Summary

The CD32 has the best version of Robocod

The Good

Robocod has been released on multiple platforms. James Pond can be enjoyed on no less than 10 systems. With so many conversions around I have played almost all of them. The NDS version has some original new levels and the penguin bombs have been replaced by santa's little helpers. Since there was never a reference to the penguin chocolates, what was the reason to keep the penguin bombs in it? But the cd32 version took me by surprise, it positively has the same graphics as the Amiga 500 version but it has at least better control with the cd32 gamepad and it has surprisingly good audio tracks! There is also some sort of James Bond tune when you approach Santa's castle. It seems to have better gameplay than the 16-bits versions. Pond has some additional "ouch" screams when he gets hurt that are not in the Sega version. The SNES version had the better colours but unfortunately it was ruined by horrible slowdown. But there are even more extra's. It has an introduction movie and a great filing system where you can read about every enemy that is in the game.

The Bad

The tunes are jolly but they can also get on your nerves!

The Bottom Line

Finally a cd32 game that uses a cd disc to it's potential. Until today, it is still the best version of James Pond 2.
