Okay, so I see the emulator game of Barbie online and since it's in the "Top 100 C64 Games" I thought I'd give it a try, it looked colourful enough. Big mistake! It's the worst game I've played since Final Fantasy X! It sucks arse! It's like the rod of numbing boredom ripping into me head! Okay, so you want to know what I'm on about. You start off with a title screen that looks more like Lolita porn. I get interested. You then see the famous plastic doll at her house and the phone calls. It's Ken, asking if his bimbo wants to go to dinner or something, and Barbie agrees in the cheesy L.A. accent "sounds like fun". Now the talking was probably powerful stuff compared to what we have now so seems pretty good. So you're off driving. You pass some shops and you try on outfits like the dress shop, swimwear shop, shoes shop and hairstylists. You drive round in your convertable, then back to your house where Ken asks you to go on another date. And that's it! Driving around on a black screen with pink and yellow colours and trying on clothes I mean is 8-bit Barbie's life so dull??? Did they use too much information on the sound files? What happened to the gameplay??? And then to make it worse the cow doesn't even go on her dates she just drives around shopping for free! I'm surprised Ken stayed with her after her acting like shopping whore and standing him up! I mean what is the point of this game? It's like some six-year old's dress-up game you find on Newgrounds, only six-year olds make an effort! Whoever made this game should be ashamed of themselves, like the Norweigian who did the Crazy Frog voice (though originally a silly e-mail thing) is so ashamed of himself! But this is worse than the crazy frog. This game should never have been made. Unless there's a cheat where you can strip Barbie of her pixilated clothes to see her breasts and 80s pubic hair, this game should not exist! The only people who would play this are people who don't even know a C64 tape is not for the stereo! I would have more fun being licked on the back by a cow, or have me toenails ripped out by a monkey with a pair of rusty pliers! Seriously, why does this exist? The website should be ashamed to put it in the "Top 100 C64 Games" because I doubt the others are worse. Trashman was more fun that this! Dude, I mean, ugh!

Have a nice day.

Barbie´s actually one of the most played C64 games in our house. My two daughters, mind you, not me. :D

I´m sure it *WAS* targetted at very young girls, and part of the whole Epyx toys line-up (G.I.Joe, Barbie, Hot Wheels etc.) None of them contained massive amounts of gameplay.

Anyway. A tip from my 8 year old daughter. You need to dress correctly for the occation AND be at the house at the time Ken said he´d pick you up. If he says "See you in an hour", you have to be there, otherwise he´ll just call you up again.

I did, and nothing happened! It's still a dumb game, and even as a six year old I would have hated it! I was into Turrican, Creatures and Lightforce so y' know. *^_^* \m/

Tell you what, I'll play it again and see. I spent last night completing Murray Mouse Supercop so I'm sure I have time, lol!
