Vectorman was a classic then, and it's a classic now.
TECHNICAL MUMBO JUMBO POINTS!
+8: Looks great even now
+15: Pushed the Genesis to it's limit.
-1: Rare graphic glitches, but that is expected.
GRAPHICS POINTS OVERALL: 10/10 (O_O what to do with those 12 extra points...): There is little to say here. Vectorman, in its time, looked like a flippin god, using every atom of space in the Genesis, while still keeping glitches to a minimal. Even today, it is extremely cool looking because of its unique visual style. That is very rare.
SOUND FX POINTS!
+1 Sounds retro in a cool way
+3 Sounds are crisp and clear, and they always stay totally intact
-1 Some sounds play in every stage.
-2 Alot of the sounds will get on your nerves...
SOUND POINTS OVERALL: 1/5: The sounds are retro, and they never clip out, but they are really ANNOYING!! Plus, I don't like listening to things over and over again...
+4 Alot of different tracks
+2 The tracks are all loud enough to be heard
-2 Music has worn out over the years.
MUSIC POINTS OVERALL: 4/5: The music is also top-notch in this game. It is very disco-y, you can ACTUALLY HEAR IT, and it won't distract you from all that shooting.
TECHNO MUMBO JUMBO OVERALL: 15/20: Not a great sound score, but the graphics more than make up for it. If you are looking for a great visual expierience, look no further.
+15 Controls are very easy to learn
+10 Aiming is a sinch, but you won't master it in seconds.
-5: The controls (turning) are slightly off when you are in a vehicle.
CONTROL OVERALL: 20/20: This game is increadably tight in control. Although the vehicles are a bit hard to get used to, within 30 seconds of controling them, you should be able to control without a hitch.
+4: Stages have many hidden areas.
+5: There is a great amount of weapons you can use
+2: You can occasionally side-track from the normal game.
-1: It's still an SSS, just a bit deep for one.
OVERALL DEPTH POINTS: 10/10: This game has a suprising amount of depth hidden in this game, and while most of it can be ignored, it wouldn't be advisable, unless you don't like large stages :(
+13 large amount of room to explore
+5 bosses are fun
+10 Alot of good weapons to try out.
-3 balance is a bit off
-2 still an SSS
OVERALL FUN POINTS: 23/30: Vectorman is a very fun game, although its difficulty sometimes goes steep on you, and it is still an SSS, no matter what it does.
OVERALL GAMEPLAY POINTS: 53/60: The game will rarely frustrate you: That is the only naunce in the otherwise excellent gameplay.
OTHER BS POINTS!
+3 large areas with tons of hidden goodies :D
+2 Hidden mini-games in certain areas.
+1 There are codes >.>
SECRETS OVERALL RATING: 6/5: There are codes, mini-games, and hiddin areas! YAYZ!
+5 Turning into vehicles and weapons is kinda new
-3 all of the novelty wore off.
INNOVATION POINTS OVERALL: 2/5: nothing new -_-
+5 Vectorman roxors.
Score for game: 98/100
