I do agree with this point (though I haven't really played Jim Power so I can't comment on that)... you can have all the technical tricks in the world but if the game plays like a brick who cares? Shadow Of The Beast and Elfmania are two particularly good examples of this (although Elfmania does use the full screen).
I've never paid much attention to all this stuff - yes, it can look and sound very impressive but if that's all I wanted I'd just watch demos all the time instead.
