the only way i can see that touching a wall you die is if everything was faster and the speed we see it is in slowmotion like everything is fast as bullets and its in slowmotion (and you r fast 2) then you die by chashing into the wall >:(

Haha this one is a classic, I love how he draws on all the lines of fire, really gives an idea of how hard the game is
May 20, 2010 at 8:41 pm
A wall shouldn’t kill the Silver Surfer. He fought the Hulk for crissake!!!
June 14, 2010 at 8:32 am
LOL! ‘This game should have been classic but instead it’s worthless, it’s as fucking worthless as this LJN poster I have back here.’ XD
July 5, 2010 at 8:03 am
that game looks as tough as shoving a chicken up tour asshole
July 27, 2010 at 10:34 am
Oh no ! Here we go ! Too much shit !! I was laughing my lungs out at that point
I was born same day, same year then James and I’ve been trought the exact same path of video game frustration then him… His videos are a blessing and a therapy

Probably one of my favorite reviews. I had this game as a kid and yes..it is as hard as it looks. It’s soo unforgiving
August 30, 2010 at 8:57 pm
The part with the jack-o-lanterns…
Nothing is more depressing than seeing that one pumpkin jump up and get stuck on the stalactite and then make that sad face.
October 8, 2010 at 9:43 am
This is by far the best episode on the site.
October 14, 2010 at 11:26 pm
Thiss was the first video saw of you james..good’ol days and, ironically is still an classic.
October 20, 2010 at 4:16 pm
The other sad thing I find about this game is that it’s one of the few, or the only, Marvel Comic based game NOT developed by LJN.
December 16, 2010 at 6:46 pm
haven’t you noticed, that he’s “drinking” simple water out of his beer bottle. i think, that this bottle is like 4 years old hehe. with cinemassacre right from the very beginning.
February 28, 2011 at 12:17 pm
i must have seen this video about 20 times and i still laugh because i remember this piece of shit game to as a kid to..
April 11, 2011 at 1:06 pm
This was a very influential episode.
May 14, 2011 at 10:20 am
Thankfully, I never played this game before… and I sure as shite won’t now!
May 29, 2011 at 2:12 am
when the hell did u bring back the ability to watch episodes here at cinemassacre? hell fuckin yeah
July 13, 2011 at 1:59 am
the guy with the glasses looks like Bret Hart
August 7, 2011 at 12:35 am
7:00 dear god I can’t stop laughing!
August 21, 2011 at 9:49 pm
LOL ” it would be easyer to pick fly shit out of pepper while wearing boxing gloves ”… classic nerd episode
September 17, 2011 at 5:05 pm
This game is fun on emulator The last boss is a joke!
September 20, 2011 at 10:24 pm
Has anybody seen this speedrun? No hits. James, comments?
October 19, 2011 at 9:50 pm
You know what? They should make this on the Wii. Same game so it makes little kids cry.
November 25, 2011 at 6:33 am
The game itself is kind of fun, but you need to spend HOURS memorizing everything. Even then, you have it down so much it loses it’s appeal.
November 25, 2011 at 10:03 pm
In Fantastic 4 movie he was able to go through things (even with his board) which makes this way of death in game even more non-sence…
November 30, 2011 at 12:47 am
I find curious how the programmers were apparently trying to add some comic relief to the game, like the little rubber duck and the sad jack-o-lantern getting stabed.
I love that part where the Nerd does the same defeat pose as Silver Surfer, and the angry rant
Gotta love that in most episodes there’s always a comment or two claiming that “this is by far the best episode” or something like that. A true testament to James’ talent
December 17, 2011 at 2:42 am
hahaha i can’t stop watching this video!!!
January 21, 2012 at 12:10 pm
…yes! yes! YES!
February 3, 2012 at 9:57 pm
It’s funny that at 6:20 he didn’t drink rolling rock, but that lager beer that I can’t remember the name.

Just beat the game. No emulator, no cheats. Just a regular NES with a turbo controller (the FourScore’s turbo feature, to be exact). Took me 1h15 and 3 or 4 continues. The last boss was at least SOME challenge compared to most of the other bosses (some of these should be in the top 10 easiest video game bosses).
Maybe it helped that I live in Europe (50Hz) and there was no speed corrected port of Silver Surfer here so it played at 5/6 the speed (just a little slower).
Btw the ending suckt balls. You get some dialog which you can’t cancel (and takes ages) and then you see the Silver Surfer Logo (same as on title screen) with just “THE END” below and a (lame) spiral of stars in the background.
Watching your own shots helps a lot detecting walls. It’s so unclear at what is background and what is foreground. What were they thinking!?
March 3, 2012 at 5:54 pm
and the superior PAL color system makes it much easier distinguishing between enemy projectiles and the background (see 3:08) they are actually bright orange. Also, tube TVs rule.
March 5, 2012 at 3:12 am
its sad thy made silver surfer such a pussy. Hes so fuckin powerful he has the power of galactus. Hes fuckin pretty much unstoppable yet in this game fuckin walls and fish among alot of other stupid shit kill him. This is truely a shit load of fuck
March 19, 2012 at 9:14 am
@rush86 Silver Surfer got beat up and knocked out by a bunch of mexicans with pipes.
He IS pussy.
March 11, 2012 at 5:09 pm
Gonzo? Like the muppet?
March 14, 2012 at 4:23 am
“I CAN’T TOUCH THAT RED POT?!” lol
April 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm
@KoreyKleber You know, that sequel to Fantastic Four came out after he made this. I wonder what he thought when he saw Silver Surfer fly, at blinding speed, through a building? lol
March 23, 2012 at 11:16 pm
So many dead zones. Looks like a case for Anthony Micheal Hall.
March 27, 2012 at 9:07 am
You have to admit though, the music is badass.
April 23, 2012 at 10:06 pm
OH MY GOD! THERE’S SO MANY SHIT! SO MANY SHIT!!!
May 15, 2012 at 10:32 pm
YES YES NO awe SHIT!!! THAT GAME LOOKS HARDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!
June 3, 2012 at 7:33 pm
The Silver Surfer is my favorite super hero of all time. This review is completely on point. This video made me laugh so hard I was crying! I remember how incredibly hard it was way back when. I don’t think I’m brave enough to give it a try now.
June 5, 2012 at 11:25 am
this is definitely the greatest feat of achievement in gaming history- a silver surfer speed run.
team shizz: no-death silver surfer in 29:54
1. No Tool Assistance-played on a real console
2. this record is extremely difficult to beat even with tool assistance
3. NO TURBO BUTTONS USED
get the word out! everyone must know!
June 26, 2012 at 2:38 am
James did fairly well playing it, he got to the second stages of areas…I watched this one person on Youtube play it and they couldn’t make it passed the first level in any of the stages. In fact they did not progress very far at all once the stage started usually dying in the first wave of enemies.
September 22, 2012 at 3:05 am
My fav review and I’ve watched em all 1000 damn times. Perfect amount of anger. Good points about how pathetic the surfer is. Great finish hurling the game at the wall. Oh yea and right off the bat “Silver SHIT! He looks so STUPID!” You’re just relentless on this game
November 11, 2012 at 7:00 pm
James should come back to this one like he did other he didn’t finish. There’s code system to make you invulnerable, cut scenes, and secret levels!
November 21, 2012 at 3:53 pm
Every controller I had as a child had teeth marks in it because of this game. I use to love trying to beat this bitch though. It was kinda like what ghosts and goblins is to everyone else to me. I even use to use a game genie so that you were invincible but it didn’t work for the walls so i’d still flip the fuck out over it. I never beat it….i think i might just go try for the next hour and a half. No cheat codes, no save states, just you and me galactus you son of a bitch.
April 28, 2013 at 11:07 pm
C’on ths game is not bad but is very FUCKING hard
April 6, 2014 at 4:58 am
