Great reviews, critic.  It's great to see you going old school two reviews in a row.  And it was a total hoot when you called the 007 game "unadulterated crap".  I guess it could have been worse...it could have been adulterated crap.  I remember playing Mousetrap when I was a kid, but I don't remember having the control issues that you had.  But then again, my memory isn't what it used to be.  Now where did I put my darn car keys?

Yes! Keep those old reviews coming..it's the one thing that's hard to find elsewhere...how about O2 games next?

I like Mousetrap but I agree about the controls, it is like driving a car stuck in the mud. The mouse stutter-steps, rather than flowing like Ladybug, Mr.Do or Pepper 2. The music is great but I don't like the prize system; several are hidden in the maze but #2 only appears after #1 is eaten, meaning you must clear lots of "old" prizes to see the new one of the current maze. HOWEVER, these gripes all aply to the coin-op too, they just emulated it. You had the same "having to look for the order of door buttons" problem on the coin-op too.

back in the day, we didnt complain as much about control issues, since we never had it any better. now we are kindof spoiled by tight controls, and a good portion of classics are seriously lacking

Why did you change your opinion with James Bond? In 2000 your wrote:
"...but the mor I played, the more the challenge drew me in...give this game
a chance before you write it off."
The same happened to me when I played this game first in (I think) 1993.
The rating "C" is average.
Now you say James Bond is totally trash. Why???
Your newer reviews tend to be less objective. The writing-style is more like
the yellow press!

That old review was dated sometime in the year 2000.  Do you really expect me to remember what I was thinking seven years ago?

Sorry, critic, but I have to agree with Mister VCS on this one.  If you've given a game a "C" back in 2000, it's hard to see how you can give it a "D-" today.  Maybe you were in a pissed-off mood when you played it?  Enquiring minds want to know.

I'm a big fan of the site but I was disapointed to see you use the word "homo" in your review of this game.

I too am easily disappointed in using slurs.  In fact, using "the", "an" or "a" offends me deeply.  but using "homo" just didn't do it.  sorry, I side with VGC on this one.  He meant it as a joke, nothing more, nothing less.
