Review by Jason Nimer:
"Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Those four words are all it took to get me interested in Monster Madness. If that doesn't make any sense, I assure you that my neighbors are alive and well; Zombies Ate My Neighbors was an SNES game in which you chose one or two (or maybe three) characters and blasted through suburbia with crazy weapons and all the while, a never-ending army of zombies tried to get at your brain. The game achieved cult status during the 16-bit era and fans still continue to discuss its greatness to this day. A friend and I literally played the game for an entire summer and it never got stale. Even now, my SNES is still hooked up, and the zombies hold a semi-permanent spot in the system. So, I was understandably psyched for what was billed as a spiritual sequel – Monster Madness. Also understandably, when I played through the game and it didn't live up to it's lofty younger brother, it was more of a letdown to me than all the other sub-par sequels in recent memory."
