“Its morphin’ time!”

14 years ago those words used to send shivers down my spine, listening to them yesterday just made me queasy. Nowadays the Power Rangers suck more than a Dyson vacuum cleaner, but back then, if you liked the Power Rangers you were the coolest kid on the block. Oh yeah, I knew all the Power Rangers. Jason, Zach, Kimberly, Trini… and that Blue one. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was released on a load of systems, the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Gear, Sega CD, and Game Boy all saw a version of this game, but the SNES version topped ‘em all.

The second you load it up you hear the music from the show; the actual music, how awesome is that?  Power Rangers was essentially a beat ‘em up, scroll through the levels Streets Of Rage style beatin’ Putty ass and stuff, with you playing as any one of the five Rangers. In the show, the Power Rangers would take on waves of useless henchmen then morph to take on the big baddie, and this game is no different.

You play the first half of the level as a normal teenager, but around halfway you morph into your respective Power Ranger, and that’s when you really haul ass. Beat through the rest of the level morphed to reach the boss. While morphed you can use the Power Rangers weapon, including Zack’s slinky axe/gun combo. Gunblade? No thank you!

Choose Your Ranger. The Correct Answer Is Zack.

The last two levels of the game are fought in the Megazord. A giant robot that is made of 5 smaller robots. These levels play more like Street Fighter, one one one fights against Rita’s monsters after she super-sizes them. The game showcases some of the series most awesome badguys, from Eyeguy to to Gnarly Gnome. Unfortunately the SNES version doesn’t have the Flying Golden Monkey Goldar, but we can live without him.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was one of the finest beat ‘em ups back then, and the stages are pretty awesome, taking you as far as the moon to kick ass. The only downside to the game is that there’s no proper multiplayer. It’s a team of Power Rangers but you can only play single player. Although you can input a code that lets you and a friend play the final battle with you as the Megazord and him as Cyclopsis, it isn’t very fun. Another lame aspect is that the Green Ranger isn’t included, he only appeared in the Sega System versions!

Elephant Bomb!!

Power Rangers got very repetitive over the years though; most episodes would play out like this:

  • You fight Puttys.
  • Main bad guy appears.
  • Morph into Power Rangers.
  • Rita makes bad guy grow big.
  • Summon Megazord.
  • Save the day.

The fact of the matter is Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is an fantastic game. Definitely one to pick up, or download if it’s hit the Virtual Console. I’ll now leave you with the most awesome quote of the game; “You made my gnarly monster fall, now you’ll pay when he gets tall!”

      I agree with the other commenters, a well weittrn and insightful piece about what men want in a woman.I do agree with the points raised, however, I feel you could of done with a few more additions, like being supportive of her man and leaves her man to be a man.These are common things that I hear men wish they have in a woman on a fundamental level. But as you say there are men out there who will have different focus points so I guess you’ve rounded it up well.Thanks for sharing

    Are you insane?! The sega version CRUSHES the snes version. True multiplayer in the game, green ranger playable, dragonzord, goldar as a boss character, you were never a fan of the greatness known as mighty morphin power rangers!!! (which was also one of the most racist shows in existence… Yellow ranger is asian and knows martial arts, red ranger is redneck, black ranger was black and danced all the time… ahhh the good ol days when tv could get away with that crap)

  3. The SNES version actually had a decent soundtrack, and far better gameplay ;D

    Man, i loathed the MMPR as a child.

  5. As a child, I could never figure out why every kid loved MMPR. Me and my friends were too busy pretending we were Sonic the Hedgehog characters

  6. Favorite game on the snes by far, nice one cloud
