Not even Michael could sell this mediocre game
Moonwalker is a bit of a nuisance, if you actually want to play it, but many NES collectors, even the ones that collect games they actually want to play do seem to have it. It's an experiment where nobody really cared, and so the quality of the game, all things considered was pretty bleak. There are 4 stages in this one, one stage that is all about top down exploration, another one that is classic sidescrolling, one where you have to execute Michael's dance move, the Moonwalker, and a few more that are about jet ski racing. None of them are... well playable! The controls are unresponsive, the design is subpar, the animations are just ugly and don't really feel nice, they feel stiff and they take the controls away from you. It's a really maddening game, if you actually want to play it for real, but if you are looking to experience a game gone bad, definitely Moonwalker has to be in that collection. Plus, the story has Michael Jackson trying to save some children, which, given all the debates and all the untruths, just feels bleak, especially for a Michael fan. Oh, well, but if you liked oddities, this sure has odd value in there, galore. Else, download Super Mario 3, if you want a sidescroller that is really fantastic and well playable.
