"Welcome to bad gaming 101."

Attention, attention class! Welcome to bad gaming 101. I am your teacher, Prof. gamer8r. The lesson today will be about what is perhaps the most infamous example of bad gaming, the average movie-based title. One example of such a game is Robocop, released for the Commodore 64 in 1987. Here, let's begin.

Let's start with a scenario. I'm going through a box of old commodore disks that I just bought "as-is, no guarantees," figuring I'm bound to find a few that work, (most of them look like they were either used as cupholders, hopscotch squares, or by someone trying out that "You can't fold that in half 8 times" trick) and to my dismay only a few look like they're going to be readable to the disk drive. One of these is Robocop, a game that gets my hopes up as something that should be good, only I soon have my hopes shattered by the actual gameplay.

Gameplay: 2/10
Yeah, that's right. I load the game into my commodore, and I soon find out that the game isn't even good enough to make it worth the time it takes to type the "load" command. As I leave the title screen The game welcomes me with a digitized speech clip of "abblegblah" in a voice that's so garbled it's enough to make the Wizard of Wor commit ritual suicide. Now I start as robocop, walking down a side-scrolling road, and I find out that somebody took all the clones from Star Wars, took away their uniforms, gave them guns, and told them to shoot at me. (heh, get it? They all look the same? Clones from star wars? get it? Never mind...) I can kill them, but it only takes about 3 seconds for whoever's responsible for this wave of random shooting to clone a new fighter and stick him in the exact same spot as the one that died. The ones not hanging out of windows run up to you on the street (would you run up to Robocop after you saw him kill 20 people? Didn't think so) and shoot, and the unresponsive controls mean that they'll always hit you.

Music: 5/10

The music in the game was okay (though very forgettable) and didn't get too annoying, but that SPEECH!! If you're not gonna make the voice say something UNDERSTANDABLE don't use a voice!!

Control: 4/10

Robocop. Moves. Way. Too. Slowly.

You get shot by 4 people at a time, and by the time you hit one your health's gone down by about half.

Storyline 6/10

It's (kinda) the storyline from the movie. Basically (for those of you who haven't seen the movie, in which case you'd better stop reading this and go rent the tape or something), it's about this cop who dies and gets made into this robot with powers and stuff and he's gotta find the guy who killed him. The game kinda follows the story, but not really.

Graphics: 6/10

The graphics are actually very good for a C64 game. It doesn't matter. No matter how good this game looks, no matter how good it sounds, not matter how many different foods it can make and teleport through the screen to your kitchen, if the game's not fun it's NOT WORTH PLAYING.

r8ing: I'm convinced the reason that this disk survived when most of the other ones in the lot I got it in were destroyed was because nobody wanted their drink to touch this game.

I'm not gonna put a buy/rent thing here, you can't rent it. Only buy this if you're a HUGE robocop fan or something. Class dismissed.
