Check out this video from GameSack!
Finally had a chance to watch this Game Sack episode. Never tried Shining Force CD
although it sounds epic. I don't like RPGs much so have avoided it. May give it a go at some point.
Agree wholeheartedly about the difficulty in Soul Star
. Got so tired of not finishing it I hacked
it to have near invincibility. Incredible game and probably my favorite for the system. Final Fight CD
is up there as well. In greatness and difficulty. Game Sack guy says that with practice it can be beat but you will
use the continues. Seems no matter how much I practiced could never beat it. So, hacked
it for invincibility too
The visuals are stunning and this is my favorite port on comparable systems.The Terminator
always held its own imo. Great music and gameplay plus a feast for the eyes. A must have.
Had never heard of Devastator
but it looks fun. Grabbing it now to see if some hacks can be done quickly for a play through
Loved the complaints about Cliff Hanger
. Truly difficult game (exclusive snowboarding stages) but I fixed those with hacks
too. One of my top 4 games for the Sega CD Battlecorps
looks nice. Reminds me of Iron Soldier a bit. Haven't played it before but going to give it a spin soon.
The video used from Silpheed
was awesome. I take it they didn't like the game but it's another I got tired of losing at and hacked
. Wanted to see/know what was next! Not cool being on rails but at the time, that was pretty standard.Android Assault
was another tough one but I fixed
that too. Excellent gameplay.
He called Ninja Warriors
but me and a friend blew loads of money on the arcade for this way back. I was elated when I found it on this system. As hard as I remembered it being but a few small changes
and viola, no prob.Dungeon Explorer
seems fun. Going to play this one and see if there's anything I can do to blaze right through. Never was much into Gauntlet or understood what was so great about it but this one sure is purty :p
Ha, BC Racers
, the one I could never hack. Played this game quite a bit and hold it with high regard. Anyone ever beat it?Formula One
looks like World Tour Racing for the Jaguar. His comment about the controls taking a lot of getting used to is enough to easily steer
me in the other direction. See what I did there? Adventures of Batman and Robin
. GS guy said it's extremely hard to win at and he's definitely right about that. Took weeks for me to get nowhere so added that baby to the list
and finally 'finished' it.Popful Mail
has legions of supporters but was never enticing to me. I'm probably missing out on a ton of fun but if it doesn't strike me the right way right away, I stay away. Bad rule of thumb for diversity but it's usually spot on with taste.Eye of the Beholder
always looked like crap to me. This min-review didn't help sway my opinion either. Anyone even actually own this?Sonic CD
is my personal best for the entire franchise. Couldn't get all
I'd wanted but have enough rings to stay alive and enter special zones so that's good enough. While tough, I think it's SUPER FUN
And what SCD library would be complete without Keio Flying Squadron
? Seriously, I thought this game was for little girls when I first saw it. But, wanting to know what was at the end, quickly pounded it with some edits
to make it more playable. While briefly entertaining, the ending was nothing to write home about Robo Aleste
was always a good one for a quick play. The backdrop/ground look nice and though there are too many enemies at any given time for my taste, it handles well and can be frantic and exciting. Wanted to see the end so changed a few bytes
here and there to make it happen
Tried to play Panic
once and two minutes in, slapped the sh*t out of myself for wasting an extra minute and 50 seconds. Not for me.Batman Returns
, another one I tried diligently to hack but couldn't. Too bad too. Would've liked to have disabled that stupid timer right off the bat to get to the 2nd level. At least that way could've gotten some
enjoyment out of this beast. Maybe.Road Avenger
got pretty good marks here. I never cared for the FMV games but may try this out again at some point.
Liked the end of the video when Joe had FMVbola LOL. That was classic.
A lot of these are great games and a few are stinkers but if you want to explore them easier, take a look at my list of hacks
and implement them to make it easier. Heck, you can even burn the resulting file to cd and play the hacked version on real hardware like I did. No protection back then and it's crazy to tear through Soul Star or Final Fight CD on the machine with nothing able to hurt you
(was it really necessary for me to link to the hacks thread 11 times?
