Atari Jaguar & Jaguar CD
A while back I posted & reviewed a promo tape for the Atari Jaguar. Just about everything I have to say about the system is there. It was a "64-bit" system that was inferior to its 16 and 32-bit competitors. The Genesis and Super Nintendo had games that were just plain better while the Saturn and Playstation blew it away visually
The Jaguar Core System was down to $99.99 at this point but would shortly fall to $49.99.
I'm sure the Jaguar port of NBA Jam Tournament Edition was somewhere between the Super Nintendo and Saturn versions. Even today I frequently play the Saturn version, this would be one of the Jaguar games I'd like to pick-up.
Defender 2000 is one of the 6 or so Jaguar games I own. Like Tempest 2000 and Rayman, it's a fun game that could easily have been done on a 16-bit system.
Count Zoop among the the list of "Jaguar games that were virtually indistinguishable from their 16-bit counterparts". This time it's not a knock on the Jaguar though, Zoop wasn't really a high-tech game to begin with.
Good ole' Dragon's Lair. It also appeared on the Sega CD, PC, and 3DO. It was basically a staple of multimedia systems until the Saturn and Playstation decided to pass on it.
Space Ace was something of an unofficial sequel to Dragon's Lair only faster-paced (and not quite as good). Unlike Dragon's Lair, I don't recall actually seeing this at our store.
