Nice job. It's funny -- there's no middle ground with this game. People either love it or hate it. I get the impression some people even hate it because others love it. But you are totally in the cool book for loving it (assuming this isn't a joke review, in which case I feel like a fool).

This review was a quick read and very well written. And I disagree with you on the point that people either love it or hate it, Masters. There's definitely a lot of varying opinions, like seemingly every popular SNES game has nowadays, but there are people like me that just found it to be another average space shooter. :)

I stand corrected PP. But in my small circle, it seemed as if people were either saying "wow this is a rocking SNES shooter!" or else "SNES shooters suck, and here's the best proof". I guess there are you indifferent folks too! ^_^

This isn't a joke review at all. In fact, I received so much flak when I first posted this here (on the very basis that I -- gasp -- liked the game) that I figured this thread would just be another potshot. Thanks for proving me wrong, and for the comments. I wrote this review at least two years ago and I feel I've grown a lot as a reviewer since then, but this is one of the few reviews from my pre-HG days that holds up fairly well.

Ha, I would think you'd know I wouldn't be potshotting anyone. Especially considering when you came out with your praise review, my 10/10 review for the same game was already up. I've been catching flak with my score for even longer, sadly.

I wouldn't expect it from you, no, but I first saw this thread on the front page and didn't know who wrote it. So I saw it and thought, "Oh boy, here we go again..."

I knew you'd written a 10/10 review as well, but that was before my time so I wasn't sure if people had been giving you a hard time about it as well. We're in this together, you and I.

Yeah, lots of folks had this big hate on the SNES campaign going back in the day which is only now subsiding. They derided it for its use of Mode 7 and its popularity and the level of intelligence of its 'drooling fans'. Space Megaforce was one of the more popular targets as far as the SNES's actually library went.

And a fair target it is.


For us. For them. For you.
