Konami’s Lethal Enforcers is a fan favorite, and one of the best reasons to own a light gun. The Genesis version retains most of the charm that made the arcade original so much fun, despite suffering the downgrade that usually happens during the porting process. It’s just as tough as the coin-op too, but thankfully no quarters are needed to play. Read our full review for all the details and ask yourself, do you feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

In this age of high definition, light gun games are increasingly rare (unless you count the Wii and its pointer controls). The Genesis may not have had a ton of them back in the day, but it did have some fun ones. A particularly successful light gun game was Konami’s Lethal Enforcers 2: Gunfighters. It’s limited due to the compromises made during the conversion to the home market, but it’s still a blast (ha!) to play. And it’s another reason to use your Justifier!
Junction is a game few people remember and even fewer actually played. Part of Micronet’s line up for the Genesis, it was a neat little puzzler that had players guiding a marble around a tiled stage. The complete lack of marketing – save for a print ad you can view in our scan archive – caused the game to die a quick retail death. It’s a good thing then, that we’re here to remind you of why you need to give this one a try!
Whenever you talk soccer games on the Genesis, Electronic Arts’ FIFA series is always mentioned. Some consider it to be the best representative of the genre on the console, but there are many dissenting opinions, and fans often point to Konami’s stellar International Superstar Soccer Deluxe as a contender. Does it live up to the hype? Why not read our full review and see for yourself?
Everyone likes Tiny Toons. The fact that it’s still appearing on consoles a decade after the series first aired is testament to its staying power. At the height of its popularity, there were games for all the major consoles of the era, and the Genesis received both a standard platformer (quite good in its own right) and a wacky take on the sports genre called ACME All-Stars. In the latter, players took control of their favorite toons and played such games as basketball, soccer, and bowling. It’s actually a lot more fun than it sounds.
