Hey!  I have no mouth.

Hey there and welcome to the Classic Review Archive!

Wow, nearly 6 months since the last update. ARGH. One day, I WILL revamp this site, keep it updated, make it look nice - but who knows when that day will be....

Also as a quick note: Leif, one of reviewers here, is part of a band Signal 12 whose music has been featured in the Playstation game Road Rash: Jailbreak. I haven't tried the game myself yet, but keep your ears open for it (the tune is named "Bye Bye Biff!")

I'd like to recruit regular people to do reviews. If you like writing, voicing your opinions and/or complaining about things, plus have an obsessive interest in older video games (like me!) then you're a great candidate! Just drop me a line for details! We're no longer limited to just the NES! Just let me know what game you want to do...we're mostly concentrating on NES, Sega Master, Genesis, Sega CD and SNES, but Turbografx and Gameboy game reviews are also accepted (import reviews are OK too.) Just remember though...detailed reviews. Take a look around here for examples of what we want. Thanks!

129 NES games
32 SNES game!
32 Genesis games
8 SMS games
5 Sega CD games 1 Turbografx game

Because I enjoy bragging about my video games, here's my list o' stuff that I own. if you have a question about something on there, or want to request a review, just ask.
