These are from Gamepro magazine. I have listed a few with the scale that was used. Later on they switched review formats.
 
I will try to find more and list the scale. 1 to 5.

Thanks Laird! I think it is interesting how different views around the world shaped what we played as kids. I appreciate Rogue Trooper for sharing :113:

I do not recall anything about Wing Commander on the MD. That is interesting :39: Thanks for sharing that info. I will keep checking old magazines and see if anything turns up.

Before i post any more scores, slight 'disclaimer' (LOL).Scores from say Mega Tech, whilst i'd love to include more 'detail' ie reviewers comments, i only have the odd issue, so scores taken from the A-Z reviews index they print at the back of the magazine.

Anywho few more:

Eternal Champions CD/C+VG/92% 'A really superb example of how to make use of the space a CD affords.It may crank up the development time, but the waits been well worth it' (reviewer does mention it's not quite as playable as MK2 or SF2).They'd given the cart version 92% earlier.


BC Racers/C+VG, mini-box out in 32X review (which got 83%), MCD version mentioned, scored 78%, seems to lack in speed was comment.


Fatal Fury Special/Mean Machines SEGA/Overall 36% 'Looks like the 1st Street Fighter.If only it had come out 8 years ago.Dire.crap.Awful (bit of an 'odd' comment, MCD was'nt around 8 years previous).


Jurassic Park/C+VG/ 87%-It's not quite the interactive movie we were promised, but impressive all the same.

Not seen the 'show', but am i right in thinking the AVGN say's MCD Batman Returns has too many driving stages?.If so, quite surprised to hear this as they were fantastic, not only from a technical point of view, really showcasing the hardware, but broke up the platforming really well.

Interesting scores. BC Racers seems to be about the same as the SCD and 32X in the States. I will try to check for sure. The 32X always seems to get a bad wrap compared to the Sega Mega CD of the same games on both systems.
