Like baseball? Enjoy watching robots fight? Then have we got a game for you! Super Baseball 2020 lets cyborgs and robots take America’s pastime to a whole new level. A brilliant port of the Neo Geo arcade classic, the Genesis version has all the sporty metal-mashing you could ever want. Play ball!
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.
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.
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. In truth, all it mostly adds is frustrating gameplay. There are much better tennis games on the Genesis than this series, so fans would be advised to politely decline Mr. Sampras’ invitation.
The Genesis has become a great platform for homebrew titles, and brand new games have already arrived from companies like Super Fighter Team and Watermelon. Another company, called 1985 Alternativo, continues its series of releases with a brand new puzzle game. While it may not be the next Tetris, SupraKillMinds is still a fun and engaging title worth checking out.
