|Game||Shadow of the Beast|
|Author/Vendor||Psygnosis / Electronic Arts|
|The story of a mutant humanoid who embarks on a long and dangerous quest
to gain true humanity; and once having found it, must embark upon another
quest to save that which he holds most dear. Ported from the now-legendary
series of Amiga arcade games that made Psygnosis a name of whispered reverence
among gaming fans.
Well I remember when the first game was released for the Amiga and blew everyone away with its mind-numbing graphics, spectacular stereo music tracks, and intense gameplay. It's a real shame that the Genesis music is only an echo of the original (not to mention the loss of the intermission artwork from the first game and the intro from the second), but the eye-popping graphics and frustratingly hard gameplay are still there. Handicapped as they are, the Genesis ports are equal or superior to the SNES versions in evey single category. If you can't get the Amiga originals, then get these!
