  1. A masterclass in how not to do a retro remake, from the graphics to the controls to the tedious difficulty.
  2. Some classics should remains where they belong--in our memories.
  3. Blaster Master: Overdrive trys to achieve old-school exploration and shooting, but lacks the polish and attention to achieve it. It wisely goes back to the original formula that made the series beloved, but doesn't do it justice.
  4. Not as good as it used to be. [Apr 2010, p.76]
