    Considering that video was from his first season, it's very possible that he was over-exaggerating the problem so that it would make for good video. He used to do that a lot in his early days; die on purpose or make things look harder than they were. He doesn't really do that anymore.

    In the DOS version, there's a jump right around there that is quite literally impossible but why the heck would anyone play the DOS version?

    Yeah, the nerd clearly can get past that section since he shows later levels in his Revisiting video. His early reviews kind of annoy me because he's so obviously faking the difficulty... especially since the same people who are okay with it when Rolfe does it will immediately use this same thing against any other angry reviewer.

    I've heard that Silver Surfer is actually pathetically easy.

    I understand he is playing a character and that is fine, but I just dont understand why so many people hate on the first turtles game. Yeah it can be tricky if you dont know what to do but with a little practice its easily beatable. Its not that long of a game. Its my favorite turtles game on the nes.

    It's actually not as hard as the Nerd made it out to be. It's hard and flawed, don't get me wrong, but as far as bullet hell type games go, it's not that bad. And I'm not that good at bullet hells either.

    Well I had not played it in awhile, so I went and I just played it for about 30 minutes. Its not impossible, its just hard. I guess the main issue is you die after one hit and the enemies move rather quickly. It kinda makes a frustrating experience dieing so much. If you could take one hit the game would be alot better.

    I recall someone on Shmups saying recently that they found Silver Surfer easy. That's all I know. Most of what Nerd says goes for most shmups

    I don't know if this was brought up, but another game he exaggerated the difficulty on was Karate Kid for NES it was one of his very first episodes. I haven't personally played it but the Game Grumps played through it with no problem and they are no experts in gaming.

    Yeah, I knew about that one. You can kinda tell when you go back and watch the video again.

    He actually said in one of his videos that one of his biggest regrets in his earlier stuff was the over-exaggeration of difficulty, dying on purpose, etc. He said at some point his gameplay became 100% authentic.

    Say what??? Karate Kid was aggravatingly near impossible when I was young. Yeah okay maybe an adult player can figure it out easier, I don't know. Part of what James does is to let the viewer reminisce about his and their childhoods. James clearly played Karate Kid many years ago as a kid, and found it brutally difficult, as I did.

    never played karate kid until today and it honestly wasn't that hard (played it on virtualnes just because of this thread). I got past the storm level.

    Not that hard.

    I use to have something similar called Consumers Distributing which is in Canada. Now defunct, I should of kept them but I didn't care really and even my mom regrets throwing them out. I do have something from the late 70s or early 80s from another dept store that has Atari and Colecovision, I think..

    I think that was the first Game Theory episode I've watched, and I don't think I'll be watching another. Ugh.

    And I totally remember those catalogs. Not the guns, though. Maybe Sears couldn't do that in Canada?

    Besides Sears other similar books were from Service Merchandise and Consumers. May well have been the same Consumers company as in Canada.

    I had heard this was a terrible game, but I had no idea how bad it really was. It's amazing that someone would release a game so largely unfinished.
