Youtube: Jaguar promo videos

by on November 14, 2007

I stumbled across these awesome promo videos for Atari’s Jaguar recently – they’re from 1994, and basically show you almost every game destined to come out on the system. Here they are: one, two, three, four, and five. Five is particularly interesting because it shows Fight For Life, the really genuinely awful Virtua Fighter-alike, and the genuinely awesome Burn Out, a motorcycle racing game. Check out that awesome 2D speed! The fantastic Amiga demoscene soundtrack! Whenever people tell me all Jaguar games sucked, I point them to this – not that they could ever play it anyway. Burn Out, Power Drive Rally (it’s a tough game, but not nearly as hard as this guy makes it look), and Tempest 2000 of course, and the old pixel-based VLM. So for those who missed out on this console entirely, you should be able to get a good idea of the cart-based games for the system anyway…

For some extra humor, check out this comparison of the Sega CD and unreleased Jag CD versions of Soul Star. Then look at the comments to watch people continue to debate whether the Jaguar was 64 bit, whether Sega sucks, and which one is better. Amazing. How do people remember these arguments anymore? It’s like the Hatfields and McCoys.
