Sega Master System / Mark III / Game Gear
One of the earlier coin-op conversions for the Master System, this puts you at the controls of a super-powered F-14, pitted against myriad airborne and ground-based forces, all trying to blow you away - so you've got to give as good as you get!
The problem here lies with the original arcade machine - take away the stunning graphics and the thumping soundtrack, and you're left with a very simple, aim and fire blast, which is the feeling this version gives - graphically very plain, and the sound falls into the realms of 'arrgh'! The whole thing is very slow too, and makes this overall a very dull, unplayable game. Only take a look if you're a real Afterburner nut.
