A generally excellent if a bit simple platformer during an era where we saw few. I'd have love to have seen more like this during the 32-bit era to balance out the 3d guppies but oh well.

An absolutely amazing platformer full of creative ideas and one of the PlayStation's best games. It deserves a higher profile.

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

A multi genre mashup that should have been a Star Wars fans wet dream. The hype was real but ultimately Shadows of the Empire doesn't live up to it. Long, repetitive levels, dodgy controls, and muddy graphics drown out its good points.

Simply put, one of the greatest shooters of all time. Play this game.

What should have been an easy slam dunk is let down by some odd design choices and pacing. Still solid but it had the potential to be so much more.

Stylish as hell and incredibly fun. A short ride but you will so. so much fun during it.

A solid improvement on the first game but I do question who it is for considering a. the show had long since finished airing and b. it was a late 1994 NES release. Fun but you aren't missing anything special if you skip it.

James Bond 007: the Duel

A long forgotten Bond game before the license exploded in popularity. Not necessarily bad but not something you should actively seek out either.

A bit repetitive and it doesn't match the visual splendor of the arcade but otherwise a solid port and game all around.

Disney's the Little Mermaid

A cool little game that is incredibly easy but mechanically solid. Perfect for young kids, not so much older gamers.
