Oh wow, just looking at that makes me remember how much I hated that game. I think I played it on the Sega Genesis though.

Although the Genesis version was a completely different game, it still sucked.

It was annoying, yes, but I replayed it (yay, roms!) and it wasn't so bad, but yes, the red crystals sucked.

Oh good god...

I thought Irate Gamer was a total copy of Angry Video Game Nerd before... Until...

"You touch the ceiling you die, you touch the floor you die, even if you touch the lava you die"

VERY similar to AVGN's dialogue regarding that Silver Surfer game.

Plagarism criticism aside, Aladdin wasn't bad enough a game for him to take the piss out of it. I can understand when it's something terrible, like most of what AVGN reviews (Damn it! Still went there ), but Aladdin was one of my favourite games growing up, and it still makes a rank on what I would list as my favourite platformers.

It's like everything he criticised about the game was picking at the wrong parts. The idea of the apples is to stun enemies then use their stun to kill them off by jumping on them. The bats are piss easy to dodge. The red crystals seriously aren't that hard to get, especially the ones he tried to make seem like were impossible (HE HAD THE RAGS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! HE COULD GLIDE TOWARDS THAT ONE AT THE TOP OF THOSE STAIRS). The final boss is a lot tougher than he made it out to be (Although admittedly compared to other games it was a pretty lackluster final boss).

Why not talk about the clunky, forced movement, thanks to heavily scripted skid animation? Why not mention the genie levels, with their unpredictable nature and confusing colour scheme making it difficult first time around? Why not mention the awkward to get gold scarab things or whatever they were that give you a pretty boring bonus? Why not tear apart the totally useless flying stage which has no enemies or obstacles, just lots of gems? The only thing I agreed with was the carpet lava level.

I understand his style is to nitpick about games, but attempting to do so over a pretty decent one is stupid, especially when the end result is trying to make the game look bad. Look at Yahtzee, even when he slaughters a game's faults, he can still like it, like Bioshock, or Call of Duty 4.

It really doesn't help that despite his attempts to act over the top, he acts so over the top that it surpasses the good kind of over the top and plummets straight down into the shite kind. His special effects might be pretty decent, but that's really all he gets editing wise, as everything else makes the dialogue seem totally forced and unnatural.

Fuck Irate Gamer.

Aladdin for SNES was a bad game? I know it was as hard as a Geordie's nipples in the middle of winter, but it was a very good game imo. Same with Jungle King and Lion Book (Er, wait, wrong way round) for the SNES, as hard as crap but good games.

The Lion King! I remember that!

Aladdin was difficult. I think I may have played both versions. I remember specifically playing it on the SNES with my cousins...but I remember playing it at home too, and I had sega at the time, so...

I remember liking the Genie levels too... Prolly cuz I'm a dork for colors, and I liked how colorful they were. Teehee.

Definitely reminds me of AVGN too...but...ehh. I thought they're both pretty funny.

Irate's OK, and the AVGN's good too. Basicly, i'm on no one's side.
