Gotta be slap fight on the speccy. Invisable bullets, say no more.

Or was it just a colour clash?

Resi Evil 1 - just can't understand that control system. And the lack of save points was criminal.

Super Star Wars/ESB/ROTJ on the Snes. A trilogy of the most singularly difficult unfair games put together. Virtually impossible to get through even when you had learnt the levels and knew what was coming.

For me it has to be the U.S version of Robocop 3 on the SNES. The game was so pap it was a joke. I never got past the first level. I think it was the second or third bad guy. He used to shoot before he came on screen so you couldnt shoot him or dodge his bullit. That game has to be the worst game ever made.

Any of the old platform games on the speccy could be pretty damn annoying. I remember spending hours (literally!) just trying to make one leap on Rainbow Islands.

EveryOnes A Wally used to frustrate me too. It looked like a really good and interesting game but neither me nor my friends could figure out what to do!

Yep, I've played it... twice. First time because a friend said they loved it, second time to see if it really was that bad. If you liked the masochistic Gods & Heroes (where platforms were invisible and you had to find them) then you'll love House of Usher...

Robotech Invasion onthe PS2. Quite how that steaming pile of poo can achieve a 74% at IGN is beyond me.
