Just because the Cold War has ended doesn’t mean we still can’t defend U.S. interests through the barrel of a gun! Well, we can in spirit, anyway. Absolute Entertainment’s first-person action title for the Sega CD tires to continue the fight with some mission-based combat, but it falls short in some key areas.

And now for something we hope you’ll really like! Well, that’s probably the sentiment that Imagineering had in mind when it programmed this title. But despite a good effort to preserve the charm of the show, the video game version of moose and squirrel plays like something Mr. Peabody left on the living room carpet.
Interestingly enough, most tennis games on the Genesis are hit or miss. There’s a bunch from which to choose, and it can often be difficult to pick the best because each of them have their strengths and weaknesses. Amazing Tennis, courtesy of programming legend David Crane, suffers from this dilemma as well but still manages to deliver (hah!) a solid experience for fans.
No matter how old you get, you still have toys. back in 1992, someone thought it would a great idea to turn this love into a movie, and they even got Robin Williams to play the lead role. Of course, as with any big budget license, a video game was a must, so Absolute Entertainment produced one. The movie Toys was a box office flop, and the game? We can safely say that while it wasn’t worse than the film, it wasn’t really much better.
In 2006, Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors for Sega CD was finally leaked for public consumption. The much-hyped title only took eleven long years to arrive, having been shelved after publisher Absolute Entertainment went belly up. Despite never seeing a true retail release, it was completely finished (which is why we’re reviewing it) and so begs the question: is it any good? Well, there’s actually more to it than the (in)famous “Bus Ride” segment.
