Power Blazer VS Power Blade

<< More Changes


Power Blade was a NES video game that was released in America in 1991, by Taito. The game was released a year before in Japan (1990), with the name “Power Blazer”: the style was really different from the USA version, more “cute” and most of the levels were redesigned to appeal more to the american audience.. yeah, Americans really love bad dudes that look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator.

    Myself, I prefer the American version because it is simply more fun and enjoyable and not so unfair like Power Blazer is. How? Let me explain:

    1) Power Blazer is full of pixel perfect jumps you need to make just to get around and if you don’t get them the first time around, you either fall several screens or end up dying (in the game)! Power Blade does not do that.

    2) You can’t throw upwards with your boomerang in Power Blazer, while in Power Blade you can!

    3) Not to mention climbing ladders is a nightmare in Power Blazer! How could Power Blazer mess this up? Well, they did!

    4) Worse of all, there’s hardly any power ups to speak of to collect in Power Blazer and the ones I do get are “N” icons which take away the red boomerang power!

      That’s your opinion. For me, Power Blazer is perfect and that’s how it was supposed to.

      1) It is perfect for me because it is challenge and its harder. I am liking that. Power Blade is awful and ugly game. They should make their own game instead of use it as replace. Shame on America version! Lazy, I bet. Japan is doing a good job on Power Blazer.

      2) He can learn how to throw upwards with your boomerang in Power Blazer II if they want to but they never did. So it does make a sense to me why he isn’t able to throw upwards with your boomerang in the first game because he isn’t learning how to use it just yet.

      3) Not really, climbing ladders looks fine to me. Maybe it’s you or something.

      4) Because it is only a beginning.. They can if they wants to develop a Power Blazer II. As I said before he isn’t getting power ups yet because it was his first experience. Make senses to me.

      Power Blazer is a winner! Beautiful Japanese animated FMV, loved it!
