your all forgetting one: Barbarian 2. why take an original game like Barbarian, bugger about with it and have the guts to release it? if they wanted to make a sequel worthy of the name, they could have done a different storyline where the barbarian gets captured after the bird (the one with big norks) has been brain washed and get thrown in the dungeon only to escape, huh?

Ok not really a sequel as such but by far the biggest stinking pile of crap was sensi 98 on the playstation. The pc version at least was playable the ps version however was not.

All of the subsequent Army Men games released after the original. I remember that the very first one was fun and original when it first came out; it all went downhill from there.

Super Mario Sunshire. It is not a bad title as such, but after the brilliance of Super Mario 64, it was a huge letdown. Super Mario Galaxy on the other hand looks promising!

Yes I agree there, Super Mario Sunshie does not act or feel like a true mario game. I rather much dislike Super Mario kart Double dash aswell.

Barbarian was great for what it was, Barbarian 2 should have had Barbarian babes fighting it out one on one - forget the platform gubbins!

You made it into the magazine!

When can we expect the Repton charity tour? There had better be pictures! :D
