Microsoft: The Best of Entertainment Pack (or simply Microsoft Entertainment Pack) is a multicart which contains seven simple games from the Microsoft Entertainment Pack series, released for the Game Boy Color in 2001, developed by Saffire, and published by Classified games in North America and Cryo Interactive in Europe. It is a port of the 1995 PC game of the same name (a compilation of games from the MS Entertainment Pack series). The same company also made the GBC port of Microsoft Pinball Arcade.
Why It Sucks
- Terribly stripped down variety of games on the GBC version, most part of it is card games and some of the games from the original were not even included in this version, mostly due to licensing problems (Chip's Challenge belonged to Epyx, before they were bought by Bridgestone Multimedia Group in 1996, while Rodent's Revenge and Jezzball were clones of Beast and Qix, respectively).
- Poor graphics.
- Terrible, repetitive soundtrack.
- Horrible controls on Skifree that lead the player to crash on pretty much everything.
- Lack of sound effects.
- LifeGenesis doesn't even follow the gameplay of the actual game.
- On Skifree, if the player touches any sprite of a skier, the skier turns into a dog.
- If you win on any of the card games, you will get an image of an anthropomorphic card on a mountain, which makes no sense at all.
