    Genesis

    I'll have to give Robocod another chance. The original James Pond was one of my first Genesis rentals, and I remember it fondly, though I think I spent more time listening to the title screen with my headphones than playing the game. I also liked how playing as a fish made the game feel so different being able to swim around everywhere. I think my reaction to James Pond II was similar to how so many ToeJam & Earl fans perceived Panic on Funkatron. It just felt like they altered the formula too much for me, and being able to stretch up felt like a useless gimmick.

    I was surprised to see David say how simple Sword of Vermillion is since it always looked very ambitious (for the time) with the dungeon view, overhead battles, and one-on-one boss combat. It's just that it doesn't do any of those things particularly well. I still think I should make an effort to beat it someday. I remember the VG&CE review going on about how solid the story and soundtrack were. Just seems like it's more effort than it's worth.
