Description

The Genesis version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a one-on-one fighting game based on the TV series, featuring two playing modes: one-player scenario mode and two-player battle mode.

In scenario mode, the evil Rita Repulsa sends a number of her monsters (and the evil Green Ranger) after the Power Rangers, who must defeat each in one-to-one combat. Before every bout, players can select a different ranger to play. Each of the five matches consists of two rounds: after the first round, the monster usually changes form into a larger version of itself (the Green Ranger summons his Dragonzord instead), which the Power Rangers must then fight again using their Megazord mecha. After the Green Ranger is defeated, he also becomes available as a playable character for the remaining fights.

In battle mode, players can select from the six rangers, four monsters and two Zords to fight each other in best-of-three matches in almost all combinations (the Zords and the Cyclopsis monster cannot be matched against any of the rangers, and both players cannot play the same character).

Two of the controller's buttons are used for normal and fierce attacks, while blocking is done by either pulling back from the enemy for standard blocks or pushing both buttons simultaneously for a powerful block that reflects even enemy projectiles. Button combinations unleash different special moves for each character.

A good game

The Good
This was a good game because it perfectly captures the attitude of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from the show's first season, making it a game a fan of any age could enjoy.

A friend can also connect a controller to your Genesis and the two of you can play a very fun two player mode, which not only includes the Power Rangers, but the Megazord/Dragonzord, and all of Rita's monsters that are seen in the game.

The Bad
The game control combos are a little bit confusing until you get used to them. By that I mean that each character needs a different button sequence to perform a special move.

Strangely enough, though, the sequence for using the Ranger Blaster is the same for all the Rangers and the Megazord, and probably other characters, also. This is a good thing.

The game is a little short. I understand that this game was created only a short while after Season One started to air, but if monsters such as the Grumble Bee were included, it would enrich the gaming experience. A final showdown against Rita herself on the moon would be very awesome also, instead of just having to fight Cyclopsis.

The Bottom Line
Power Rangers at their best. A walk down memory lane with real Mighty Morphin monsters from the show. This is a game every Mighty Morphin fan should try.
