Re: 2015/11/1: Sega CD: 3 Ninjas Kick Back, Flink

Wow, I certainly wouldn't have guessed that 3 Ninjas Kick Back would get the C+ and Flink the F. I know some people really detest Flink, so I guess the VGC is one of them. I haven't played it much, but I have played 3NKB a bit and didn't have much luck with it. Very glad to see more Sega CD reviews ...

Re: 2015/9/12: Genesis: California Games, Last Action Hero, Ecco Jr.

Can't argue with the Last Action Hero review per se, but it sounds like you didn't get past the first area. I was hoping you'd make it further into the game, as there's more to talk about: a dreadful side-scrolling driving level that's almost unplayable until you know a couple key tricks, an awful b...

Re: Whats the best Phillips CD-I system version?

I have the LG GDI-700M model, and so far it's been great. Among other things it has a PAL/NTSC switch, a built-in DVI card, and a user-replaceable battery.

Re: 2015/9/4: Odyssey 2: Volleyball, Traffic

I DO have the Odyssey 2 multicart, so I will give Loony Balloon a try next time. Awesome. IMHO, it's one of the best games on the Odyssey², or at least one of the most creative. A couple things you should know going into it: one, you have to score above a certain number of points before the game wi...

Re: 2015/9/4: Odyssey 2: Volleyball, Traffic

Great to see new (and "new") Odyssey² reviews! Unfortunately I haven't played either game, but I'm glad to hear you liked Chris's game. He's programmed for quite a few systems, and I think the Odyssey² is an especially good fit for him. Will we be seeing more reviews? You're pretty close t...

Re: 2015/8/29: NES: Goonies II, Kabuki Quantum Fighter, Big Nose Freaks Out

Giving The Goonies II an F grade is pretty harsh, but I could've guessed that the Critic wouldn't go for it. It's the kind of game where you have to be willing to do some pretty meticulous mapping, wall-testing, and/or route planning to succeed. It's also got a couple of nasty "gotcha" mom...

Re: In defense of 'bad' disparaged games

I had Star Voyager for Nintendo. My uncle gave it to me for Christmas. He is a big Star Trek fan so I bet he was thinking along those lines. Critic hasn't reviewed at it, but Questicle gave it an F, and it deserves it. Yet I poured hours into it and need to have a copy in collection just because of...

Re: 2015/8/21: Intellivision: Pitfall, Zaxxon

Great to see more Intellivision reviews! I hope it's the beginning of a trend. :) BTW small factual error -- Zaxxon was published by Coleco, like the Atari 2600 version. I have the blue box sitting on my shelf, along with all the other Coleco releases for Intellivision (except Lady Bug, I still need...

Re: In defense of 'bad' disparaged games

I find -- with remarkable consistency -- that I'm as likely to enjoy a "bad" game as a "good" one, if not more so. At the very least I enjoy mastering a "bad" game and overcoming its quirks and flaws. And oftentimes there's very little out there about how to really play...
