    WOOHOO !!

    Love it !!

    Thanks Mr Rolfe !

    This deserved a re-review. Must have been really hard on you though, considering your reactions in the original video.

    The last part of the review blew my mind !!! I’m gonna need some firewater to help me get over it ! Another great episode. Good job James!

    YES!!! Great review James.

  • October 7, 2010 at 12:21 am

    Awesome! I’m sure if Robert Louis Stevenson could watch this video he would do something about this wretched anal abomination of a game. Excellent social commentary at the end too, one of your best to date!

      i was almost convinced to like the game at the very end.. it made me think for a second…said no one ever. ;) awesome review. one of my favorites. its too bad because this could of been a great game, the book is amazing.

  • Lanlost

    October 7, 2010 at 12:26 am

    I saw this pop up while watching Monster Madness… for the fact that Toukz says “one of your best to date” I’m quite excited.

    Now only if GameTrailers would stop saying it’s one minute long and keep going “Video buffering” – playing ” Video buffering” 20 times a second.

    Ah refreshing it worked..

  • SquirrelCheese

    October 7, 2010 at 12:30 am

    oh my god. this is a great surprise. i am very happy now.

  • Josh7289

    Perfect shot in the ending.

    It’s also scary how much your analysis actually fits, haha.

  • LCmiracle

    October 7, 2010 at 12:37 am

    BTW, is this the halloween special? Or is the special gonna be a 2-parter? Like “Friday the 13th” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street” or “Atari’s Texas Chainsaw massacre” and “Halloween” for Atari, “Dracula Games” and “Frankenstein Games”? Or, is it gonna be Castlevania-thon ?
    I mean, it is really unsatisfying to have only one AVGN halloween special…
    So Mr.James, I know you’re busy working on Monster Madness 2010. But please, give us more surprise in Halloween!

    James,

    I just want you to know that drinking water instead of beer kills a lot of magic into your recent reviews.

  • sugarmice

    October 7, 2010 at 12:46 am

    This has to be one the best AVGN videos so far! That was really funny

  • WillWill

    October 7, 2010 at 12:47 am

    Fuck yeah!

    October is like Christmastime around Cinemassacre! I love this time of year!

  • Morris

    October 7, 2010 at 12:49 am

    Okay, this is now my #1 Nerd video of all time. The Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde is a legend because of the nerd. My copy of this game is coming in the mail. I’m sorry the Nerd! I just had to experience it for myself!

  • sugarmice

    October 7, 2010 at 12:49 am

    also, BIG thanks to James and Mike for putting this during monster madness. Can’t even start to imagine how busy they must be right now!

  • October 7, 2010 at 12:50 am

    I plan to enjoy my favorite beer while watching my favorite web series. Thanks James!

  • SuperANima

    October 7, 2010 at 12:51 am

    Hahaha. I was right that this would be the next game to be reviewed :D I even commented on the last AVGN episode.

  • Lanlost

    October 7, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Alright, after seeing this.. I’m not sure what anyone could say about it negatively. It literally has it all.

    I’ve always liked the fact that James has fun with his reviews but puts care into every detail at the same time. The fact that he actually gives CORRECT insight and does his research.

    But a lot of people simply like his swearing. Hell, it’s been copied in every knock-off reviewer that is out there. This alone does not a good video make.

    I’m not offended by the swearing at all. I swear like a sailer at times. I don’t, however, find it fall on the floor funny and a lot of times makes me raise an eyebrow. There are times though that he starts on a tirade that seems natural instead of forced and there to be there and THIS is when it’s hilarious.

    This video had both parts in equal dosage that added up to supreme awesomeness. Great stuff.

  • You Can Just Walk Over It

    October 7, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Lots of hilarious moments in this. The ending shot was exactly the same angle on the head from the first Jekyll video. Taking the game out from the Nintoaster several times for suspense worked on many levels. Even after Hyde Nerd said Robert Louis Stevenson ruined his life, he seemed to march off to the left in a hilarious fashion. Very small things that just add up many times over.

    The revelation / epiphany at the end explaining the game being perfect probably caught everyone off guard with how detailed and consistently funny it was because from a certain point of view it really has some truth to it.

    I’m getting pwned by Billy Pones!

  • October 7, 2010 at 1:03 am

    I actually owned this piece of fuck as a kid and watching this video was one of the most cathartic experiences I’ve had. James, you’re a fuckin’ genius! :D

  • October 7, 2010 at 1:04 am

    that kicked ass..I loved it!!

  • Analbag Thats Me

    October 7, 2010 at 1:05 am

    I KNEW this was gonna be next!!!! HOORAYYYYY!!!! lol

  • October 7, 2010 at 1:07 am

    I knew it was going to be this game all along. I just wish at the end, he destroys it. But he just ends it saying it fucking sucks. It did go into greater detail this time of course I expected that, but I expected him to destroy the game… or bury it. Why didn’t he? “Smash it! Smash it with a hammer until the fragments are invisible!” Check this youtube video out. You too, Nerd! You should’ve done this if it’d make you feel better and angrier too. Great vid btw. Anyway, just check it…

    One of your best reviews ever. Knew you were reviewing it again because of last month. Stayed up waiting for it to be uploaded. Knew it was gonna be tonight. “I’m getting pwned by Billy Powns”. I probably haven’t laughed that hard at any of your reviews ever. Another brilliant review James.

  • Snesman64

    October 7, 2010 at 1:14 am

    I’ve been waiting a long time for you to revisit Jekyll and Hyde. The original was really ,really poorly done. You don’t die “for no reason”, and I’m glad this new review finally addresses that fact. Still, this was a bit heavy on the filler and I was hoping you’d show the two different endings. Oh well. Better luck next time.

  • recompile

    October 7, 2010 at 1:21 am

    I loved the exegesis at the end. Hilarious.

  • October 7, 2010 at 1:22 am

    This was absolutely amazing! This is the way it had to be. I think the long explanation had a good point to it, but the sad part is that’s not what Soho was going for, so it’s all lost. I loved this video, and I actually enjoy playing Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde…in a weird masochist kind of way though.

  • segagamer62

    October 7, 2010 at 1:27 am

    awesome how he too the time to think of the conclusion of why the game was bad. i wish he would do an overall review of his opionion on sega growing up but great job

  • October 7, 2010 at 1:29 am

    James, great episode. I laughed my ass off the whole time. The ending was awesome. Probably one of your best endings ever. Great work!

  • GoldRoger

    October 7, 2010 at 1:32 am

    Oh God I laughed so hard when you showed the bird turd falling on the pissing statue.

    October 7, 2010 at 2:12 am

    The final monologue in this episode is pretty crazy in that it kinda makes sense. I wonder how much time James spent trying to make sense of the game.

  • October 7, 2010 at 2:22 am

    Well we saw the Victorian Era pretty much end with Jack the Ripper, so maybe your analysis wasn’t too far off.

  • rushnerd

    October 7, 2010 at 2:22 am

    I registered just for this video, been watching James all this year and I know he reads these comments.

    EPIC JOB, I can tell you really put your heart into this one, I loved the psychology at the end so much, I mean that really took some original thinking. This is by far one of your best pieces you’ve done. And the Billy Powns line was one of the funniest things you’ve ever said, bravo.

  • zmakingmagic

    October 7, 2010 at 2:36 am

    Amazingly hilarious eview James! You rock!

  • Analbag Thats Me

    October 7, 2010 at 2:44 am

    This is the best review you’ve done for a while James…maybe even your greatest AVGN episode of all time. Hysterical and down to the basics that made the character so great. The metaphorically delusional rant at the end is inspired….this is a masterpiece.

  • Zentu

    October 7, 2010 at 2:47 am

    Excelent! Zentu is Pleased. – But enough of the 3rd person babble, As much as the game makes sense in the fact as Jekel, you can’t do evil things. Woulden’t you know….Theres ACTUALLY 2 different endings for this game? (I watch YouTube Vids of games) The End Boss……yea, dosen’t make much sense. not to me anyway.

  • October 7, 2010 at 2:49 am

    WOW. The Hyde scene was really professional for an internet video, holy shit. And the explanation at the end was so crazy that it actually makes sense.

  • October 7, 2010 at 3:21 am

    Wow, it’s happening. I can’t really watch this without the damn flash plug in crashing every 5 minutes.

  • MirrorsFaith

    October 7, 2010 at 3:22 am

    I knew that this one was next.

  • October 7, 2010 at 3:57 am

    For the first time in my life I plated this game on you tube and for some strange reason watching an ‘expert’ play it, well it kinda made sense http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/vizzedindex.php?ref=65348

  • Red_Machine

    October 7, 2010 at 4:36 am

    Holy crap, you followed my suggestion! I’m honoured.

  • October 7, 2010 at 4:42 am

    Great work! Finally we got a real in depth explanation why we never should play this awful game.

  • windowlicker

    October 7, 2010 at 4:54 am

    I honestly can’t say which articulation was better — the winded, philosophical filibuster… or the earnest, straightforward statement at the very end.

    Amazing review in every direction!

  • takaplus

    October 7, 2010 at 5:14 am

    Brilliant Episode!
    But this game looks kinda interesting… reminds of the silent hill scheme somehow.
    Anyway, Mr. Rolfe: Your Videos (and especially Episodes like this one) are so well made, that viewing them is to transcent body and time and entering a realm of total entertainment.

  • Ubersnuber

    October 7, 2010 at 5:26 am

    I actually didn’t like this one.
    Just felt hollow and uninspired.

  • October 7, 2010 at 5:40 am

    Love the ending with the close-up face just like the original.

  • Schloss Ritter

    October 7, 2010 at 6:01 am

    Of course you would revisit this abomination for Halloween, heh.

    Had to break out the hard booze, eh?

  • October 7, 2010 at 6:01 am

    Cool review, just played the game and beat a few levels, I noticed the bombs won’t hurt you if you just keep walking and don’t jump or turn, and you have to pay the singing lady coins to let you by. The manual does give a reason for each of the characters being angry, but mostly it’s not personal, they are just crabby. Once you get the hang of the game it’s not that bad, it is playable.

  • TheBaron

    October 7, 2010 at 6:08 am

    I had to register just to post this, because I am so amazed that you actually did make a AVGN episode, even while doing the monster madness. Fucking awesome job!

  • M3n747

    October 7, 2010 at 6:20 am

    Great episode! :D

    Just one question, though – why are you still making videos in fullscreen in 2010?

  • angelspawn77

    October 7, 2010 at 6:57 am

    Good episode James. Back in your last episode when you said you had another game you were thinking about, I honestly thought you were talking about Superman 64. You went over it, but mostly only the beginning, after that there are different missions if I recall where you’re in a town or something, you missed quite a bit from that game and there is also a multiplayer mode on superman which I used to play with my cousins at times.

  • Gin231

    October 7, 2010 at 6:58 am

    Take out the Last 2 minutes or so, and that’s what I call, an Angry Video Game Nerd.

    By the way, I liked the game. Then again, I knew how to play it because I looked it up on Wikipedia, and my impression of it was not tainted by his review (his first one) because I knew he wasn’t being fair. Anyway, this was hilarious.

  • slasherfan

    October 7, 2010 at 7:01 am

  • algiuzas

    October 7, 2010 at 7:31 am

    You know from where I unterstand it’s fake. Nobody leave full bottle of wiskey on the edge of the couch. It just fucking crazy, who do what. Really? Full bottle? Full fucking bottle, just waiting to be broken and spill all over the floor. It is maddnes I tell you. It was the most terrible part of this video, maybe all your videos. It was scary to watch. Will this bottle broke or not? Dude, if I have such a bottle of wiskey, first thing I am going to do, is bottle off this wiskey into plastic tare. And if it will be a beer(I mean good european beer, not that shit you drinking. There is a good phrase about american beer: American beer is like having sex in a boat. It’s fucking close to water.) I save it like my own child. Its just blows my mind. Who do that? Nobody, that’s who. You are puting drinking a lot in your videos, but you just have shown, that you have no fucking clue how the real men drinks and that it means to so many people. Here in eastern europe it is like a religion, like a ritual or call it what ever you want. You should do an euro trip some day to taste some german or cezch or lithuanian beer for once. You will never want that shity beer again. Peace, algiuzas out.

    The 1932 version of this film was on TCM on Tuesday night, and while I loved watching the film (because it’s incredible) I couldn’t help but think of your review, and now I see you revisitied it LOL!

    Irony? Or did you also see the film Tuesday?

  • October 7, 2010 at 8:08 am

    HAHAHA!!! one of the best nerd episodes ever!!!

  • Gavie

    October 7, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Great video, especially loved the bullshit theory at the end

    Btw: To save bandwith: you should cut down the resolution of the title image in this post. It’s scaled down but the source image is still huge, forcing all visitors to download the full image.

  • SplashWoman

    October 7, 2010 at 8:57 am

    I thoroughly agree with Gavie on the whole image needing to be legitimately shrunken issue. To make matters worse, the way the image was scaled through HTML actually distorts the aspect ratio of the image too. You certainly don’t have to use it, but I scaled the image down to 600×400, and it’s less than an eleventh the size of the full image here.

    Classic Nerd. Great episode! :-D

  • October 7, 2010 at 11:10 am

    James, this episode was AMAZING. That skeleton animation was absolutely HILARIOUS! This review is the perfect combination between comedy and reviewing that I’ve always loved in nerd videos. It may not be the longest nerd video but it sure feels like one of them because of the balance!

    Great job!

  • October 7, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Another great one James.
    Did you know that the statue actually EXIST irl!?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manneke_Pis

    Its in Belgium, Brussel. But I would not advice you to go there
    cause… well, its a bit smelly… I dont blame him but apperently its the most ironic icon I ever seen in a city which smells like piss at every corner of the street…

    October 7, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    Great Review! I swear to never play this game so long as I live.

    I was kind of hoping you’d cover “R.O.B.” as something you were going to come back to though… since it’s been quite a while since your accessories review =p

  • darkknightdetec

    October 7, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    This was one of the best episodes in a long time! Hilarious! I really actually like this once-a-month thing: your episodes seem much much more inspired than they were when you were trying to constantly pump out episodes.

  • furtivefox

    October 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    Oh my. I had to comment on the rant at the end. That was pure awesomeness. It makes sense, and then “OR…. This game just $#*%ing sucks.!” Love it. Great work.

  • WatchmenFTW

    October 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    You know James, I thought that the game review you’d be doing in AVGN: The Movie (if it gets made), would be the extended version of this one.
    But great review. Every great fictional character has an arch enemy, Sherlock Holmes has Prof. Moriarty, Batman has the Joker…

    …and the AVGN has the Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for the NES!!!! It’s so evil, it has a mind of it’s own.

  • October 7, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    Hahaha, the part where the Nerd goes “Because this game is CERTAINLY a very STRANGE CASE indeed” had me laughing for an hour XD

  • October 7, 2010 at 12:37 pm

  • October 7, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Ah, Robert Louis Stevenson’s skeleton flipping the chopper. That’s something I never thought I’d see.
    This was a good episode which contained all the elements of a classic Nerd episode, even if it’s not quite the best. Well done, enjoyed it.
    Back to Monster Madness…

  • Drain

    October 7, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    I thought I would mention that there’s a new game for Jekyll and Hyde, and trust me, it isn’t any better than this piece of shit. At least the old one had age to blame, before standards were set. These days you expect modern standards, and even most bad games meet them.

    By new I actually mean new, September or so of 2010. I recently put up a written review for it on IGN.(And apparently I was the only guy in the world that could stand it long enough to do it, not even IGN reviewed this pigshit of a game.) The 2010 Jekyll and Hyde game.
    http://readerreviews.ign.com/rrview/tv/jekyll_hyde/028833/128976/
    It’s so bad they didn’t even put up the box cover image for the game. There’s just blank “Box art not available” pictures. That alone is a legendary find…

    Out of several dozen or so written reviews, this was the only one I bickered so much at the start of. It was the worst modern game I ever touched and this game PISSED ME OFF to no end. It’s only written, but you can still read about why this game is garbage, or go get it yourself and see. I only posted this because it seemed relevant being a Jekyll and Hyde game, which no one seems to know about or realize exists, and worst of all, it’s NEW, but still really fucking bad.

    HOLLY SHIT!! i guest right :D im surprised you did an episode this month i thought you’d be busy with monster madness

  • Butch Bitch

    October 7, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Great job, James! I laughed when you delayed putting the cartridge into the Nintoaster several times, and the pissing statue and shitting bird says it all. I’d never thought I would see a skeleton flipping the bird, let alone Robert Louis Stevenson’s . But my favorite part was the whole philosophical speech at the end, not only did it somehow make sense, but it was true to the theme of the game and novel.

    I’m really glad you did take time out to make this video, James. I was just sitting there during the last couple minutes going, “Wait for it, waiiiiiiiit for it…” and then came the “It’s shit,” just like I knew it would. And I still laughed my ass off- your waxing happy philosophy followed by that 180 about did me in, even though I knew it was coming.

    These aren’t unique comments: The skeleton had me rolling, though it did actually surprise me that you didn’t beat R. L. into powder with that nifty cane. My only problem with the video: I wanted to hear about the French puppies from 1951! Is that one of the horror movies you’re covering this month? :D

    How did we know this was going to be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? :P

    Now that you have played and reviewed the game in much greater detail, don’t the sound effects sound like some other game like, um, Bible Buffet or other unlicensed games?

    awesome!

    October 7, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    i like the review n yes the game sucks bt i like to see more You know whats bullshit, sure after the monster madness can wait to see more anyway good jod keep it up

  • October 7, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    Your original review was actually one of my favorite videos of yours. For me, the whole joke and humor out of it is that you really don’t even talk about the game or review it at all. You just rant about how horrible it is for the whole 7 minutes or so! It’s like you could just edit the video a little to make it so you’re talking about another bad game, for example Shaq Fu. It was comedy GOLD. I haven’t watched this version yet, but believe me, I’m glad you’re doing it justice now, this game deserves TWO reviews! :) (Though it’s not all that bad IMHO)

  • Lesley M.

    October 7, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    YAYYYYY!!! When I saw the purple suit in the last episode I had high hopes that this would be the next game! Well done! I love the new 1 episode a month thing. The episodes are much more epic. Well done all around.

  • October 7, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    to be fair after watching this episode again, the humour had dun out, you should have stuck to the original episode and then reviewed another game, this was not your best, im sorry James, as I have total respect for you http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/retro/Index.php?ref=65348

  • October 7, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Even though I knew it was going to be this game, THIS WAS SO FULL OF EPIC AWESOMENESS!!!! The twist ending where you figure it’s the best game ever made left me in shock! This is what the definition of AVGN is!!! Sure, other episodes have more epicness, but this is THE VERY DEFINTION OF AVGN! It’s not about fight scenes, more games, special effects, crossovers….it’s about horrible games! And how to review them in the most unexpected matter of all time!!! ALL HAIL THE ANGRY VIDEO GAME NERD! HE WILL LEAD US AGAINST HORRID GAMES!!!!

  • October 7, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    I Still know a game for NES with worse controls. I had to make sure to get the game guide just to be able to move the player icon in it. Not sure if you have it though and I do like the Music in it. The Game is AirWolf for NES.

    The Attempt to force a lesson about not allowing Evil to progress past good was pathetic. But this was a much more in depth review of one of the near worst games ever to defile any Game console. I just think AirWolf might be a bit worse when it comes to control. Don’t forget its based off a Hit TV series.

    Honestly, I couldn’t imagine this review taking more than 5-10 mins. And I too have suffered from this horrible game, but sadly, I paid full retail for it, when it first came out. :( It’s probably the only NES game I never beat, but really, never tried that hard to.

    Thank you very much for doing that horrible abomination the justice it truly deserved, and making me laugh the whole freaking time. :)

    October 8, 2010 at 2:46 am

    Classic philosophizing by reading too much into a bad game! Excellent ending revelation that “Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” doesn’t allow you to attack/kill/ or have fun while playing, in that respect teaches a moral lesson.

    Learning is never supposed to be fun, right? Isn’t that what they teach you in high school?

  • October 8, 2010 at 3:54 am

    Haveta say, The part where you’re on the floor spilling the bottle of liquor all over yourself is fucking hilarious, along with the ending and the whole explanation of the true meaning of the game. Priceless.
    One of the best episodes that you’ve done.

    This is an amazing episode! I don’t know what everyone’s problem is (on Gametrailers) saying your older reviews are better, you’re losing your touch etc etc because this is an evolution of what you’ve been doing. A HUGE EVOLUTION!

    That was an epic speech at the end, the same kind of philosophical wishful thinking I’d conjure up to mask the hatred for a shitty game. The writing for your newer episodes have become more clever.

    My favourite line is “is Jesus going to get off the cross and start beating him with it?” LOL

    btw what beverage was that whiskey really?

    October 8, 2010 at 11:37 am

    Good video James, but let me say something about a previous comment…

    You said, “Don’t worry, i’ve got enough games and I’ve got a script for the movie to be made.” We’ve all seen our favorite guys come and go, RPGworldcomic, homestarrunner, askaninja guy, etc. We see you slowing down and doing past games. Not only that, but we see a ring on your finger too. You’re about 30 now, and I don’t see you doing AVGN past 35. Although you’ve got like a thousand games with you, you’ll never get to them all and personally, I don’t think you’ll even get to review much past 10% of them all. We all know that you’re heading for bigger and better one day, and we’re all just waiting for it to happen. I guess that if there is an AVGN movie, it will boost you to your next goal to directing or acting in non-AVGN stuff.

    We all love your stuff and whatever you make, we’ll be here to watch it =-)

    Well now. Hope you feel you are now 100% done with that piece and can throw it back into the fires of hell.

    I had another theory around this game. The towns people know that Jekyll can turn into a monster and so wish to kill him, or at least they make him feel unwelcomed. In which he gets angry/stressed out about it and turns into this monster.

    Yet again, your anger gives entertainment to us all. Except for the beginning where I actually felt a little sorry for you. Your acting skills are… um.. getting there? :p

    On a side note, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson is in the public domain in the USA. The full text in numerous formats is here:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/42

    I have always loved Project Gutenberg and always support literacy. :-) Now I can read the book on my netbook. And I’m sure it’ll be much more fun and enlightening than that foul “game”.

    As for The Nerd not finishing the game, why not? Doesn’t The Nerd have the right to exercise the preservation of his own sanity and tolerance? Some “fans” ask too much of him. Maybe some of those same “fans” should slap together their own short film and see if they can do better. When the main action of the character in the game is WALKING there will be narrative sidetrips employed.

    The only weak spot was the exhuming of Robert Louis Stevenson’s skeleton. I was hoping for better dialog for the character other than a simple “Fuck you!” or “I am the devil!” Then again, corpses in general, much less a fully decayed skeleton, aren’t too literate anyway.

    As for The Nerd’s “blackface” it was more of a throwback to early practical makeup effects rather than accusers exaggeratedly claiming that he used copious amounts of charcoal black to the point of being “politically incorrect” (“Bamboozled’ was a shitty “message movie”, BTW). Back then there wasn’t much in the way of latex applique or other makeup effects along the lines of Chris Walas or the late Stan Winston. The effects were much more practical and relied more on low lighting while strategic makeup exaggerated certain features of the human face.

    Even my own use of makeup and costuming in general would be considered high-tech back then.

    I liked the video. It isn’t his best but its good for now. The last thing I want to see again is another skeleton of an author that has dialogue which is much better written and executed for a David Mamet film or play.

  • October 10, 2010 at 9:52 am

    Haha. Good video. What a shitty game. But what’s that stuff that you are drinking from the whisky bottle? Looks like some body fluid. Drinking pee is probably a good way to get the bad taste out of your mouth from playing that game. Or maybe it’s just the wonderful brew of Dr Jekyll …

    Hey Mr. Matei, I really liked some of the title card redraws in Part 1 (Roger Rabbit and TMNT were particularly awesome). You should really consider designing an AVGN poster, in a similar compilation style, with characters from all the games that James has reviewed. I would totally buy one.

    Thank you so much James – by far one of the best videos you’ve done. I’m a little late watching it as I’ve been stuck home the past few days when a nasty cold…but that graveyard scene had me laughing my ass off! First time I’ve laughed since I got sick…thanks again!

    That ending is exactly what I call ‘Reading Between The Lines’, you are forced to do that crap all the time in school…. Let me give you an example:

    “Fred picked a red apple from a tree and ate it”.

    “Now class lets read between the lines um… Jimmy tell us, how does the red apple suggest Fred’s personality?”
    “WELL MISS, RED IS THE COLOUR OF BLOOD. BLOOD- HE’S A MURDERER!”

    Can’t poor Fred eat a red apple in peace?!?

  • Ben_from_G-town

    October 11, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    So,the Halloween episode was GREAT this year! I had no idea the game was that much BS! Not only do you have pretty much no way to defend yourself as Jekyll, but the side of the coin that is actually somewhat fun and feels like a game is NOT what you are supposed to want to do, and if you get too far at that point, you die! Yeah, really… playing as Hyde, while more fun, just makes extra work! Ridiculous!

    That was awesome when you busted out the hard liquor and started getting “drunk”… then when you passed out and appeared as Hyde that freaked me out, man! :D I was worrying for your health when you went on about that speech about how the game can help improves the human condition, but then I was reassured and busted out laughing when you said “Or you could just say it fuckin’ sucks!” Great! :D

    Oh, and the bit with you in the graveyard with the “author’s body” was great! He proclaimed he was the Devil, flipped you off and told you to go play Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde! Hilarious! :D :D :D

    HEY! James, You usualy end up making a special review for HOLLOWEEN right? Was just thinking…. Maybe you could set One to the Tune of….. SAW? I mean in those movies Saw…which is short for Jig-Saw, is a killer who in most of the films starts out being a character which his victims only see on a TV screen who gives instructions how to surrvive his tortureous games, which initself is equally bad.
    - I can almost picture you waking up in some basement puting in a VHS, to see some F* Nugget who claims to have You held aginst your will, and if you don’t review the games he selects , he will torch Your other games…….or something….idk, your the Horror movie buff

    hit “up B right left down right left A B right select B down start”
    if you press A on player 2 controller is stage clear, B is changing the mode.

  • October 14, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Mike’s illustrations are awesome.

    I don’t think this story is an accurate depiction of humyn duality — at least not in Jungian terms. Duality is about persona and shadow, id and ego, assertive and receptive, extroversion and introversion, private contemplation and public emotion, and all related equasions that arise from the reconciliation of these dualities. Whether one is under the influence of persona or shadow, id or ego, they still retain free will. Therefore, good and evil are in the choices we make, not the circuitry of our psyche (otherwise, no one would be responsible for their actions since we’d all be pre-programmed automatons).

    Or to paraphrase Kuato: “You are what you do. A man is defined by his actions…not his psychometric profile.”

    James still hasn’t shown us just how HORRIBLE this game can be. I spent all those endless hours playing this game until I finally beat it only to face the WORST GAME ENDING OF ALL TIME!

    I later learned that there’s a better alternate ending, but COME ON! As long as it takes to beat, you should see more than a quick image of the wedding chapel and fade to black…

  • SpeedyEric

    October 31, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    I know exactly how the Nerd was feeling at the beginning of this episode. It’s like going back the very place where you did your first job after being laid-off of your current job, and you feel embarassed about it, but you have to do it for the paycheck.

    I was one of the guilty ones who played Jekyll/Hyde after seeing Episode 2 of AVGN for the first time a little over a year ago. Shortly before this video came out, I once again played a little of the game, and I tried my best not to get hit as Jekyll, and I guest I made it to the middle of the 2nd level. …Oh, and he DOES look like Two-Face. =P

    James, I love the hold up you performed before you started playing the “game.”

    Some of the creatures of the Hyde gameplay look like kids in Halloween masks.

    11:02- I call that 20 different flavors of pathetic.

    The moment between 11:57 and 12:30 MUST be included in this year’s top Nerd moments, because it always cracks me up, including the Jesus part.

    I love the close up in the closing shot of this episode. Just as perfect as the closing shot of the regular Jekyll/Hyde episode.

    Finally got around to reading the classic book. I must say your comparison to the book via the games crappyness and good half being the part where you kill shit is surprisingly well founded. If the developers had done that on purpose I would applaud them despite the fact that the game play is shit terrible.

    He may have to re-revisit this game. It has a secret* boss that you fight as hyde. Its some random head shooting fireballs. Then you have to walk through the entire stage 6 with no enemies.

    oh god that game looks so bad. Now that you played thru it more i can trurly see why its your worst enemy hahah I resently seen it at my local game store for 8 bucks and i just laughed at the cashier.

    ( I have been huge AVGN fan since 2006, and after watching 99 episodes of James as the Nerd, he’s inspired me to make my own show, reviewing shitty Wii games! So if you have the time check out my vid on youtube where i review probably the worst Wii game of all time Party Pigs Farmyard Games! )

    After re-watching this episode, your rant at the end made me think that you could do a whole series on finding deep, philosophical meanings from shitty old games.

    To be honest, the graphics look good, but that’s about the only positive thing you can say about the “game.”

  • June 21, 2011 at 3:27 am

    Honestly, if the designers of this game actually intended for the game to be as thought provoking as James describes at the end of this video, it would have been the most ambitious game of it’s time. However, if we could actually track down the designers I’m sure they would say, we made a game that would capitalize on the name recognition of Dr. Jekyell and Mr. Hyde the story and that parents would buy in the hopes it might get their kids to pick up a book. Otherwise this game is shit.

    Ironically, your explanation as to why the game is good makes a lot of sense. You’re either an unintentional genius….

    …or you could just say that you fucking suck.

    I know I’m posting this way late, but i felt it was needed. Now I don’t know if you actually think the game is bad or really don’t get the concept of the cane, but let me explain it. I actually really like this game know, and here is how it works. If you use the cane, you don’t even have to attempted to hit anyone, but just sticking it out make the people pissed at you. Just don’t press the cane and you will at least by continuesly going right will find yourself at level 2.5-3 before dieing. The bomb man wont hurt you with his bombs even if you stand right on top of it, and people won’t run and hurt you like assholes. Billy Pones and the spiders will still hurt you though, but not signicant enough to get to level three before you turn into Mr. Hyde. So basically using the cane punishes you by having the towns people kill you. The End.

    Come to think of it, if it wasn’t for this horrible game, we wouldn’t have an AVGN. That is the one good thing this game has brought the world.

    When I played it and saw the fountains I figured the piss would kill you too. Surprised me when it didn’t.

    Allow me to address two of your complaints.
    First, the ‘health’ you are referring to is Jekyll’s mood – the real ‘health’ bar is above it. Some obstacles damage mood but not health, e.g. the terrible singing. The bomb still takes away most of both, though.
    Second, I’d be pretty pissed off too if someone tried to bludgeon me with a cane. You may want to stop doing that. =)

    This game doesen’t seem nearly as bad as ANY of the Action 52 games. At least the game is functional!

  • August 28, 2012 at 10:31 am

    It really is a horrable game. Great video, James.

    well i played Dr. Jekyll and mr. Hyde for the NES in my Emulator.

    this game really really sucks. i mean i played it to the 4th stage. and there it is just hopeless. YOU DIE INSTANT IF YOU MOVE A FEW STEPS!
    and, what the AVGN didn’t mentioned.. if you play the role of hyde long enough and you shut the game off a lil time later.

    you get the damn effect in your eyes that the whole screen scrolls from right to left. this just sucks ass, agh.
    not recommened to play this game, it is even bad for the eyesight o.O

    You know, I finally chalked it up to buying this game for $3.95 at a local shop, knowing how God Awful it was, just so I could say I own a clean copy of it. The sheer infamy of this disaster actually makes tracking a good copy down HARD! Now that’s saying something. Playing it for the first time you ask? I am SHOCKED that this EVER made it to shelves for the NES. I could however, understand if this was released on FLOPPY DISK for the Apple II or something, but no. Bottom Line: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for the NES makes The Oregon Trail for the Apple II feel like fucking Super C.

    I don’t know why, but it made me wanna listen to “My Jekyll Doesn’t Hide” by Ozzy!!! Awesome track! Can’t say the same about the game, though…

  • July 2, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Hey look! It’s Dr. Nerd and Mr. Rolfe! Ha! :D

  • July 13, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    BWA HA HA HA!! I love how you try to hit the game with the cane and it doesn’t work; then you try to hit the skeleton with the cane and it doesn’t work…THE CANE IS FUCKING USELESS!! Maybe you should have hit a bee or something so people would have gotten the joke a little easier. :/

    Plus, I loved your epiphany at the end. It actually makes a ton of sense, and could very well have been the driving idea behind the design of the game…or the game just fucking sucks and that’s all there is to it. :P

    I noticed James used the wizard and warriors music in this video. I would like to see James do a video on that game but what would he BITCH about.Maybe Wizard and Warriors could be a James and Mike Mondays video that would be Fucking Hella Awesome.
