    Could never work it out myself. Those games would not only show off the Saturn 2D might but also be a great advert of the Multi-Tap . Far more so than Victory Goal at the time IMO

    Yeah, the developer obviously went for the 60s comic book look. I can agree that it all looks a bit wooden and funny in some ways, but I still think it's impressive overall.

    It's very much a B-movie sort of game that's a bit dodgy in many ways, but has a certain degree of charm that makes it worth playing.

    I truly hated Victory Goal.

    It's baffling why Sega didn't bung Golden Axe The Revenge on the Saturn -- even if it were just a Japan exclusive. I'm sure it would have sold pretty well, seeing it had such a positive rep. Lots of people were still interested in beat 'em ups if they had advanced graphics.

    It might be just me but no Marvel-inspired video game should be going for a “B-Movie” aesthetic, and certainly not one based on Spider-Man IMO. The likes of Ditko and Kirby certainly didn’t do B-Movie aesthetic with their artwork and they are two of the all-time comicbook greats.

    As for it having charm, that’s debatable. It looks good in parts but very ropey in others.

    Capcom’s The Punisher wiped the floor with Sega Spider-Man back then and wipes the floor with it now.

    Yeah, Capcom's Punisher is a masterpiece that stands the test of time perfectly.

    I'm not saying Spider-Man from Sega is a great game, but it's not bad. When I mentioned "B-movie" I just meant it's all a bit clunky and unrefined, but still enjoyable.

    It's a shame that Capcom didn't make loads of super hero scrolling beat 'em ups.
