Verdict
The Immortal Mega Drive 96 93 89 94 If you only buy one game this year, buy The Immortal. Give your Mega Drive a treat.
World Class Leaderboard Master System 83 87 83 82 When it comes to golf games, there is no worthy challenger.
Factory Panic Game Gear 82 91 81 85 One of the most addictive and original games to appear on the hand-held so far.
Xenon II: Megablast Master System 92 83 84 80 Despite its flaws, Xenon II is destined to become the most successful shoot 'em up on the MS.
Out Run Game Gear 84 78 75 69 The graphics are groovy, the sound thumping, but lack of variety means short-lived appeal.
The Flintstones Master System 89 40 75 61 Gorgeous graphics but stinted gameplay and limited longterm appeal for most.
Mike Ditka Power Football Mega Drive 83 82 78 80 If the gameplay were up to the presentation, this would be a Madden-beater.
Shadow of the Beast Master System 91 92 81 82 This is definitely a very impressive game for the MS, but the playability is still in doubt.
Jewel Master Mega Drive 89 92 88 87 A very challenging romp through your deepest fantasy nightmares.
Klax Mega Drive 87 85 92 84 If you thought puzzle games were dead, think again. Klax is back!
Vapor Trail Mega Drive 79 82 70 78 Adds nothing to the genre as a whole, but provides addictive challenge for one player.
El Viento Mega Drive 90 82 85 92 With super fast graphics and brutal gameplay, El Viento will take your breath away.
Shining in the Darkness Mega Drive 94 85 86 92 Shining is without doubt the best RPG to appear on the Mega Drive... so far.
Toejam and Earl Mega Drive 92 95 92 92 A most triumphant excursion of cerebral excellence. Dig?
Pac-Man Game Gear 75 70 80 83 Okay, so this ain't exactly new, but for pure nostalgia it wins hands down.
Galaxy Force II Mega Drive 82 70 32 36 If you're looking for action and intensity......look elsewhere.
Fantasy Zone Game Gear 71 75 58 79 The simple delights of the original version were okay in 1986, but we're in the Nineties now...
Rastan Saga Game Gear 88 90 85 81 It's heartening to see an old nut like Rastan Saga giving a breath of fresh air to the GG.
