@morcar: i liked it, but as you say, it was impossible to play with joysticks with microswitches. But with a TAC-2 you could jump without problem.

plus. never buy a movie tie-in, or a franchise deal. MacDonalds Land anyone?
i agree 100 on Rise of the Robots, but how could you say that about McDonaldland - It was one of my favourite games on my mate`s NES.

Microcosm was one of the worst games I've played on Amiga. The graphics were brilliant and the intro was incredibly fun in a B-movie Robocop-ish kind of way, but the game? Holy cr*p that was bad.

I haven't had a chance to try most of those games listed, but out of the ones I still have sitting around, "Turbo Outrun" and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" were two stinkers that I couldn't play more than five minutes with, without giving up. I also kinda have to agree with Hoi. I played the AGA version, and although pretty to look at, it was annoying as hell to get through the levels with my limited platformer skill set. Jump, miss, die. Jump, miss, die.

With Microcosm I think they literally put all their effort into the FMV side, thus neglecting gameplay to the detriment off all CD32 users who bought it thinking it was like that in-game.

But nope!!

Seriously though, if you've never played them, try Cool World and Akira. Both of these crimes against videogames should be played by everyone at least once, if only to realise how good we got it

Let's see worst hmm...

MindWalker (if it weren't for the 3D) and the Surgeon (it's like the game of operation with a hellicious scream when the patient wakes up and dies)...

The most worst games I ever played are :

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, after the third round you couldn't win even on the easiest level
Dangerous Streets, unplayable
Master Axe, problems with hitting and kicking the opponent.

On the other hand: Rise of the Robots is a great game when you use a 68030 to play the game.

Even with an 040 it sucked big time.

I've played Rise of the Robots quite much against a friend of mine. Fond memories.
But then again, it was my first fighting game, it was a demo version and I had never heard of it before, just tried to get the hang of this new type of game.

Anyway it certainly cannot be the worst game, maybe the most disappointing, but certainly not the worst.

I think Dangerous Streets and Operation Clean Street must have been the same game!
Maybe they changed the title for europe for some reason?

Here are some Amiga magazines who has reviewed the Rise of the robots game:

http://amr.abime.net/amr_search.php?...obots&mag_id=0

The scores are mixed. That is the reason why I play the game first before I give my opion about it.

I think CU Amiga is quite right with their 80% score

Rise of the Robots certainly ranks up there, in part because it took so damn long to load, for so little gameplay.

There were plenty of other forgettable games, but they at least had the common decency to only take up 1 or 2 disks and load up pretty quick

Operation Clean Streets ! I love me some Operation Clean Streets! Watch out for that bitch by the docks though, she looks good but will stick you with her dagger!

LOL, really, that game hurt me, and changed me forever, in a bad way. WORST GAME EVER - THE QUESTION IS RESOLVED...
