Don't know what to make of this yet.
The paltforming sections are far too simple, skateboarding sections are pretty boring, card matching is pure luck, and then....
Those sliding puzzles are infuriating!!!! I just broke an SMS pad after throwing it against the wall trying to solve the first one (I'm guessing there's more too). 16 attempts and no matter what I did the last two pieces were always the wrong way round .
Then I pressed exit thinking it would finish the game to find I was up against the first boss, only my pad was broke so I couldn't jump or fire!!!
I'll dig another pad out and give it another go later, I'm skipping the sliding puzzle though, don't have enough pads for those things ;D.
They're quite possible, I finish them in about five minutes. They get harder as the game progresses, though. The card matching isn't luck. You just go straight across the rows, memorizing who you pick up and then you'll finish it with 1 flip left. Now for my thoughts on this game:
First off, the graphics blow the NES version out of the water, a lot more polished. The music, however, is damn annoying. It's not a bad song, it's just the fact that the fecker DOESNT STOP PLAYING that gets to me. You hear the damn thing everywhere. If you think the platforming is simple, wait until you get to the ice level. Holy shite. That takes some skill. The challenge is pretty much the same, but one thing I noticed is the gameplay is a lot more polished in this version of the game. Bart jumps much better. In the NES version, since you also had to use both buttons to launch him far enough, it would cause you to run a bit when you landed, so you have to be ready to quickly move the other way so you don't fall off. In this version, however, Bart will only run if you jump and HOLD it for a time and then hit over. So, when you use the double-button jump he hits the platform solidly and you're good to go. Otherwise it's essentially the same game. I think I'm leaning more towards this version. The only fault is the music in my eyes.
It was 1998 my father was in the hospital waiting for a lung transplant and that is where i got my genesis/segacd i loved the way sega did games nothing can compare to the. genesis and what it did also my father died in the hospital waiting for his transplant

So, I've finished this now and I still don't think it's a great game. I stick with what I said earlier about the platforming sections, other than one particular bit in the first ice level they are really easy and simple. The mini games seem kind of pointless and the bosses are FAR too simple, especially the Egypt boss.
That said, I have enjoyed playing it, mainly due to the high score club.
This game is okay. If you're playing it on an NTSC console make sure you add a 50/60Hz switch and set it to 50Hz! This game will crash randomly in 60Hz!
Having said that, this game is a lot easier compared to the NES version. The coffins maze is a lot easier this time around. They seem to have omitted a level. I believe it's Hollywood Part 3 (I can't remember for sure). Also, I do agree the music continuously playing get's old. And what is with the shitty super jump controls? Ugh.
Another classic mistake of earlier games that could have been good if it didn't have awkward or sloppy controls.
