I had no idea ISS Deluxe was released on the MD.

Better on Mega Drive too.

Why? Did it play faster/smoother?

It was quicker and smoother (pal versions I mean) SNES pal games were not great next to an optimised pal MD version, but also the the colour was toned down which made it look better. Factor 5 were the ones whom ported it to Mega Drive.

I thought about doing that, but Wikipedia is only really good for setting poll questions, it’s useless when compiling a personal list.

Aye, I saw they ported after doing a quick bit of research upon seeing Nick's post. I might have to hunt a copy down.

I loved playing ISS and ISS Deluxe on the SNES. Never tried the Mega Drive version... nor the oft-forgotten PS1 port.

Let's take a look!

I thought you were making a joke based on the moaning that usually goes on when I run a poll in off topic.

If you weren’t joking then I didn’t use Wikipedia because I wanted to do a list from memory. If I have to Wiki it, then I figure it can’t have been one of my absolute favourites.

I am disturbed by the lack of love for Rocket Knight Adventures.

Rocket knight is an awesome game IronHide so you have some support there from me , just sad to see I missed the deadline. The megadrive is one of my most favourite machines, but this is at least an interesting read for me.
