The Blues Brothers first made its appearance a long, long time ago - 1980, in fact. The eighties were a decade where the likes of Ghostbusters and Back To The Future were considered to be the best films around. The Blues Brothers fits into this category quite nicely. Amazingly, after more than fifteen years, the non-cool film of the eighties, Blues Brothers, made another appearance on the big screen. Regardless of the game’s successes or failings, a video game went into production. Blues Brothers 2000 paves the way for Nintendo 64.

As a 3D platform game, Blues Brothers 2000 has an awful lot to live up to, particularly in the wake of Mario and Zelda from Nintendo themselves. Control of the lead character, Elwood Blues is actually rather user friendly, and on a par with most other games within the genre. The game evenly spreads itself across 4 worlds, with each world split into five large areas. Levels consist of typical platforming attributes, with high jumps, puzzles, mini games, and even dance duels, to give the games a strong sense of what it is intended to be – a Blues Brothers game.

For the limited few players who are fans of Dan Ackroyd and his musical antics, this is a collectible; for anyone else, it’s a platform game and nothing more.
