Are you a fan of rugby? If so, you might want to check out EA’s Rugby World Cup ’95 on the Genesis. It’s not spectacular, but it does a reasonable job of emulating the sport on the 16-bit hardware. There aren’t a lot of these games on the console, and this one is far from the best. Still, it’s worth spending some time with if you find it at a decent price.

Looking for a Genesis basketball game that’s a bit different from NBA Live? Perhaps Tecmo Super NBA Basketball is one to consider. While not perfect, it offers a decent alternative to EA’s game, with real teams and players and enough simulation options to keep you playing the entire season.
Sega gave EA Sports a run for its money with a line of quality titles that covered all types of sports. One of its strongest series during the 16-bit era was NBA Action. Real teams and players and solid gameplay made up for the weak graphics, and the game is worth playing for fans of B-ball action, particularly the multi-player mode.
The classic game of chess comes to the Genesis, and it has never been better. It’s ironic that an unofficial release, available as a download for flash carts or as a reproduction cart, is perhaps the best version of the game on the console. No gimmicks, no licenses – just classic chess simulation for the serious enthusiast. If you’re a chess fan, you’ll want to play this one.
Super Fighter Team’s first puzzler on the Genesis may not have the single-player legs that other classics like Columns and Mean Bean Machine do, but it’s still a enjoyable game to play, especially with a friend. Short but engaging, it’s a decent addition to your Genesis library if you’re looking for some simple fun.
