    its nice to see that the nostalgia and greatness of older masterpieces havent rubbed off over time i completly agree with unoriginal as it would be awesome to make this a regulr feature i would love to see a re-review of Legend of Zelda Link to The Past thx

    Several months after I was born, my sister got a SNES and Super Mario WOrld. I grew up with the game. It is truly a masterpiece.

    I would love to see theese kinds of "Retro Reviews" as a regular feature. Not nececarily frequent but having an unbiased review of a classic game (trying to ignore nostalgia) with respect, of course, to the time of release. I loved seeing this, enjoyed reading it and would like to see more of it.

    I fail to see how the Bosses in Sonic are 'tacky', it's like you were just desperate for an excuse to prove your more of a Mario fan.

    Super Mario World is brilliant. Second best game ever in fact. Behind Metal Gear Solid of course. Brilliant bosses, levels and power-ups. Love it.

    I would argue that Sonic 2's boss encounters are far better than anything offering in Super Mario World. I also think you placed too much emphesis on Sonic being 'harsh' - it's level design was always meant to be a little obnoxious, that's how it rolls. Otherwise, great summary. They're both my favourite platformers hands down, and yet they offer completely different experiences.

    I'm a fifteen year old gamer, my first encounter with a console was with a PS1 and the first console I ever owned was the PS2. I downloaded sonic 2 on xbox live arcade and found it one of the best gaming exsperiences I have had in a while. I would rather pay £30 for that then play through FEAR 2, Far Cry 2, Dirt or many other next gen games.
