Being a big fan of Final Fight I was REALLY disappointed.
I remember playing the Amiga conversion of Final Fight, which I thought it was well below average. Just like Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, it doesn't felt suited on the home computer and not able to handle the collision detection perfectly well. Plus the frame rate didn't help at all.

.... that's if you can even control it!

The controls are the most unresponsive I've seen for a game like this in ages.

FF7 on the Playstation. I tried so hard to like it, but it was just a load of crap.

Dynamite Cop! on the Dreamcast. What it's doing on issue 50's "And the rest..." is beyond me. I thought that was only for good games. The graphics are awful, the action is slow and dull and the scripting could have opened the gates to Hell. To top it all off it has such a hilariously high opinion of itself it's almost worth trying to unlock all the secrets to read the development notes, series history, comic book etc.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

I wouldn't say its quite that bad, but yeah, from the development notes it seems they take the game a tad too seriously. There are some genuinely humorous comments in there if I recall though.

Area 51 is passable and I like the Lethal Enforcers games. I'll give you Crypt Killer

Kane on the Vic20 - it was only a mastertronic budget game - which involved some rock hard shooting and some jumping on a horse and er...that's it. The game was as lame as the horse it featured. I still weep for my wasted paper round money.
