Plot. The plot follows a group of teenagers or one single teenager, they roam throughout Elm Street, fighting creatures and monsters in both the real world and in the dream world. They must collect Freddy's bones in order to prevent him from returning. They fight against the many forms of Freddy until they confront the real Freddy Krueger himself.
Concept. At first you start at Elm Street. You enter different houses, including Freddy's old house, then you head to the junkyard, the cemetery, and the Elm St. High School, where the final confrontation begins. But be careful, at anytime you may fall asleep and enter the dream world, where the legendary child killer awaits. It is known that true horror icons like Freddy, Chucky, Leatherface and Jason never die, they just fade away for awhile.
Music and Sound. Some of the music was not that catchy at all, but the most eerie theme was the Freddy's House stage. Of course, it really fits the place of that person who was a child serial killer, and now kills young teenagers in their dreams, which results in their deaths in the real world. The sound was ok for one thing.
Tips and Strategies. The trick is to calm down, and be careful when jumping through distant areas, because monsters will jump, when you get hit, you will fall and die. Sometimes it's better to dodge enemies than just fighting, because you will just be wasting your time, and it will cause you to fall asleep, and enter the dream world. The Necromancer and the Ninja, are the best choices against bosses.
History. This game is based on the 1984 cult horror film of the same name directed by Wes Craven. The movie series began in the 80's, a very special time in movies, music, and television. Over the years, Freddy has scared many people in the movies until the early 90's with "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare". Freddy returned in 2003, with the unsuccessful movie "Freddy vs. Jason". Then what I truly hated, is that the lazy ass screenwriters, decided to make a remake of the franchise. GENIUS! ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?! Why the HELL, can't screenwriters think anything original these days?! That's what's wrong with Hollywood today. Dawn of the Dead's tagline is: When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth. But in my words: When there are no more original ideas in Hollywood, the lazy ass writers, shall make a stupid ass remake.
Rantings. Well, I have to hate falling to precipices, especially where monsters are jumping. Also in the dream world, the boss I hated most was the harder version of Freddy's Head and Glove. They would be jumping around the screen, and it was bothersome. The Acrobat was kind of watered down since it only threw knives, and the normal teenager did nothing but punch. Most people would tell me: "But it's an old game, cut it some slack! Blah blah blah!"
Good Aspect. Well, the Ninja turned out to be one of my favorites, as when it jumps, it kicks in Bruce Lee style. Also, the ending was kind of dumb, but then when it asked that it was really over, it really proved that horror icons cannot stay dead, they always come back, no matter how many times they get killed, just like Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Leatherface, Chucky, and so on.
Overall. Well, the game is not that bad, but is neither that good. So I give this game a 5 out of 10. I was going to give it a 4, but I changed my mind.
