Post your comments about these Jaguar reviews.
I'm surprised neither soccer game supports the multi-tap.

I thought these were all solid, I couldn't help but laugh at the opening line in Sensible soccer. Why yes I have always wanted to see fleas play soccer!

Yeah I may have overrated Sensible Soccer a bit because playing against the CPU is crazy.  Playing against another person is more manageable.

Damn I forgot I also had an updated Primal Rage review to post for the Jag CD.

Still got the review, but felt funny about posting a review for that game in the summer.  I will post it when the weather gets colder.  It'll give you something to look forward to.

These are good reviews! It goes to show that there are more good games on the Jaguar (and Jaguar CD) than one would think there are.

(but seriously! You have to review Plumbers Don't Wear Ties on the 3DO, AND Action 52 on the NES. Both are worse than White Men Can't Jump! I'm not even Kidding)

Can't wait to see your Primal Rage update (Judging from the Saturn review, I'm guessing that the Grade is gonna go down...)

It's interesting hearing your opinions on Sensible Soccer, it's reputation is nearly as legendary as Mario and Sonic in the UK. When this thing was first released on the Amiga and ST it was the source of many game nights and playground banter.
Seems very strange to hear indifference about it, might be a NA/Euro gaming divide.

Oh yes, another thing I must mention is that if you go to the Jaguar reviews, the list will think that your last Three reviews were Checkered Flag, Doom, and Power Drive Rally.

Do you think you could fix that real quick?

(PS, NBA Jam TE supports the Multi-tap, and Air Cars is one of the less good Atari Jaguar games out there. So... just something you could put with your Primal Rage update)

For my fellow Yanks curious why the Amiga originals were a legend to begin with, and how the series fell from grace...

Nice vids and just how it was, everyone went Sensible Soccer mad over here.
Although admittedly Europe was dominated by home computers rather than consoles like the US & NA
