I don't mind under water levels all that much. Even though lava levels aren't like under water levels, those tend to be the levels I die the most in.

I got a Dreamcast with Sonic Adventures and Sega GT as well as a PS1 with Xenogears, Gran Turismo 2, Resident Evil 3, and a couple of old basketball games. Also got a SNES with 10 games. Not a bad haul this year.
I've been playing Xenosaga and it feels like enemies can give you everything from slow to the common cold (it's a joke, I'm not that stupid). So whats the worst ailments that those pesky enemies can inflict? My least favorites are poison and zombie. Poison always seems to get me when I have no antidotes on hand. A quick game over and yell of frustration cements my hatred of the poison ailment. Now zombie seemed to kick me in the teeth all the time at the end of FFX. It was more of an annoyance than an issue though.
I think if you use a professional review and a user review together, than you can get a pretty good idea of how the game is. Even preofessional reviewers have bias and even if they don't admit it, that does play a part in their reviews. I write a lot of reviews (not on here) and most people that read them tell me I do a good job and give accurate scores. So the issue is finding good reviewers, those who put aside the hype and price of the game and tell it like it is. Unfortunatly there aren't many people out there who do that, or they suffer from fanboy syndrome.
