I still says it's better than ANY of the project gotham games
I almost agree. I'd say PGR2 is better in honesty.

I do miss that real time day/night thing from MSR though.

I hate respawning enemies, unless it's absolutely necessary that you have them. Sometimes they're there as a cheap way to make a game more difficult.

I haven't read through the whole thread, but has anyone suggested James Bond JNR on the SNES? It was a truly abysmal platform game from THQ! I'd love a Retro Shamer based on this title.

I'm currently playing GTAIV on the 360 (GTA is still the single most overrated series of video games in history)..... Why waste your time then? :? ................... I said it was overrated, I didn't say I didn't like it at all. I find the story fairly entertaining, It's worth a play through just ...

Probably the graphical effect used in the Konami Snes shoot 'em' up Axelay, on the vertical scrolling sections. I thought it was extremely clever at the time.

I'm currently playing GTAIV on the 360 (GTA is still the single most overrated series of video games in history) and Super Smash Bros Brawl (That's Brawl Retro Gamer. Not Melee, like you had stated in your mag for god knows how long, in your up and coming games bit :wink: ) on the Wii.

For me,

Thunderforce III on the Megadrive, Super Aleste (anyone remember that?) and Paradious on the SNES all stick out in my mind as having great soundtracks.

I've played tons of shmups in the past, but none of their soundtracks spring to mind.

I absolutely love the Retro Shamer feature. They are so well written and always bring a smile to my face with the witty remarks. I look at it like this - You know how some people like to watch the X-Factor for all the really rubbish auditions in the early part of the series? That's what Retro Shamer...
