A playthrough of Gametek’s 1991 NES game, American Gladiators.
Oh man I love this game, almost as much as i used to love the show! In a rare turnabout, the NES version is far superior to any other AG game on any other platform. It’s a completely different game than the 16-bit versions, and because of this, it’s not a nigh unplayable mess. The controls work, it doesn’t require a manual to figure out how to do the simplest things, and this one has loads of digitized grunts and screams that have to be heard to be believed, and the music – man, is it good. It’s super bassy, loaded with tacky drum samples and insanely catchy music loops that don’t ever get old.
It’s certainly difficult (the wall on level 3 and 4!), but it’s FUN, and even better played with a friend.
Sorry for the reupload – I didn’t realize until the other one had posted that I uploaded the wrong recording!
