Gain Ground. Sega (1991) Sega Genesis

This game is hard to describe, not in a Toejam and Earl kinda way, just that it is odd and I like it despite not being able to come up with a tangible reason for liking it.

Space Harrier. Sega AM4 (1985) Arcade

Space Harrier was released in arcades in 1985, and while I was about 1 when this was released, I did play this a bit in the arcades in the early 90s, I don’t remember much about it so I thought

Golden Axe Warrior. Sega (1991) Sega Master System

I’ll be honest, I thought I was going to absolutely hate this game. I don’t especially like the Golden Axe series, and lets be honest, this game looks like a Legend of Zelda clone. So let me take you on

Golden Axe 3. Sega AM7 (1993) Sega Genesis

I really didn’t like Golden Axe, and while Golden Axe II was slightly better, it still wasn’t a good game. So rather than prolonging my suffering I decided to play the final installment in the Golden Axe saga (that isn’t

Shining Force II, Sonic Software (1994) Sega Genesis

I enjoyed Shining Force, in fact I enjoyed it so much I decided to jump almost straight into the sequel. I’ll be honest, fatigue did set in a few times, and I struggled to play for long periods, but that

Streets of Rage 3, Sega (1994) Sega Genesis

Streets of Rage is good, and Streets of Rage 2 is marginally better, and I am on a Megadrive kick at the moment, I thought I’d finish of this trilogy. So… Is SoR3 any good?

Golden Axe II. Sega AM7 (1992) Sega Genesis

All right, so I didn’t like Golden Axe. I thought it was bland, the combat wasn’t very interesting and what little fun there was is exhausted after 5 minutes of playing. So with 2 whole years between this release and

Beyond Oasis, Ancient (1995) Sega Genesis

Called The Story of Thor: A Successor of The Light in Europe, but as there is no mention of anybody, or anything named Thor, we’ll break from tradition and call this game by the American title, and feature the American

Streets of Rage II. Sega (1993) Sega Genesis

I like Streets of Rage, it holds up in a way that Golden Axe simply doesn’t, and like the inevitability of the tide, I come to Streets of Rage 2, arguably the best of the trilogy. With that, it isn’t

Shining Force. Climax Entertainment (1993) Sega Genesis

After chatting to a number of people on Twitter, and seeing a “Top Genesis games” list that featured Shining Force as the top Megadrive game,  I figured I would finally have a playthrough and see what it is all about.
