I love RCR! I don't however love Handheld games. The fun in RCR was playing with a friend and beating the crap out of the bad guys(or each other) with dragon feet, stone hands, or a trash can(WWE style). But it's good that this cult classic is getting some recognition. Maybe a sequel for the NextGen consoles in the future(although, nothing can match the simplistic yet addictive gameplay of classic NES games)?
