If I had to
pick one item as the worst creation ever for the NES, it would have to be
the UForce. It folded up like a laptop computer, and was promoted as a
high tech "hands-free" controller... unfortunately it wasn't "suck-free".
Actor: "But this piece of shit doesn't even work!" Director: "We're not paying to think. Act damnit!"
commercial had me hook, line, and sinker. The guy made it look so much fun
as he waved his fists past the UForce. It appeared as though it worked
perfectly with the game. Believe me, it was the very opposite of
"perfect". Anytime I tried to use the thing, I ended up getting my ass
beat. I tried playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out with it, and I got my ass
handed to me by Glass Joe. GLASS JOE! If that doesn't explain the
level of SUCK that this controller had achieved, nothing else will.
thing left to do with a UForce controller, was drill a bunch of holes in
it and play a poor man's version of "Battleship" with somebody else who
was stupid enough to buy the damned thing.
