The Lone Ranger Review (1991 NES)

Based on the popular 1949 to 1957-TV series, The Lone Ranger is a one-of-a-kind RPG that successfully combines levels of exploration, side-scrolling action, and first-person shooting (with or without the Zapper light gun). The President has been kidnapped by Butch Cavendish’s gang, and it’s up to the Masked Man to save him. From the opening notes of the William Tell Overture to the dusty, Old West-themed graphics, the game does a great job of integrating the source material into an appropriate gameplay experience. Each of The Lone Ranger’s elements is surprisingly well executed, showing none of the mediocrity that tends to plague games attempting to cross genres. Fans of the franchise should find it especially enjoyable.
