Simbabbad commented on Review: Dr. Mario Online RX:

get2sammyb, weither you find those differences important or not is irrelevant (they're big deals gameplay wise, but that's not the point).

The fact is you don't mention any of them, and they may interest plenty of people. Not mentionning co-op play in a review is a huge omission, and your whole review has the same vibe all along. You're just not mentionning features when you personally don't care about them, and you're not accurately describing the game.

Simbabbad commented on Review: Dr. Mario Online RX:

Dr. Mario is not much expensive compared to Pop, especially when the replay value, depth, presentation, options and online play are taken into consideration.
And especially not when Puyo Puyo 2 costs 900 points and has 4/5 stars on vc-reviews.com, also with less options, outdated presentation and no online play or leaderboards whatsoever. The money excuse is a bit strange compared to a lot of titles.

It also seems from your review you don't really know how to play the game and spent little time with it. The Germ Buster mode has MANY important differences and rules from the main game and you don't mention any : not the several pills going down at the same time, not the seperated pieces being draggable (which really changes the gameplay), and not even the UP TO 4 PLAYER CO-OP MODE. That last one is a pretty big omission, to say the least.
I'm sorry, but your review is shallow and misleading, it really sounds like you spent 5 minutes on it.

On the whole I find the WiiWare reviews to be much less reliable than the Virtual Console reviews, they seem to be going all over the place, overrated in general and that one severely underrated.

There are more options, a new play mode, online play, excellent presentation, there are leaderboards and online rankings, the ability to send a demo to a friend, and this scores less than something like... Pop ? Which is as barebone and shallow as possible ?

And because it's been done before, which is also the case with Toki Tori, which yet has a 9 without online play or ranking or endless replay value ?

Simbabbad commented on Nebulus:

Excellent game, I owned it when I had an Amiga and I'm amazed the C64 version is pretty much the same quality.

The game is part platformer, part puzzle and part die & retry, it's really excellent and original and well made. Maybe I'll pick it up.

Simbabbad commented on EU VC Releases - 14th September - Double Japan...:

Why so much people complain about translation ? SMB2j is ENTIRELY in English, just like the first one. And from what I've seen Picross has only its main title in Japanese. That complaint doesn't make much sense.

SMB2j is the price of a PC Engine title, which is fair IMO, and at last WE HAVE 60HZ ON PAL VC. I've waited until Wii launch for this.

Championship Lode Runner is insanely hard, you can look up to some video walkthrough on Youtube, it's just crazy. Most people couldn't go past level 1.

Actually you got it all wrong, it's Pac-Mania the lesser game, most gamers will tell you that :-)
