Koei’s long-running strategy series made a singular appearance on the 32X in Japan, and it was never released outside of that country. Currently it’s considered one of the rarest games in that library, but is it worth playing? Very much so, despite a daunting language barrier.
Primal Rage capitalized on the digitized, gory brawlers that were popular in the ’90s. It’s got a decent premise and lots of blood, and the gameplay appealed to a decent amount of fighting fans. That being said, was it really necessary to release a 32X version? Did the extra hardware make a difference?
Sandwiched between the 16-bit and true 32-bit versions, FIFA Soccer ’96 for the 32X is a middle child that actually deserves its neglect. It does nothing to stand out, and it offers little reason for a purchase over its siblings, outside of collecting. Still, it’s undoubtedly the best soccer game on the 32X.
One of the best Genesis baseball titles gets a 32X installment, and its a prime example of why the 32X died a quite death. Mediocre visuals, bland sound, and poor gameplay will send you running back to the 16-bit versions. This game is supposedly rare, but we’d wager that it’s even rarer to find someone actually willing to play it.

Take a deep breath and read our full review and remember, when your house is filled with FMV games, stop, drop, and roll!
