Gremlins 2 on the NES was quite good, too.

the amiga version was passable, but the Nes version erally shone.
the graphics beat anything that had been done before.

its a shame i gave my nes to my nephew.......damn my sister!!!

Batman Returns on the SNES was absolutely brilliant.

Woah yes It was a great beat-em-up all those different moves you could do, way better than the Snes version of Final Fight!!

Definitely Ghostbusters, but I preffered the Master System version. I also quite liked License To Kill on the CPC 464 back in the day, but realise now it's rubbish! The Indy Jones games have all been good too.

Star Wars on the Master System is bloody good. And Alien 3 on the Megadrive and SNES. Very different games, but brilliant both.

One of the most under-rated games on the 3DO. Casper - against all the odds -- apathy, desire to cash-in by the publishers, it's Casper FFS, this game is pretty good. Also, considering the platform ;)

It is region protected, unusual for the 3DO.

I should also mention Demolition Man on 3DO which is OKish too.

My god, thank you for reminding me! My dad bought me that as a treat on Holiday in the Norfolk Broads, but I didnt have my SNES with me, had to wait 5 whole days (which to a 14 yr old with a new game equates to about a year) till I got home and put it on! What a game, now you got me thinking about my top 5 movie licences...............

Some great game suggested so far. I'd like to offer up the 8-bit UK Electronic Dreams version of Aliens. For a budget game based on a movie license it was awesome.

Spooky... I'd bought Batman Returns when I was 14 on holiday and I had to wait nearly a week to get it home and play it!

Anyway, my main memory of that game is being able to pick up a thug and fling him against a wall in the background. I thought they really nailed down the sound of bone crunching against brick.
:shock:
Well, I imagine thats what it would sound like
