They called Stadium a created level in their hands-on with Dukematch. It's not surprising.

Like I would expect, it sounds as if the guy never played the game before now. It also sounds as if he didn't go through the game all the way before reviewing it. Good to see that they gave it a decent review though.

Doesn't matter, to today's standards, they aren't good. It's his job, and as you can tell it didn't affect the overall score.

Didn't effect the score, but it's a silly thing to mention, much like rating visuals in a B&W movie lower than a modern "color" movie.

It's ok to be CLASSIC and original. Happens in music, movies and literature. Gamers are just whiney and expect pixel shaders in Donkey Kong now.

Billy Mitchell would throw a hissy fit if they put pixel shaders into Donkey Kong.
