Basketball Nightmare

Basketball Nightmare is a great example of a good idea with poor execution. It’s not a bad game, but it wastes so much potential that you’re left wanting more. The result is a mediocre basketball game that wears out its welcome pretty quickly.

Vigilante

Vigilante

Irem’s brawling hit came home to the Master System without much of a downgrade, and it even supported the console’s neat FM sound feature. An addition well worth tracking down and adding to any library, Vigilante remains a great example of how Sega’s 8-bit machine could deliver arcade hits.
