Welcome to the review section, which is on permanent hiatus! Reviews here come in two varieties:
The Ratings System Explained
100%- Only one game can receive this rating: my favorite game of all time.
Super NES (94 Reviews) - After losing ground to Sega for two years, Nintendo made a major comeback with their 16-bit Super NES. The system allowed for much better graphics and sound than the Genesis was capable of, creating the greatest console war of all time.
Nintendo 64 (15 Reviews) - Originally called the "Ultra 64", Nintendo released this cartridge-based system in 1996, a year after the Sony Playstation. Some of the greatest games ever made were created for the N64, but space limitations, cartridge costs, and the system's kiddie image would ultimately leave it less popular than Sony's wonder machine.
Genesis (108 Reviews) - With Nintendo concentrating the 8-bit market in 1989, Sega saw their chance to strike. The Genesis shipped with system-selling conversions of arcade hits such as Golden Axe and Ghouls 'n Ghosts. It easily overtook its only early competitor in the 16-bit market, the TurboGrafx-16.
Playstation (57 Reviews) - Up until the Playstation's release in late 1995, every CD-based system had been a commercial failure. However, the PSX was extremely powerful for its time, and sported a great launch library. Hundreds of games, many of them excellent, have since seen light on the PSX.
Saturn (10 Reviews) - Sega blundered with the Saturn, releasing it too early at too high a price tag with too few good games. Because the system was hard to develop for, most games ended up looking inferior to their PSX counterparts. Some truly great games were released in the Saturn's short lifespan, but it still ended up selling only about 2 million units in North America.
Movies - I love movies almost as much as I
love games. So, they get their own section.
