Member the Green Ranger, member Zordon, member Rita, member the Red Ranger?
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle is obviously the byproduct of a development team that binge watched the original series while drinking barrels of wine made with member berries. I don’t mean all that in a negative way as this game is fun but it fails to capture the nostalgia factor.
The game takes fans back to the good ole’ days of the original show and when 2D beat-em up arcade games were king. Player pick one of the original Power Rangers then embark on a quest to stop Zordon and Rita from conquering Earth. The gameplay is simple, battle waves of putties then confront the main monster at the end of each level (just like in the show).
I want to say the game dose an excellent job at capturing nostalgia factor but the tacky visual design takes away the old school charm.
You don’t want to be dependent on nostalgia but the visual design makes the game look less like a cartoon and more like an overpriced browser game. Had the development tram used 32 bit style graphics then Mega Battle would have perfectly captured the feel of the classic SNES game.
Also the game lacks online multiplayer support, which means I need my friends in the same room with an extra control just to play together. Seriously, online support would have been so much better.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle is fun to play but don’t expect it to be anything like the classic SNES from back in the day. Also your better waiting for the price to drop before buying it at the PlayStation Store.
Final Score: 6/10
