    Bah, you beat me to it while I was looking for this thread Good video, it's a compilation of reviews from other people who sent them in, rather than one from James himself.

    Was it me, or did the new review seem...forced?

    That's because it wasn't James reviewing the game. It was comprised of a bunch of e-mails he got from people who reviewed it.

    Yea I did not like it, 1:10m intro + 30sc ending in a 8:20m video it was to short. We did not get to see his face boo I want to see him get mad at the games and hit them with a hammer or something. It sucked.

    I know, but...I don't know.

    He could have used the material and elaborate something with more "feel". Not try to cram as much as possible.

    He should have gone with the flow...I mean, was it really necessary to have all those "criticisms" at the end? And at such a "crammed" pace?

    I mentioned the ledges in the e-mail I sent him. Then again I'm sure a lot of people did...

    I love James and I'm not going to hate on him for doing something different, but as an "experimental" piece, ultimately I think that this wound up not working as well as it could have.

    His reveal that there were over 6000 entries probably made the process of narrowing down the BEST (or even reading all of the emails) impossible.

    So what we were left with was a bunch of AVGN fans doing their best AVGN impression via email, which ... James read, amicably.

    Again, it's his show and he can do whatever he likes with it. It's cool to mix stuff up like this, but I think that at the end of the day this was just James inadvertently doing a bad impression of himself via a script from his fans, and unfortunately missing a great opportunity to review a classicaly BAD NES game from an early enough period in NES games (very close to launch) that a TON of people bought it without knowing any better.

    It's one of those NES games that everybody had, and everybody regretted having aquired / rented / played.

    You couldn't have put it better. It actually got on my nerves enough I didn't watch the whole thing - which is rare because I love his stuff.

    not everybody, I bought it back in the day and loved it, it was hard as hell at first but once you made a few maps and/or just avoided where the invisible dungeons were (I admit that was stupid) it was a really decent game,

    I love avgn's style and creativity even when he bashes some of my favorate games ,afterall its all in fun and you can tell how much he really does love classic gaming., but yeah this episode felt forced and got on my nerves near the end, but sometimes you have to throw a bone to your fans, even if its covered in dogshit :-)

    I know.

    The end was pretty much like this:

    INSULT
    INSULT
    INSULT
    READING MORE INSULTS FROM SCRIPT (was obvious)
    INSULT
    INSULT
    ...
    ...
    END

    Kinda sad, really. If he wanted to try this experiment again, he has to ignore 99% of all insults and concentrate on gameplay faults, like he always had. Ask fans to help analyze faults, not come up with new insults.

    Yeah... as much as I hate to pile on with a few others, this was my least favorite. :-( Oh well. Even if it satisfied those few folks who had their material read in the episode, it's probably a success. It didn't appeal to me, however.

    Yeah...typically I tend to have last-minute additions to my completed posts once I see them posted/read them.

    I stand corrected!

    Did you ever finish it?

    Yeah, I remember playing Deadly Towers at my friend's house in early 1988 before I had an NES. It was horrible and I don't think I ever played another Broderbund game again.

    I disagree with James about the cover art, though. I find nothing wrong with it. It's actually pretty good.

    I'm in agreement with pretty much everything that was posted here. I appreciate James for trying to be innovative, but it just didn't work out this time. This one failed miserably. I didn't laugh once because it was so apparent how forced the profanity and insults were.

    But, as I said, I appreciate the experiment. I'm not knocking James for that. I just have to admit that I didn't enjoy it... not even a little.

    The Nerd's Deadly Towers (fan written) review wasn't one of his best, but I actually liked it better than the last Batman video (the annoying "Joker" killed it for me) and only a little less than his Superman reviews.

    Hmm I see, I had that game long ago. I agree.. It's "unF*ckworthy".
