Strider (Master System)

Strider (Master System)

So much was lost in the Master System port of Strider that fans of the game should avoid it entirely. Dull and sluggish gameplay combine with horrible presentation to create one of the worst arcade conversions on the console. Stick with the Genesis port if you want to beat the Master, but if you must go 8-bit, grab the excellent NES game instead.

Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa

Opa-Opa’s second adventure on the Master System may not be as classic as his first, but it’s still some quality shooter action. Great gameplay and solid design overcome some hardware shortcomings (particularly regarding sound) and make for an excellent addition to anyone’s Master System library.

E-SWAT (Master System)

Sega’s armored cops took arcades and the Genesis by storm, and they eventually set up a precinct on the Master System. Closer to the coin-op than the Genesis version, the 8-bit game provides a decent amount of gameplay with some decent presentation. It’s not as good as its siblings, but it makes for a decent addition to Master System libraries.

Real-time strategy buffs who aren’t afraid of a little Japanese will want to check out Dyna Brothers 2. Charming visuals, engaging gameplay, and dinosaurs make for a neat little game that will keep players occupied for hours. The language barrier is perhaps the only obstacle to an otherwise excellent title.
