The review is more about the games than the service, allthough what's written about it is very positive.

The games generally also got positive reviews (but is Aleste 2 really THAT difficult?), except for Frantic ("a good idea gone bad...much like communism" - ouch!)
It's nice to see the vision of non-MSX'ers on these games. I'm kinda surprised how they like Undeadline better than Aleste 2 Smile

Long time ago, when I first played Aleste2, I remember finding it very very difficult as well. Slowly but surely I mastered the game though. I can't say the same about Undeadline though, where for me only finishing the Forest level is quite a breeze.
