Sierra came up with an offbeat take on basketball that unfortunately doesn’t execute as well as it should. An interesting concept that stands out among other Sega CD titles, Bouncers unfortunately falls flat due to uninspired gameplay and an overall lack of depth. It might still be worth looking into for the novelty factor but not much beyond that.
Sega CD Reviews
Just because the Cold War has ended doesn’t mean we still can’t defend U.S. interests through the barrel of a gun! Well, we can in spirit, anyway. Absolute Entertainment’s first-person action title for the Sega CD tires to continue the fight with some mission-based combat, but it falls short in some key areas. Still, it might be worth checking out for those looking for a new disc to spin in their machines.
A PC classic comes to the Sega CD in great form! Despite some control adjustments and a large memory footprint, Dungeon Master 2 maintains everything that made it so popular on computers, and it gives Sega CD gamers a chance to dive into perhaps the largest RPGs ever released on the machine. A word to the wise though: bring a Mega Mouse or a six-button controller.
Game Arts crafted a graphic adventure that is sure to please fans of the classic cartoon on which it’s based thanks to some great comedy and some of the best animation on the Sega CD. Anime and manga fans will enjoy seeing Lum and friends come to the Mega CD in smart and quirky adventure. Don’t let the language barrier keep you away from what is one of the best games of its type.
Action titles based on anime are quite common, and for the most part they’re nothing special. Cyborg 009 falls squarely in the middle of the road due to uninspired gameplay and an overall lack of a creative spark. So much could have been done to bring Shotaro Ishinomori’s classic manga to life, but Riot squandered the chance.
