fact that if you touch a wall ONCE, YOU'RE DEAD MEAT! Also, from what I can tell, THERE ARE ONLY ONE WEAPON IN THE ENTIRE GAME! Adding to the bull-fest is having NO CONTINUES and you can't earn any lives in the game. Stay away from this piece of garbage that is Star Evil.

And worst of all? I have 50 more horrible Action 52 games to play. Wish me luck and hope I survive.

2.5/10.

@Terranigma: I'm glad to hear that. And surprised too, since I'm never willing to play terrible excuses for games.

Here's my review of Illuminator.

The goal of the game is to defeat your enemies on the stairs. When you do that, the lights comes back on for a little while, but it goes all dark again. That's the problem, it goes completely dark and YOU CAN'T SEE ANYTHING! You die in one hit, which is absolute bull. You also get no ability to earn lives and no continues. Oh and the game will stop working if you continue to play it.

4/10.

My review on G-Force Fighter.

Your goal is to get to the end of the level. You can move around by using the D-pad and pressing the A button will let you shoot. However, we have lots of issues with this game. First off, the enemies for the most part don't look like ships. Your ships looks like an frozen red mammoth, another ship will look like an green American Eagle, a ship might look like diamond, the list goes on. You also get no continues and no earning lives. The weaponary sucks, YOU ONLY GET ONE WEAPON IN THE ENTIRE GAME! The one weapon you do have is worthless, it's practically sudicide if you use it. The game is extremely short, only three levels and NO BOSSES IN THE ENTIRE GAME! Oh and you get only half the screen to move, going too far up or down will result in death, which is totally unfair.

Avoid this horrible piece of worthless junk. 2/10.

Also, I apoligize for double posting, but somebody please post here!

Me too, but so far, no game I've played earns a 0. However, they still sucks so bad that we need to stay away from this. After all the horrible mini-games are done, I'm going to contact Nintendo to NEVER release this game on the Virtual Console, because it's suppose to be that bad.

I tried to give the different games a real solid playthorugh once, to judge them somewhat objectively. I take it you'll arrive at the same conclusion as me - after a good 20 or so games, you'll getso tired of these awful and near-identical games you'll just give up.
