The rather unfortunately named STD flogs their line of accessories... ...while Sega reveals CD-X - a portable Genesis/Sega CD combo unit.

A little too real.
World Series Baseball
16 megabits

World Series Baseball features a new "in the batter's box" view, and (unlike Tommy Lasorda Baseball, their previous effort) real MLB teams and player stats.

Oddly, baseball is the one sport where Electronic Arts never really seemed to be able to dominate in the 16-bit era, so Sega's title was received all the more warmly by the gaming press of the day.

"World Series Baseball is one of the better baseball games out there with great control, excellent voices, and plenty of teams to choose from!"
- Mike Weigand, EGM May 1994

Yet more basketball action from EA...
NBA Showdown
Electronic Arts
16 megabits

EA's latest basketball title for the Genesis, featuring a full NBA license and players' signature moves.

"NBA showdown has all the ingredients of a promising title, however, the action is very choppy, robbing this one of the fluidity and game play."
- Mike Weigand, EGM May 1994

...and still more from Sega.
NBA Action '94
16 megabits

I suppose the most interesting feature in NBA Action '94 would have to be the inclusion of colour commentary by Marv Albert...

"NBA Action '94 offers a different perspective on the court, but the constant scrolling and changing perspective make things confusing."
- Mike Weigand, EGM April 1994

"It's been one of those days..."
Third World War
Extreme Entertainment Group

If you've ever felt the desire to launch a massive nuclear strike, Extreme's Sega CD strategy title Third World War could be just what you've been looking for...

"This one involves a lot of statistics and is geared more toward strategy lovers than anyone else."
- Mike Weigand, EGM May 1994

You want a 16-bit Wii?
Liberty Or Death
16 megabits

Taking a momentary break from heavy-duty strategy games based on Japanese history, Koei decided to release Liberty Or Death... which is a heavy-duty strategy game based on American history...

"You get total control over the troops, money allocation, and territory control. This is a great time warp back to the early days of American history. It's worth a look."
- Danyon Carpenter, EGM May 1994

16 megabits

Cyberpunk games were generally few and far between on the Genesis, but Shadowrun (based on the popular FASA pen-and-paper RPG) helped to fill this void upon its release.

"This one is pretty engrossing, with excellent overhead action sequences, and plenty of areas to explore. Fans of the role-playing system will definitely want this."
- Mike Weigand, EGM June 1994

Journey to the centre of the Earth!
8 megabits

Subterrania was developed by Zyrinx, the company responsible for Red Zone, and features action of a similarly freakishly-challenging nature...

"Is Subterrania just another shooter? Nope. Is Subterrania a strategy game? Nope. Is Subterrania a sci-fi recon mission? Nope. Well then... what is it? It's all of those things and, it does them all very, very well."
- Kid Fan, GameFan April 1994

"Don't expect to sit down and finish this one in one sitting, it's too involved for that. Some may find the deliberate pace maddening; but if you like strategy games in the vein of Choplifter, then you may want to check this one out."
- Sushi-X, EGM April 1994

Not to be confused with World Championship Soccer...
Champions World Class Soccer
8 megabits

Although it was published by Acclaim, Champions World Class Soccer was actually developed by Park Place Productions, the people who brought you the original Jon Madden Football.

"Having a game with commentary in several languages is an interesting option that actually adds atmosphere."
- Mike Weigand, EGM June 1994
