The Final Word game review
Hudson Soft's latest installment in their long line of Adventure Island games is Hudson's Adventure Island 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This game is very similar in concept to the original, but Adventure Island 3 gives you an overhead view of the land where you will be traveling before each level. While this is a minor addition, it provides a deeper sense of story to the game. The gameplay is almost identical, and power-ups don't vary that much. Graphics are much sharper, and more colorful than the earlier editions. This really gave the game a big edge. To sum it up, I'd say Adventure Island 3 is an average NES game overall.
