Street Fighter II Review

Street Fighter II Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda A great video game presents immaculate execution of its ideas for interactive entertainment. A great video game sequel uses this feat to override its existence as a follow-up.

Super Smash TV Review

Super Smash TV Review Super Nintendo

Author: John Legendoffzelda Released in video arcades back in 1990, the satirical and gory gun-fest Smash TV only wished it could adequately contribute to the decline of western civilization.
