Super Bases Loaded Review

Super Bases Loaded Review SNES

Author: sull56ivan2010 The Bases Loaded series is something I haven’t been huge on as far as discovering older sports games. Regarding the first ones on NES, they are okay, but the fielding was kind of shoddy. It had the presentation, looking like a game on TV, but not the greatest …

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures Review SNES

Author: John Legendoffzelda The first review of a Super Nintendo game I ever wrote was my hard pan of Super Star Wars. And looking back I see my review was a little vague about what I found so disappointing. You see, the issue is not about how “the only good …
