Platoon (NES)

Postby Herschie » July 7th, 2019, 8:13 pm

Somebody once wrote: 'Hell is the impossibility of reason.' That's what this game feels like. Hell. I hate it already, and it's only been five minutes. The hardest thing I've ever done was pick up the controller and play this. I have no idea what I'm doing. A VC could get a cheap hit in from out of nowhere and I wouldn't even know it! I'm so tired of this game. And they say, if you're going to glitch-out, it's better that you get it in the first few minutes. The logic being that you don't suffer that much. I don't think I can keep this up for fifteen minutes. I think I've made a big mistake buying this game.

But whattaya want me to do? Not play this so some lame-o just in from the world can get his beauty sleep? Nah!

Day by day I struggle to maintain not only my strength but also my sanity. It's all a blur. I have no energy to play. I don't know what's right or wrong anymore. The morale of the men is low, a civil war in the platoon. Half the men with Elias, half with Barnes. There's a lot of suspicion and hate. I can't believe we're fighting LJN, when we should be fighting them.

In all reality, I asked my friend if he ever bought a mistake that he just can't return. He told me to keep my pecker hard and my powder dry, and the world will turn!

I just watched Platoon on Netflix Saturday night so this is timely and fresh! Very funny stuff!

And if there's a heaven and God I hope there is, Elias is up there drunk as a monkey and playing the Commodore 64 version of Platoon.

That's called verisimilitude.

Great review and great paraphrasing. That review was it classic. And yes I remember having platoon on my commodore 64. It was horrid. You nailed it my friend

Glad you all like my reviews. This game buku sucks! Made me spray skeeter repellent on my hands so I wouldn't have to play.

Since you can't foist bad games on me in person these days you're going to do it virtually? There's no escape! And I'm pretty sure I do have Aliens around here, somewhere... gotta bang out my reviews of "Crush, Crumble, and Chomp" and "Gunship!" first though.
