    Once again mate well done on another fantastic video.
    I actually prefer the Megadrive version, I like the colour scheme and music and also felt it controller better on the Sega machine.
    The snes looks pretty good and is not bad,but I guess for me it is a bit nostalgia as I first played this on the Megadrive

    AMIGA was the best. Using the Joystick for the helicopter movements and the keyboard for the helicopter’s console was so satisfying as it felt like you were flying a real copter.

    Just like the Another World review the Amiga version had the better visuals & sound effects – go Amiga!. The only downer was the 1 button joystick config…

    Having recently played the Megadrive version I was shocked by how weak it all felt compared to the Amiga. I think it’s down to the sound chip again. I like the 1 button controls as well.

    I never played the amiga version so cant comment on that one but playing both the snes and MD version i somehow enjoyed the MD version more just for playability but always wondered how many games there was going to be in this franchise i guessed after the third game popped out lol, but this was a nice difference to the usual scrolling shootings games by simply adding objectives and exploration
