    Heh, atleast someone liked it

    My brother bought when it first came out and I played the hell out of it for a week straight 'til I couldn't take it anymore. I found the game shallow and soulless, personally.

    Anyway, my friend picked up Dahna last year on a chance and both of us were pleasantly surprised. Strange that we miss this one back in the day. Sure, it's not the greatest and maybe even a bit dated for even '91, but it has that old school feel and is pretty cool overall. It reminds me of a mixture of a few classic games.

    Greendog and X-Men are the only Genesis games to have the 'honor' of finding their way into my trash under five minutes after getting booted up the first time. No, I'm not kidding.

    X-Men, eh? Y'know, I just never got that game either. I've tried to be impressed with it, but it just feels sloppy to play. I think the only real reason I want to finish it is just to see the infamous 'reset' screen.

    Maybe one day I'll play X-Men and just 'get it'. But until then, there are plenty of better action platformers out there to pop into my Megadrive.

    Infamous? Maybe I'll have to go dumpster diving and find that cart again... X-Men 2 wasn't that great, either, but it wasn't so flagrantly horrific.

    man x men 2 was horrific it looked great at first stage and aslo sounded decent but the further you played the scarier it became,the music hurts my ears,nes sounds awesome compared to this and the graphics also where on par with ness really colour lacking and uninspring,this game meets its ugly brother called wolverine adementia wreckage.

    2007, its NOW $60 and I find the game "OKAY", not the worst I played, but really doesn't deserve a 4, a 6 or 7 at best.

    I actually kind of like this game as well. I haven't played it much but it seemed to be right up my alley, just kind of difficult.

    This is a fine game, the score of 4/10 is too low!

    Oh come on, Kollision, Galg kicks this all over the yard, even as a platformer.

    @ Melf = Spot on review. Score's too high, but since everything's covered in the review that becomes nonessential. One of the first games I tried through emulation, thinking "Sweet, now I can play all these imports.....Oh no..."

    Nice little hidden gem. From what I've played it'd deserve a 6/10 (or 3/5).
    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    Or 1.5/2.5.



    I played this today and it was quite brutal. The lifebar is much too small at the beginning and the pacing of enemies is overwhelming. For example, the first horseback stage begins with one enemy from behind and one from ahead of you - at the same time. It's more proper to begin with one of them, then the other and then maybe both at the same time. Also, the jumping is so stiff and hard to control.

    To give the game some credit, I think they have done a fine job in creating an epic atmosphere. The music fits the mood, there is a story told both in animated cutscenes in the levels and in stills between them. Also, sound effects such as the horse gallop add a lot to the atmosphere.

    Though I haven't played the entire game yet, I agree with the review there is some potential in this title. A few extra days spent on the level design and controls could have made this a true gem.

    I'm surprised Dahna is so poorly received. I bought it around 1997, enjoyed it then and still think it's a solid action platformer.

    Personally, after having translated it, I thought it was a 5/10, maaaaybe 6/10 game, so I guess the review isn't that far off from my opinion. Nothing particularly memorable about it perhaps, but it was alright while it lasted, and felt pretty average in all categories to me. Interestingly, it also has the distinction of being the absolute easiest project we did (took us only 3 days to get this one translated).
