A PC classic comes to the Sega CD in great form! Despite some control adjustments and a large memory footprint, Dungeon Master 2 maintains everything that made it so popular on computers, and it gives Sega CD gamers a chance to dive into perhaps the largest RPGs ever released on the machine. A word to the wise though: bring a Mega Mouse or a six-button controller.

Game Arts crafted a graphic adventure that is sure to please fans of the classic cartoon on which it’s based thanks to some great comedy and some of the best animation on the Sega CD. Anime and manga fans will enjoy seeing Lum and friends come to the Mega CD in smart and quirky adventure. Don’t let the language barrier keep you away from what is one of the best games of its type.
Action titles based on anime are quite common, and for the most part they’re nothing special. Cyborg 009 falls squarely in the middle of the road due to uninspired gameplay and an overall lack of a creative spark. So much could have been done to bring Shotaro Ishinomori’s classic manga to life, but Riot squandered the chance.
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.
Wolf Team should be sued for false representation. Devastator may look like a great action title featuring a massive robot, but in reality it’s just a mediocre action title with repetitive gameplay. Aside from a few sparse effects, virtually all the power of the Sega CD goes to cut scenes and music , as the gameplay itself is nothing a cart couldn’t handle.
