I always thought this game looked really neat back when Nintendo Power covered it. But I never played it. I'm not sure if I'd want to now! BTW, do you own Hybrid Heaven?

And just to point out, the second to last sentence in the third paragraph and the second sentence in the last paragraph have typos.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

Well, that's embarrassing.

I always feel bad when I give a game a bad score. I feel like I'm not being fair or I'm nit-picking too much. There's probably someone out there that really likes it.

And no, I don't own Hybrid Heaven. It's on the list of N64 games I want to get sometime eventually.

I gave that game to one of the no-shows for the BWHY.


For us. For them. For you.

Good review. I was expecting a lower score in the end; six seems rather generous for something you're suggesting people don't bother with.

Also, watch your metaphors: "the framerate, which usually stutters like a virgin in a women's locker room, normalizes into something playable" is one of those "writer's extravagances" that adds little beside the writer amusing himself. Same goes for the elderly man with Parkinson's; it's just not amusing enough for the uphill battle it creates for you to make your point (I immediately start to question whether the framerate could be that bad, so you've got to work harder to prove your point).

Aside from these potshots, the framerate issue isn't really substantiated with evidence. But it wouldn't really need to be without these lines drawing attention to the lack of depth behind the statements. More importantly, how does the bad framerate affect the game? It might be better to expound upon that than just lambast it with Leno monologue jokes.
