    Default Super Hydlide

    The public outcry of support following our Dungeons & Dragons review was so big that we just had to review another obscure RPG. Well, actually there was no outcry, and we only have my penchant for playing games no one else does to blame. For that reason, we give you our review of Super Hydlide. Enjoy!

    Oh man. Super Hydlide is probably my absolute least favorite Genesis RPG. It has some good ideas in it, but they are tragically executed and the game just plays like crap.

    I violently disagree with this review.

    What exactly didn't you like? I thought it played well enough, especially once you got some decent equipment (like most RPGs). The hero could have moved a little faster though. He's too slow even with no armor, but I don't think it played that bad at all.

    Great box art. That's all I know about this game, other than Melf is the only person in the world who likes it.

    I got it for 99 pence. It was so bad that I took back to the store and got my money back.

    I just bought this game for 50 cents loose. This game is not as bad as I initially thought. I don't even like RPG's, but I found myself getting into this game more than I thought. I must just not like turn based RPG's like Final Fantasy or Phantasy Star. I think there is less interaction in turn based RPG's than there is in FMV games. The graphics in the game are bad for 1990 Genesis standards, but the gameplay is halfway decent. I might like Popful Mail, but not the Lunar games for the Sega CD as well. If you are looking for a bad Genesis game, you should try the likes of Awesome Possum, Batman Forever, Dark Castle, or Bubsy (The most uncool mascot in the history of gaming).

    You must have some sort of fetish for death animations. Bubsy's main mechanic is to lure the player into cheap deaths to show off the (admittedly cool) death animations.

    Everybody has their own opinions. I actually like FMV games. I am spending a lot of time right now on Double Switch. This game is insanity and I am on the rock hard act II. I might get the easier Night Trap and the library of 32X/CD games (Once I get that darn connector cable).

    I enjoyed Super Hydlide for what it was worth. I beat it. Certainly could have played a bit smoother, but that music... oh man did it sound good, especially for its time.

    I second that. The first game I really just went to the sound test screen(in a fairy temple) and play the tunes through the stereo. This game has great music. Other then that it only looks slightly better than an NES game.

    I know this is a fairly old review, but I just have to say, thanks for being so fair to the game. I think it gets a lot of undue flack, whether due to the steep learning curve, sub par graphics, or just for being part of a series where all the other entries flat out suck. But this review pretty much echoes my own experience at playing the game back over 20 years ago.

    And oh, that soundtrack. Makes up for the graphic deficiencies and then some, IMO. Not only is it good stuff, it sounds pretty unique.
