CommentsEdit

Road Rash II - 93%

A bit too similar to the original perhaps, but Road Rash II still delivers in the fun and excitement departments. The best Megadrive road racer!

Sonic 2 - 96% (Mega Drive)

Sonic has outdone himself. An absolute gem of a game which your Megadrive will be screaming out for.

Sonic 2 - 95% (Master System)

Sonic I is one of the best games on the Master System. Sonic II is even better. Don't miss it.

Home Alone - 43%

Those expecting fun and excitement will be disappointed. Home Alone is a dull and tedious game with little going for it.

Special Criminal Investigation - 26%

A dreadful game which lacks decent graphics, enjoyable gameplay and any kind of challenge whatsoever.

Bio Hazard Battle - 88%

Rock hard blasting action that's well worth buying.

Streets of Rage - 80%

A fun beat 'em up which can be a bit frustrating but which still fares favourably.

Super High Impact - 39%

A superbly presented American football game which is totally let down by its limited, dull and shallow action and non-existent gameplay.

Gods - 89%

A brilliant example of the arcade/adventure genre with loads of challenge - well worth purchasing.

James Bond 007: The Duel - 66%

An average game that should go down well with Bond fans. The rest of us will live without it.

Taz-Mania - 71%

Brilliant looking, highly playable and very enjoyable - but the ridiculous amount of lives and lack of enemies means the game can be beaten in hours.

Greylancer - 48%

Tries to "remix" a load of old ideas without much success. Thunderforce III or IV, Gynoug, Bio Hazard and Hellfire are all miles better.

Twinkle Tale - 88%

A tough and enjoyable game which, although it sounds a bit wet, is one of the best blasters we've played this year.
