Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 24/10/96

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Sonic spelling errors

Sonic The Hedgehog needs no introduction (if he does, try http://www.sega.com/features/sonic3d/). What he clearly needs is a proofreader. The image you see before you comes from the installation routine for Sonic CD, the blue powerball's first venture onto the PC platform. Apart from being nothing like the install process described in the manual, check out the spelling of the word 'completed'.

Given this error, it should come as no surprise that the game is a tad disappointing. Basically, Sonic is all about speed, and on PC, speed is something he just hasn't got. At some points, the game pauses mid-flight while new levels load from the CD. (Yes, you can load the whole thing on the hard drive, but who has 155M to spare?) To add insult to injury, the damn thing won't run at all on my home PC. It's all too much. Take me back to PacMan.

Gusworld promises that tomorrow's rant will not be related to children's toys.
