Game Review

Reviewing a retro video game differs in many ways from your traditional video game review. In general, a video game review is written as close to the release date as possible, if not before it's even been released, so as to obtain as much exposure as possible to the article in question while interest in the subject is at it's peak. In a normal video game review, comparisons and observations are made keeping in mind current day gameplay mechanics and expectations of growth within the video game industry. But in a retro Game Review, one must be willing to make many sacrifices and be able to live in both the present and the past.
