The original Blaster Master was something of a NES favorite, and Genesis fans were understandably jubilant when the sequel was announced for their beloved console. Imagining Jason roaming with SOPHIA through beautiful 16-bit backdrops and fighting majestic bosses seemed like a dream come true. Much to everyone’s dismay, the game failed to live up to its predecessor, and while not a bad game per se, it’s definitely lacking. We’ve put Blaster Master 2 through its paces to see just how it stands next to Sunsoft’s classic, so read our full review to see if it’s worth your time.
A lot has been done to ol’ Spidey these last few years. He’s been cloned, had two hit movies, and had a great run on recent consoles.

During the height of his popularity, the Tick even had his own game, which seemed to signal the start of the character’s fall.
