I could go on listing it's failings but would just be cruel to point out how pointless this was....suppose if they'd made it backwards compatible to work with all those old ET carts it could have been worse. Frankly the thing was pointless it should have been released as the Panther 2 years earlier to give us an affordable western neo geo instead of overcooking it to launch with little to no games that showed off its superb handling of 2d to the fullest when everyone was jumping ship to 3d. People that pay the silly asking price today to maintain a toe in the jaguar gaming pool need friends prepared to make an intervention. Kept a Jaguar boxed for years and to be honest forgot about the thing. They sold them for super low prices at one point so couldn't even be bothered to get it out of the loft to get rid of it. Sold it last year for £150 with Cybermorph. i can categorically state that it was the worst console I have bought. Tempest 2K was probably it's only game of note I really enjoyed. Doom was OK I guess but better on PC and Alien Vs Predator was terrible IIRC framerate was horrible although it looked OK. Can't think of anything else worth playing on the system. I did think about getting Fight For Life at one point but then just decided to ditch the system. No doubt collectors will collect because well not sure why curio? Ataris last console? Not sure.... Let's face it this wasn't the same Atari that brought the 2600 to the world. It's a shame they went out on this. I've recently been playing Tempest 4K on the PC and it's great. Brings back memories of my time with the Jag. Worth picking up if you were a fan of Tempest 2K.... 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
