Did the US get MS releases of things like:

 

Power Strike II (Very different to Game Gear version) No. We got the original, but it was mail order only and pretty rare today.

 

Masters Of Combat No

 

Prince Of Persia No

 

Buggy Run No

 

Light Phaser version of:Assault City No. We didn't get either version

 

Fire And Forget II No

 

MK II No

 

Micro Machines No

 

Road Rash No

 

T2:Arcade Game No

 

 

Mind you, you guys had:

 

 

King's Quest:Quest For The Crown Never played it

 

Alf Want it, but heard it's terrible

 

Golden Axe warrior Great game, Wikipedia says it was released in the UK

 

Few others did you not?

I wasn't aware of any other US exclusives, but Wikipedia says Casino Games, Galaxy Force, Great Ice Hockey and Monopoly did not come out in the UK. Also I hear our version of Captain Silver had stuff cut out and is not as good. Some of the above UK games mentioned did appear as Game Gear titles.

I've seen Golden Axe warrior on Game Gear here in UK, but not Master System, might be a rarer title or just something i missed at the time. It was unfairly slagged off (along with MS Golden Axe) in the RetroGamer Magazine feature on Golden Axe i read some months ago, but then the comments in features like these never seem to tie-up with the review scores awarded from UK Press at the time (Strider II, Tiertex, another, well recieved by likes of Zero+Raze on the ST, YS on the Spectrum..it is an awful title, but when a feature claimed it was reviewed poorly at release, it's just not an accurate historical feature...) Wowza seems it's pretty slim pickings if your a US Master system collector, looks like UK for once got the lions share of the software.

I think you might be confusing that with Ax Battler: A Legend Of Golden Axe on Game Gear. Golden Axe Warrior was an SMS exclusive.

Your right i bloody was... :)

 

 

How many spin off's were there for Golden Axe?

 

So the SMS exclusive was an RPG?

 

Blimey, people here in UK moan about Sony milking franchises, but Sega seem no stranger to that game either...

 

Some awful titles as a result (cough, Cyber Shinobi...etc).

As far as spin offs go, I'm only aware of Ax Battler on the Game Gear and Golden Axe Warrior (plays like a good zelda rip off) on the SMS. There was also a one on one fighter in the arcade and on Saturn I believe.

Yeah, it was essentially Sega's version of The Legend Of Zelda. It's actually pretty good, although it's very rare.

The spin-offs of Golden Axe include Golden Axe Warrior, Ax Battler: A Legend Of Golden Axe, Golden Axe - The Duel, and Golden Axe: Beast Rider (most people say spin-off, but some say main series).
