Still looking for another golf title to try out? Tired of the PGA series and any of the multitude of golf games on the Genesis? Here’s one you probably haven’t tried. Be wary though. It hasn’t aged well visually, and the language barrier may push you away. Still, it’s interesting to find that there are still genres offering new experiences to Western Genesis players, even sports like golf.
The classic Berenstain Bears made two appearances in the “Sega Club” line of children’s games for the Genesis and Game Gear, and both titles are fun little romps, with the Game Gear version being the more engaging of the two. Simple to play but not as easy as one would expect from a children’s game, it’s well suited for Sega’s portable.
Go, go Sega Game Gear! The Power Rangers kick and chop their way onto Sega’s little portable in a game that’s actually pretty darn fun! It may not be the most complex title out there, but it’s entertaining, plays well, and looks and sounds great. The Rangers were pretty solid on Sega’s hardware, and this is definitely one worth checking out.
The Sega CD has a great selection of RPGs, but most were sadly left in Japan. Those willing to brave the language barrier should consider playing Shin Megami Tensei, an installment in the long-running and popular series that was never brought to the West. It’s a great upgrade over the Super Famicom version, and there are FAQs online to help with the plot!
Mickey is usually well-known for his quality outings on Sega Consoles. The Illusion games are a fan favorite, but the third installment on the Game Gear began to show the series’ age. Lackluster compared to previous titles, it fails to bring anything new to the formula, and the result is definitely a step down.
