Air Zonk features the futuristic relative of our prehistoric hero Bonk and is a pretty zany side-scrolling 2D shooter. The visuals are bold and impressive - the TG-16 really could dazzle when it wanted to - and the action is exactly what you'd expect - amazing. This really is the only option this week, folks!
Mach Rider and Yoshi aren't terrible games by any means, but they're a bit disappointing. Here at the VCA we can't help but feel that some NES games are getting released just to make up the numbers. If you were a fan of these titles back in the day then you'll obviously enjoy them, but everyone else should just download Air Zonk and be done with it!
Check out this week's reviews:
Air Zonk - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Points
Mach Rider - NES - 500 Points
Yoshi - NES - 500 Points
I wonder how many unsuspecting gamers will be fooled into buying Yoshi simply because its a Mario title.
Beware. Unhappy bitches will be cutting theirselves just cause Paper Mario has not been released.
@ Bass XO I was and its a fun puzzler! But I might not get it this time around. Eh, only time will tell.
C´mon! Where is Paper Mario? What are they waiting for?
You got F-Zero X couple of weeks ago and your actually expecting Paper Mario already?
I hope we get it a few weeks in front, just to make you suffer like you did and still are with Super Paper Mario!
Another really bad week for us in the US. Although I would consider both Yoshi and Zonk to be mediocre games but Mach Rider is a horrible game.
Three more games nobody wants to buy. Grr.
what in the world? just when will TMNT 2 be released? this is ridiculous
Nintendo is waiting for people to stop calling themselves Paper Mario Fan.
i just want to have air zonk in europe!
Air Zonk looks retarded.
Still waiting on paper mario, yoshis island and super metroid here!
You guys are so impatient. If you really want a game go buy a physical cartridge copy. Considering I just got my Wii 2 days ago I can finally look into the games I don't care enough to actually buy a cartridge for but am still interested in.
I bet if instead of that crap yoshi game or very dated mach rider they gave River City Ransom Nintendo would have actually have a few sales this week....dumb marketing dept! HAHA
I have to agree; this week was bad. I hope that we get Paper Mario next week.. or at least in July.
the games look soo much better on an hd tv over the component cables, believe me i wish i could get the same quality out of my n64.
and of course majoras mask? super metriod?
Eh? I went to download Air Zonk and it wasn't there. Just Yoshi and Mach Rider.
Anyone else had this problem?
Lord stop crying for Paper Mario, and download a game that's actually worth the 600 points. Air Zonk is truly a classic. One of the best shooters the Turbo had to offer, graphics were unique, different music for every stage. You can't knock it, until you've tried it. There is more to gaming, then just Mario. Step out of you protective shells, and experience a classic!
[email protected] Air Zonk looks . That means coming from someone who hasn't even played it. <br> <br>Mach Rider is great as well. <br> <br>Btw Mendez, I hope you guys don't get it first
Ash, Air Zonk isn't available in England yet. It will be on the 13th.
I used to have Yoshi for the Game Boy and I thought it was a great puzzler. While it lacks the timelessness of games like Tetris and Dr. Mario, it was still a good alternative for puzzle junkies.
