The NBA Live series is one of the most treasured sports franchise on the Genesis. The 1997 installment doesn’t make any huge leaps in gameplay or presentation, but it still offers a solidly entertaining way to shoot some 16-bit hoops.
Taz-Mania (Game Gear)
Taz-Mania on the Genesis was a great game with incredible visuals and solid gameplay. Sadly, the Game Gear version bears little resemblance in quality, and sluggish gameplay ruins what could have been a great port. Fans of the character should stick to the Genesis games instead and avoid this one unless they absolutely need to play every Taz game there is.
Developed in tandem with the movie, the Game Gear Surf Ninjas game is recognized for being the first tie-in release completed before its license. That’s about all it has going for it though, as stiff and repetitive gameplay and bland design bring it down almost the level of the movie.

Those two famous fart-knockers are on the Game Gear! At the height of their popularity, Beavis & Butthead were everywhere, including ever game console out there. Did they score with their Game Gear outing, or is it just more TP for your bunghole? Well, you’ll have to check out our full review to find out!
