Star Wars

Star Wars

The Star Wars saga explodes onto the Game Gear! Combining platforming action with vehicle stages, the game offers a decent reproduction of the movie. It’s not a perfect game, but the good seems to outweigh the bad, making it a decent addition to any Game Gear owner’s library.

Electronic Arts’ FIFA Soccer series has long been a standard of excellence, but the Game Gear version kind of trips over the ball in some areas.

Mickey Mouse debuted on the Game Gear in spectacular fashion, as Sega’s Castle of Illusion gave the machine a stellar platformer at launch.

It’s one that’s worth checking out.

Still, it’s not a bad game and one worth checking out if you’re a fan of Master System imports.
