Good improvement!

Also, sorry if I come across as pedantic when I'm proofreading.

And I completed the others as well! Excellent thoughts and ideas.
I completely forgot about the Wonder Boy / Adventure Island TR post :)

To me it's the other way around; SM is a disappointing sequel while TGR is a pretty good euro-style platformer and a bit better than the MD game.


Interesting. You're the first person I've ever hard with this opinion.

Being a bit better than the Mega Drive game isn't exactly high praise though. That game is awful.

A pretty good euro-style platformer from this time is around average in the bigger perspective in my book. So I wouldn't list either as defining or a gem to be clear.

I mean, the top review of that google thread is saying that Secret Mission is the pick of the bunch.

To be clear, the bit I'd never heard anyone claim before is that Great Rescue was any good. I had the Mega Drive game as a kid and I'm a huge Asterix fan, but even then I knew the game was pretty bad.

The point was that it's not rated highly in general.

Well, differing opinions etc. To get to what was actually bothering me - I would just avoid statements like "avoid this game" or vice versa without any explanation attached to it since it's lazy and uninformative.

Anyway, nice updates on the article to whoever participated.
