Review of 'Big Trouble in Little China'

Rating:1 User: Alessandro Grussu

This game should have been more aptly titled: "Big Trouble in Little China, or How To Waste A Great Movie License". Beacuse that's what it is - a dreadful Kung-Fu Master style game with dire graphics, no sound and gameplay which is as absorbing as watching paint dry on walls. Even the various available weapons seem to have little or no effect on the continuous flow of copycat enemies.

John Carpenter's classic action movie could have easily been turned into a great arcade game, were it tackled by a more competent team. As it is, it's a great example of how to squander an enormous potential into a sub-standard final product.
