    Megadrive Aah! Harimanada

    Sega-16 would like to wish all its readers a happy new year, and we hope that 2007 will be bigger and more prosperous than ever for everyone. We all know that New Years Day kicks ass (except for the hangovers), and nothing says "ass kicking" like sumo wrestling. Wait...Did I just say sumo wrestling? On the Genesis? You better believe it! Check out our full review of the Mega Drive exclusive Aah! Harimanada and see what you've been missing.

    cool review, I enjoy seeing games I've never heard of before. Very interesting indeed. A shame the game apparently is very little fun though haha.

    I remember downloading this game as a ROM and was pretty taken aback by it. Some of the sumo grapples appear more like softcore gay sex scenes, although that could just be me. The gameplay was suitably shocking too. 2 is a deserved rating.

    The graphics look so dark.

    That's the light being sucked out of your soul as you watch the game in motion.

    I bought this game at the local game store (cart only) for like $8.

    It's not very fun.

    No, you´re not! I really like it too! The graphics are pretty cool with their comic-look, and it´s quite fun to play.
    Better than WWF Super Wrestlemania as far as wrestling goes, and I even enjoyed it much more than the hyped Eternal Champions. I would definately buy it if I see one cheap.

    I just noticed that this there is a broken link between the article and this thread. Maybe an administrator could fix this?

    In any case, I have owned this game for quite some time but I have not been able to find information regarding how to execute the special moves in the game. After much frustration, I find myself screaming Aah! Harimanada! even though I have no clue how to properly play the game!

    I suspect that there is a deeper game than what appears on the surface. It is graphically pleasing to the eye and I think the game instills a level of excitement to a sport that is largely foreign to a westerners like myself. there was a time in the mid 90s when I thought the sport of sumo wrestling may be common place in North America. Unfortunately it never caught on. Since the sport is not very popular here, this could lend credence as to why information about this game is non-existent.

    If someone happens to see this comment and owns the game, could you provide some information regarding the controls? It would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Seeing this title on my ROMset always made me think that it was the Japanese version of "Aah! Real Monsters!".

    Just gave this one a try. It didn't seem that bad, honestly. A 5 at worst. I suspect it'd be a lot better if we knew how to pull more moves off, but just slapping a few opponents unconscious was fairly fun.
