Comix Zone. Sega Technical Institute (1995) Sega Genesis

To say this game is remembered fondly would be an understatement. Ask most people to do a “best Megadrive” list and 9 times out of 10 Comix Zone will feature in the top 5. But here at Games Revisited we like to shit on your nostalgia goggles.

And with that, how does Comix Zone stand up to our neck-bearded modern eyes? Continue reading

Crash Bandicoot XS. Vicarious Visions (2002) GameBoy Advance

I am not sure which name is worse, Crash Bandicoot XS or it’s non PAL name Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. There would be a good argument the XS stands for excessive if you’re dyslexic, but “Huge” is certainly a stretch. Continue reading

James Bond 007: The Duel. The Kremlin (1993) Sega Genesis

Coming four years after Timothy Dalton’s last filmic appearance as the suave secret agent, The Duel marks the last official appearance of Dalton as 007. So what game will they give him as an official send off?  Continue reading

Donkey Kong Country 2 : Diddy’s Kong Quest. Rareware (1995) Super Nintendo

I like to think that Rare at this point was being run by nihilistic anime edge-lords. How else do you explain Kiddy Kong? Continue reading

Kirby’s Adventure. Hal Laboratory (1993) Nintendo

I bagged on Kirby’s Dream Land, and in hindsight I feel a little bad about it. It was ludicrously short, and childlike in difficulty, but it was supposed to be and in retrospect I don’t really think some of my issues were fair. So going into Kirby’s Adventure I tried to remain a little more open minded. Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Palcom (1990) Nintendo

The original TMNT game gets a lot of bad press, and I am fairly sure this is entirely down to an Angry Video Game Nerd video way back in the day, as almost everybody that bangs on about it being bad talks about the Dam level. So obviously I thought I’d go back and see what it is like and how far I can get. Continue reading

Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic Team (1991) Sega Genesis

Everyone loves Sonic right?

Well, you might have noticed a trend on this site that suggests we aren’t the biggest fans of the entire series. But the first one? That was a masterpiece! Right? Continue reading
