What do you get when you take the latest multimedia technology and pair it with one of the best basketball players of all time? A complete trainwreck! When people usually think of Scotty Pippen, his rap talents aren’t the first thing to come to mind, and why anyone thought it would be a great idea to have him rap in an 32X FMV game is a puzzle best left to time…

Considered one of the most controversial games in history, Night Trap earned the wrath of the U.S. Senate and helped usher in the ratings system. All the notoriety aside though, is it actually a good game? Well… no. Awkward gameplay fails to mesh with grainy video, creating an experience that’s ultimately unsatisfying. The 32X version at least had cleaner video, but this release doesn’t even have that going for it.
The Sega CD will forever be remembered for having the largest library of FMV games around, and there are a ton of different opinions regarding the overall playability of the genre. Regardless of how you feel about them, one thing we can probably all agree on is that some FMV games should maybe never have been attempted at all due to the gameplay constraints they placed on the concept they were trying so hard to bring to life.
If ever there was fashion trend that was downright dumb, it was the one involving Kriss Kross putting their pants on the wrong way. Sadly, people were willing to let the duo “warm it up” long enough to join in on the craze, and Sega even went so far as to give them their own video game. Debuting under the Make My Video label alongside such gaming powerhouses such as Marky Mark, Kris Kross’ horrible fashion sense is forever preserved in grainy, low-color video.
Digital Pictures is a company that still creates controversy, long after it closed its doors. Those who defend it look to games that are both funny and engaging, and those who hate it simply pick up a copy of Power Factory Featuring C+C Music Factory. Usually, the argument ends there. However, Sega-16, in the interest of good journalism (or unflinching masochism), has put the game through its paces for a full review, in order to see if all the vitriol against it is justified. The result? There isn’t enough hate towards this game.
