Synopsis: Now here's a classic that I remember playing when
I was six and I just remembered it recently. It was part of the classic arcade game that I have never played. Unfortunately, My hard drive was reformatted, resulting in the deletion of all my ROMs. Now on to the review...
Game Play: This racing game is about getting the best time much like S.T.U.N. Runner and ExciteBike except Hang-on wasn't in full 3D like some SMS games, but had a style similar to Pole Position. In other words, the game play remains intact from the conversion.
Graphics: While comparable to the SMS port of Space Harrier, they aren't as detailed as OutRun or many other SMS games. Therefore, they are pretty much average.
Music & Sound: I don't remember the game having any music, but it did have ambient sound back then.
Originality: Like I said, this is an arcade port even though there was one edition that had Safari Hunt.
This is one game that no SMS owner should be without, although this game was built in some versions of the first SMS power base(those who already have this game built-in don't need to buy it.). This game is a classic as well as Phantasy Star.
