Must start advertising that Zzapbible, it's my most proud part of the site and yet not many people seem to know about it. Zzapbible banner ads here we go!

Delta was rated too low, Nemesis was rated too high, in my opinion... (both should have been mid-eighties, Delta probably a percent or two higher)


Nemesis only got 80%! :lol:

Oh, I thought it got more. Still, I stand by what I said. Both should have been mid-eighties :)

I was always shocked at the score for the music in Spellbound - from memory it got something like 60odd percent and said another assault on the ears by Rob Hubbard. I loved the music on that game - deserved high 80's at the very least

If that is the case, then I think the reviewers were correct - Though the game was very popular in sales terms, I do believe its way too easy and not very impressive at all.

It got a ZERO in CU. Or was that the Firebird one?

Speaking of harsh ratings, CU gave Deceptor a ''1'', while it was a pretty good, original game. Zzap! rated the disk version 80%.
I wanted to include it into the DEF Tribute, but it was infact only to point and laugh at CU, so I dropped it. (there was already enough pointing and laughing at CU in it, hehe)

I always wondered whether Zzap! went ape over that game just because they really wanted a decent Transformers game, but the two to date had been appalling. I never really liked Deceptor, but I think 1/10 is very harsh indeed (even for the tape version); that said, I'd have been perfectly happy giving the disk version a 4 or 5.

Would have to say that the Amiga versions of Turrican 2 and Lemmings deserved a Gold Medal rather than a Sizzler
