USA VC Update: Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
It's back to Sega games this week, it seems. Today's new game is the second game in the Alex Kidd series.
Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars was the beginning of a steep slope downhill for Sega's original mascot. The first Alex Kidd game was fairly good (We gave it a 7/10), but for the second game Sega made a massive mistake - They basically completely changed the gameplay! Instead of featuring special gameplay elements like vehicles and breaking blocks, the game is basically just a really straight-forward platformer. It's still somewhat decent, but it's also the last "good" Alex Kidd game.
Watch out for our Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars review which should be up soon.
On the WiiWare side of things you can finally grab a Konami game they actually made themselves - Yes, it's the long-awaited Gradius ReBirth!
