The Terminator for the Mega CD is my choice. A great run and gunner with an amazing soundtrack that enhances the action and atmosphere even more.

Buck Rogers for the SMD. What a fantastic RPG that was.

Platoon is the one. That game oozes atmosphere and tension. THe first person incursion in the vietkong tunnels and the shooting section by night with the aid of a bunch of bengala are absolute classics. Plus the package was ace, with Tracks of my tears by Smokey Robinson to get in the mood. Classy and Classic!

I remember standing in the shop (I think it was WH Smith's) watching people playing Ghostbusters (on a C64) and thinking how amazing it looked so I bought it (I had a Spectrum). Even though it wasn't quite as good I still thought it was fantastic, but at school on Monday morning I was told it was a terrible game! Don't care, I loved it, played it, finished it!

I have a soft spot for the Megadrive version of Alien 3 - nothing like the film and sadistically-tough, but exudes a great atmosphere; thanks in no small part to the soundtrack.

Bladerunner from Westwood studios. It's was a movie tie in game that I'd been waiting to happen after the poorly adapted CRL version. In 1997 when it finally did become a reality it didn't disappoint - though you needed a good spec PC to run it. I like to think of it as the sequel to the Bladerunner movie.

For me it has to be 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - The Adventure Game'. I was a big fan of Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken on the C64 and when I saw screenshots of this game I just KNEW that I had to get an Amiga!
