WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game Review (Sega Genesis)
It’s no secret that wrestling video games didn’t hit their stride until the Nintendo 64, and to a lesser extent, the Sony PlayStation. However, before those systems were even a thought inside my youngster brain, I was happily playing wrestling games like Nintendo’s own Pro Wrestling, WCW World Championship Wrestling, WWF Royal Rumble, and Saturday Night Slam Masters.

It was grueling to replay each game, but now I can proudly present you the Top 20 Sonic the Hedgehog Zones

This is a great zone for many reasons. First, it has an incredibly upbeat song worthy of any Sonic game; however, the jungle setting is its real strength. Sega was able to include many neat obstacles for Sonic to overcome in this zone, such as rolling logs, vines, and even waterfalls. My favourite aspect of this Zone is climbing the gigantic waterfall in Act 2. It’s a standout stage because it offers great platforming during your vertical ascent. Yes, this is a change of pace for Sonic, but the design is honestly a lot of fun and challenging, not to mention the cool waterfall backdrop. Sonic even fights Robotnik high above the jungle, which is also a nice touch. Read more
