About your Double Dribble review

Ok, this is the first instance I've noticed where the letter grade and the actual review don't seem to add up. You spend about three-fourths of the review complimenting it, talking about how good it is. You seemed to only have a few quibbles with the game. So, what about that is C+? It seems to be the kind of review that would warrant maybe a B- or a straight B. I mean, you gave Conker's Bad Fur Day a C-(I think) and you RIPPED the crap out of that game....that's only two technical points lower. Anyway, that's my two cents for the day.

i have to agree here, double dribble is amazing in that it was the first NES basketball game, and it probably remained one of the best games (if not the best game) of video basketball well into the 16-bit generation.  The review was spot on, yet the grade seemed kindof harsh.

You guys are the one voice of reason in my life (that's scary).
Your cogent arguments convinced me to bump up Double Dribble to a B-.
Also, I knocked down Conker's to an even C.
Looks about right to me.
