"The meerkat sim you've been waiting for?"
I have been waiting for 20 years for a new meercat sim. The previous one "Super Meercat Bros" in 1990 was too much of arcade and not enough simulation for me, and unfortunately was released at the end of the NES life cycle so got overlooked by most. Unfortunately due to this 6/10 I will continue to wait. I can only hope the next meercat sim is on the "Wii HD" and first-person, living out the daily life of a meercat, cause thats what I really have been waiting for.
