US VC Releases - 17th December - Cybernator
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
A lot of shooting in today's three US games! First up is Cybernator, the SNES game where you control a large robotic suit and blast your way through a multitude of stages. It's one of the more popular "lesser known" SNES games and as such is quite a cult classic.
The second game today is Monster Lair, the TurboGrafx-CD version of Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair for the arcade and Mega Drive. However, unlike every other TurboGrafx Wonder Boy game, this one keeps the Wonder Boy license intact instead of replacing characters! The only difference is the CD soundtrack. Unfortunately, while almost all Wonder Boy games are good, this is one of the lesser ones.
The last game today has been on the Coming Soon list for a <i>long</i> time - it's Alien Storm for the Genesis. In this beat 'em up you don't beat up street punks and thugs like most others - You beat up aliens!
Cybernator's a great game, and Alien Storm is also pretty good, but Monster Lair is below average. Check out the reviews:
