2014/9/6: Virtual Boy: 3-D Tetris

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 6th, 2014, 5:23 pm

I believe this is the final American-release Virtual Boy game I needed to review.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

I have this game...

Ugh, what an unplayable load of trash, can it even be called a Tetris game? More like Pain Train: Optical Singe RED.

Awesome! Glad you got around to the final VB game in the U.S. I think this is the first console that you have completed 100%. That's pretty awesome.

The game however, sucks. I owned this when I had a VB and played it for about 5 minutes and that was too much. The whole game is pretty flawed and I think you nailed my initial impression of the game. Good review.

I'm surprised anybody actually decided this was a good idea.

That leaves homebrews, imports and unreleased games - two of which are out there - Bound High & Faceball.

Seconded! And yes indeed, as I mentioned here, that's the last US release for the Virtual Boy left. (There are six Japanese releases as well, with varying levels of English-friendliness from what I understand.)

Completing a console's US library is a great milestone for this project and site. The next one could be the 32X, which has 3 US releases left (Pitfall, RBI Baseball '95, and Supreme Warrior) as we discussed a while back, and the VGC actually owns those games.

Or there's the Atari 5200, which I believe only has five official releases left to cover:

Bounty Bob Strikes Back
K-Razy Shooutout
Montezuma's Revenge
Pengo
Star Trek

And to my surprise, the Atari 7800 has only six left:

Basketbrawl
F-18 Hornet
Mario Bros.
Rampage
Tank Command
Title Match Pro Wrestling

So more milestones may be coming up, though a couple of those games are quite rare (especially Tank Command).

I doubt I would use an expletive if this game were to frustrate me.

Oh, and two more things:

- I think it's time for an icon for a completed review set, no?

- 3D versions of Tetris-style games are always a bad idea, and yet people kept trying it. Welltris, Blockout, Tetrisphere, this...they never really work.

I have a couple of the Japanese only releases if you would like to borrow them for review.

He also has only 6 more 32X games to review(7 if you count Surgical Strike, but the 32X version was only ever released in Brazil and is quite the possibly the rarest video game of all time, so I wouldn't expect a copy to pop up anytime soon):

Darxide

FIFA Soccer 96

Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

R.B.I. Baseball 95

Sangokushi IV(AKA Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire)

Supreme Warrior
