Dagoss, I usually enjoy your writings, but this review lacks purpose -- you don't analyze the game you review! I played Fantasia just now to take some screenshots of it. And yes, the game is very bad. A nice little paragraph would be sufficient to explain the game's faults, namely that it has stiff control, poor hit detection, and Micky can only conjure a few offensive attacks before he's out of magical ammo. You should probably also state that this is a platformer. Otherwise, I'm not sure what this article's purpose is or why it needs to appear as a review.

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

I agree. I wanted to try a different angle, but perhaps I did not find the best one. I thought an irrelevant game should be treated irrelevantly, especially when it misses the point as badly as this one did. Live and learn.

Hey dagoss, I like where you were going with this review, in terms of an unorthodox approach to an address a game that almost doesn't deserve to be addressed.

But let me tell you what I came away with, to give you an idea of the impact of your approach: I literally thought that Fantasia might be a game that just introduces kids to music, much like your experiences with the movie.

It actually didn't occur to me that it might be a platformer or a game at all, until I saw Felix's comments and checked the screenshots.

But I applaud your courage in trying something new.

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!
