This is a series of gameplay vids I’m doing highlighting overlooked games for the various consoles I own.
At first glance some of you are going to say WTF is this, but bear with me, this game is actually quite addictive. This was another late budget release for the US PS1 (sorry PALwatchers, but no PAL release on this one). It hit the PS1 in the states in December of 2001, and was a part of the generic named games localized by A1 games. Games with such riveting names like Shooter, Racing, Bowling, Boxing, and etc. Actually, most of those games had official names in Japan, but were changed when brought over as budget titles. For Example, this was just called Top Shop.
As the name implies, this is essentially a video game version of a board game. It plays like a more simplified version of Monopoly, and it’s pretty addictive. The game offers a single player story mode (who’s in-depth dialog is shown at the beginning of this vid), and most importantly, multiplayer for up to six players. You can play the multiplayer mode against A.I. opponents, or you can get five friends and go head to head. If your friends and you enjoy playing board games (some people get crazy competitive with such things), or if you’re looking for a good game to play with your kids, Top Shop works best with friends. By yourself it is still insanely addictive, but will eventually get old. It’s a game who’s enjoyment factor amps way up if you have a few extra people to play against.
NOTE: The developer of Top Shop (Kid) is also responsible for G.I. Joe on the NES which is one of my favorite NES games of all time.
