Zig, you've outdone yourself.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

Fuck! Fake-ending a review -- with a score and everything -- was an idea I've had for a while, and now you've done it! Bastard!

Awesome review, in any case. You REALLY didn't want to lose this week, did you?


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

Thank you! No, I don't want to lose again =P

I actually did the fake-out ending way way way way back in the GameFAQs days (for the same game no less, although it's a totally rewritten review) but I think it works a lot better here at HG.

The fake final score is one of the more innovative ideas I've seen in a long time.

I know there are some games that I initially like, then dislike them more as time goes on, and vice versa.

I can't believe this piece of shit beat out Dagoss' solid review for "Mega Man 9" in the TT, but I guess there's no accounting for taste in the judging. The awful "fake score" gimmick, followed by the cries of "It can't end like that. It won't end like that!" (Nice emphasis Zigzwag) should have disqualified this crud alone. Devoting half the review to a sub B-level video game saga, though, that's the real kicker.

I like how this stuff is primed up to be "Citizen Kane" or "The Godfather" or something. I like how the screenshot of the mundane Sega CD cinema next to the review discredits your exclamation that "Annet's confrontation with the Nazi commander early in the game reeks of style." Yeah, that's real Michael Mann stuff right there. "Thief?" "Manhunter?" "Heat?" They're all nothing next to the lo-res glitz of Anet Futatabitablahblahblah. Geoffrey Unsworth himself would be put to shame by that stunning 16-bit cinematography!

On behalf of the site, Dagoss, I would like to apologize for this garbage being favored over your "Mega Man 9." If you really want to win some TT rounds, bring some pointless gimmicks and laughable "passion" ("I waited seven years for this!") to the table. Them judges, they go for that stuff.

Nice review, Zig. I enjoyed it and appreciate the great effort you put into documenting these lesser known games fully and accurately. Over the years it's certainly had a strong influence in my approach to a lot of the arcade games I try to cover.
