The game however, sucks. I owned this when I had a VB and played it for about 5 minutes and that was too much. The whole game is pretty flawed and I think you nailed my initial impression of the game. Good review.
Seconded! And yes indeed, as I mentioned here, that's the last US release for the Virtual Boy left. (There are six Japanese releases as well, with varying levels of English-friendliness from what I understand.)
Completing a console's US library is a great milestone for this project and site. The next one could be the 32X, which has 3 US releases left (Pitfall, RBI Baseball '95, and Supreme Warrior) as we discussed a while back, and the VGC actually owns those games.
Or there's the Atari 5200, which I believe only has five official releases left to cover:
And to my surprise, the Atari 7800 has only six left:
So more milestones may be coming up, though a couple of those games are quite rare (especially Tank Command).
- I think it's time for an icon for a completed review set, no?
- 3D versions of Tetris-style games are always a bad idea, and yet people kept trying it. Welltris, Blockout, Tetrisphere, this...they never really work.
He also has only 6 more 32X games to review(7 if you count Surgical Strike, but the 32X version was only ever released in Brazil and is quite the possibly the rarest video game of all time, so I wouldn't expect a copy to pop up anytime soon):
FIFA Soccer 96
Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure
R.B.I. Baseball 95
Sangokushi IV(AKA Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire)
