    Saturn

    I used to have the sequel to this, Rise 2: Resurrection on the Saturn! It wasn't much better...

    I never played the Genesis version, but I remember the PC CD-Rom version being heralded in previews and advertisements as "making full use of the CD medium" and bringing PC gaming to the next level, being a true gaming experience (contrary to simple "interactive movies") utilizing cutting-edge technology.

    What you got was a game that was incredibly slow, had horrible controls, sported an uninspiring soundtrack, and while it had great concept art, the graphics weren't too impressive and the lack of varied animations made the game just look lifeless (which is ironic given the fact that the protagonists were all robots - instead of adding to the atmosphere, it robbed the game of actual fun).

    As I said, I never got to play the Genesis incarnation, but from my experiences with other versions of this game I can understand while it is counted among the worst games ever (especially when considering the massive hype the PC version of this crap got).

    It's worse. At least War Gods was playable to some extent and had a bit of variety. RotR has neither.
