    ^^ Genesis hardware alone could not have contained such goodness. The Sega CD version not only craps all over the cart release, but uses the features of the hardware and CD format to full effect. Its a stellar title on the Sega CD.

    Edit: Yes i don't think it used the mode 7 chip, but everything else was there.
    The intro was poor and not the best quality imo , bar the animation on Spiderman I don't think the graphics were that much improved and I think the more open world game map , took away from the game focus . I much rather the Cart version myself

    I'm pretty sure that the cutscene animations are using the Graphics CoProcessor, which has nothing to do with SNES' Mode 7. At least, it looks like something a good blitter could render at ~15-20 frames per second. I wish more Sega CD games did this rather than messing with live action FMV. It was too early for CGI FMV that everybody loved on the Playstations, so animation was the next best thing especially if it was real time or pre-rendered by the system.

    I absolutely prefer the Sega CD version of Spiderman over any other 16-bit Spiderman game. I loved the world map and freedom of selecting locations, and detective work. The Genesis game felt very incomplete to me. It's really too bad they didn't give Batman Returns' platforming levels the same treatment, and art style.

    I don't think so and it looked way behind Core 's effort with Chuck Rock 2

    I think that was the worst part of the game - it was sometimes very hard to know and work out where you had to go and do next , plus it meant a lot of levels that looked very much the same . I liked the MD version more and loved the little touches like the camera . Its a shame that SEGA never brought it Spider man the Arcade game to the Mega CD or Saturn

    How about Eternal Champions? The Genesis version was fun, but the Sega CD version was leaps and bounds ahead IMO.

    It would have been nice if the Ys Book I & II for Mega-CD rumor had become reality.

    While I always defend the Sega CD version as being the superior port among ALL console ports (better controls, sfx, music and more content), I recently realized that the Sega CD version seems to be the only one missing a little animation in the Tazamul Mines level (which IS present in the Genesis version), where some little rocks are dropping from the top portion of the screen to give you the sensation that the place is ruining itself and it's about to fall down anytime soon (there's also a proper sfx for such animation).
    It's a very minor detail which certainly doesn't change my opinion about the Sega CD version being the definitive one but, all in all, it's a down point. I think it may have something to do with the RAM limitations of the Sega CD since this game has a lot of animation going...
    I need to re-check very carefully all other levels to see if there's anything else missing in the Sega CD version.

    Is the Sega CD Version of The Adventures of Batman and Robin better than the genesis version?

    I still wonder why the driving scenes of Adventures of Batman & Robin weren't just added in between the levels of the Genesis game like they did with Batman Returns. I know the two games were by different developers, but really man talk about an awesome Sega CD game with the Genesis' fighting levels and the Sega CD's driving levels.
