Sega Mega Drive/Genesis

"Ristar is a 2D platformer game made by the Sonic Team (back when they were good) in 1995. When the game was released it was overlooked because it was during the end of the SEGA Genesis lifecycle and people were excited about the SEGA Saturn and other 5th generation systems. Nevertheless, Ristar is one of my favorite games and a classic that might even surpass the blue blur." - Part of the full review.

 

I picked to review Ristar for Review a Great Game Day because it's such an overlooked gem that I felt it needed more praise. Ristar was made by The Sonic Team but unfortunately came out right at the end of the SEGA Genesis' lifecycle. Not many people played this game and a sequel was never made, which is a shame because it's one of the best games I've ever played.

 

I hope you enjoy reading the review as much as I enjoyed writing it and replaying Ristar.

Happy Gaming!
