Reader Roundtable Vol. 107

The weather has turned much colder for many, and winter has finally made its presence known. So what better way to spend the time than with some great games? Whether you’re snowed in or just hanging out, there’s always time to pop in some Sega games and have fun!

R-Type

R-Type

Irem’s classic blasts its way onto the Master System! SEGA did an incredibly faithful job reprogramming this arcade hit, and it pushes the console to the limit (wait, I thought there weren’t any!). If you’re a fan of shooters or the R-Type series in general, then you need to grab this one!

Powermonger

Powermonger

Electronic Arts wasn’t shy about porting its popular computer titles to the Genesis, but some games are better left where they are, especially when they fail to capture excitement and gameplay of the original. Powermonger suffers this fate, as its slow and oh-so-steady gameplay is bogged down on console and hampered by inadequate control.

Sega CD Reviews

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.

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.
