Finished: - Trial of Skill - Shining Aqua/Phantasystarhero (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8066) 6/10 (but try it anyway)

Currently Reviewing: H.A.T.E 2 - Voltiare

...and after that: SEMINAL GEMINI - Ninjamicwz/Neverynnal

.....................
Create mode is starting to bog me down a bit and I need an excuse to look at other peoples levels instead of my own - So why not do a few reviews?

I'll take 5 to start with and if all goes well (and people want more) I might continue afterwards

I wont use a rating system as they are rarely fair (for example some games arnt meant to have a story, or be complex) instead I will review the levels under several categories and how well each category fits into the overall level. The categories are:

CONCEPT
This is a comparison of how original the idea behind the level is and what to expect inside - as well as what makes it different from other levels.
Levels such as tributes will rarely apply here

STORY/THEME
This is a basic overview of the quality/theme to the level - not all levels will have a story, but most will (and should) have an theme to them. A random selection of object made from 30 different materials for example will most likely not have a good theme.

VISUALS
This section is fairly self explanatory, its how the level looks (this also ties in to the concept/theme of the level) - From flowing backgrounds to clever stickering it all falls under this category.

MECHANICS
This section is about the actual function of the level - If I ever see a section where I think "wow thats really clever" or some other ingenious use of tools to create an effect It'll be in here - remember Clever does not always mean complicated.

GAMEPLAY
This a sort of catch-all section for how the level plays, difficulty of puzzles/challenges and so on.

HI POINTS/LOW POINTS
This final category covers the "ooh's and ahh's" as well as the "uh-oh's" of a level, Areas that shine with amazing polish and areas that may need a bit more work

..............

So anyone want a review?

(oh and feel free to add a brief description so I can see what you were aiming for in that particular masterpiece)

Well, feel free to review mine if you want if you've got some time to kill.
Just don't break any controllers in the process.

It's down there \/ (probably easiest to just look up PhantasyStarHero)

Well if you can manage to grab a buddy, please review SEMINAL GEMINI (2 Player only) by myself and NinjaMicWZ. It is under NinjaMicWZ's PSN. Hope you have fun :)

Add me on PSN if you need a buddy to run through it Genji. I think playing with someone who knows the level will benefit your experience, and our score...hahaha :p

Hey, remember the game Blast Chamber for PSX? Yeah, nobody does, but I do because I got it with my first Playstation. Now, I made a level in tribute to this horrible game, but nobody seems to want to play it. My PSN's TheOgre, and I want to have people play my level and give me feedback, and I will return the favor. Just post on here your level and your PSN and I will give you feedback. Any you could give me would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, and when I say horrible, I mean that in the most endearing way possible. It was the game that I loved but no one would play with me, like Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball.

Level: Blast Chamber
PSN: TheOgre

Hey MrGenji, if you want to, i would like a review of Dr. Tecnova's Lair, but i'd understand if you dont want to. however, if later on you wanted to do a review of the complete story, since i'm working on the boss battle, I'd like that a lot. (BTW i saw that you played it, on the scores... please dont be too critical right now, as it is in early beta...)

cool glad to see your doing this. if you get around to it i wouldnt mind a review of my level zombie onslaught or zombie zombiez you take your pick. zombie onslaught is a survival challange where you are in a barn and defend from an endless zombie army that progressively gets harder.... i wont give too much away

zomg zombiez is just a fun adventure (standard level) w/ some unique content and challanges
