Dirt Racer, Super Nintendo

Dirt Racer is a racing game for the Super Nintendo that uses the Super FX chip to render the 3D graphics, and it has the distinction of being by far the worst game to use Argonaut‘s famous co-processor. The game was developed by Motivetime and published by Elite Systems in 1995.

Dirt Trax FX, Super Nintendo

Dirt Trax FX is a motocross racing game developed by Sculptured Software and published by Acclaim Entertainment for the Super Nintendo in 1995. It uses the Super FX chip inside the cartridge to power the 3D course graphics. In spite of the extra processing power, Dirt Trax FX is a fairly average motocross racing game, in my opinion.

Doom, Super Nintendo

The Super Nintendo conversion of id Software‘s classic Doom was developed by Sculptured Software and published by Williams Electronics in 1995. It uses the Super FX chip to help render the 3D graphics, but in truth: even with the extra processing power it’s a pretty poor effort.

Judge Dredd, Super Nintendo

Having been a 2000AD reader since the very first issue I’ve always been sceptical about Judge Dredd games, films, and other third-party uses of the character, mostly because they’ve all been failures. Failing to capture the spirit and tone of the original comic.

This Judge Dredd game is based on the 1995 film of the same name – the one starring Sylvester Stallone and directed by Danny Cannon. I’ve previously avoided it until now, having been one of those who went to see the film when it first came out and being unimpressed by it. To be honest: ever since they announced Stallone as Judge Dredd I’ve been disappointed by the process of bringing one of my favourite comic characters to the big screen. Of all the actors they could’ve chosen to play Judge Dredd: they chose one of my least favourite actors of all-time. So my hopes for this video game were low to begin with.
