Road Blaster $1.99 from $4.99.




This was a great game. Haven't tried this version of it.
Edit: it's just as frustrating as I remembered it being. Plays pretty well. A few little control quirks. You can hold the steering wheel the direction you know you'll have to. You have to be fairly precise with hitting the gas and break though.
I'm not sure I'd suggest it to a lot of people. I'm enjoying it though.

Arrg. I loved (and still have) this game on the Sega CD, but when I learned the intro song for this changed, it's been a tough sale. I know it's a small thing, but nostalgia is a big part of getting these old games, and without that it just seems off.

Maybe the rest of it makes up for that?

Maybe. It's pretty close to the same game. Can't recall if the music is the same. The rest of the game pretty much is. I'd be willing to bet you paid more than $2 for the Sega CD version though.

Very much. I always liked it more. It's a full motion video, video game. The general concept is the same as DL.

Awesome. Finally a sale! Always wanted these anime drawn FMV games. Wish the HD version was cheaper.

Yeah. SD was $.99 at launch. I think HD was $1.99. First sale in a year on these. Might be a while before we see another. If anyone's interested, now would probably be a good time to pick this up.
