Our journey into FMV Hell gets even more horrifying as The Spoony One confronts the nefarious Rita Repulsa in the Sega CD game Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
It’s morphin’ time!
Old school Power Rangers were the shit, man.
wow, this takes me back
They were the only way to go. And that team never would’ve been complete without Bruce Campbell
The original Power Rangers kicked ass! But the newer generations are just sad. I mean “Ninja Force”?
Hey!, lay off the green ranger, he was awesome, he was so awesome that he just kinda became the leader overnight one day without ever actually having to challenge the red one for the authority…it just sorta happened gradually as everyone began acknowledging him as the leader for some reason.
…of course he ‘did’ randomly become the uber white-ranger of untouchable asskickingness which, while initially was pretty cool, did end up starting the series down its path of ridiculous idiot-plots and nonsensical ‘weird and new for the sake of weird and new’ crap like the alien rangers or that dude with the laser sword who got his own crappy spinoff for some reason.
Aside from that though, he ‘was’ the reason I loved that show as a kid.
I remember this
I hated it so much
You just mixed my two favorite things from my childhood, Power Rangers and Ocrina of Time. Thats…. freaking…. awesome!!
I stoped watching Power Rangers after the movie came out, Mighty Morphin’ are the only kind of rangers!
Dude, Colonel should TOTALLY come out of the screen and smack you for trying to skip cutscenes in MGS.
Also, is it just me or did you add a subtle little smoke squib effect when Marky-Mark shot you?
I think the green ranger fits into the dino thing because dragon’s are lizardish…and the mastodon and saber tooth are both extinct so…
Aren’t you Marky Mar- *BOOM*
Technically pterodactyls aren’t dinosaurs either.
Yes Bruce Campbel, Chuck Norris, Steven Segal, Jet Li, and Triple H would make the best power rangers team ever. I demand Hollywood gets on getting those men together for a show right now.
omg, totally agree with Ryan the Gamer, those would be awesome power rangers, i would watch it even if the rest of it was just as bad as the power rangers that are on nowadays, are they still actually on? i don’t watch tv much anymore so i don’t know,
I ROFL’d at the Saria’s Song part! :D
You know, they actually did make a side-scroller Power Rangers game for the NES. It’s KICK-ASS!
LOL that was funny personally i would played song of storms
Dude, what book store are you always shopping at that stocks all of this circa 1990-1995 games?
Dude, what book store are you always shopping at that stocks all of these circa 1990-1995 games?
damn this game sucks ass
HAHA! Thinking back… the first generation was pretty good. This game seems a bit like Guitar Hero… except instead of a stupid guitar, its watching power rangers battles. I guess the only thing you may get is to watch battles you enjoyed…
Chuckle at my “nerdiness”. I saw this and, realizing I had -never- seen the first episode, youtubed it. About 10 minutes in I was getting annoyed… AUTOMATONS CAN’T BE SENTIENT! BILLY IS A N00B! Those lines that made you think WTF if you ever watched the show HAD DIRECT CONTRADICTIONS IN THEM! Huzzah oxymorons!
i remember when i still watched power rangers but like spoony said they just change so quickley its hard to fallow the plot and the show had to many random exploshins
hehe…big giant head
3rd rock from the sun rocks
Did you buy that at Bookman’s? lol
Agh! My tiny arms!
I still don’t understand why so many people like Power Rangers so much. The first generation was like 90-95% dubbed over the original japanese version. The adaptated story contradicted itself and made no sense.
Who the hell is she, Frieza?
Power rangers has 17 seasons and is just an American version of a japanese show.
No Bulk and Skull?! Thats inexcuseable.
The messed up thing about Power Rangers is that, even though I never liked them, watching this still makes me happy and nostalgic. It was back when I hated the same things that everyone else did. Now? Flo Rida? You’ve lost me.
i alwas loved the power rangers season 1-4 they where the best ones they made i have all of them on dvd
i did see all the power rangers series after zeo all up tell rpm i do not like that at all
i really do not care for video games i do not do so well at them
Funny review, but dude, come on. You make a reference to Dead to Rights. Now THAT’S a shitty game you should review.
i love the bit with mgs but what i think you should say is this: imangine playing mgs2 and your trying to skip the codec sences only for solid snake to come through the screen point a gun at your chin and saying hey listen you listen to what he saids or your dead.
alpha ritas escaped bring me triple h, randy orton, rey mysterio, john cena, batista and the undertaker.
you could had used that but im not argueing about it im just saying.
Hey, I kind of liked those timing things in RE4 and Indigo Prophecy. >.<
Ah, hell, I can see why this game would tarnish those anyways.
Having Chuck Norris, Jet Li, Steven Sagal, Triple H, and Bruce Campbell definitely would have made the show a lot more interesting.
You just see Chuck Norris going Rambo on everyone, while Triple H whacks people with a Sledgehammer and Jet Li cuts them to bits with a sword, and ect.
Does anybody know what song he used at the end? I know I’ve heard it before!
I need scissors 61…I finally get the Wariro Review Joke..lol
The woman who played Rita Repulsa in the original series, Machiko Soga, died a few years ago after a long battle with cancer, may she rest in peace.
At the end, isn’t that the music from the movie Glory at the part where Matthew Broderick gets shot and dies?
Punishment for skipping cutscenes? Man, I’m glad Hideo Kojima didn’t see that.
Damn, I always hated Power Rangers, even as a kid…
This review is hilarious. I rewatch it everytime for the joke at 7:46 with Rita sippin on Gin and Juice. I swear if I could make that into my avatar I would.
just to point out pterodactyls weren’t dinosaurs ether so only the triceratops and t rex where.
When I was 5 I had a crush on Scorpina…… and she was in the green ranger story arc.
Power Rangers died for me around the time Turbo came out.
The nostalgia goggles people have on for the Power Rangers just astounds me. It was an awful, awful show.
Which is not to say I didn’t watch it as a kid, but I also watched Conan the Adventurer, James Bond Jr., Captain Planet, Widget the World Watcher, Full House, Family Matters, and probably a ton of other shitty shows.
Anyway. I had a Sega CD, but I was thankfully spared from playing this shitfest. Although the games I had weren’t really any better; they were mostly either other FMV games (like Sewer Shark and Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective) or upgraded ports of Genesis games (like Ecco: The Tides of Time and Sol-Feace). Although actually, the RedBook soundtracks to those games were pretty great.
In fact, you can probably count the number of good, original games on the Sega CD on your fingers. There’s Sonic CD, the Lunar games, and, uhm… I don’t know, does Willy Beamish count? (I never played that, but I heard it was decent.)
So yeah. I tend to maintain that Sega as a company simply made tons of terrible business decisions, and that their one success with the Genesis was only the purest luck.
This kinda got off-track, so let me just close by saying: Nice joerb.
Snatcher. The only English-language version of the game. It’s the only reason I held onto my Sega CD.
As a disclaimer to that last comment, let me add that I’m not saying Ecco or Sol-Feace were bad games; just that there wasn’t really much reason for there to be Sega CD versions of them.
Weren't there like 75 side-scrolling beat-em-ups based on Power Rangers? This one wanted to give us something… … … more.
I used to watch the original power rangers all the time when I was a kid. I too never made it past the first incarnation, but they were cheesy fun. I would still watch the original ones. I actually, played this “game” at a friends house when I was young..er. I remember liking it, so I bought it some time ago, and I still like it. It brings back memories of the show and my child hood. Plus, I liked quick-time button pressing for some odd reason.
hell yeah i would love to be on the same team with HHH and Bruce Campbell those two could save the world
yeah Bruce Campbell is fucking awesome
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPjB9sdgPN4 <— the silliest thing I've seen on a Super Sentai Show. I'm sorry if you don't like the Super Sentai, but if you ever had any questions about why the power rangers don't just get their zords out to stomp on the bad guys, well, here is your answer, I guess. And if you have seen this before, well, I do apologize for wasting your time.
It's like Heavy Rain, but not for pussies!
dood i played metal gear 2 and the colnol scenes scared the hhell out of me. it once said turn of ur xbox. that actually made me do it just 4 bein freaky.
xbox? you mean ps2?
It was ported to Xbox when MGS 2: Substance was released
the same difuclty thing happens on a sega gennasis called golden axe, u couldn't beat it on the easy mode.
the same difuclty thing happens on a sega gennasis called golden axe, u couldn’t beat it on the easy mode.
And the crazy thing was that the final boss was damn near impossible, at least in Golden Axe 2, unless you managed to kill the pre final bosses with absolutely no magic.
HOLY FUCKIN SHIT! I remember this game and i was about 9 or 10 when i played it. it was one of the 3 games i had for that system hahaha i still have my SONIC CD disc… its hanging on my wall. completely unuseable :< the third game was called WolfChild the only one of the three i ever beat was Sonic CD the first game to actualy feature METAL SONIC!!! GODDAMN THAT RACE WAS AWESOME!
Power Rangers however was totaly fucked and i dont remember playing that game very often i remember getting to the point where it said to play on the harder setting to finish the game and i just said FUCK THIS.
No Bulk and Skull?! That tears it, this game sucks!
Come to think of it, although they claim that the Power Rangers draw their powers from dinosaurs, out of the 6 of them only 2 are related to dinosaurs (the pterodactyl isn’t a dinosaur either). Well…they’re 1/3 right, anyway…
Don’t insult the power rangers they rule. It’s Morphin TIme!
GO GO Power Rangers!! lol HOnestly if I knew about that game back then I woulda begged my parents to get me that game! I USED TO LOVE THE POWER RANGERS!!! NOT now of course….lol
All I remember about the Power Rangers is that Amy Jo Johnson was smokin’.
I think I just Died laughing when I saw saria’s song xD
hey power rangers was based on Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger which was basically a primitive theme thing and sidenote noticed that the yellow ranger doesn’t have boobs in some scenes? in Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger the yellow ranger was a guy
DANCE FU!!!! WOOOOOOO
You know what’s cool is that a Rucka Rucka Ali song is a tribute to the Yellow Ranger and actually mentions the antagonist of the game.
OMG I used to watch this show when I was a kid. It was awesome then …..but like with most of the stuff from then if you go back and watch it now, you start to feel like more of a dork then you know you are.
Never played this game, I never had the Sega CD. My consoles were Nintendo, Sega, PlayStation, N64, PS2…. in that order -.- never had any cash as a kid so i got them all after they were no longer popular. I guess maybe that made me appreciate them more.
achem karate+taekwondo+gymnastics guys well for the fight scenes, cause i think spoony already knows the super sentai thing.
if he doesn’t, well super sentai started back in 1975 when goranger came out the first super sentai(taskforce)and then J.A.K.Q then battle fever j all the way until 2011 where now there’s 35 taskforces so far in the whole series and the 35th (Gokaiger) uses all the powers of the past taskforces but still have their own as space pirates by key morphers given to them by AkaRed a ranger that has all the powers of every single red ranger.
only till the 80s or 90s did america finally adapt zyuranger to power rangers but kept the fight scenes and changed everything else which is why yellow ranger doesn’t have boobs,cause yellow ranger is a guy in zyuranger
“Rita sends a monster, you kill it. Rita sends another monster, you kill it.”
Sounds like most episodes of Power Rangers.
really i thought it was in zyuranger “Monster appears,you kill it,green ranger(Burai) appears, you get your ass kicked,then get red ranger(Geki) to convince him to join your side,then fight final boss then green ranger(or Burai) dies.
I always thought that Power Rangers were giving kids seizures all over the world.
Try Supreme Warrior if you want an even more difficult FMV game. It’s just as fast if not faster, and it gives you no on screen cues.
The pink ranger was so hot back in the day. I also remember as a kid watching the cliff hanger episode where the Green Ranger has been of the show for a year or so. The rangers are in the biggest trouble they’ve ever been in, and the final episode of the last season the Green Ranger walks in and the vocal track music says “Go, Green Ranger, Go!” That was totally amazing as a kid. Thanks for reminding me of those fun times, Noah!
super sentai > power rangers
And being kicked once in the balls > being kicked twice in the balls. That doesn’t make either of them desirable except to some very weird people.
The guy who played Skull went on to get his Doctorate in Shakespearean drama and is now a professor and a really high brow university in California. I blew my mind. :p
that movie clip that spoony used to introduce the next FMV review, what is that from?
At the end of this reveiw, when hes introduceing the make my video thing, what is the movie clip from?
I laughed way too long at the Saria’s Song reference.
I loved the cutscenes in RE4 where you had to press the right button at the right time. It was very refreshing to actually have interactive cutscenes where you actually felt you did something, instead of just watching a lot of awesome stunts where you had no power to control the outcome.
DRAGONZORD! wait…what? not in this game? fuck this, i quit….wait he is? GAME ON!
if you get Netflix or know anywhere else to get them, i suggest the In Space series. It may not be the best, but it didn’t get any better afterward, and i think has the best conclusion to the series. opinions.
I always lose it at Dance Fu. I dunno why XD
I remember when the original power rangers was on the air. But I “remember more” the naked pictures of the pink power ranger my brother showed me back in the days of floppy disks and dial up, lol..
Technically, the Pterodactyl isn’t a dinosaur either.
oddly enough the original Japanese version Pink was the ONLY female.
Um, re-watching the series right now, and there has been more then one occasion where the episode focuses on Kimberly, and at least one instance where her power bow is needed to win the fight. Hell, she isn’t any less important to the story as Trini and Zach, although maybe their zords are a bit more useful. If you want to get picky, only Billy, Jason, and Tommy are needed to push the story. Billy makes all the extra tech they have, Jason leads the team, and Tommy is the powerhouse and also the main focus of the major story arcs.
Oh god. I remember the last FMV games I played. Strahl, and Mad Dog McCree.. The first was challenging. The second was fucking impossible due to the lack of any visible prompts of who you’re supposed to shoot first. Someone draws his gun. You try to shoot him, but it turns out you were supposed to shoot the guy minding his own business FIRST for some retarded reason.
2:01 : My OMG thank-you-so-much-that-was-genius moment of the week. Awesome.
In ancient times, people who came across dinosaur bones assumes they were dragons, both in Asian & Europe.
….I know you’re a troll, but I just can’t help myself. It’s Asia, not Asian, people from ASIA are ASIAN….
this review … i like it. ANother! :smashes laptop:
The Black Ranger had some serious moves.
videos are buged
I find the fact you called them Time Rangers amuses me.
Wait… they had QTE before Shenmue?
The dragonzord is Godzilla. How does Godzilla NOT fit in with dinosaurs?
ii gotta admit, the bulk and skull duo were hilarious.
did… did this game just invent quick time events?!
QTEs had been around for AGES before games like this.
Look up Dragon’s Lair…
Love the 3rd Rock From The Sun reference.
Hey spoony, if you were curious about dragons, the original word used for dinosaur is dragon.
How lame is it that I immediately recognized the music at the end from Glory?
