From the end of this year, worldwide hardware production of Sega's messed-up black breezeblock will cease. Software will still be produced until the middle of next year, because, according to Sega president Shoichiro Irimaji "five million people still continue to use the system. For one final time, we round up the Saturn's greatest moments with a dewy tear streaking down our cheeks. ——————————————————————————————————1/4—— Turner = worm 196 The Boozler 152 ICH BIN EIN SPIELPLATTER p480 Reviews Reviews TV Club 140

Apparently, we'd "missed the point of the game". We stand corrected for eternit9. SONIC 3D Naturally, when Sonic finally did appear on the Saturn, Sega wanted to do its best to showcase both its mascot and the machine. To this end the firm ported over an isometric Mega Drive game and upped the colour pallette a little bit. ——————————————————————————————————2/4—— The News 671 Worm 196 THE REVIEW FOR YOU p672 Reviews Reviews TV Club 140

The eventual Championship Edition of the game, which came out some years later, not only added several extra courses, but tinkered with the one good thing about the original - the handling of the cars - until it became almost unplayable. ——————————————————————————————————3/4—— Turner = worm 196 The Boozler 152 ICH BIN EIN SPIELPLATTER p480 Reviews Reviews TV Club 140

You have to take your hats off to Sega for trying something new. To whit: a graphically inferior and quite uncontrollable game that wo4ldn't have looked out of place on the Game Gear. FIGHTING VIPERS/FIGHTERS MEGAMIX Aftep setting a high-resolution precedent with Virtua Fighter 2, Sega wanted to do something different with its subsequent beat 'em ups, and ensured the games at least looked different by utilising the Saturn's lo-res mode. ——————————————————————————————————4/4—— GOODBYE, SATURN!
