    It's too short, but it does a fair job of describing the game. The review's tone reminds me of those brief reviews from Atari-era magazines like Electronic Fun, and that's a plus.

    The whole first line of the review should be deleted and it should just start with the second paragraph. Overall it needs a bit more streamlining, a bit more information about its original and the gameplay.

    No music? Again? *sigh* Also, how can the classic shooter be BACK? This is about as old-school classic as it gets, and that was accentuated WAY too much. No depth really. Needs work. 4/10.

    5 / 10

    There was some very good information in this review, but the style needs to be tightened up considerably.

    There were parts of this review that were actually painful to read. This sentence in particular made me cringe...

    Most folks will clear round one after a few games and it may not seem like much, but the first time you reach the third round you'll understand why you once wore diapers and now that you are a grown man you'll really have to concentrate and hone your reflexes.
    To that I say "Wha???"

    I'm interested in this game now thanks to this review, I just feel that the review could have been writtren better.

    I'm just confused. Ebivision? Alfred? Igor? Huh?

    Nonetheless, I do get a vague impression of the nature of the game.

    6/10

    Very poorly written, with a host of unanswered questions.

    2/10.

    Tonight will be the last batch of "cuts".

    If your review isn't locked at midnight tonight, you're entitled to the Digital Press subscription, and your review will be moved onto the main contest site.

    Unfortunately, not every review will make it.

    This one is getting cut. Low review scores from our judges and forum. Sorry! Thanks for playing though... there are lots more contests coming up
