Here are two new Sega Master System reviews.  Afterburner is a re-review.  I downgraded its grade (from D to F) as I re-reviewed the entire series (more reviews to come soon).

Line of Fire is a surprisingly good import!  Love it.

Nice reviews. Two things though:

F14...Thundercat? lol

Instead of using [expletive], would it be offensive to just say "heck" or "darn"? I think those are pretty safe. "Fudge" works too.

Not sure where that Thundercat reference came from!  I changed it to Tomcat.

Anybody else not like my use of expletives?

I think using asterisks or random characters like &#$% would work far better than actually typing out "[expletive]".

Is there an Afterburner home convert you actually DO like?  Think you haven't played the recent one - After Burner Climax...

I had never heard of "Line of Fire" until now. Must be cause it's an import, huh? It's cool that it also supports the 3D glasses!

It's these kind of reviews that keep me coming back to this site.

Yeah, there are versions I like, which you will be seeing soon.  As for Afterburner Climax, is that an Xbox Live game?  I might have to check that out.

It was a 2006 arcade game that did get a downloadable conversion for the 360 and PS3 for $10.  It's quite good and, knowing how you have an issue with the speed of After Burner, you'd probably like this one, which finds a pretty nice balance between being fast and arcadey, but a touch slower if you can't (or don't want to) deal with the sensory/speed overload.

Yeah, very cool info on Line of Fire.  Who knew it supported 3D?  Pretty cool stuff. 

And I can't recommend AfterBurner Climax enough.  It's a great game especially when it goes on sale at $5. 

I now check the XBox Live Arcade sales weekly to see what's up for sale.  You can find some real gems for dirt cheap.

I actually find it very amusing.
