RoboCop Versus The Terminator (Sega Game Gear review)

Developer: NMS Software
Publisher: Virgin Games
Released: 1993

RoboCop Versus The Terminator is an action game that was also released on the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Master System in 1993.

+ Mimics the action from the 16-bit version remarkably well, with a healthy amount of missions and satisfying weaponry.

+ Level design's heavy use of verticality is engaging, and there's many secret areas to hunt down for helpful items / weapons.

+ Allows you to play slowly and methodically, or brazenly reckless, in part due to the 8-way fire which gives you total control.

+ Great use of voice samples that are surprisingly clear and add personality to the game's overall presentation.

- Slowdown is rampant from the get-go and it can be very distracting when the action suddenly speeds up and down.

- A number of stages end rather abruptly due to this port omitting several boss battles found in the 16-bit version.

- Camera snaps around in a disorienting fashion, likely to overcompensate for the reduced visibility on the smaller screen.
