Second time for a second tie

Between Melbourne House's Way of the Exploding Fist and Ocean's Where Time Stool Still.

You know the drill!

These are the two games I struggled to choose between first time round. Again I've gone for WotEF, because it just edges out on longevity.

WOTEF for me. Played it loads 'back in the day', but, I've never even touched WTSS.

What if there's a Tie-Break with the Tie-Break?!?!?! Suppose we could base it on the games average Crash/YS/SU Scores?

Gone with WOTEF again and, surprise, we're now at 8 each!

As for magazine Overall scores that are in ZXSR:

WTSS
Crash: 94%
Your Sinclair: 9/10
ACE: 719/1000
Sinclair User: 96%
C&VG: 8/10
The Games Machine: 95%

WOTEF
Crash: 92%
Crash (re-review): 72%
Your Spectrum: Not Rated
Your Sinclair: 83%
Sinclair User: 5/5
Sinclair User: 9/10
ACE: Not Rated

Ignoring the Not Rated scores and converting to decimalised values out of 10 we get:

WTSS: (9.4 + 9 + 7.2 + 9.6 + 8 + 9.5) / 6 = 8.8
WOTEF: (9.2 + 7.2 + 8.3 + 10 + 9) / 5 = 8.7

So WTSS just shades it in that regard.

However, disregarding re-reviews of WOTEF (which I think would be unfair as WTSS never had any that I'm aware of):

WOTEF: (9.2 + 10) / 2 = 9.6

Still not a fair comparison IMO.

Including re-reviews seems harsh.

WOTEF gets 9.1 otherwise.

Sorry, I think you edited your post while I was writing mine. Still, I get 9.1, not 9.6 (just stripping out the 72%).

Heads or tails... but I'm afraid the coin will fall sideways this time! :lol:
