You guessed it - two more Halloween reviews.
These two SNES games are particularly horrible.

Both of these reviews are terrific - so good in fact, that despite the grades, they kind of make me want to actually play these two turds.

I'm curious: how does a game go from being a D game to an F- upon a rereview? I take F- to mean that the game is completely broken, but wouldn't you have noticed that in the initial review?

Damn... these look terrible but on the bright side the reviews were hilarious. It's crazy that you've been cranking them out so quickly for the Halloween season.

So how did you conclude that the spear- throwing ladies were lesbians?

Banjo,
It's not safe to assume a game is broken because it got an F-.  The game is just plain horrible to the point of being unplayable.  In this case, being broken might have improved it.

Can't tell you what I was thinking in my original "D" review, but I may have been giving it the benefit of the doubt since the graphics and sound aren't bad.  These days however I do not hesitate to rake a game over the coals!

Aside from deliberate sabotage in the wake of the failed SNES CD add-on, I never understood why the SNES versions of Sony Imagesoft games were always significant downgrades from the Genesis and, when applicable, Sega CD versions, from the gimped weapon and hit detection issues in Dracula, to the music and platforming woes of Frankenstein, to the load times and removed levels of Mickey Mania.

Tron: Apparently, if a woman doesn't look enough like Princess Peach, she must like other women. Ditto the reverse, according to some of the critic's older reviews.

I thought this was a part of the past, though?  

I guess there's no escaping some people's politics...

No politics - just humor.

These "wilderness people" are supposed to be men, but they look more like butch lesbians, especially with those mullet hairstyles.

Don't be so sensitive.
