Despite its maligned reputation, the 32X has a suprisingly decent sports library. World Series Baseball, FIFA Soccer ’96, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, and an adequate version of Quarterback Club cover most of the bases, and the group is rounded out by a solid golf title. Bearing perhaps the longest name in all of Sega gaming, Golf Magazine: 36 Great Holes of Golf Starring Fred Couples is a great way for the golf novice to jump into the sport. It’s also another fun game for your neglected mushroom! Read our full review for more information.
Virtua Fighter remains a three dimensional fighter, and therein lies one of its greatest strengths. It revolutionized the fighting game scene when it hit the arcades, and all those great features are present in the 32X version.
One of the few fighters created just for the 32X was an obscure game called Cosmic Carnage. It was released only on the 32X, so it is virtually unknown due to that add-on’s failure (it wasn’t the only game to suffer such a fate). A beat-em-up with little innovation or any special qualities to make it stand out in the crowd Cosmic Carnage wasn’t anything special and if you haven’t played it, then don’t worry because you haven’t really missed out on anything.
Blackthorne is definitely in the top few 32X games and is just as good as all of the other versions. Despite few flaws and minor problems, this game turns out to be very decent.
Hey look! It’s another version of Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. I guess the 32X version was collecting dust in some ancient 16-bit temple somewhere, but we finally tracked it down for a review. If you’re really a nit-picker and need to know the differences between all three versions, now’s your chance! Read the full review and hope we don’t find a Master System version with Power Base Converter for a review!
