Retro & Classic Game Reviews

Retro Review: Sailormoon (Nintendo SNES)

Roll your eyes and laugh if you must, ladies and gentlemen, but what you are about to read is not just a review of a crappy scrolling brawler- it is, in fact, a public service announcement on why it's in your best interests to avoid it at all costs. You can thank me later.

Retro Review: Bonanza Bros. (Sega Mega Drive)

What do you get when you cross tactical espionage action with slapstick comedy? You get Bonanza Bros., a very strange game that absolutely no-one seems to like. Except for me, that is, because I always root for the underdog!

Retro Gaming Review: Midnight Run (Sony PlayStation)


With a strong back catalogue such as Konami's, you expect nothing but the best. Midnight Run is an arcade port of one of their racing games, released the same year as the fantastic 'Streets of Rage meets Outrun' racer; Ray Tracers. But it might be the one Konami would rather forget.

Retro Review: Pu.Li.Ru.La (Arcade)
