Re: 600 Games - Review Database

I realized that with my current metric, I'll start running into issues with better games where all the review breakdowns would start to look exactly the same. After give it a lot of thought, I decided to update it with something that provides potential for more variety in scoring. I think this is a lot better... Learn as you go I guess...

Shining in the Darkness - 6.6
Mortal Kombat - 5.7

It's like when you're reading a great book and you reach the end of a chapter and find you can't start reading the next chapter until you've re-read the last 10 pages of this chapter 20 times in a row :D

Would love to hear an informed opinion on the Shining in the Darkness romhacks recently released at romhacking.net, if you're into playing those. :)

I love romhacks, but it's a bit outside the scope of my projects. Maybe after I finally break down and buy a flashcart for the Genesis I'll give it a closer look!

Also...

Marko - 4.9

Just read your review on Aladdin (Genesis). i actually just finished playing this myself for the first time, and i agree that it was surprisingly average. i was actually really disappointed with the final battle against Jafar. especially when comparing it to images I've seen of the SNES version.

Anyway, keep up the good work.

Thanks man! Here's the latest batch...

Zombies Ate My Neighbors - 6.8
Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine - 6.8
Earthworm Jim - 6.9
Aladdin - 7.2
Formula One - 7.1
Sonic the Hedgehog - 8.0

I also wrote a large post articulating my review methodology which you may suffer through here.

Sonic really surprised me as I've always been in the camp that remembers it fondly but believed it got much more praise than it deserved. I was actually pleasantly surprised with how it turned out!
