Earthworm Jim 2 -- Playmates

Earthworm Jim makes his way off the 16-bitters to the Saturn. I couldn't be happier. Too bad this game doesn't quite measure up. Graphics and sounds were all improved over the carts and all of the clever original levels (including Puppy Love, my favorite) are here. The problem lies in gameplay. It's not even something I can put my finger on. It just feels different and wrong which severely hampered my enjoyment of this game. Oh well, I still have the Genesis version I guess.
