Mortal Kombat (Game Gear)

Revolution X

They say music is the weapon, and if that’s true, then Revolution X is a nuclear bomb.

Regardless of arcade success, the formula didn’t translate well at all on the Genesis, and what we got was basically a shell of the coin-op. Even so, we’ve bravely set out onto the court for a hands-on, and we’ve come back with a full review, so read it before someone pulls our pants down!
