    Default Missile Command on Playstation?

    In Goodwill a few weeks back, I grabbed the Missile Command "remake" for Playstation. When I got home with it, I looked for some reviews online. I saw about half a dozen and all of them said pretty much the same thing, that the game wasn't any good. I figured sooner or later, I'd put it up in a sale thread here. Last night I finally got around to trying it, in advance of putting it up for sale. I come to find out that the game isn't half bad. I played the Classic and Ultimate versions on the disc and actually enjoyed those.

    Yeah, it wasn't perfect. It seems a little easy and repetitive at times. The analog stick makes your target move way too fast, I had to use the d-pad. Not much here pushing the PS either. Yet I like it. Looks like I am keeping it.

    I didn't see an appropriate thread with comments on this particular version. What did the rest of you think, particularly fans of Missile Command or even people who somehow got this one on Playstation without playing the original?

    I didn't think it was that bad either.

    I agree with you on the controls. The first few levels are relatively easy, then it speeds up and creates some challenge (for me at least). After a while, things get too fast compared to the way the aim is.

    Overall, it is something that I like and pull out from time to time.

    I felt many of those remakes weren't all that bad. I really liked Q*Bert and Asteroids.

    Wasn't there a trackball controller for the Playstation that this game worked with?

    Ditto, I was expecting the worst, but Space Invaders was amazing as well.

    I thought Missile Command for PSX was just a port of Missile Command 3D for Jaguar. Is that not the case?

    The Video Game Critic site seems to suggest they are two different versions but I am sure they have their similarities. I never played the Jaguar version and from the looks of the prices on Ebay, I won't be anytime soon.

    I do like the sound effect when the bases raise up before each round in the Classic Missile Command mode from the PSX version.
