    And also the fact that the game was terrible!
    Surely Metroid Prime 2, Pikmin 2 & many others were better than that. PoP2 was all the bad elements of PoP1.

    I feel compelled to point out the lack of A Team and Transformers references, since we’re entrenched in eighties nostalgia at the moment :D

    Oh yeah, forgot about the A-Team and Transformers. Also Jason and the Wheeled Warriors.

    Was McGuyver eighties or early ninties, or both?
