Game Reviews

Platform: Sega CD

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein mixes an action/adventure game with one-on-one fighting. However, as Frankenstein knows, building something from disparate parts can produce mixed results. The lengthy treks to collect puzzle-solving objects are challenging but ultimately a no-brainer.

The graphical quality is wide- ranging. The 3D cinematics look amazing, but the side-view visuals are flat; the 3/4-overhead look just reveals dull scenery. Moreover, the limping Frankenstein looks like the Addams Family's Uncle Fester.

Frankenstein comes bundled with Bram Stoker's Dracula, another frightfully average CD game. This two-for-one deal's okay...at discount.

ProTips:

  • It's easy to find items, but you might need to use them elsewhere.
  • Some items help you avoid a fight. For example, there's one that puts Dr. Frankenn to sleep.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a SNES video game that is based on the novel by Mary Shelley. You play as the artificial man created by Victor Frankenstein. After Victor rejects you due to your hideous appearance, you flee from Victor and you swear your revenge on him. The player controls Frankenstein, the monster, as he stomps through a medieval village looking for someone to love and accept him for who he is.
