    At a time spent between the stories of my uncle being a boxer and watching the movies over and over, that game was a godsent… I beat the crap out of Drago the third time I played it, and have done so everytime I played the game since 😀

    Awesome way on watching the first 5 Rocky’s at the same time in preperation for “Rocky Balboa,” James. I usually watch one film at a time to prepare myself before seeing a sequel.

    Man, the gameplay and the controles of this game sucks out Ivan Drago’s super steroids.

    Love the ending of the DVD edition. Just as perfect as chocolate and vanilla together.

    I wonder if they made a turbo controller for the Master System. If they did, then those training stages would be really easy to surpass.

    Has this video always been so low quality? Looks like 240p? I still love the video and remember playing it across the street. My friend always acted so pro at this game then could never do any better than me. Now I know he was full of shit when I see how fk’d the controls REALLY were!

      @MrBrrumpkins No first time out was the 12 episode the Friday 13th one.

      I have written two comments there before reading this comment of yours and if you go to that episode then you will see what I wrote.

      Well that Jason episode along with the next one with Freddy Kruger EP 13 are amongst the BEST he has EVER done.

    Twice the Mega Power… Crap!

    My guess is they mean that the Game’s ROM is 2 Mbit, meaning it has 256kb. This is pretty average for 1987-89. Mario Bros has 40kb, Mario Bros 3 has 384kb, Kirby has 768kb and Action52 has 2Mbyte (or 16 times the Mega Power lol).Size doesn’t matter. So twice the Mega Power is like Atari Jaguar saying “64 Bit”

    Looks they were pretty desperate to come up with a buzzword.

    “It’s got electrolytes!” (Idiocracy) (that’s what I always say when a commercial on TV comes up with crappy buzzwords with no meaningful meaning)

    I actually passed this game like 40 times. Im such a huge Sly fan it was all I had back in the day. To beat Drago you have to time each combo correctly. You have to scare him away with jabs and let him walk into your big fat left cross. Its the only punch you can ever hit him with, without getting the holy snot shit beat out of you. If you throw down with him you get pasted immediately. DUDE I CANT WAIT FOR EXPENDABLES II!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Same goes for Clubber. Its not a button mash game so if thats all you ever try in the words of Ivan Drago, “you will lose”.

    rocky 6 was a good movie too 😛

  • June 14, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Yeah, probably only for Rocky fans, everyone else should not try it out.

  • November 14, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    I loved this game when I was growing up, but it helped that I loved Rocky. I would always gets to Drago and get my ass handed to me. Lang was hard though.

    The music sounds a bit like the original Phantasy Star game’s title screen. Always wanted a Mega Drive.

    rocky yueahhhh

  • July 25, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    But it IS Rocky Balboa – not Rocky VI.

    I wonder if James is looking to reupload this to something other than youtube in the future, cause I think this episode loses a lot without the actual Rocky theme.

    • February 9, 2017 at 7:14 pm

      Several older videos have been ruined by major edits. The old video player on the site was crap, but at least we had the real versions of the videos.

      It’s not just the music that was changed, an entire section of the video where the Nerd is walking around the house with all the Rocky movies playing is gone.
