The first game features solid gameplay and great presentation, and it captures the essence of what makes the series so popular with fans. This is definitely one to have in your Game Gear library.

Genesis Reviews

Rugby World Cup ’95

Rugby World Cup ’95

Are you a fan of rugby? If so, you might want to check out EA’s Rugby World Cup ’95 on the Genesis. It’s not spectacular, but it does a reasonable job of emulating the sport on the 16-bit hardware. There aren’t a lot of these games on the console, and this one is far from the best. Still, it’s worth spending some time with if you find it at a decent price.

Sega CD Reviews

Demolition Man CD

Demolition Man CD

Break out the Taco Bell! Stallone and Snipes are on your Sega CD, and they’ve got lots of action and shooting to keep you busy. That is, unless you’ve already played the Genesis version. In that case, they’ve got the same game but with some grainy FMV scenes! Still, it’s worth adding to your library, since it’s a very solid action title.

Preview: Paprium

Preview: Paprium

You’ve waited four long years, but WaterMelon’s next game is finally coming! Paprium could well be the best side-scrolling beat-’em-up ever made, and it’s set to take the Genesis to places no one thought it could go. WaterMelon has a pretty good track record for quality, and there’s no reason to doubt that it won’t deliver with this monster brawler.

Columns (Game Gear)

Columns (Game Gear)

If you’ve only played the Genesis version of Columns, then you need to track down a Game Gear and play the portable edition. It offers different options and a whole other feel to the gameplay that makes it more than just a watered-down port of its 16-bit sibling. It’s one of the best puzzle games on the Game Gear and arguably the best version of Columns overall.

Tecmo Super NBA Basketball

Looking for a Genesis basketball game that’s a bit different from NBA Live? Perhaps Tecmo Super NBA Basketball is one to consider. While not perfect, it offers a decent alternative to EA’s game, with real teams and players and enough simulation options to keep you playing the entire season.
