You'll probably notice them too but have a hard time bringing yourself to care much. The limited roster, the initial lack of difficulty and even the control scheme might disappoint initially, but it's easy to forgive those potential pitfalls in the face of the otherwise exemplary execution and the satisfaction that comes from boxing against such a colorful cast of characters. Whether you're returning to the franchise for the hundredth time or just encountering it for the first, this revival surely ranks among the most worthwhile that the industry has ever seen. Little Mac wins again!"
