    Master System Poseidon Wars 3-D

    The Master System received what could be described as a reimagining or even a spiritual successor to Sega's 1982 groundbreaking arcade hit Subroc 3D. Nowhere near as intense or impressive, it's not a bad effort. It just seems awfully calm for a war game, and its 3D effect isn't very impressive. Read our full review for more details.

    I can relate to this review. I got to play Subroc 3D in the arcades a few years earlier, too. I agree that Poseiden Wars was not one of the top Segascope games. The gameplay's pretty standard stuff. The best part is that is had trademark Sega atmosphere of the day with the colour and the Uwabo soundtrack. I never knew about the second controller trick (unless my memory's failing). I will give that a try.

    Interesting review. Perhaps they should have included a port of the original Subroc as an arcade mode. Perhaps would have helped sales as well.

    I find the 3D effect in this one quite mesmerizing, working in junction with the already very pretty parallax motion waves. It's subtle, but if you keep the glasses for two or three stages, it becomes quite an immersive experience.

    The music is awesome, great that they included a sound test option.
