Ah yes. Speaking of Bram Stoker's Dracula......

The Master System/Game Gear/NES games are mostly the same. The SNES version is like the Mega Drive version but harder and I think the Amiga version is like the Mega CD.

The Mega Drive version is the best I think. It's the only one I've finished. The Master System/NES version is OK, but has some really bad music.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein on the Mega Drive is also different to the Mega CD game. As is The Terminator, The Adventures of Batman & Robin, Jurassic Park....

OK, so the NES version looks like total crap.  The SMS and MD version look to be the same game but with better graphics on the MD.  The SNES version is different but I can't say I'm impressed with the game.  The MegaCD is different from the other Sega versions and looks really nice.

The NES game IS crap. Master System version has a lot of slowdown. SNES game is way too hard. Mega Drive is just "meh".

The Mega CD Terminator however is one of my favourite games. I really, really like that game.

Those TMNT games are very different indeed.  The SNES game looks like the better game of the two.

After watching these videos, I have to say that I like the Genesis/MD version the most because it follows the movie more closely and it also allows the player to play as a megazord, something the SNES version does not have.

Here is Strider for the NES and Mega Drive/Genesis.  The games are based on the same central idea, but the execution is different.  Reportedly, the NES version has more responsive controls, but suffers from worse hit detection than the Mega Drive/Genesis version, which also looks nicer with its more detailed sprites.  I think the NES version has better sound effects, but the music is a toss-up.

Nes version was a massive let down for me when I first played it. I have learned to appreciate it.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I love Strider on the NES  :113:
I can understand how people would be turned off if they were expecting the arcade game, but as it's own stand-alone game it's an absolute classic!
