Taz appeared on just about every Sega console during the early ’90s. Some were better than others, but the often-overlooked Master System version remains one deserving of some attention. It’s not the best of the brand, but what’s there is enough to keep you interested all the way through.

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.
Taz’s first Genesis adventure still meets mixed reactions wherever you go. Some people like it, and others hate it with a passion. Regardless of which is the majority, Sega obviously thought it sold well enough to give the sequel a green light. This time around, the famous Looney Toon found himself on Mars, and his adventure pitted him against an entire cast of famous Warner Bros. characters. Did it live up to its predecessor, and more importantly, should you track down a copy?
Back when I had just received a Sega Genesis for Christmas and still didn’t have any games other than the great Sonic The Hedgehog, I remember seeing a certain commercial of Taz-Mania countless times on TV. Its graphics were unbelievable, it looked a lot like a real cartoon, and I absolutely had to have it! I bought it the first chance I got with my own money.
