The lights are on
Nintendo has always been fond of keeping their franchises alive, but it took numerous console generations for Pit to return in Kid Icarus: Uprising. His NES original is one of the most notoriously difficult games of all time, so we decided to dust off our cartridge and re-examine it for this week's episode of Replay.
Watch below to see Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, Bryan Vore, and myself try as hard as we can to beat the first stage.

Yay for Replay, double yay since it's Kid Icarus!
Kid Icarus looks great! I've actually never seen any of this game in action before this Replay. I do have Kid Icarus: Uprising, though, and it's a great game despite the bad controls.
I have that Jurassic Park game! It's pretty terrible. I never liked the isometric perspective and running out of bullets sucks.
I remember playing this on my cousin's NES. Oh my, how much the 3DS dulls down the difficulty with its remakes.
A lot of people, including myself, are having complaints about this not loading.
Gonna have to play the 3DS one pretty soon.
Nice short Replay, I'm ready for SUPER REPLAY!!!
Had JP for NES as a kid, managed to save Tim from the Triceratops and fight the T-Rex but never beat it. That game is the isometric fetch quest from hell.
lol epic end to Jurassic Park, getting chased by Raptors while you gather eggs, think you earned a rest--random bomb in a box lol.
This game was crazy hard. But I had a good time playing it back in the day. Its a shame they didn't continue this to the next generation consoles.
I remember this game being REALLY hard. Apparently I remembered correctly.
Geez, just watching you guys play this made me tense up. This game may be the hardest game I've ever played.
Short but sweet, I like it.
I remember playing this on the kiosk @ Woolworths. Damn, was it that long ago?
I haven't played Kid Icarus, but it looks awesome.
Never really liked Kid Icarus, but I'd play it from time to time because I'd forget how hard it was.
Meanwhile, the SNES Jurassic Park game was really awesome. The NES one was just a simplified version of it I think.
you guys should check out a game called section-z for nes from the vault, THAT is the hardest game ever made i guarantee it.
