American Gladiators (NES) Review

American Gladiators NES Boxart

I never really watched the show when it came on. I watched a bit of the re-runs about a decade later and thought it was okay. I never got suckered into the game though. I heard pretty bad things over the years about it, but hey I’ll give anything a shot.

Unlike many other NES games based on a movie or TV show, American Gladiators at least gets the point of the show into video game form. You have a few events you can play and they can vary between decent to just plain awful.

Even though they have a lot of variety, the mini-games really aren’t that great. It’s a lot more playable than I imagined, but that doesn’t mean it’s enjoyable. I can see why they cancelled the TV show.


Score: 3 out of 10
