Sega CD Reviews

Shin Megami Tensei

The Sega CD has a great selection of RPGs, but most were sadly left in Japan. Those willing to brave the language barrier should consider playing Shin Megami Tensei, an installment in the long-running and popular series that was never brought to the West. It’s a great upgrade over the Super Famicom version, and there are FAQs online to help with the plot!

Game Gear Reviews

Defenders of Oasis

RPG fans looking for some adventure on their Game Gear should give Defenders of Oasis a try. Despite some basic design flaws, it has an interesting quest and a stellar presentation that are worth sinking some hours into. It’s not Phantasy Star, but it has its own charm, and there’s enough here to keep you coming back.

Master System Reviews

Phantasy Star

What can really be said? This is the one that started it all! Phantasy Star kicked off an epic franchise and pushed the limits of what an 8-bit console RPG could do. It was a sight to behold when it debuted in 1987 and has aged very well. Anyone who has yet to join Alis, Odin, Myau, and Noah on their journey to defeat Dark Force needs to clear their calendar in a hurry.

Genesis Reviews

Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday

Legendary sci-fi hero Buck Rogers found his way onto the Genesis in 1991 thanks to an Electronic Arts port of the classic Gold Box game, Countdown to Doomsday. A few things were lost in translation, but the game made it over in great form overall. If you’re looking for some old school PC RPG action, then this is one game you’ll definitely want to check out.
