So, does anyone else have game recommendations for the NES?  Trying to keep in mind titles that are more of exclusive to the system.  :)

No probs, also you might like Adventure Island, which is basically Wonderboy for the NES (the game Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest is based on), I am pretty sure I have reviewed it on here. And another quite similar game that is pretty decent is Joe & Mac Caveman Ninja, again I think I reviewed this.

Hmm, Adventure Island may be one to check then.  That Caveman Ninja sounds interesting too just based on that name!  LOL

I just looked, I have written reviews of both games as I thought.

At the risk of repeating, my list:

Faxanadu
Star Tropics
Super Mario Bros 2
Rolling Thunder
Kickle Cubicle
Karnov
Rygar
Arkanoid (get the Vaus controller, though)
Rad Racer (use the cheap red/blue 3D glasses in 3D mode and it is a nice experience)
A Boy and His Blob,Trouble on Blobolonia
Gauntlet

Does anyone have any recommendations for good PAL-only releases for NES? I have a region-free top loader and am looking for some games I have never experienced before.

Tried:

Elite
Dropzone
Rodland
Super Turrican


Think these are Pal only, but not overly familar with the NES.

Thanks for the recommendations.  I actually think Gauntlet II is better than Gauntlet on the NES, after trying both games.  :)

I'd like to put up a reccomendation for Vice: Project Doom, one of the later NES games.

NES Longplay [113] Vice Project Doom

So this is an action platformer in the style of Ninja Gaiden. The twist is that there's also a couple of SHMUP stages where you race down the highway in your awesome car, blowing crap up. There's also a couple of Operation Wolf style levels. It's a pretty polished effort, and while the majority of the game involves the 'on foot' scenes, it's still a good mix of game styles.

NES Longplay [247] Solstice

Solstice is a game for those of you among the 'wander around a bunch of isometric rooms and collect crap' persuasion. It also has music by Tim Follin, which I would honestly say is more of a reason to play the game than the gameplay. But hey, some people like these!

NES Longplay [183] Action in New York

Action in New York, or S.C.A.T as it was known in the US (Bet they'd regret THAT name) is a SHMUP by Natsume, a company who'd make a lot of really good games before being cursed to make a bunch of boring farming simulators for the rest of eternity. It's a little like FOrgotten Worlds, in that you control a character on a jetpack.

Actually, better idea. If anybody has a particular genre they're into, let me know I'll root around and see if I can find anything like that they might like.

Having now familiarised myself with the NES a bit, my suggestions would be:

Batman
Batman: Return of the Joker
Bomberman 2
Bucky O' Hare
Crisis Force
Darkwing Duck


The Batman games are ace. Bomberman is well, Bomberman. Bucky O' Hare is a game that I played at random because I watched the cartoon and found the game to be pretty good (but also really difficult). Crisis Force is a good shoot 'em up that I was actually able to finish. Darkwing Duck - well it's Darkwing Duck so it's just cool. I think I read somewhere that it's actually based on the Mega Man 5 engine so it does play a bit like a Mega Man game, but is so much better than any of the Mega Man games.

Cool video! It is nice that the NES has such a diverse library to allow everyone to have their own thoughts for a best top 5.

Great System!
