|Title: MC Kids
Rom Player: Nester
Synopsis: Licensed games... While there HAVE been some good ones, like Goldeneye, most suck. And even some with some great material sucked. So what happens when you take McDonalds, home of the greaseburger, and give it a game? Well, not what you may be expecting.
Gameplay : While not UNIQUE, the gameplay here actually works pretty well. There are 6 or so worlds you have to work through, with a special bonus world if you find all the cards for each level. Of course, Ronald and all his weird pals are here. You see, the Hamburglar has run off with Ronald's "Magic Bag". Iím not gonna ask what KIND of magic is in this bag, but at any rate Ronald feels it is important enough that you should risk your young little life to get it back. You advance in this game by finding cards hidden throughout the levels. In each level, you see, one of Ronald's friends will ask you to bring back a certain number of these cards. Do so, and you get one step closer to catching the Hamburglar. Seriously, the guy is a self-described criminal. Why don't they just lock him up for goodness sakes? Suppose that'd make for a boring game though, but if you got to order around the firing squad, that might be cool. There are two characters you can pick from, a little white/Asian kid, and a little black kid. I always pick the black kid, because that little white kid always looked like a dork to me... but I will let you hold your opinions about that issue. You know, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with greasy fast food. I mean, I don't even think you see a HAMBURGER or FRENCH FRY during the whole course of the game, unless the last secret level is some sort of deep-fried utopia. I guess the secret to making a good licensed game is the completely ignore the license...
Graphics : Colorful, fluid, sorta resembling what they mean to resemble... what more can you ask for? Well, a side of fries, but besides that. The graphics fit just fine in my opinion.
Music : Hmm... in a word, "Bubbly". Thatís what I always think when I hear it. It's actually pretty decent.
Originality : In a licensed game? No. But, hey, at least it's done well. And the whole block-throwing thing isn't a COMPLETE knock-off
Overall : Well, this is definitely one of the best licensed games ever. I recommend you play it. It is the best time you can have with McDonalds and not have a heart attack!
Best Cheats: None that I know of...
