Summary

Cosmetic changes

The Good

The Sega CD version offers new and improved music, sound effects and intermission sequences.

The Bad

The Sega CD version is a carbon copy of the Genesis version with a few cosmetic changes. If you played the cartridge version on the Genesis you will notice far too few improvements to justify the investment. Even worse, it cannot match the 256, on-screen colors found on the Super Nintendo version of Hook!

The Bottom Line

Hook is a carbon copy of the Sega Genesis version with a few minor changes. It is a decent, single player, side-scrolling platformer, but if you already own the Genesis version, then you can safely give this one a pass.
