The official Retro Core / Battle of the Ports thread


A loved Gain Ground back in 1990 on the Mega Drive. I’m surprised it’s taken me 205 show to finally get around to covering it.


Gain Ground is a great game. I recommend it to anyone looking for something other than a platformer, shmup or beat ‘em up. Same goes for Soldiers of Fortune


It sure is. It’s one of those games you look at and think “That’s so dull” but once you start playing it you become hooked.


That’s so true. I remember looking at the Genesis box on the shelf at EB and being like, “Man, that has to suck.” When I finally played it I was like “Wow! This is awesome!”

Similar in that way to Rambo III on Sega Genesis. Another game I ignored til a friend raved about it.


I don’t think I’ve ever played Rambo lll on the MD. I should give it a try.
