For those reading one of my SNES review blogs for the first time, here is the basic concept:
"While the SNES was a constant presence in my childhood, I never had a large collection of games for it. In fact, many of the games I played I still don't know the names of. It wasn't until I say the uproar over Breath of Fire 6 that I knew I played Breath of Fire 1 in the SNES.
After reading the excellent top 100 SNES games list by IGN:
I decided to go back and play those 100 games and review them. Well, as I looked closer at the list, I realized that there are many genres that did not age well from the SNES (racing, sports) and many other genres that I am simply not good at (shmups, arcade shooters) and others that I need other players to play against for an accurate representation (fighters). Also, I played many of the more well known games such as Final Fantasy and Super Metroid."
This is going to be another legacy review from the forum I first started this task, so I am still embarrassed about showing it here.
Also, here are a number of extra rules for Destructoid:
-If you have any suggestion of a game that is not in the IGN list that I should review, please suggest it.
-Make a bet on each game to check whether Chris Charter played it or not.
Without further ado, here is:
65- R-Type III: The Third Lightning:
Genre: Side-Scrolling Shooter.
If you are not a fanatic of this genre, it would take you approximately 1023740 hours to finish the game. If you are, then an hour to get used to it, and then an hour ti finish it will be the average amount.
Of course, if you are a fan of this genre, then you should have already played this game and finished it five times already. If you somehow missed this. go play it now, plenty of insanity in this game.
Lord Spencerís Score:
This game beat me, but I did not feel frustrated at the game, because I knew the game is beatable. Even though I did not posses the skills to do so. This is a genre that existed because of the strong community gaming back then.
People all over town would play the game and brag about their excellence, or their big brother's excellence in beating the game. It represented something mystical in a gone age.
Oh, and one boss shots giant sperms at you. Talk about taking the rape metaphor literally.
Overall: 4/14/7/2/7 34/50
I can confidently say that this is the least accurate score I ever did. Simply because I never managed to finish the game. I asked my friend to do this review but he declined, because he knows little english. And I doubt his Arabic knowledge as well. He knows binary though.
