Silver Surfer - The Hardest Game Ever [Vol. 2]

// Submitted @ 2:13 PM on 08.14.2007

Forget everything you thought you knew about the Silver Surfer or the Power Cosmic. Boot up Silver Surfer for NES. Be underwhelmed and angered.

If you did each of those steps as you read them, then you are probably wondering how I knew you would be underwhelmed and angered before I told you to be! Oh man! MARVEL COMICS!!

Seriously, where's Galactus?

You can't just forget what you know about the Silver Surfer because, dammit, he's kinda cool and really powerful. So when the first level starts and you are shooting little pellets at floaty random space bad guys, you are severely disappointed. Then when you realize you can't beat the first level in the first 50 tries, you get blindingly angry. Then you realize (if it were 1989) you just bought a game you can't play for more than 30 seconds because it is so hard you want to return R-Type Surfer as soon as you can.

I've never beaten the first level and I don't know anyone who has. And if you have - well then guess what? You're lying.

Then you get the power: Popular blogs may get homepage'd
