Rocket Knight Adventures

Rating: A

This game makes me feel like I'm 6 years old, in a good way. It's almost... magical. I love the music and the cartoony graphics. I adore Rocket Knight. He's very heroic. This game succeeds well at telling a story. The only thing that disappoints is the lack of a password continue option: when the game is over you have to start all the way back at level one again. Other than that, I can find little fault with Rocket Knight Adventures other than it being so tough near the end. The enemies are very cartoonish and crisp. The bosses are imaginative and original. The cutscenes are cute and well done and help to move the story along without being tiresome or intrusive. The music serves as much more than random background music; the themes seem to be well suited to each particular level. All in all, this is a splendid game, and leagues better than Sparkster: Rocket Knight II, the latter of which degenerated into being just another Sonic the Hedgehog wannabe.
