Haunted Halloween ’86 should be one of those modern-retro games that are very appealing to the 8-bit era lovers, even though they maybe didn’t even live it and at first glance it truly seems popped out by a NES. After playing it however my response is “Meh”. Titles like this should make gameplay of their strong points, but sincerely the game appear to be hollow and without soul. I have to say that maybe I expected too much from it, but I’ve never got involved by the story and in the end playing Hunted Halloween ’86 has almost been a burden. I’m sure there are many of you out there who liked it but I’m sorry this time I’m out of the bunch…


Haunted Halloween ’86 dovrebbe essere uno di quei giochi modern-retro che tanto piacciono ai fan dell’era 8-bit pur non avendola mai vissuta e ad un primo sguardo sembra veramente uscito da un NES. Dopo averlo giocato però il responso è “Meh”. Titoli del genere dovrebbero fare del gameplay il lor punto forte, ma sinceramente il gioco appare vuoto e senz’anima. C’è da dire che ero partito con aspettative forse troppo alte, ma non sono stato coinvolto dalla storia e alla fine giocare Haunted Halloween ’86 è stato quasi un peso. Sono sicuro che molti altri là fuori l’avranno gradito, ma mi dispiace non sono del gruppo stavolta…
