What do you get when you take the latest multimedia technology and pair it with one of the best basketball players of all time? A complete trainwreck! When people usually think of Scotty Pippen, his rap talents aren’t the first thing to come to mind, and why anyone thought it would be a great idea to have him rap in an 32X FMV game is a puzzle best left to time…
The FMV deluge continues! The 32X version of Sega’s Fahrenheit came bundled with the regular Sega CD game. The difference? Better video quality! Unfortunately, it’s the same game otherwise. Take a deep breath and read our full review and remember, when your house is filled with FMV games, stop, drop, and roll!
The early ’90s saw a ton of full-motion video games, and the genre exploded for a few years, until people actually came to their senses and remembered that they actually like to play their video games. Leading the FMV charge was Digital Pictures, and the company managed to release a lot of its games on different consoles, including the 32X. The result was the same game… but with much cleaner video! Supreme Warrior, a kung-fu fighter, was one title to get the 32X face lift, and we have a roundhouse review for it ready to go. Just remember: never take your eyes off your opponent, even when you bow.
When Digital Pictures released Night Trap upon an unsuspecting populace back in 1993, it set off a firestorm of controversy that got as far as the U.S. Senate. A year later, a version came out for the Sega CD/32X combo, it barely caused a stir. That was probably because by then, the FMV fad had run its course. Even so, this improved edition boasts clearer video and a much cleaner interface. It’s still the same game though, and as with most FMV titles, you either love it or hate it. Read the full review and see if this one’s worth giving a play through.
Digital Pictures sure took advantage of the CD medium. Some of the games stink, there’s no denying that. Some are still fun, in a campy sort of way. Corpse Killer is one such title. Originally released as a Sega CD game, it was cleaned up and became one of the few 32X/CD games made available. It’s cornball humor at its very best, and after laughing at just how bad the acting is, you might actually find yourself enjoying this one. If that piques your interest, we have a full review on it, so read on and see if this one is worth giving a try.
