Sega disappointed everyone by not releasing a true Sonic game for the Saturn, and what we got instead was Sonic 3D Blast, which was also ported to the Genesis. Well, now that we have two of them, why not see which one’s better? Check out our latest Side by Side and find out!
Rare’s Snake, Rattle ‘n’ Roll is widely considered to be a classic on the NES. A few years back, we reviewed the obscure Mega Drive version, but how about we take a closer look at the two? Well, staff writer Doug Jackson did just that, and his findings are now available in the latest installment of our Side by Side series.
When Sega released James “Buster” Douglas Knockout Boxing for the Genesis, the product’s shelf life had already been cut short. Shortly after the game hit shelves, Douglas lost the belt in his first title defense, and Sega was left with one big turkey of a license. To top it off, the game was little more than a remix of Taito’s Final Blow coin-op. Most people waiting for a real boxing title were left with a bad taste in their mouths, and by the time the game was ported to the Master System, people had moved on. What they didn’t realize is that the 8-bit version is totally different and bears more of a resemblance to Sega’s Rocky than it’s 16-bit sibling.
Kowabunga! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles have punched and kicked their way across more consoles than you can shake a bo staff at, and the Genesis was no exception. Sega’s 16-bit wonder received versions of two highly playable and controversial titles: Tournament Fighters and The Hyperstone Heist, and the latter has been compared to the SNES port of Turtles in Time since it made its debut in 1992. Staff writer Christian Matozzo has put the two through their paces for a full comparions, and he’s ready to share his findings in the latest installment of Side by Side.
