As simplistic as it was, the Star Wars coin-op was loads of fun and I lost a great deal of time and money playing it as a teenager.

This game I despise.  There are no redeeming features at all for me.

+Bernard Letting Um...I've got the the AT-AT levels many times in Mame. It just needs a bit of practice and intelligent controls calibration.

I think it's an okay game, but yeah, definitely not as good as the vector-based ones.

I came to the Lotus trilogy quite late only really discovering them when I got my emulator.  I do enjoy them all very much.  I agree that the jump from 2 to 3 isn't as obvious as the jump from 1 to 2 but I think 3 has its place although I think I would have been peeved to pay full price for 3 back in the day.

The Lotus trilogy - how Outrun should have been done.

Am sure the game is superb but that music is awful.

Good video.  I may end up doing some video responses to some of these just to answer some of the questions myself.  As for this one there really is no surprise that my answer is Castle Falkenstein.  Although if the answer was to be something that is seen as a more obvious example it would be Pendragon although Dragon Age is fast coming into the frame as is Blue Rose.


I notice from the list that there is no question regarding urban fantasy settings so I may ahve to include some of those within the scope of fantasy.

Excellent review.  I'd never heard of this product but am now keen to grab a copy for use primarily with Blue Rose/True20 and Savage Worlds although I have other fantasy RPGs that I could use it with.  Heck from the sounds of it you could divorce a great deal of the magic out of it and use it as a great city for A Song Of Ice & Fire or even Pendragon.

Love that it uses electric 6's Danger High Voltage for its tune.

I used to play this game in the local arcade when I was a kid.  Wasn't much good at it but I definitely enjoyed playing it all the same.  Was amazed this game, in fact the entire series, wasn't ported to the Amiga as it would have been so much fun to play.

For my money the best anti-drugs song ever written.

Sonically the game is a huge step up on the first one when you see it with the AY sound FX but the colours I find to be too much.  This game would have benefitted hugely from more static, simpler backgrounds like the first one.  because of the colours I find the 2nd one almost unplayable which is a shame as it really is a very good game in terms of its speed and responsiveness and sound effects.

+Ronnie Bradley Yep certainly more sore to the eyes but a lovely game to play once you get over that.

An absolute stinker of a game on all formats.  No real redeeming features at all.  Just another very rushed, very lame, licence.

Yep, I wanted to make RZX some years ago, but I never completed the second level.

This was one of those games that really should have been so much better on the 16-bits.  I had the Amiga version and I was expecting an arcade perfect conversion which to be honest given the game should have been a breeze.  The graphics weren't exactly amazing and there were a few tunes yes but nothing extravagent.

Sadly we got a very lazy port indeed on the 16 bits which for my money is no where near as good as it should have been.  Both the ST and Amiga were capable of getting full ports and we were both let down.

+Ronnie Bradley I agree, it does seem to be mostly the polish and finishing touches that are lacking from this conversion. It plays well, but it would have been nicer to get sprites that were closer to the originals and a few more tunes at least.


Maybe it's a candidate for a future touch-up, a la Pacman STE and Great Gianna Sisters? I better get learning some more assembly... :D
