THE MANY FACES
OF............WIZARD OF WOR
This new feature received alot of positive feedback, so I will keep doing it.
This month I am doing one of my favorite games, Wizard of Wor. This is one of
the greatest two player games and a pretty decent one player game. But which one
of the three versions is the best? Read on to find out!
GOLD MEDAL-This was a tough
choice, but the gold goes to the Bally version. While it is called "The
Incredible Wizard", we all know it is Wizard of Wor. This version looks and
plays great! I first was skeptical about it with the Bally joysticks, but they
really work very well with it. This game is reason enough to own a Bally system!
SILVER MEDAL-The Atari 5200
version is a great version and is easily as good as the Bally version, but
because of the joysticks, I have to give the nod to the Bally. While the
joysticks don't inhibit the gameplay as much as many games, it still affects it.
BRONZE MEDAL-The bronze has
to go to the Atari 2600. While it plays well and is quite good, considering the
system it is for, it just doesn't compete. The main flaw is the flickering
problem. Those monsters flicker like mad and can really distract you. Too bad as
this is a very enjoyable game.
