Brutal Sports got an upgrade, and Trevor got a downgrade.  Syndicate is a new review.

I guess it doesn't matter but based on the your reviews of brutal sports and Trevor both seem to deserve much lower grades. I don't think you had one or two good things to say about either one. Syndicate was a decent pc game but it failed miserably on the consoles, the control just isn't there and like you eluded to, it is more of a chore then anything else at the end of the day. Nice reads I just can't seem to nail down your grading system.

Trevor mcfur is a whipping boy for a reason, it's full of furries and it's pretty awful in general.

I never played a Jaguar game, but I agree with Shawn here. You seem to bash down the games, but give them relatively high ratings... just a feeling, you know. Liked the reviews.

At the top of every review page is this disclaimer (with the proper system name substituted):

NOTE: These games are rated in comparison to other Jaguar games. The main criteria is based on how fun the game is to play, although control, graphics, and sound also play a role.

I'm grading on a curve!  Since there aren't many great titles for the system, the standard is lower.  So even though Brutal Sports Football might be below average for the Genesis, it's still one of the better games for the Jaguar.  Same with Trevor McFur: it's pretty lame, but not half bad as Jaguar games go.

I hope this solves the big mystery.

Grading on a curve gives the impression that the system has good games though, and seeing as how it's the jaguar we all know it doesn't.

I understand that, but crap remains crap, right?

Fellas, Tempest 2000 and Aliens Vs. Predator kick some serious ass.  Those games are a blast to play even today.  Okay, AVP is a little harsh on the eyes on the big screen but Tempest 2000 rocks.

 

Funny, I always thought my copy of Syndicate for the Jag was broke as there was no music playing at all in the background.  Good to know the game just plain sucks and it wasn't my copy alone.

 

Thanks for the reviews Critic.
