->''"In ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', you must help special agent Solid Snake infiltrate an enemy outpost and disable a supercomputer. (There's a rumor that in the Japanese version of this game, you're actually trying to destroy a big robot. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Weird]].)"''

->''"If ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVi The False Prophet]]'' was pushing the capabilities of the SuperNintendo's antiquated processor and 128kb of memory, ''The Black Gate'' shoved them off a cliff...Limitations of the hardware forced the game to become much more linear with event flags, and many items are inexplicably moved to the dungeons. Most damningly, though, is the severe damage that Nintendo's censorship policies resulted in for the game's story and play. Monsters, for some unexplained reason, [[NoBodyLeftBehind explode in a ball of fire]] rather than leaving bodies behind; presumably suicide-bombers are somehow more family friendly. Rather than ritual murders, you investigate [[NeverSayDie kidnappings]]. Various words including most notably the word 'kill' are gone from the dialogue, as well as nearly everything that could be construed as an adult situation, resulting in a horribly [[{{Bowdlerization}} bowdlerized]] game which demands no thought or moral choice and becomes just another consequence-free, mindless hack-and-slasher of the sort that Richard Garriott has been specifically trying to move away from since ''[[VideoGame/UltimaIV Quest of the Avatar]]''. There's really no reason to play this game at all. Please don't. [[TheyJustDidntCare It doesn't even have SNES mouse support.]]"''

->''"I hear the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Nintendo]] version didn't have a countdown timer, and actually explained the plot a bit better, but like I said, I played the [[SegaGenesis Genesis]] version as a kid, so here I am!"''

->''"And now for the UsefulNotes/{{Amstrad|CPC}} version. What can I say? Words such as travesty leap to mind. Surely there's some mistake. This isn't the ''VideoGame/OutRun'' we know and love. This is something else, something indefinable, something which wants to make you scream and bang your head against the nearest solid object, something you will regret spending your money on."''
