A website listing magazine contents:

http://www.kultpower.de/external_frameset.php3?site=%2Fvideogames_datenbank.php3...

Master System 41%
Hersteller: US Gold
Zirka-Preis: 90 DM

Grafik: 59%
Musik: 52%
Soundeffekte: 31%

So I guess we're not missing anything great, but it means that they had a prototype of this game at some point.

Nice issue. ^ ^

They reviewed Streets of Rage II for MD but used a Prototype or Beta for the review so it only got 78/100 :-\

Back on topic: That definitly looks like a SMS game. They got three screenshots. I'll do a scan of that review later on and I could also translate the text.

Awesome, Christus! I'm looking forward to reading your translation.

If my high-school German class hasn't failed me, the review dismisses it as a boring game with little variation in game play - you just keep shooting the same gangsters over and over with a lame bonus level here and there to break up the monotony. The reviewer also complains of the game trivializing the content of the movie, but that's to be expected, isn't it? He must be a Godfather fan.

I wonder how close to a finished product the reviewed copy was. I remember playing a beta of Shinobi III (I think it was called Super Shinobi II) that looked very close to the final game but the beta lacked the many gameplay tweaks that were in the final and it was a lot less fun to play. The horseback sequence just goes on forever in the beta version.
