The Ecco the Dolphin series is one that many people love and enjoy, given its intriguing gameplay and incredible atmosphere. The games showed their potential on the Sega CD, adding stunning soundtracks and video sequences. Tides of Time was a great example of the power of CD being used to make a great game even better.
The classic board game comes to Genesis. Take charge of your armies and march them across the globe on your quest for world domination. This version adds some unique gameplay elements that make it worth trying for fans of the series or board gamers looking for something new to try. Destroy your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women!
With all the different baseball games on the Genesis, it’s quite possible to skip over a few. For many players, Sports Talk Baseball or World Series Baseball are all that’s needed, but there are some good alternatives out there.

Namco’s early 16-bit efforts are a lot of fun, and Genesis owners everywhere should check them out. Among the batch is an underrated sports title that mixes American football with soccer (and a bit of wrestling). With its simple gameplay and frantic pace, fans of brutal sports games might want to give Powerball a spin.

As one would imagine, it was the same bad game embellished with a CD soundtrack, giving importers very little reason to trade up from their cartridge version. Heavy Nova is bad, no matter on what format it appears.
