Snow Bros.

Rating: B

This game is a gem. Imagine Bubble Bobble with better graphics and with snowmen instead of little dinosaurs. And instead of blowing bubbles at your enemies you roll them into snowballs. AND THE GRAPHICS ALONE WILL KICK YOUR ASS.

There's only one problem: some group of marketing idiots decided not to release this game in the US--in fact, I don't think it was even released in Europe, only Japan. What the hell? This is one of the best Genesis/Megadrive games I've ever played (er, on an emulator), but it's Japan-only, AND NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND. And I'd score this game even higher but I don't want to give even more people the idea that they should go looking for it, because then my chances of finding it would be even slimmer. As it is, I don't think I'll ever get my hands on this cartridge, unless maybe I decide to spend a few hundred dollars, or more, and I don't think I'm that desperate for anything, other than crack cocaine.
