Interesting, but the addition at the end make the video pointless lol..

"we could have added virtua fighters and flipped the result"

What a way to appeal to the masses.

Yes, that comment was not really needed at the end of the video.  I do like their technical explanations of the games, though.

I think a better comparison would of been the Jaguar/3D0/CD32. Its an interesting video, marred by strange games choices that its comparing an add-on system vs full system.

Ive only rarely played on a Jag, I always found the controller to be one that was designed by committee. I did really enjoy Tempest 2000. Atari Karts and Rayman did look great though.

I did have a look on Youtube and I feel a little informed on the Jag, even watched a few items on Ebay.

That's one long video.  I'll have to save it for later!  Thanks for posting it, though.  :)

I finally watched the video review of the Jaguar/JagCD and I have to say it is excellent. Very well made. Thanks for posting it, Vadergb!

Watched the videos and can agree with the points made about both systems. A lot of it's down to personal taste and of course, subjective but I'm wondering why go through the task of creating them just to discredit your own work in the closing seconds of each? And if I was supposed to "take it as a playful comparison," what's with the title of the series?
If we're going VS, let's see it through. Don't just waste time with 17+ minutes of interesting comparison data and pull the rug out at the end. Dang, when I'm ready for a fight, I wants bloodshed! :D

Both systems rock, btw 8)
