Tintin in Tibet

Tintin has been a classic comic hero for over a century, so it was only natural for him to get his own video game. It’s based on the 1960 book and features visuals were straight out of the comic. Lamentably, the gameplay and difficulty make this one adventure better left to the printed page.

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.

Saturn Reviews

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!

Sega CD Reviews

Syndicate (CD)

Bullfrog’s dystopian classic saw a European Mega CD release, but it didn’t do much more than the cartridge version. Some lengthened cut scenes and a new soundtrack might entice some, and it still plays as well as its Genesis sibling. It’s not a bad purchase if it can be had for a decent price.
