3 Ninjas Kick Back

3NinjasKickBack000.png
Malibu Interactive / Sony Imagesoft 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

The Mega Drive was filled with many memorable titles ranging from Sonic the Hedgehog to Streets of Rage, though 3 Ninjas Kick Back can be considered one of the more forgettable experiences you will probably have on the Mega Drive console. You begin with the choice of three characters, all of whom are from the movie the game is based on, each come with their own unique weapons that include a bo, a katana, and twin swords. The enemies you encounter are pretty generic, ranging from dogs to ninjas, and the boss fights are not practically challenging though they can be cheap at times. The downside to the game is that each character, besides their weapons, play identically to each other, they possess the same speed, power, and jumping distance. The game consists of 5 levels, which are segmented into smaller parts, and can be generally frustrating at times to locate the exit. Though, once you get the gist of it, the game can be completed in a little over a half an hour. Overall, the soundtrack of the game is it’s only redeeming quality, as it sounds as good as some of the better Mega Drive titles.

Raging obesity is not such a huge issue in Japan compared to countries like the USA or Russia (though I hear McDonald's is gaining foothold). Ironically enough, they nevertheless have a strange obsession with Sumo Wrestling over there – two incredibly fat guys basically turning into a big mass of jelly.


Cannon Fodder

Sensible Software 1994
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

I'm sure many of us have played this game and know for sure what will be discussed. The game was released back in 1993 on the Amiga, and later in 1994 ported to the Amiga CD, Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive. I have no Amiga, so I hooked up with this game for Sega Mega Drive – this is what I want to tell.

When it was time to sell SEGA's new console they needed something spectacular to showcase it. You know how this thing goes, wrap it with something everybody loves, such as this arcade beat-them-up, and put it in a new shiny envelope to attract buyers.


LHX Attack Chopper

LHX000.png
Electronic Arts 1992
Genre: Action, Simulation
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive, PC (DOS)
The SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive port of this rather popular arcade-style simulation game from the early 90s looks just the same as the PC version, but with some major gameplay features left out (as it usually goes for ported games). For example, the ability to choose missions is no more, and there is a fixed order for the missions in the game. Then, instead of four helicopters in the PC version, there are just two here – the LHX itself and the Apache. The controls are simplified for the gamepad, but it unexpectedly became quite tricky. But besides some flaws (which are flaws mostly for those familiar with the PC version), this was the excellent flying video game for the time and for the platform, and could be easily considered a helicopter simulation against a background of countless platformers and real arcade flight games available for Mega Drive. And many, I think, hold the sweet memories for the LHX: Attack Chopper. I do. -Tatarus33

Night Trap

Rating: 3/6

System: Mega Drive

This might as well be called a review of the reviews of this particular game, seeing that it still seems to provoke quite an emotional reaction with many of those people who care enough to actually write something about it down. Apparently, it caused quite a stir in North America when it was first released, leading up to parliamentary hearings about moral standards in video games – that getting regularly ridiculed in most of said retrospective reviews.


Taz-Mania

Recreational Brainware / Sega 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

A cartoon licenced game not made by Ocean… so there is hope that this one turns out to be semi-decent. Until you actually try it and have your hopes let down. No, shattered. And the remains then stomped into the ground, set on fire and then dynamited for good measure.
