Treasure’s four-player monster was an amazing experience and one of the best reason to own a multi-tap. Sadly, it was only released in Japan and Brazil, and it’s as expensive as it is fun to play. Check out the review and see why you need to pawn a kidney…now.
Sega released a technical marvel with the Saturn version of Virtua Fighter 2. Graphical compromises were made for it to happen, but the gameplay made the transition home intact. AM2 added a ton of great options as well, making this port a must-have for Saturn owners.
Sega took the best of its fighting game efforts and molded them into one of the best brawlers of the 32-bit era (or any, for that matter). A huge cast of characters from Fighting Vipers, Virtua Fighter, and even Virtua Cop come together to create one incredible battle experience. Have a Saturn? Then simply put, you need this game.
Companies like Takara brought many Neo Geo ports to the Genesis, including the King of the Monsters series. Though the sequel is better, the original offers some simple fun that’s still worthy of some play. Just be sure to play it first, as its limited monster selection and repetitive gameplay pales next to its successor.
On the Mega Drive, Sega began offering downloadable games via its MegaNet service. Robot Battler was among the titles released, but it offered little satisfaction compared to some of the other titles. Today, what novelty it has is gone, and the actual game is perhaps better left as a footnote in the company’s history.
