EU VC Releases - 7th December - Sega Week
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Breaking the norm again this month, Sega only releases two games instead of the usual three. No matter though when both of them are great! Rolling Thunder 2 is one of Dazza's favourites. It borrows some elements from Shinobi and combined it with arcade action, as there's enemies coming at you from all sides. While somewhat short, the game just oozes quality every step you take, with great music, graphics and gameplay.
The other Mega Drive offering is Light Crusader, an isometric Action RPG which is somewhat similar to Landstalker. Don't ignore it - It's a Treasure game! If you've played games like Gunstar Heroes, Sin & Punishment and Alien Soldier you know they rock, and this game is no exception, despite being slightly less good than their other games. Check it out!
The non-Mega Drive offering today is Cybernator for the SNES, a fast-paced action platformer where you play as a big robotic suit and blast the heck out of everything. The opposite of Rolling Thunder 2, this is one of Damo's favourites.
That's three great games today. If you're not afraid to spend points on games you've never played (I'm pointing at you, people who call this week bad!) then this week could get expensive!
