Console: Sega Genesis
Game Name: Michael Jackson "Moonwalker"
Number Of Players: 1
Pros: ITS MICHAEL JACKSON
Cons: then again.. Its MICHAEL JACKSON!
Games Like it: none known
*Gets off his seat and begins moonwalking around the room and does the Michael
Jackson pose*. This game is great! and it's a Michael Jackson game, Who'd ever
know that Michael Jackson made such a great game!
First off, its based on his movie "Moonwalker", You run around as Michael
Jackson and beating off the baddies and saving children. To get passed the
level, you have to find every child in the level and save them (some are hidden
behind doorways, windows, etc.). But one of the coolest things I found in this
game is your special move (Which is holding "A" for a certain amount of time and
then release it to do it). Your special is..... *Drum roll*........ DANCING! You
do one of Michael Jackson's famous dances and the enemies line up and do it with
you. It looks great! and then you can grab a special star (Appears in certain
levels) to transform you into the Robot he transforms too in the movie, giving
your long range attacks and such!
For the time, the graphics were great, detailed sprites, and Michael Jackson's
suit was so close to the movies!, The backgrounds are detailed from inside the
bar (level 1) too the graveyard scene!
Well.. Its Michael Jackson's music playing such as: Smooth Criminal, Billy Jean,
Etc. Etc. Then you have his famous Scream in the game for throwing your hat and
such! But it kinda gets annoying and repetitive.. I just like the music!
Your not going to play this game much, unless your a Michael fan who enjoys
listening to his new kind of music (No words.. weird beeping noises to replace
the guitar noises and such)
Detailed sprites and
wonderful colored backgrounds from level 1 to the last boss!
Like Michael Jackson's
music... Or you can't stand him screaming over and over as he
attacks..... Gee.. I wonder if you people are wondering why I gave it
an 8.5! :-P
It has basic gameplay of
killing baddies and saving little children. The plus is your
doing Michael Jackson's kick! :-D
The only thing that
brings down the score.. Its kind of Same-ol', Same-ol'... I'll just
play it again for the new music Sega made it into.. BEEP BEEP BEEP!
It's a fun game to play.
Really only for those who love Michael Jackson's old school music and
