Kenseiden

Kenseiden

The Master System saw its fair share of sword-slinging action, and one game that many have overlooked is Kenseiden. Though not perfect (and quite challenging), the game is worth spending some time with. Great visuals and a variety of levels are sometimes overshadowed by the stiff gameplay, but there’s fun to be had.

Virtual Hydlide

Virtual Hydlide

The U.S. Saturn suffered early on due to a lack of RPGs, and one of the first released was Virtual Hydlide.

The result was an adventure better left to rot in a dungeon.

THQ’s SeaQuest game tried to capture all the action of the show, and despite some neat visuals and deep gameplay, it kind of sailed under the radar (much like the show itself). The game is not bad at all, and those looking for a new action/strategy game to play might want to find a copy.

Most gamers think of the Genesis or SNES versions when talking about Disney’s Aladdin. There was also a Master System release that actually followed the movie’s plot more closely than its 16-bit siblings. It was a fun game that was a bit too easy but played and looked great. Fans should consider a return to Agrabah for one more romp with Prince Ali.

Evander Holyfield’s “Real Deal” Boxing (Game Gear)

Evander Holyfield’s “Real Deal” Boxing on the Genesis was a fun title that advanced the genre on that console. Unfortunately, its Game Gear cousin ignores that progress and represents a significant step back. Messy presentation and dull gameplay put this one down for the count. Look elsewhere for your portable boxing fix.
