VC in Brief: Pit Stop II, The Last Ninja, and International Karate


Another Monday means another edition of VC in Brief, which is kind of like a guy talking over some retro games. Actually, that's exactly what this is! Man, when it comes to describing things, we take the cake. And then we eat that cake. And then we have a sugar crash.

Head past the break for more detail on these games, or simply watch the video above. Enjoy!

International Karate (C64, 1 - 2 players, 500 Wii Points)
We say: download it!

It's held up well, surprisingly, and is pretty fun, despite how old it is. Sure, sitting there and playing against the computer can get old fast, but if you have a friend, then it's a pretty fun time. You might want to check it out.

The Last Ninja (C64. 500 Wii Points)
We say: do not download

The biggest problem with this game is that the controls make things pretty tough. Moving the last ninja ever is kind of clumsy and the combat is definitely wanting. We'd say avoid this one.

Pit Stop II (C64, 1 -2 players, 500 Wii Points)
We say: do not download

While it may have been impressive when it released, Pit Stop II hasn't held up well. It's really monotonous and gets old fast. Even with a friend, it's little more than holding a button and steering left and right every now and then.

Every week, we like to check out what's new on the Virtual Console. We offer these videos as a sort of taste to help you decide whether or not you would want the game in question. We also toss in our own two cents because we're pushy jerks.
