MASTER SYSTEM (1987-1991)
They ruled the arcades and now they enter the home market for the first time
Unbelievable but true, Mortal Kombat was released for the Master system.....in Europe.
1986, I saw some awesome arcade games at the time. Games like Space
Harrier and Out Run blew me away back then with their amazing 3Dgraphics
and I started to become a SEGA fan. Now out comes this new game
system BY SEGA, a 8-bit machine released by the Toy company Irwin in 1987
that looked even better than the 8-bit
Nintendo (at least on the screen shots). I was VERY disappointed
to find weak arcade translations of After Burner, Space Harrier, and many
others which often bored quickly. Sega (much like Atari) got hammered
by new comer Nintendo and there NES game machine.
*Actually stronger than the 8-bit NES.
*Some units have built in games.
*European games are fully compatible and some are really good.
*Awful sound capibilites
*To pause your game you need to press a button on the system itself.
*Lack of most thrid party support thanks to a Nintendo clause.
