Nice list. Where thoses mock-up screen shots? Some looked like 3DO shots?

It would have been cool if they had been released.

It pains me to see all these missed opportunities.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Unlike the other 3 videos in this series none of these games used real Jag screenshots, they were all 3DO, Saturn or SNES screens.  :(

One reason why I left these publishers until last.

At least they can be played on other systems. Jaguar versions really would have been the best.

TFX was CANNED on Playstation-Code just running too slowly plus developers struggled with getting control scheme onto PS Pad were reasons given if memory serves.

Seem to recal E.W.J on PS1 just being straight SNES port (at least MCd ver.had extra level) though been an age since i saw it-Hated game to be honest.

Freelancer Jag CD-Recal interview with developers in Gamesmaster mag, said Atari went into 'utterly Mental' mode, wanted lots of fast polygon 3D, texture mapping etc, to make it compete with PS/Saturn games, they then planned to 'upgrade' game for PS, but sadly nothing came of it.

AVP 2:Atari talked of concepts of it using the V.R headset and Jaguar link up, in hands of right developer, could have been something special, would have said Rebellion, but after the PS3/360/PC AVP as well as PSP AVP games...NO!.


Anywho, superb vids.Dactyl Joust looked fantastic, gutted that never made it.

That looks like it could have been a great game!
Really a shame it was never finished¬†  :(

:-)

Thats from my 'scrap box' of magazine articles i've collected over the years.

God, i so wanted this game, looked gorgeous, sounded my kinda thing, hopes dashed, then raised when i read in Gamesmaster it had been canned, only to be a wip on PSone, then studio was bought and nothing came of it, sob.....

Looking over the complete list. I say one thing: the Jaguar got hosed. Those are some impressive games that did not get ported.
