Just what I was going to say! The opponents didn't seem very good at blocking at all. The only characters I had trouble getting through it with were Gon and Doctor B who, to be fair, weren't exactly easy to use effectively.

The original Tekken is rock-solid in comparison with Heihachi being a demon at the end.
Gon's the only Tekken "character" I've ever enjoyed playing with! It's easier with him, just keep doing that backflip thing, maybe ocassionally the face-farting thing. Simples!

Sonic 3D: Flickies Island MD


The special stages especially were a joke.

Yeah, the Special Stages were ridiculous, but I thought some of the bosses in that game were a tad evil, particularly the ones in Volcanic Valley, Gene Gadget and Final Fight Zone. Particularly!

Ah yes, I truly hated that boss. The rest of the game I am fine with, just that one boss caused me a great deal of grief!

Psycho Pigs UXB on the C64 was one of the few games I beat as a kid first go - still think its a laugh though!

I don't get the time to play games too much these days, so I like games that can be completed quite quickly. I recently picked up Eledees cheap for the Wii and completed it this morning - it only took five hours but that was spread over a couple of weeks so I don't feel ripped off. Completing a JRPG would take me literally years, which is why I don't play them (although I do still pull Baten Kaitos out for the odd session - I'm determined I'll beat it one day).

castle of illusion on the master system was very easy, got it for my birthday as a kid and completed it on my first go, bit gutted really but also quite proud for completing a game on my first go.

aladdin on the snes is soo easy, did that on my first go too. to the annoyance of my dad who bought me the snes one instead of the megadrive one, i told him in the shop that i would complete it straight away too but he didnt believe me.

alex kidd in shinobi world

im sure i used to be much better at games then, but then again i got lots more practise at them than the games nowadays with auto saves. not really much choice in them days.

Mega Man 2 seemed a bit easy... at least compared to the original.

Really struggling to think of too many easy games, I guess that's because I don't get to complete too many.

Sonic 1/2 was always very easy at least on the MD, the MS version was a bit harder. Castle of Illusion as mentioned, also World of Illusion took the censored, you couldn't fail to complete it first time, Donald's quest was a little tougher than Mickeys but still really easy.

Panzer dragoon Saga too easy and SHORT?

Well thats a new one. Easy games I have played, er gunstar heroes, easy but wonderfully fun but you can make it harder by not using the green homing gun. World of illusion, Streets of rage 1. all great games though

PDS is easy, even I (who suck at RPG's) completed it without any hassle (bar 1 boss fight near the end of disc 3) and compared to other RPG's is was pretty short to (20-25 Hours? and that was with exploring and getting most of the secrets)
