Think you’ve finished all the RPGs on the Master System? We bet you haven’t played this one, especially if you’re in North America. As the only Ultima game to come to Sega’s 8-bit wonder, Quest for the Avatar brought a entirely different take on the console RPG genre and offered a massive world with an intricate morality system. It’s definitely a must-play for RPG fans!continue reading
The Genesis has enjoyed quite a lively revival in the past decade, and new games are coming from all over the world. 1985 Alternativo’s port of Uwol: Quest for Money may not be the deepest game out there, but it’s a solid port and a worthy addition to anyone’s Genesis library.
Between the beach and all those other outdoor activities, time needs to be taken for what’s important: video games! The outdoors are nice and all, but who are we kidding? You know you want to crank up the AC and settle down with some SEGA goodness! Our staff and readers feel the same way! See what they’ve been playing for the past month.
The Caped Crusader has long suffered a mixed history when it comes to video games. Some are good, and some are bad. Some, like Batman Forever, are downright horrible. Probe and Acclaim managed to distinguish themselves by making a terrible game across multiple platforms, and the Game Gear version is part of that unfortunate line.
The Genesis isn’t wanting for golf games, and there are enough around for the average fan to find one that suits a personal preference. U.S. Gold’s World Class Leaderboard Golf is a decent entry into the genre, but it lacks the presentation that could have put it in the upper tier of console golf games. Still if you’re a fan, it’s worth some playtime.
Sonic The Hedgehog’s first adventure on the Master System was quite different than the on the Genesis. Developed by Yuzo Koshiro’s studio Ancient (and featuring some great music), it’s an excellent rendition that doesn’t try to be more than its hardware will allow, and it’s pretty much a new game. If you’ve already played Sonic to death but still haven’t tried it on the Master System, you’re missing out.
