The Final Word game review
This exciting pinball game for the Sega Genesis is the sequel to renowned award-winning favorite, Devil's Crush. A variety of obstacles, bumpers and bonus rounds await to challenge even experienced pinball fans.
I am a big pinball fan, and enjoyed this game immensely. However, I don't think that it had nearly the realism of the Turbo Duo version. I would have loved for this game to have much better game play, and behave more like a real pinball game. A sequel to this title could very well be what you are looking for, but unless you are a pinball fanatic, wait before jumping into this style game.
Most likely one of the best pinball games for the Genesis. The main problem I had was that the action seemed to slow down a bit when too many things were on the screen. The music was okay. The ball seemed to float a little bit. Just didn't handle like a pinball machine. So far, nothing comes as close to the real thing as Devil's Crush for the TG-16.
One of the better pinball carts out there, and definitely the best pinball cart for the Genesis in my opinion. My favorite part of this game was the bonus levels. All of them gave a real good sense of depth with the balls. Also, play control was very responsive. All though the ball was a bit to light in my opinion, regardless of the game's story that the ball is really a crystal ball. It's hard to say whether the story is a result of the programming or visa-versa. But in any event, it looks like pinball has found a home since the demise of TTI. Keep up the work guys.
Dragon's Revenge carried over a lot of the style and feeling from the TG, but somehow the handling on the ball didn't quite make it. The ball was just a bit too light to feel realistic. Nice graphics and stimulating board design, but the gameplay needs improvement.
