Même si le côté arcade rend sa durée de vie assez éphémère, Comix Zone est un titre fun que les amateurs de beat'em all devraient apprécier. Malgré son concept original et sa technique frôlant la perfection, le jeu ne donnera pourtant jamais lieu à une suite. Dommage.
The game is arguably a little too tough, with plenty of ways to lose health but few to top it back up again, and there are a couple of precision do-or-die leaps that act as stark reminders of the game's unforgiving vintage. Those caveats aside, Comix Zone still impresses with its ideas and execution and is a definite highlight of SEGA's retro line-up.
Whilst Sega decides how best to get Sonic the Hedgehog fans to forgive them, they might wish to put a remake of Comix Zone on the cards, too. The charm, difficulty, and writing are a huge plus, and for a game released in 1995, I had a blast playing through it again. If you’ve been enjoying games such as Comic Jumper or you have a penchant for classic beat ‘em ups, then try Comix Zone.
Comix Zone is one of my favorite Genesis titles, but SEGA has done a real disservice with this version. The "enhanced" visual setting makes the game look worse than the classic view and the dodge move is almost impossible to pull off. There have been a lot of old games released on XBLA at this point and most of them were given more care and attention than Comix Zone. Love the game, just not this version.
