Summary: Zack Zero stumbles through his adventure to save his beautiful girlfriend. Unfortunately, the game's puzzles are too simple and the story is never compelling. On the other hand, the graphics are incredible and there's a lot of variety to the stage backgrounds.
Excerpt: It’s so hard to create a good platforming game these days, just because of the legacy that other classics have lived up to. Think about it -- has anyone really made a game as good as the original Mega Man series (9 and 10 not withstanding, obviously)?
Problematic platforming and awkward action add up to crummy adventures for Zack Zero.

Summary: You may not have heard of Zack Zero, but you know the type: a hard-working space ranger who defends his planet against hostile aliens using his powerful supersuit and likes to take his lady on vacation.
Pros: Outdoor areas can be visually appealing
Cons: Rough movement mechanics, Flawed environmental design, Unbalanced combat, Banal story and awful voice acting, Constant, intrusive pop-ups
Summary: If the alliterative title Zack Zero makes you think of a bad '90s edutainment cartoon (whose mere existence is made even more egregious by the staggering amount of entirely JAWESOME '90s cartoons), then you actually already have some idea of what to expect.
