Don’t look now, but we snuck in 11 eliminations this week!
Revenge of Shinobi – Maybe Shinobi’s trying to get revenge against whoever keeps putting him in these awful games.
Toxic Crusaders – This game plays like something a fifth grader would draw on his Trapper Keeper.
Operation Europe: Path to the Victory – There’s no way conquering France should ever be this hard.
Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade’s Revenge – Any Spiderman game in which you have to jump from window ledge to window ledge in order to climb a tall building displays a fundamental lack of understanding of what a Spiderman is.
Paperboy 2 – Takes everything you loved about the first Paperboy and says “Really, you didn’t like any of it?Well, we’ll make a sequel anyway.”
Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure – C’mon, it can’t be this hard to make a game that’s better than the original Pitfall!
Ren & Stimpy: Stimpy’s Invention – Too bad Stimpy couldn’t invent a Genesis game that wasn’t at least a tiny bit likeable.
Olympic Summer Games ’96 – Quick, name one memorable moment from the 1996 Summer Games that doesn’t involve a bomb going off.
Columns III: Revenge of Columns – Wait… Revenge of what?!
Dynamite Headdy – Yes, this seems like a perfectly acceptable use of time and resources that otherwise might have been put towards making a Gunstar Heroes 2.
Rastan Saga II – Funny, I specifically remember the first Rastan game not sucking.
