  1. The graphics are horrible, and made even worse by that hellish "smoothing" filter. Your powered-up hero has a bulky weightlifter's body with a tiny comedy head on top, while enemy designs are lumpy and ugly.

    A quick time diversion and better left for those with strong nostalgic memories only.

It's port was every kid's reason for buying a Sega Genesis. IGN is the **** of gaming websites and their 'journalism' is not to be trusted here. You can't review a classic title made available for cheap download by modern day standards. They should have their card pulled. 10. Full Review »
