    I dig Curse. The frame rate may be low, but the gameplay is very enjoyable and the music is memorable. (Even if it rips off "Here Comes the Sun." :D )

    BTW the first Smurfs game is really quite...

    Don't get me wrong, Barone -- it's easy to see that Eliminate Down is a labor of love, with tons and tons of TLC put into it.

    I guess I just think a game's #1 priority should always be fair play....

    Ah, got it. Wasn't sure if I was missing anything, given how difficult combat can sometimes be. Is there leveling-up in this game or is character growth all done with items/weapons?

    Thanks, profholt82. Maybe I hit the Ikari angle hard, but playing Rambo and seeing how many tics it adopts from SNK's game, it really felt like "Ikari done right on a console".

    $300 certainly ruled the system out for me and my family. Mind you, $250 would still have been out, but less so. But sub-$100 was the magic number for anything.

    That said, honestly I didn't drool...

    I can see why someone might play a few stages and think Valis III has an adequate amount of charm. To me it tanked not in the ice stage, but in the preceding one, where the game begins to spawn these...
