Home Alone is a 1991 video game developed by Bethesda Softworks and released by THQ for the NES, among other platforms. It is based on the movie of the same name.

Why it Sucks

  1. Very tedious gameplay. Kevin has to fight Harry and Marv with traps until the cops come to pick them up.
  2. Kevin is extremely slow in movement, while Harry and Marv move extremely fast, which makes the game ridiculously difficult.
    • To make things worse, walking the stairs makes Kevin move even slower.
  3. Horrible controls. Walking the stairs is also a chore, since you have to walk in front of them and then hold Up.
  4. The game can be completed in 20 MINUTES.
  5. No continues. If a burglar touches Kevin, you have to start the game from the very beginning.
  6. The game over screen shows Kevin screaming and a cloud saying: "Oh no!".
  7. Lack of an on-screen clock, so you can't see how much time is left unless you press the Start button.
  8. Lackluster animations.
  9. All the traps are just white squares with drawings on them.
  10. Terrible ending.
  11. Kevin can't exit the house or go to other places besides the treehouse.
  12. Terrible, monotonous and repetitive music that barely ever changes.
  13. Hideous graphics, with a very washed-out color palette and none of the characters looking like their movie counterparts.
