@jump I am afraid the Nintendo review system is not great, I got three emails from them asking me to review the metroid amiibo that I was still waiting for due to a delay.

@dew12333 I've made a few posts in this near year old thread so which comment of mine are you replying to? If you are talking about the Wii U/3DS eshop review system, you can't buy Amiibo there, that's probably why you haven't gotten it yet. ;p

@dionysos283 Why did you revive this thread, why, why! (I'm joking of course)

Now that @jump has joined the party, this thing isn't ever going back in the closet.

I actually saw a pretty good review of the game that didn't just trash the game, they didn't like it but it wasn't just bad end of review, they put some thought into it.

@jump Sorry I didn't realise it was so old. I was replying about Nintendo reviews. My experience was from from the Nintendo UK store where I keep getting requested by Revoo for reviews on the things I buy. They stupidly ask you for a review as soon as you receive them, as we all know you get a few coins from doing them so me and others probably just write anything to get the coins.

I’ll never see this as good, mainly because once the patch is gone, it’s unplayable for folks who are sensitive to flashing lights, as one of the bosses apparently causes epilepsy.

@VoidofLight Pokemon has very famously caused epilepsy in thousands of kids, whilst Balan hasn't affected anyone since no one is willing to play such a boring game. I think you should condemn Pokemon the same way you've unfairly condemn Balan! ;p

@jump The thing that caused Epilepsy was a pokemon anime episode, not made by the developers of the game itself.

I still think Balan is horrible, not just because of the fact that the unpatched game has a strobe light glitch at the final battle, but because the controls were made as if it were designed as a mobile game, and the suit system was needless. Too many suits had repeat abilities, and since everything was one button, some suits can only jump, others can only attack... in a platforming game.

This game has reached the small echelon of games that are so *****, it became "trendy" to say 'Nah guys, you're wrong, this is actually the greatest game ever made'.

@Pizzamorg Exactly. It was so bad that so many people are starting to try and say it was one of the best games made.

@VoidofLight all I’m saying is Balan has hurt no one whilst The Pokemon Company has put hundreds/thousands of kids into the hospital and you’re going out of your way to to not condemn them. Take a stand for what’s right!

If anything, Balan might end up falling into "so bad it's good" territory, but I do not see how anyone can unironically like this game. Just too many issues baked into its very concept and design.

@jump Balan has hurt people. Look at reviews where people mentioned how the game actually hurt loved ones or the reviewer when they got to the final boss.

@Pizzamorg, @Bolt_Strike, @VoidofLight. I remember reading this pretty positive review from Digitally Downloaded back around when the game first released, and though they admit it's not exactly good as a platformer, they think it's fine because it "wasn't really trying to be a platformer at all". So this alternative view of it, while certainly unpopular, isn't exactly new.

The actual review for anyone interested.

@RR529 I mean, it is trying to be a platformer. It was advertised as one, and mostly plays like one, does it not?

@VoidofLight God to think you could go through that crap, and then you have a seizure at the end, that is not even forgivable.

@Snatcher Yeah, it's a bit like a slap in the face towards people who even wanted to review that garbage, even if it wasn't intentional.

@VoidofLight We are gonna have to agree to disagree. I don't know if you scared of cancel culture, you enjoy kids being put into hospital because of some sort of antifa beliefs or if you're in with the big tech companies like The Pokemon Company but I am brave enough to say I condemn Pokemon and all the others who cause epilepsy and I’m not afraid to say it unlike some! ;p
