Nice vid and game, do you know if the PS2 version fares any better or worse? I don't have an Xbox, but I do have a PS2 and a wheel and an urge to rally.

Not sure, like I said in the review I don't think it would be so great with the controller compared to the Xbox's, but if you have a steering wheel I guess that cancels it out.
I guess it would be okay, those sort of games across platforms in that era were almost always identical.

The Continuing Story of E.T the Extra-Terrestrial on the Atari 2600

Today we take a look at this interesting piece of gaming history, that helped with the crash of '83 and investigate subsequent urban myths about being buried in the desert.
This isn't really a review as such, as we'll be looking deeper into how this game came to be and all the drama that happened afterwards.

Re: BRIK's Reviews!LATEST VIDEO: Donkey Kong Land for Game B

Interesting to hear about the meta-story.

I liked how Rare used to have Cranky make jokes about the flashy hardware of the time, it's doubly amusing to see him talking about it this way in 2014 when it s anything but.

I've been playing the GBC Donkey Kong Country game of late. It seems to be a more faithful port of the SNES game instead of the Land games alternate riff...and of course it is in full colour (which has its own drawbacks).

From the sounds of your review they improved the save system as DKC now saves after every level is beaten, regardless of whether you collect the KONG letters. The game is extremely difficult so this is a good thing.

I might pick up the Land games at some point, they look like they suffer less from colour clash than the DKC port where the GB's limited colour palette actually works against it with the complexity of graphics on display.

Good review, anyway. I was amused by your trying to put the game in a DC. :)
