“For a puzzle video game that nearly completely relies on visual acuity, the visuals are lazy.”
– excerpt from the full review.
One of the very few NES video games of which I can accurately and honestly say that I would rather watch paint dry or grass grow. Seriously, at least watching grass grow sounds serene, peaceful, and contemplative. But Fisher-Price Perfect Fit, instead, is a putrid mess of no-fun anal excretion, a “game” that smells worse than your urine after eating a bunch of asparagus, and looks worse than one of those “weird part of YouTube” videos where people pop their giant zits.

I utilize many criteria in my review, but not a single one of them involves “Meant for children, thus should be given a more lenient critique.” If a game sucks, it sucks. If it is ugly, it is ugly. If it is not fun, it is not fun, and should not be given a high score. Period. 3) See my Mario Is Missing blog post.
