Hudson Hawk

Hudson Hawk could be known as one of the worst NES games of all time, well I have to agree with that. Why? Well when you read this review you'll see why. This review is going to be long ass so prepare to READ.

Hudson Hawk is based off some Bruce Willis film back in the 90's which no one really gave a crap about. Ocean, who created some horrible movie licensed games like Hook, Robocop, Juarassic Park, and much more. At the beginning of the game I think the plot is you have to steal some stuff from a museum.

You use baseballs to fight your opponents. The baseballs aren't very helpful since when you try to throw at an opponent, it makes a curve. So you're going to have master when to hit dogs. Who are your opponents? In the first few minutes of the game you fight dogs and owls. And meet one of the most godawful opponents in the game. A wiener dog of death. This wiener dog will kill you, and yet Bruce Willis is able to survive bullets in Die Hard, but a wiener dog will just kill him.

Here's one of the other flaws of the game, BRUCE WILLIS JUMPS ABOUT 2 CENTIMETERS! And jumping over some of the enemies is just useless since when your jump is so short it makes you land on the enemy. Another annoying part is when you have to move these blocks to jump onto a window. Easy right? Well wrong because you have to first push the block up the elevator, put the block down, get the next block, go up the elevator, push the block and hope it lands on the other block while you try to avoid the wiener dog of death.

When you get inside the building it gets more frustrating because you have to now avoid lasers from cameras. To get over the cameras, you must push a block near this small fence thing. You'd think this would be simple, but its not because to get over that fence you'd think to push the block as close to the fence. But when you do that, the block pushes away from the fence. Then you get to meet your next opponent, a mutant on a bicycle. I didn't get any further in the game because its just makes you more frustrated.

Well that was my Hudson Hawk Review by me, Xfighter1138. Hope you enjoyed it. :cool:

Re: Hudson Hawk

Good review, only because i played the game and now hate wiener dogs. The game is worse than the movie if you can believe it.

8/10 for the review
1/10 for the movie
0/10 for the game

Re: Hudson Hawk

lol i work at Blockbuster and one of my managers told me that Hudson Hawk was an epic film and called me an idiot because i had never seen it...just judging from these comments it looks like i'm not missing out on anything.

Hudson Hawk is a crappy movie, so I never bothered with the game.

Re: Hudson Hawk

The movie is off beat and totally bizarre. It's mostly bad with some decent parts thrown in. I love the beginning robbery scene, but most of it sucks. The weiner dog figures into the movie heavily as well.
