Saturn Bomberman

Hudson’s 32-bit Bomberman remains the defining entry in the franchise and perhaps the best multi-player game on the Saturn. It’s reason enough to own more than one multi-tap and as many controllers as you can find. If you’re looking for the ultimate Saturn party or tournament game, this is it.

Rambo: First Blood Part II

Rambo: First Blood Part II

Rambo II was the Master System’s first big-name, two-player run-‘n-gun, and it was a pretty fun romp while it lasted. Varied environments and lots of enemies helped make up for the game’s relatively slow pace, and the soundtrack is highly underrated. This is one gem that Master System owners should give a try.

Jim Power: The Lost Dimension

Jim Power: The Lost Dimension

Once slated for a Genesis release, Jim Power: The Lost Dimension was canceled and cast into limbo. It remained there for two decades, until Piko Interactive rescued it from oblivion. Was it worth the wait? Well, yes and no. Read our full review to find out more.

Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue

Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue

Buzz Lightyear certainly went “to infinity and beyond” on the Dreamcast. His 3D adventure was a surprisingly good licensed romp that shouldn’t be overlooked. There are expansive levels, great puzzles, and engaging boss battles in this excellent port that deserves a spot on your shelf.

Striker

Striker

Soccer fans who haven’t played Striker are missing out. It’s one of the better MD representations of the sport, but the fact that it only came out in Europe has probably kept many fans unaware of its existence. They should check it out, as its solid gameplay and great presentation are sure to thrill.

Xenocider

Xenocider

The first 3D shooter in almost two decades arrived on the Dreamcast in early 2021. Xenocider combined fast-paced action with presentation and gameplay one would expect from an official release back in 1999. It’s a great shooter romp that shows Sega’s last console isn’t done thinking.

Parodius

Parodius

Konami’s unique blend of shooter action and cutesy humor was a big hit in Japan and Europe and was collected into a great two-game set. Sadly, U.S. gamers never got a release. They missed a solid collection that looked as good as it played. But, that’s what importing is for!

Yogi Bear’s Cartoon Capers

Yogi Bear’s Cartoon Capers

Yogi may be smarter than the average bear, but his Mega Drive appearance was strictly average. The game lacks any major gameplay issues, but its cookie-cutter formula and boring gameplay does little to inspire. Players might find it more fun to look for picnic baskets in their local park than play through to the end.

Enemy Zero

Enemy Zero

Warp’s ambitious, sci-fi survival horror romp was unique on the Saturn but it was also not very exciting. Repetitive environments, vague objectives, and uninspired puzzles take away from the amazing ambiance. Still, you might want to check out Enemy Zero just to experience the tension and fear for yourself.
