hells yes, I have one of those Rayman PC games with the level editor and tons of user-made levels and some of them make the original game a joke by comparison. bunch of true sadists there.

I liked this review and probably would have given it around an 80 if you made it in on time. proofread it again though, and if I were critiquing it I'd probably say it's vague in places. the bit about the trumpets was cool; but using more examples (and more concrete examples, in the case of that eyes paragraph--that got kind of unclear) would really help this review shine, but I still liked it and your point about the art style making you want to keep plowing through the challanges is dead on. it's why I played the hell out of this when I was a kid.

wouldn't feel right not offering a bit of a critique, considering. :P

I liked finding the cages, too, since there were only a few per level and it wasn't on par with the obnoxious collecting that's so pervasive in platformers.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

Thank you. I agree with your complaint about the eyes. I was wondering how to make it read better prior to subbing it, but I hadn't settled on a clear manner in which to explain what exactly I was thinking. I'll definitely try to clear that up in the next few days.

Maybe I'll elaborate a few of the examples, too. First I think I want to experience more, though. I know I could have sat on this review a while longer for such a thing, but I chose not to since I had originally intended to submit this for the most recent competition. Technical difficulties (my inept gaming abilities) made that impossible.

how far have you made it? it's a really hard game, the first world isn't bad at all but it really ramps up by the time you get into Band Land and especially the Blue Mountains.

There's this girl I know, okay? This girl that I am completely and totally 100% head over heels short of breath every few seconds in love with, alright? I was leaving work this one day when she was there. so we walked past my department (electronics, of which I am its master), hand in hand. So we're walking past the Wii games and she turns to me and says, "Oh my God, James, I remember this game!"

She's pointing excitedly at Rayman: Waving Wabbids for the Wii.

"But I remember the old old Rayman. With the hair and the hands? You know?"

Of course I knew. How could I not fucking know? I mean I know everything about nothing; it is what I am paid to know.

Later, while housesitting for some neighbors, I go through their video game collection (We Love Katamari is great; Oblivion is horrific shit garbage FYI) and discover it:

RAYMAN GREATEST HITS FOR THE SONY PLAYSTATION COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

I take it back home and throw it into my sleek, sexy Playstation 3 (on the exact same day the game is available to download through the Playstation store, coincidentally enough).

Five minutes later I'm wondering what this bull shit is and who is behind it. I uh didn't really like the game all that much. Instead of that, I spent my time listening to Maki Nomiya's sweet voice and finding out that the best way to play Oblivion (besides the obvious snarky answer of "not playing it") is to play some punk rock music via the X-Box 360's custom soundtrack and yell out "SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" to the NPC's who are trying to tell you about some sort of important item hidden in the cave of Obsidian Nareltagoth off the path leading off of Mount Tritanius Galsomswitch.

As for the girl, I haven't seen her in weeks, except for a few glimpses here and there. It's a damn heart-breaking shame and I'd literally murder someone to see her again (okay so maybe not but I'd fuckin' hurt you, dog).

This was a good review. I liked it.

Through the spirits of my deceased ancestors, I miraculously made it to Pencil Pentathlon. The erasers are proving to be menacing.

And thank you, kind HMD. You are so wise.
