Poseidon Wars 3-D

Poseidon Wars 3-D

The Master System received what could be described as a reimagining or even a spiritual successor to Sega’s 1982 groundbreaking arcade hit Subroc 3D. Nowhere near as intense or impressive, it’s not a bad effort. It just seems awfully calm for a war game, and its 3D effect isn’t very impressive.

The high difficulty may chase away younger gamers, but there’s fun to be had here, particularly when played with other people.
