Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a video game made for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989. It was developed by Rare and published by LJN. It was based off the 1988 live-action/animated Disney and Steven Spielberg movie of the same name.

Why It Sucks

  1. Horrible driving stages due to incredibly slippery controls.
  2. The final boss, Judge Doom, is extremely frustrating to defeat, with a very erratic pattern.
    • In his second phase, he suddenly gets the ability to one-hit kill the player, regardless of how much stamina is left.
  3. Searching for items is far too slow.
  4. Overly long password system.
    • Moreover, there's a time limit to write down the password after getting a game over.
  5. To buy items, you need to select your wallet in order to get a random item to drop down, so to get the item you need, you have to keep leaving the store until you get the item you want.
  6. It is incredibly easy to get lost in this game because the game doesn't give hints on where you should be going next.
  7. Some enemies can kill you in one hit, but you can't tell which ones do until it's too late.
  8. Roger Rabbit follows Eddie around, but he doesn't do anything. In fact, he is below useless, as if he gets killed, the player dies along with him.
  9. The game's ending is very disappointing. After everything the game threw at you, you just get a text ending and that's it.
  10. It actually prevented Roger Rabbit on the Famicom Disk System that was developed and published by Kemco, a far better game, from being released in western markets; Kemco reskinned Roger Rabbit with Bugs Bunny. It became The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle in the US release.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The game's soundtrack composed by David Wise is actually good.
  2. There's a password to skip to the final boss: enter the password with just Z's.

Trivia

  • There was a phone number found in the game that would give the players tips on how to beat the game. However, when the Angry Video Game Nerd tried calling the number, he found out that it has since been reassigned to a sex hotline. Nowadays you can look it up on the internet which is pointless from this day forward.
  • There's a lost portion of the AVGN review, as seen on the Lost Media Wiki.
