Space Ace 2008 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
A+ for the game itself, it’s an arcade classic from the 1980s and IMO the best of the 3 Bluth games.
A+ too for the transfer, the visuals and sound are great.
I thought using the Blu-Ray remote to play the game vs. a joystick or computer keyboard would be annoying, but it’s not too bad. Game play is very faithful to the arcade experience I remember from when I was a kid.
The “attract mode” sequence, which has some nice animation, is included. But it’s a bit hard to find because they put it under “Previews.” There’s also one playable level from each of Dragon’s Lair and Dragon’s Lair II, which is nice.
My only complaints are:
1. As another reviewer noted, the “Get me out of here!!!!” sequence is missing after Ace leaves the planet for the first time. It’s there when you play on Cadet level though.
2. I get a lot of stutter when the game seeks to a new scene. Sometimes I see the first few frames flash on the screen, then black, and this happens a few times before the scene plays. Could be an issue with my player.
Overall, I’m having a lot of fun playing the game and the purchase was well worth it.
