Crack Down came out on almost everything OTHER than Nintendo. Commodore Amiga, Amstrad, ZX Spectrum, MS-DOS, Commodore 64, and so on. It eventually found its way to Wii Virtual Console in the late 2000’s, but only in PAL territories and Japan. I don’t think we lost out on that much by not getting it here, and to be frank (hi Frank) I don’t think I’ve missed out on that much by not owning a physical copy.
I wanted to give it a try for the show but I’ve walked away rather “meh” on the experience, given the tiny playfield, cumbersome controls and average at best sound effects. The music’s okay though. It saddens me to look at the arcade version and realize this is a port, because that version is SO MUCH BETTER in nearly every way. Genesis does do good home ports, but this isn’t one of them.
