Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

I still have a Sega Mega Drive and Nintendo 64.
Still play them sometimes, Sonic The Hedgehog, Streets Of Rage, Super Mario 64, Wave Race, Diddy Kong Racing. All great games, some of the only ones I own for the Sega and Nintendo.

Graphics
Impressive and unique level design. Excellent 3D rendered characters and environments. Vivid and colourful. The extreme yellows of Hornet's Hole contrast well with the pale blue(s) of Arctic Abyss. A visual treat.
5/5

Gameplay
Enjoyable and challenging. Solid controls that take effort to master (i.e. the 'roll jump'). Decent plot. Well-hidden secrets and easter eggs force the player to explore stages throughly. The ability to control a variety of animals (Rambi, Engarde) is a brilliant addition. Difficulty level progresses naturally. While Donkey Kong Country 2 plays very similar to the original, the sequel contains many improvements and added depth.
5/5

Sound
Excellent soundtrack, with each musical piece differing from the next. Highly atmospheric and effective. The score accompanying Windy Well is brilliant, and matches Squawk's flight perfectly. The defeat music matches it designated level. Nice attention to detail. An enjoyable listen.
5/5

Entertainment
Very entertaining throughout, if slightly repetitive. Levels such as Rickety Race break up the platforming action. Bonus stages and trivia challenges a nice touch. Ability to re-visit levels and navigate map also effective. Frustration does set in during later levels however. Climbing sections will require numerous plays (e.g. Toxic Tower). As do harder bosses. Their patterns must be learnt if you are to advance (Kreepy Krow's egg attack). Final cutscene(s) conclude game nicely, whilst leaving room for a sequel.
4.5/5

TOTAL: 19.5/20
A near perfect SNES title. Recommended. A cornerstone in retro gaming.
Loved Diddy Kong's Quest. DKC was one of the best ever when it came out. Still plays pretty well

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

Why is there no market for side scrollers anymore when people obviously still love them. Its kinda sad. Aside from Paper Mario on Wii I can't think of another popular side scrolling game from the last few years.

Its because they wont sell unless theyre on the handhelds or as a downloadable title on XBL or PSN. The only games that can probably pull it off now are games like Mario, Sonic and Castlevainia. Everything else would be considered as "dated" no matter how great they are.

There are a few newer games like Braid and Muramasa that are good, but they are arcade and handheld titles respectivley.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

I hated Super Paper Mario. Returned it to the store.

Side scrollers rule by the way, was just playing Super Mario World, up to the Forest of Illusion place .

It is a great game and part of a superb trilogy. I never completed Animal Antics or whatever it was called, that level destroyed me.

Also, I hate to be pedantic and be that guy, but it's actually called Diddy's Kong Quest, not Diddy Kong's Quest . I never noticed this until someone pointed it out to me very recently.
