AFTER BURNER Pure Arcade Adrenaline
If you've ever been in a video arcade, chances are you've wrapped your hands around the control stick of Super Afterburner. Now you can play the complete arcade version on your Genesis 32X with Afterburner on 32X. This one has it all: lightning-fast aerial combat, the power to jink and roll, a machine cannon, and Vulcan missiles. Pick up the control pad on this title, and you experience a large chunk of Sega gaming history, not to mention aerial combat that continues to set standards by which all jet shoot-'em-ups are measured.
If Afterburner has any shortcoming, it's that the original title was in the arcades so long before coming to the Genesis 32X. But then again, it's still out there snatching quarters, which just goes to show you that good game play is timeless.
