How can we create a Hercules game without talking about the biggest name in strong men in modern times: Arnold Schwarzenegger. (That’s the final time I’ll try to type his last name.) Arnold took a turn as Hercules when he was just a lad.
From wikipedia we learn many things about this film exploit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hercules_in_New_York
It is known for being the first feature film to star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was about 23 years old when the film was produced. It is one of the films that Arnold Schwarzenegger admits regretting.
Well, I don’t regret Arnold doing this movie. It has provided me with a lot of joy. I love the fact that he changed him name at the height of his body building prowess and the best they could come up with was “Strong”.
Due to his thick Austrian accent, Schwarzenegger had all his lines dubbed, although modern showings of the film have his audio track restored. However, even these restored showings cannot change the final scene’s lines that Hercules speaks to Pretzie over a small transistor radio, in a voice that is clearly not Schwarzenegger’s.
Oh Arnold. Little did you know that accent would be your key to fame later on.
In the move Hercules does battle a bear in central park as he does in our game- although ours is a half bear half giant named agrius and he puts up more of a fight. For teh most patr arnold battle gangsters.
Over all, Arnold’s Hercules was a bit more naive and definitely less blood thirsty than ours. I think you’ll have more fun with ours.
Hercules (Schwarzenegger) is sent to Earth where he finds true love and starts a promising career in the bodybuilder business.
