Mean Machines (Dec, 1995)
A thoroughly entertaining blast from start to finish. Invest in it now!
If you are constantly on the go and want a great title with the equivalent power of a 16-bit release in the palm of your hand, be sure to pick up Arena. Game Gear game of the year in '96?

Als ich Arena: Maze of Death für den Game Gear kaufte, waren meine Erwartungen im Keller - ich konnte mir nichts so recht vorstellen. Nach den ersten Sekunden im Spiel und beim Anblick der Iso-3D Optik begeistert, sollte sich dies mit der bockigen Steuerung und dem zünftigen Schwierigkeitsgrad bald wieder ändern. Heute würde ich den Titel irgendwo im gesunden Mittelmaß einordnen. Wenn man ihn denn findet (nicht ganz so häufig) kann man als Fan des Genre schon zugreifen, darf aber keine Revolution erwarten.

In short this game is very by-the-books in terms of execution, but by being so very typical it isn't something you will invest too much time into. And I still can't believe I paid what I did for a Game Gear game no one remembers.
