“A classic Eighties shooter returns but hold on a minute… weren’t Eighties games rank?”

from Nintendo Pro issue 33 (2000)

Thanks to Nintendo Pro’s love of characters, this isn’t just a typical review index: this is a review safari, where the resident warden Parkie guides you on a tour through the treacherous genre jungles.

It’s… a cute idea, I suppose, though the execution leaves plenty to be desired. Flipping through six consecutive pages of perfect white grids and the same fuzzy Banjo-Kazooie backdrop grows quite tiresome – and that’s before it messes with my head by not organising the games alphabetically. Kudos for breaking the mould, but couldn’t they have given the genres identifiable icons or something?
