Sega Stars: Joe Miller

In July of 2014, the SEGA community and video games in general lost one of their most innovative minds. Joe Miller’s passing marks the end of a brilliant career, but it also presents an opportunity to explore the rich legacy he leaves behind. His work at companies like Epyx, Atari, and SEGA altered gaming in many ways we still see and experience today.

Traysia

Traysia

Renovation provided a major software lift to the Genesis in its early years, releasing all sorts of titles and covering almost every genre imaginable. Among the RPGs in its line is Traysia, which never really seems to excel at anything. Sometimes fun, often dull, it never really seems to know what it wants to be.

Iron Helix

Iron Helix

Looking for a puzzle-solving, sci-fi thriller for your Sega CD? Iron Helix may be your game. Combining the interface of a graphic adventure with full-motion video cut scenes and puzzle elements, the game offers an experience uncommon on the platform. It may not be as deep as later titles, such as “D” and “Enemy Zero,” but it’s definitely worth playing.

Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition

Double Dribble on the NES is considered a classic by many, but somehow none of what made that version so special found its way into the Genesis sequel. Brain-dead team AI makes the single-player experience entirely avoidable, and while the eight-player mode may be fun for a while, it can’t save the overall package.

Sampras Tennis ’96

Sequels are expected to be better, but often they’re not. That’s the case with Sampras Tennis ’96, which offered little improvements over the original.

The British sport is played on almost every continent, so it shouldn’t be surprising that there is a Mega Drive version. It also shouldn’t be surprising that it wasn’t released in the U.S. Still, it’s an excellent rendition and a great chance for Genesis owners to learn about this unique and engaging game.
