2019/3/10: Atari 2600: Fast Food, Dishaster

Postby VideoGameCritic » March 10th, 2019, 11:59 am

This is a pair of Atari 2600 re-reviews. Note that both got slightly raised grades.
Fast Food went from D to D+, and Dishaster (former on the site as Dancing Plates) went from an F to D-
Thoughts?

Thanks - the Fast Food review brings back good memories! My parents had a small collection of 2600 games when I was a little kid, and there were a few food-themed games that I remember playing a lot: Plaque Attack, Pressure Cooker, and Fast Food. To be honest, I probably had no clue what I was doing when I played this as a kid. I think I just ate everything (pickles included) and then wondered why I died afterward!

P.S. In the last sentence of the Dishaster review, did you mean it to say "would", rather than "wouldn't"? Based on the low review score, I figured you meant "would call it a disaster".

Retro -
I think that line was a little confusing so I change it to "I wouldn't call it a complete disaster"

Is it possible for alternate titles to be added to the review title (i.e 'Dishaster/Dancing plate')?

Then on the review lists for each console both titles could be listed separately, but both take you to the same review?

It would be possible, but I think a while back we established the best way to handle it would be like I did with Breakaway IV and Breakout.

In that case, yeah, I guess I need to add an entry for Dancing Plate.

Ah, I didn't realize you had already multiple entries for other games in the past.

Please ignore my suggestion then as you already have a system in place.
