ONM Remembered – Total Test Week, day 6

“Even if PC-style flight sims get your knickers in a twist this is still a stinker.”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 122 (November 2002)

Come the GameCube era, ONM’s Total Test was upgraded into the TNT (Total Nintendo Title) Buyer’s Guide. It’s not a bad little feature and still informs you of what’s good and what’s not, but the lack of a comprehensive list is a real shame. The magazine hadn’t the room or time to cover every single release by this point, but come on, I’d have been way more excited for the GameCube if I not only saw the good games, but knew what hot trash I was missing out on. Can you believe there were three Mary-Kate and Ashley games for it? What a novelty!
