SO WHATS DIFFERENT? The love story element was taken out, the Owl makes a cameo in which its thrown away like a piece of junk which pissed me off, there was no cape, no helmet of invisibility, Pegasus is pretty much non existent until the closing finale scene and the statue head scene which I was looking foward to seeing in CGI was gone and replaced with a scene resembling something out of Beuwolf. Another thing also is the cool destruction of Argos scene has been replaced by loads of silly winged bat people flying around.
OK so if you get round all that its not to bad, the special effects are top notch with mega Scorpions (which the good guys use as transport later in the movie which i thought was weird) the underworld looks pretty awesome and Medusa glides around a lot smoother. I see the other day that NECA have got the toy license for the franchise which then made me think how badass the original line from Mattel was
The set was pretty cool but was a bit strange in the fact that only four figures were made as if Mattel were somewhat reluctant in putting to much attention for a figure line for a blockbuster summer movie.
The main man Perseus has a good likeness and comes with a standard sword and shield that the rest have. Mattel forgot to put the accessories in with this one I think because the shield and the helmet are not here.
The winged horse Pegasus came boxed with a Perseus action figure and was a pretty cool model. End of the day it was a horse with wings that didn't move so that's all i can say on that really.
Calibos looks a bit shit to be honest looks like it was made in 10 minutes with no attention to detail. However though kids at the time didnt give a fuck because no action figures back then looked like any one they were supposed to. If you look at the Star Wars toys from back then Luke Skywalker had yellow hair and a yellow stick to follow.
Charon the ferryman was a badass action figure. I used to use mine as a grim reaper who would keep nicking my dead Gi Joes. Its wierd that they made this figure when the character isnt in the film for longer than 3 minutes I swear. Whats even more stranger is that Medusa was never made instead or a badass Mount Olympus playset with the gods or something as well.
Thallo the soldier was made instead of Princess Andromida because Mattel thought boys wouldn't want a girl action figure with a Kraken play set over a standard action figure. Well I've got news for Mattel YOU FUCKED UP!
Mattel did make the Kraken and he is so bad ass just look at him! However with no Princess for him to kill/rape of whatever and no Medusa's head to beat him......... whats the fucking point! Mattel proper fucked up on this franchise big time! With only one titan, four figures (two of which side characters) and Pegasus this is somewhat of a disaster when you look at it.
For such a mahoosive toy company and amazing film to have a toy series which has toys missing really upset me as a child because I love this movie so much.
Recently I found a catalog online from 1980 advertising playsets and accessories which were never made but the prototypes where advertised.
Seeing this pisses me off even more when you see the potential this line could have had! In this post I have slagged the shit out of Mattel but its because I like this shit and I wish they would have made more of it instead of a few figures and one monster. You can pick this shit up on ebay for ridiculous amounts now days!

While I'm on the subject doesent Maggie rhyme with Maddie? hell maybe the Mccans should take a leaf out of the Simpsons book and start whooping some ass instead of bitching in the papers! Anyways the plot of the game is Smithers (yes man of Mr. Burns the power-plant owner and Homers boss) has stolen Maggie because she caught hold of a diamond during a failed jewel heist. Ok he must be a nonce because why not just take the diamond off the baby and then leave her in a bin or something? why kidnap her as well? So there's our plot now Homer, Marge, Lisa and Bart must take to the streets of Springfield and beat their way to their child.
The game was developed by Konami (who made crime fighters in my last review) and is a four player which only uses two buttons for each player. This game is best enjoyed with four players as it does get a tad harder when more enemies are on the screen and it looks better having the whole Simpsons family battling it out.
The game has a few different levels to go through same amount as any arcade beat em up really. These include Krustys theme park, Moe's tavern, downtown Springfield, a grave yard, the woods, a dream world and finally Springfield power plant for the boss stage.
Most of the enemies in the game look like pedophiles wearing pink shirts and suits so its really fun to bash there heads in. Other enemies and bosses include a giant bowling ball, a giant Krusty balloon, a wrestler, a bear, a suicide bombing Smithers (who has a flasher jacket full of explosives) and finally Mr Burns in some giant robot suit.
The games visuals are pretty good for its time and there is quite a lot of voice recorded content in the sound effects which was always a plus for any game back then. Playing this game as a kid was always a thrill and yet you did get value for your credits but completing the game without at least paying a tenners worth of pound coins would be a nightmare of a challenge.
This game is the best Simpsons game ever made but when you look at the franchise's games on a whole that doesn't say much as every other Simpsons game released sucked! From Barts nightmare to the Simpsons wrestling this one is the only one worth playing.
