Disney's Super NES game Aladdin puts you in control of one of
their biggest stars. You control Al through Agrabah's streets
to the Genie's lamp to the big fight with Jafar. As Aladdin, you
can jump, throw apples, duck, run, and jump. But do you have
what it takes to collect enough red jewels to see the secret ending?
Graphics 6 out of 10
While the graphics are not the greatest you have ever seen on
the Super, they are good enough that you can tell who the
characters are. The effects with the Cave of Wonders caving in
are pretty good. And the final battle with Jafar is pretty well animated.
Music and Sound 5 out of 10
The sound is okay, but you will probably turn it off after a while.
The sounds while bonking a guard on the head get monotonous.
The music includes a couple songs from the movie, but even so,
you will find it gets annoying after a while.
Game Challenge 4 out of 10
Even on the hard setting, this game shouldn't give you much trouble. The
most challenging thing is getting all of the Red Jewels. Although some of
the jumps and the carpet scenes may give you a little trouble. Overall,
this game isn't challenging.
Game Play-Fun 6 out of 10
While not very challenging, the game is fun while it lasts. The
passwords make it easy to get back in the game. It is nice to
hit all the guards in the head with apples after getting annoyed
by them constantly. Younger kids will particularly enjoy this game.
Younger kids will probably get frustrated with this game in the later
stages. Some of the jumps while in the lamp can get difficult. Most
of the game, however, should not be that frustrating. If frustrated,
you can always get a password and come back later.
Replayability 4 out of 10
After you beat the game, all that's left to do is collect enough
jewels to see the secret ending. This is easily accomplished.
After doing so there just isn't enough to keep you interested
in playing the game again. Unless you forget what the ending is.
Game Value 3 out of 10
The game isn't really worth buying full price. If you see it at a
garage sale, you may want to pick it up for a couple bucks. You
will probably beat it within a week and get enough jewels for the
ending the next week so don't be worried about missing much if
you don't get to play it.
Overall 5 out of 10
Disney delivers a game which follows the plot of the movie. While
not a challenge, you may want to play it just to say you've done
so. The game is fairly fun, but doesn't deliver enough challenge
for the avid gamer.
