Rambo III was one of the early Sega Genesis and Mega Drive titles, released back in 1989 for the US and in 1990 for Europe. It’s based fairly loosely on the film of the same name, which was a typical 80s action movie starring the muscle-bound Sylvester Stallone.
The basic story for the game is that aliens have invaded Springfield and it is up to you (Bart) to prevent them from building a “super weapon” by spraying things purple, collecting hats and stealing balloons… Yeah… you heard me right…
The first thing that hits you with Lion King is the detail and quality of the game. The music, graphics and animation are absolutely superb. Each level and character feels authentic to the movie, thanks mostly to the digicel technology that was used in the previous Aladdin Mega Drive game. The second thing that hits you though is the frustrating difficulty. The first level is an absolute breeze to play through, but then we begin to hit a few problems…
I can remember my Dad taking me to see this movie at the cinema and that moment when the dinosaurs first appeared on screen. I was completely blown away! Over the next few months, Jurassic Park the video game was released on the NES, Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive or Genesis. They were quite different, but in this review we’re going to focus on the Sega version.
The Sega Mega Drive or Genesis is one of my all time favourite games consoles, so I decided to highlight what I think are the top 5 games to start your collection. There’s a lot of incredible games out there, so I’ve tried to focus mainly on the games which are fairly easy to find in good condition for a reasonable price.
In 1992 a new, brutal and exciting fighting game franchise blasted onto the scene and punched Street Fighter 2 right in the balls! It was everywhere and the gore, the violence, mixed with an impressive level of realism (for the time), created a controversial whirlwind in the media. Just about everyone was outraged, apart from those who dwelled in the arcades, uppercutting their friends into a pit of spikes.
