Despite its simple premise and short duration, Cannon Spike is a Dreamcast favorite. It combined frantic bullet action with large bosses to give players a quick burst of adrenaline. The high is a short one, but it’s definitely one worth pursuing, especially with a second player along.
Capcom’s survival horror legend tore its way onto the Saturn a year late but brought along some goodies to make up for its tardiness. The new Battle Mode and graphical touches enhanced an already solid game enough to warrant one more trip into the mansion.
Capcom’s massive exposure during the early late ’80s and ’90s is the result of the hard work by Capcom’s marketing division, which was run by Sr. Vice President Joe Morici. During his tenure, Street Fighter II exploded onto the scene, Strider took arcades by storm, and a certain blue robot made his debut.
Mickey Mouse and the Genesis have quite a storied history together. Beginning with the grandeur of Castle of Illusion and continuing on to the great World of Illusion and Mickey Mania, the famous mouse has made a home of the 16-bit wonder. Sure, there have been some hiccups along the way (read: Fantasia), but the majority of Mickey’s outings have been highly playable and fun. Capcom’s foray into the Disney rodent arena, The Great Circus Mystery Starring Mickey and Minnie not only has one long title, it’s also a great little two-player romp.
Super Street Fighter II saw a release on several consoles, and the Genesis verion ranks among the best. Packed with just about everything the arcade original had to offer, there are few fighting experiences better on the console, giving players a wonderful game to enjoy alone or with friends.
