Sega CD Reviews

Marko CD

Let me see if I’ve got this right. Marko’s Magic Football was originally released in Europe on the Mega Drive, Mega CD, and Game Gear, and all made it across the pond to the U.S. except for the CD port. Eventually, the Sega CD version finally saw distribution in 2003 by Good Deal Games, which undoubtedly made all those who bought the incredibly expensive European original very unhappy. During the conversion process, the name was chopped off, no doubt due to America’s insistence in calling the sport “soccer,” but regardless of what it’s called, Marko is still a solid platformer that’s worth checking out.
