I can't find my copy of this game, and now I've had to order one off Ebay.

I remember being so impressed with this game back in the day. After the obligatory FPS rush started by Doom, sub-par titles were being flooded into the market, and I had no reason to believe this would be any different at all. The lackluster start seemed to confirm this for me, and I almost just gave up there and then. But the time I'd reached the platforming bit with the one-hit-kill lasers (you know the one ) I'd almost wished I had, but was having a blast. Killer review to sum that up.

In half a year's time, you should do Fighter's Megamix. It has the car from Daytona as a selectable fighter.

Yeah, the lasers in this game are a nightmare. I found a hidden path in a very late stage that was just a series of cramped shafts with lasers. I thought the final receiver piece was hidden here, so I just went through it, dying countless times. And when I thought I was near the end.... MORE lasers!! Long story short, the end didn't have the piece, but stupid dolls of the developers. >:|

Thanks for reading, and I dunno if I'm capable of reviewing Megamix, since my biggest weakness is writing for fighting games. Though, it's a game I've wanted to try out since the 90s, but never got an opportunity. I'll still probably get it just to play it, since it still sells decently at a used price. Honestly, I'm shocked it's not as expensive as some other games like Burning Rangers or PD Saga, since it's a Saturn exclusive with some absurd content in it.

I head spaceshit noises.
