How is it that Tyrian got a lower rating than two very crappy games (Astrofire,which has only set directions you can shoot and is very buggy & Cash Invaders, having crappy graphics and worse power ups and interface than Tyrian aaaaaaand both these games are years after Tyrian). Please tell me
Peace

Go Astrofire. I used to play that thing for hours. The last level, instead of rocks. There Barney Heads!!!

I think Dogbreath or Emmzee did those ratings. Anyway it's just a opinion. I hate tyrian Tbbbbbth! and DG or Em thinks that way to. Good job!

Emmzee did them soley... if I had, I would've given Tyrian a perfect score, it's that good. But this is most likely a matter of personal opinion, so it's probably not going to change soon.

Yup, all of the ratings on dosgames.com are done by me and are fairly arbitrary. Wink If I were to redo the entire site, I'd make it so users could add their own ratings/reviews of the games. That, however, would be an extremely massive project that I don't have the time or experience to undertake at the moment. I'm currently reworking one of my other sites, vgstores.com, to include stuff like user reviews, so hopefully with that experience I can start making some plans for the monumentous task of redoing dosgames.com sometime in the future ... Happy

Do you realize you're the first person in 6 years to call me that? Weird.

Anyhow, I will await the review script patiently... though when Z2 announced it was creating one, it took 10 months to "complete." Wink (Granted A; it is a very nice script and B; there was a lot of procrastination/ blatant laziness and it was written by a 16/17 year old... but still...)
