Fantasy Zone Review

That actually makes sense to me. Sometimes, cutesy graphics and characters don't appeal to the person looking for harder-edged SHMUPs

I never actually Fantasy Zone in my local arcade either. But then again, I didn't see every cabinet they had in there, so I very well could have just overlooked it.

I think first heard about Fantasy Zone when I was looking for games to get for the Sega Master System. I liked the game well enough. But I was really impressed when I discovered the arcade version on Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. Such great music.

Super Mario World Review

Agreed. When it wasn't until many years after SMW that it dawned on me that the game didn't have quite as many interesting power-ups as SMB3. But I still really enjoy both games regardless of their differences.

I also love me some Donkey Kong Country (and DKC2)!

For me, Yoshi's Island wins favorite platformer on the SNES, but only due to its hand-drawn visual style. But truth be told, I still haven't beaten the game. It's been a very long time since I've made an honest attempt to play through to the end. I remember it got difficult to a point where I couldn't seem to progress forward. Can't remember if I kept dying or maybe just got hung up on a level design I couldn't solve.

But I do want to start fresh and attempt to beat Yoshi's Island at least once.

F-1 Race Review

Like you and SanAndreas mentioned, I agree that F-1 Race was more about the 4 player adapter than anything else. My brother and never had other friends around to play it with of course. In fact, he was narrowing that game from a friend, so we didn't have the 4 player adapter anyway.

Yeah, those hairpin turns are the worst. It wouldn't be so bad if the lead CPU car also had to slow down or otherwise made a mistake now and then. But the game gives no such consession.

Final Fantasy IV Review

If memory serves correctly, I think you have to remove any metal armor and weapons and used wooden versions of them (or something like that) until a turning point with one of the boss encounters when you can equip everything again.

That's precisely why I like to include gameplay footage of anything I review if possible.
