Home Alone is a holiday classic, and the licensed Sega games are of surprising quality. The Game Gear port of the Genesis version is underrated, as it does a great job of maintaining the 16-bit version’s gameplay and charm. It’s one most people have likely missed.

Kevin’s back for another round against the Wet Bandits! Unfortunately, it’s the player who ends up all wet with this game. Unlike the first Home Alone, which was engaging and fun, the sequel is just a poor-playing exercise in frustration. Maybe next time they should just leave Kevin home for good.
Despite the licensing curse that plagues most movie games, Home Alone wasn’t all that bad. With well-designed levels and solid gameplay, it manages to stay true to its source material while offering something original. This is definitely one to check out, and many people may have ignored it due to the license.
