Most people like Mickey Mouse. We’ve all grown up with him, seen his cartoons, played with the toys, gone to Disney World, etc. The little mouse seems to get the star treatment wherever he goes. Heck, he hasn’t even had to make a movie in years, given his popularity (although the Three Musketeers will change that). Sadly, Mickey hasn’t had as much success in the gaming industry as he’s had in cinema and television. From turds like Mickey Mousecapades and Fantasia, to snore fests like Disney’s Magical Mirror, he’s pretty much been hit-and-miss when it comes to games.
One of the rarest and most expensive games on the Genesis, this import-only release is worth even more if you can find a copy with the limited edition tea cup that was only available as a freebie from Sunsoft. Those without it must make do with a great little shooter that pushes the 16-bit hardware to its limits. Not a bad trade off, eh?
Whenever Genesis fans list the import games that should have come to the West, Monster World IV is always at the top. The final game in the Monster World series, it’s arguably the best and one of the most revered action/RPGs on the Genesis. Some way, some how, you MUST play this game if you’re a fan of games overall. It’s just that good.
The first sequel to the arcade and TurboGrafx-16 classic, Splatterhouse 2 offers more of the same gory fun but with better visuals and special effects. Fans of the first game should definitely give it a try, and there’s plenty of chills and monsters for action and horror fans alike.
