Here are two leftover 32X reviews for your amusement.

Remember when I decided to re-review all of my Corpse Killer games?  Well this is the last of the bunch.  Thank you for your patience!

This new Primal Rage review replaces the really skimpy one that was there before.

So it looks like the Saturn version comes out on top?

Probably, but I do have one more Primal Rage re-review to post - for the 3DO.

Nice one. I've spent some time with the Genesis version of Primal Rage, but not the 32X version yet. I'll keep my expectations low!

BTW do you think you'll do the remaining 32X games at some point?  I think the only US-released games you haven't covered are RBI Baseball '95, Supreme Warrior, and Pitfall.

There are also two European exclusives, DarXide and FIFA Soccer '96, which are worth considering. The FIFA game will run without a problem on a NTSC system, but DarXide has NTSC lockout so you'd need to get a repro or play it on a flashcart.  (Not to mention the fact that it costs over $1000, of course.)

The only Japanese exclusive is a Romance of the Three Kingdoms game that's all in Japanese, and the one Brazilian exclusive, a 32X upgrade of Surgical Strike, is impossible to find (only two copies exist).  So you can safely ignore those.

Arg... I'm glad that the Primal Rage reviews are almost over. I'm a bit burned out by them at this point. It was nice to see a Sega CD/32X review for once. I think there are only 4 games total in that area (if my memory serves me right).

I really love your 32x reviews.  They released it over here in the UK and I think it had about 5 or 10 games.  So to see all these other games that you review it superb. 

Corpse killer wow that just looks so bad.   What I do not get about it is why the zombies start flying at the screen.  It is just bizarre.  Usual bad  palette bit this looks even worse sega CD version.

Thank you for posting this!  I didn't realize I was missing 3 US release reviews - I actually own these games, so yes, the reviews will be forthcoming.  Good to know about the other ones too.

I still think that when the Critic compares games across systems, particularly when referencing the same game across multiple systems (i.e not just comparing to the game on one other system), that there should be some sort of link to those reviews of the game on other systems.

Somebody who isn't aware that the Critic is on one of his 'review the game on every format' run's, might otherwise be confused.

Critic can I ask about the set up for this 32x game.  You said it is a CD game in the title.  So does that mean it works with the Mega CD attached to the megadrive/genesis?  As such surely it should look better than the mega cd version?
Not seeing these games in their physicality gives rise to some unusual questions.  Over here the Genesis was called the mega drive and it had the CD attached to it.  They called it the mega cd but I never bought it as it never seemed to have any good games on it.
Looking at your reviews it seems like there were some good titles.
