Flatmate got this massive Sega compilation for his X Box and - after playing Sonic and Golden Axe (naturally), we gave Ristar a go. Nobody had played it before, but it was freakin' awesome!

It's a platform game where you use your hands to grab, climb and kill enemies. The graphics and animation are great, the control is fluid and intuitive and it has a nice 'dynamic'.

Anyone else played it?

ristar is wicked bro. easily one of the best games made in the megadrive's lifetime. ristar himself handles really tightly, nice difficulty curve as well which is something sonic always lacked.

Ristar deserved to be the true Sega Mascot. Not that Sonic fella. :x

Ristar was superb - if I remember correctly it came out quite late in the Mega Drive's life, and so perhaps didn't get the attention it deserved. An XBLA release would be good!

Had they made a sequel for the saturn it would have worked really well, this game would have been perfect for a 2D to 3D switch.

I too have just bought the Mega Drive Collection. Reminds me of Rayman a bit.

yeah, Ristar was simply insane. I was also crazy for Golden Axe and Streets of Rage - my all time Mega Drive's favourite game.
