Master System Reviews

Sagaia (Master System)

Taito brought its Darius goodness to both the Genesis and the Master System (outside the U.S.), and the latter turned out to be a very good version. It’s lacking in some areas, but the overall essence of the game still shines through. Fans will want to try and catch this fish and give it a play.

Game Gear Reviews

Marble Madness (Game Gear)

Atari’s Marble Madness is an arcade classic that’s been ported to many different systems with varying degrees of success. The lack of the coin-op’s unique trackball controller made many of these versions inferior, but thankfully the Game Gear version is highly playable. It also looks great, making this one of the better versions out there.

Streets of Rage (Game Gear)

Streets of Rage on the Genesis is considered a classic. Unfortunately, It’s portable cousin wasn’t able to convey the rage quite as well, and it comes off more as “Alley of the Mildly Annoyed.” While it’s not a terrible game, it lacks the polish of the 16-bit original, and the experience suffers overall. Still, it’s worth playing for the Yuzo Koshiro music alone!

Paperboy 2 (Game Gear)

Paperboy is an arcade classic that has been on just about every console imaginable. The sequel allowed players to play as a girl and featured stages that moved in different directions. Unfortunately, it lost a lot of its charm on the way to the Game Gear, and you’re probably better off with a digital subscription than waiting on this paperboy.
