Rolling Thunder 2 takes just about everything the original did well and does it better. Sharper and more detailed graphics, a greater variety of weapons, smarter and more plentiful enemies; all make for a great sequel. Namco adopted an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality here, leaving the game play intact.
Of all the characters in Disney’s stable, only Mickey Mouse is more famous than Donald Duck. Movies and cartoons galore have made the rodent’s pal one of the most recognizable figures ever created. I’ve always liked him, probably because he’s the only Disney character who really lets go when he’s pissed. Never one to be taken advantage of, Donald gets what he wants, no matter how much trouble it gets him into.
Everybody likes OutRun. The Ferrari, the music, the multiple paths; it’s all good. As one of the seminal racing games ever made, it has achieved almost legendary status. Originally released on the Sega Master System, it was brought to the Genesis in 1990 and was considered the best version until Sega brought it back on the Saturn for the Sega Ages Series.
Yep, lame enemies, horribly animated bosses, lots of gray looking objects and …that’s about it. Not much else if offered this time around as, obviously, there wasn’t a lot of thought put into Sol-Feace.
ToeJam & Earl is one of the best games on Genesis, hands down. It’s fast and quirky fun and many people consider it one of the best and most addictive games to be released in the magical Genesis year of 1991. It’s the type of game that never seems to get tiresome.
