With the minor caveat that it crashed the game half the time.

It was still worth the loading time, and still a lot better than the Spec-bum version :(

Awful Amiga games, in random order:

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Willow (I don't remember if it had been covered yet)
All dogs go to heaven
Bomber Bob (even if a friend of mine sampled the intro song)
Italy 90 soccer
Bubble bobble, just because the C64 version was so better
Into the Eagles Nest
Karate Kid Part II

On the C64, my memories are still haunted by Breakdance (I think has been already mentioned, though).

Atari VCS 2600's Alien - nothing to share with the movie and a poor pac-man clone.

As for Zoids in the above discussion, I liked very much the game: the shield system, the radio jamming tool,, exploration and lots of Red Zoids to shatter in pieces.
I regret I have never be able to finish the game (I managed to arrive at Giant ZRK level), because after some time playing the music started stuttering, the graphics filled with glitches and finally the game froze. I tried both (original) tape and disk versions, on different C64; always had this problem. Any experience of yours?

Cheers

KISS: Psycho Circus - The Nightmare Child for Dreamcast.
Yes, i know its recent (2000), but the PC version was excellent. The graphics were good and the game had gameplay. The Dreamcast version had KISS in.....and thats it. Its pants. It should be a shamer. No, it MUST be a shamer (i paid £3 in total for it off ebay and I STILL feel ripped off!!!)

How about that WWF game which came out for the C64?
The game with less playability than Dragon's Lair.

And don't forget, we thought Sony were the first with PES2008 with their manual notes which said you shouldn't play on a HD TV.

The manual for this said "To fully appriciate the graphics, please sit at least 250 metres away from your TV. Or failing that, just squint"

Mmmm, Miss Elizabeth!

WWF European Rampage was upsetting because the shop assistant assured me it was the best thing since sliced bread as he took £24.99 out of my young hands

How about pretty much any game on the PS1 that is published by Midas?
