Zev Wolf says:

Was not planning on buying this game as I believe it to be a bit overpriced and would like the frame rate issues resolved, but after watching this mans beautiful review of this game I think I will buy it solely to relive the nostalgia of this flawless review. My life has changed.

Wow, this brings back memories…. I still have my original brick Gameboy that came with this game. Got it for my birthday when I was like 8 years old. Probably won't ever get rid of them.
