Eurogamer: Virtual Console Roundup

Eurogamer has posted a multi-review of four virtual console titles. The descriptions and scores are as follows.

Ys Book 1 and 2
For anyone who likes the scope of early JRPGs but can't be arsed with all the peripheral clutter, Ys is the ideal download. It's fast-paced, cleverly structured and it lets you get on with actually playing the thing. And let's not forget, you get two games for the price of one. 8/10

DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure
If DoReMi has one unavoidable flaw it's that it has no ideas of its own, and its entertainment value is based on how well it provides more of the same rather than anything unique to this adventure. Still, it's a joy to play and definitely worth your time. 8/10

The sad thing is, the caves actually seem like a lot of fun to explore - or at least they would be if the game didn't bump you off every time a gentle breeze blew a speck of dust into your shoe. The collision detection is sometimes wonky, and the stiff controls take some getting used to, but it's an otherwise-interesting platformer, let down by needlessly harsh gameplay. 5/10
