I would be shocked if the Jag CD could actually handle Road Rash up to par of 3DO.. I think the hardware had too many flaws and limitations to really allow it.. and I think RAM or the way the Jag CD handles RAM would have nixed the chance alone..?
It might have to be written like a Myst point and click, and only have about 10 locations, but that's the same thing, right? And using a screen to display a picture and move a pointer... that's maximizing the available hardware, right?
haha. reminds me of this old gem that was coming to the Jag back in the day from DKG
I bought one when they eventually went down to ~200 or so bucks, right before or around the time PS1 came out in 95 and had a ton of fun with it. At the time, the 3DO's version of Madden completely blew every other version out of the water.. first couple PS1 versions were terrible in comparison. Road Rash, Wing Commander, Street Fighter II, Samurai Shodown, FIFA, Muhammad Ali's Boxing, Blade Force, etc really showed off its power at the time and were overall very fun.. I even liked some of the silly FMV shooting games like Mad Dogg and that Police Force or whatever it was called and places like Wal Mart were HEAVILY discounting the games, so it was a good deal at the time.. got many of my games for about 5 bucks each... however, nowadays unfortunately most of those haven't aged well.. but I still keep the system for one game... Return Fire.. yeah it's also on PS1, but it's also slightly worse on that system, PLUS 3DO has the Maps of Death expansion.. such a great party game.
Kasumi Ninja is pretty terrible.. but in a good sort of way and has a sort of charm to it.. but maybe it's nostalgia too, since it was one the earlier games I bought for the system back in the mid 90's. Probably my favorite fighter on the Jag, and i'd play it ANY day over Fight for Life, Double Dragon V or Dragon. Ultra Vortek may be a better game technically, but I had more fun with Kasumi over the years.
