Robocop 3

Robocop is widely considered by many to be a classic of modern science fiction cinema. Its sequels… not so much. The difference between the original and later installments is night and day, and this contrast also applies to the various video game adaptations released over the years. Everyone loves Data East’s Robocop arcade game, but the sequels are widely reviled, no matter the platform they’re on. One need look little further than Flying Edge’s port of Robocop 3 to see just how bad movie games can be. But hey, at least it’s faithful to its source material!

Robocop vs. the Terminator

Crossovers can be hit or miss. Few of them are great, and even fewer are successful enough to warrant merchandizing. Dark Horse’s Robocop vs. Terminator comic was one that not only brought together two of Hollywood’s most beloved action franchises, but it did it so well that it became an instant classic. Video games were commissioned, and the Genesis got a version that’s as long as it is brutally hard. This one’s not for the squeamish or the easily frustrated, so which one are you?
