Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
One of the great toughies on the NES along with Castlevania 1 and 3, Mega Man series, and Battletoads. The gameplay is fluid and fast paced, and manages to make the difficulty enjoyable rather than frustrating. (Most of the time) You'll probably never beat this game but don't let that stop you from checking it out. It's a real blast. (not owned or completed, accurate score is 7.5)
