I just bought Revolution X for the Saturn, and was completely miffed @ the fact theres no gun support... AT ALL!

Theres not many other games i've been disappointed with, but are there any you've bought, and since regretted???

Hmmm, tea, I was very disapointed when I bought Burning Rangers. The games grafx are low res and pixily, their are lots of polly drop outs, the controls are terrable, and the length of the game is pathetic (only four levels). I spent $50 on the game, and for that I expect a lot more then what Burning Rangers delivers.

I once paid $60 for NBA Showdown for the SNES. My gosh, that game was horrible. It was pretty much a waste of money. Controls were sluggish, and the graphics were pretty blocky and grainy. I played the Genesis version of that game at someone's house, and it at least had good play control on the Genesis version.

Another game I remember buying that was a complete rip off was Killer Instinkt for the SNES. I got it the day it came out for like $70, mainly because I loved the arcade version. The port was terrable though, the grafx were no where near that of the arcades. I ended up loseing the music cd that came with it, and selling the game to a pawn shop for $5.

Killer Instinct actually had pretty impressive graphics and sound for the SNES. I believe that ACM (Advanced Computer Modeling) graphics were used on that game like the Donkey Country games. Of course, console games usually don't have as good of sound and graphics as their arcade counterparts.

Well yea, the grafx were impressive for the SNES, but were still no comparison to the arcade unit. Even by todays standards, I think the grafx of the arcade version are very nice.

The game that left me feeling ripped off most was Tiberian Sun for the PC. I loved the previous C&C efforts, and when this came out I thought it was going to be a treat.

What do I get? Derivative gameplay, marginally better graphics, appaling cutscenes and a burning A$90 hole in my pocket.

Never even finished it :(

If you notice, you'll see a letter "A" in front of the dollar sign. Occasionally, it stands for "Australian" - especially when it is in front of a dollar sign.

heh, I'd have to say Star Voyager for the NES. I didn't buy it, my friend gave it to me, but it soon met with a hammer. The game is fricking retarded, all you do is sit in space with the sound of air going by (no music), some guns and a warp engine thing. It would be fun if the space actually had stuff in it, but there's nothing. It sucks I tell you!!! :)

Checkered Flag for the Jaguar.... I saw it in the bargain bin at KB for two bucks... seeing as I only owned one game at the time, I thought it would have been the game that could puch me to collect more... I haven't bought another Jaguar game since.

Think of it as Pole Position with a slightly lower frame rate and more options.

Those two bucks would have been better spent on a Double Gulp and copy of the LA Times
