Auch die Mega-Drive-Umsetzung des Dino-Jump‘n‘Runs überzeugt durch viel Spielwitz, Tempo und niedliche Grafik. Jeder Level bietet neue Überraschungen, sogar die spielscheuen Damen unserer Layout-Abteilung waren von den Abenteuern des munteren Sauriers begeistert. Überrascht hat mich, daß sich die Entwickler tatsächlich bemüht haben, ein eigenständiges Spiel zu kreieren, anstatt wie meist üblich das SNES-Original zu kopieren. Radical Rex gehört auch auf dem Mega Drive zu den besten Jump‘n‘Runs, Sonic und sein ganzen Kumpels läßt er weit hinter sich.

Toller Sound, witzige Grafik und ein echt abgefahrener Held lassen das originelle Hüpfspielchen in die Oberliga des Genres aufsteigen.

A platformer worth a play – if not a purchase. Give it a try, and see what you’re missing.

Younger gamers will make Rex their pal - he's as friendly and fun as a good Saturday morning cartoon. Older gamers, however, will want dinos with a bit more bite.

Kurz gesagt, es fehlt der gewisse Schuß Originalität. Abgesehen von der leicht schwammigen Steuerung bringt Radical Rex eine solide Spielbasis mit. Der berühmte Funke will jedoch nicht überspringen.

People often say that easy games are for kids. I’ve often found that odd as I beat some very difficult games as a child, many of which I only later found out were considered difficult. Radical Rex is a game that I would have liked much more as a child than I do now. If I was reviewing it with childhood memories, I have no doubt I would be much kinder. The problem with Radical Rex isn’t that it is difficult in parts but that it isn’t difficult at all until halfway through the game and then only during the boss fights. This inconsistency really hurts the overall experience in what is a decent if unexceptional platformer. A few tweaks with hit-points and just making the easy and normal modes fit their respective definitions wouldn’t have made Radical Rex a great game but it would have been much better.
