Defender II - NES

Defender II was originally released as Stargate to the arcades in 1981. This 1988 release for the NES delivers that arcade style action, scoring and extreme difficulty along with some catchy 8-bit tunes!

The music clips and sound effects are straight out of many other Nintendo first party games. Punch Out, being a major one. HAL knows how to get good performance out of the NES, that's for sure. The game itself is a solid version of Defender, so what you see is what you get.

I was first introduced to this game on the 2600. It was a great port and an excellent game for that platform. This one is more like the arcade, and I found it rather fun. It came out rather a long time after the 2600 version, so I suppose they could have improved things; however, I still liked this edition.

 Forza Horizon - Xbox 360
"I had a feeling they copied test drive unlimited. The only thing that's different is that the graphics are better. Fantastic game though. But next time I want to see properties you can store your cars in. And maybe integrate the multiplayer with the single player." - segagtstig6940

 Atomic RoBo-Kid - Sega Genesis
"The story is cool, the graphics are great, the weapons are awesome, but the Atomic RoBo kid sprite is too big. If that's supposed to be a kid, it mutated into a giant. Since most of the game is spent in tunnels it makes it hard to maneuver past the barrage of enemy fire. Still very playable, but not the best shmup on the Genesis." - grandmasterp

 Star Wars: Battlefront II - PlayStation 2
"My favorite Star Wars game ever. I prefer the Xbox version, however." - sgtbarone

 PCP Station - Miscellaneous
"Ashens does it and know cgr undertow does it, thats awesome" - sonicfan
