GA ReassessmentEdit

The GA for this article was back in 2007, since then, a lot of GA standards, as well as general standards for video game articles have changed, and this article currently fails many of those. Among the major concerns: there should be more of a development section (failing #3a of GAC), and some of the sources like GirlGamer are really not considered reliable nowadays (failing 2b). I don't think it can easily be fixed back into a GA at this type, and would recommending delisting. --Masem (t) 18:00, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Delist. I'd like to put the time in to improve it, but as it were, I have far too many projects on my plate. - Bryn (talk) (contributions) 18:05, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Delist. FWIW I don't think this is a million miles off (I'd say it's aged better than other articles, like Half-Life), but the issues mentioned above are not something I'd expect from a GA. JOEBRO64 19:39, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Delist per nom. Lots of the sources used are unreliable and not acceptable for a Good Article. Namcokid47 (talk) 22:55, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Let me see what I can do. I’m a bit busy right now, but I might be able to do some much needed cleanup tonight. I’m not promising anything, but the article doesn’t look “too” bad. Famous Hobo (talk) 02:33, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

@Masem: Okay so I did my best with the development section. Truth be told, there's not a lot of info out there about this game, so I wrote what I found. The use of unreliable sources in the reception section will probably require a rewrite, but for now that's not too big of a deal. BTW, do you happen to know anyone who has access to old Nintendo Power magazines? I'd ask the people on the Reference library, but the three users listed for Nintendo Power magazines have retired and are no longer active. Famous Hobo (talk) 06:35, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
{@Famous Hobo: i recommend changing it into "Development and release" to fill more information.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 14:40, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Okay, so about two months passed after this GAR was made, with three votes to delist and next to no activity on the article. Should we just close this discussion? Namcokid47 (Contribs) 19:59, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Delist This doesn't strike me as a "Good Article", just a stock standard video game article that is decently fleshed out.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 01:16, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
@Masem: Looks ready to be closed. AIRcorn (talk) 05:27, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
@Masem: This discussion has been open for six months, and there's been barely anything done to improve the page. I think we should close the discussion and delist the article. Namcokid47 (Contribs) 22:52, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
  • I have gone ahead and delisted this per above. --Masem (t) 19:21, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
