The lights are on
Many developers have that single game which stands out from every other title in their lineage. It's not necessarily because it's remarkably good or bad, sometimes it's because it's an odd duckling. A duckling wearing a bright yellow jumpsuit and clown makeup. McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure by Treasure (Ikaruga, Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Heady, Sin & Punishement) features Ronald McDonald prancing around a whimsical world murdering tiny gnomes and giant bipedal tomatoes with magical death dust. This colorful gem has always stuck out in my head as a good example of an underrated game. Thankfully, we've captured my fellow Game Informer editors berating my childhood taste for quality in the latest Replay.
Come along with Jeff Cork, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we play this totally not terrible Sega Genesis platformer.

I was mad for a moment when I didn't see a new replay on the main page.
CURSE YOU MCDONALDS
Exactly why I don't eat at McDonalds to crazy for me and clowns freaking hate clowns.
It's really weird that when I woke up this morning and my leg started cramping like I was being stabbed, the only thing on my mind was coming here to watch the new replay.
By the way,didn't you guys say on the Mario Party 3 one that another Overblood replay was coming. If so, I can't wait for that.
Great replay. My favorite replays have all been hosted by Dan or Tim. Also, is it just me or did this game remind anyone else of the 16bit Mega Man games? There were only, like one or two (7 definitely was), but the graphics and levels totally reminded me of those. The part with Hamburglar brought me back to this hidden rooms where you'd meet Protoman and he'd give you some bit of useless information (only Protoman didn't look like a shady drug dealer).
Excellent and funny episode as always. Ronald was pretty much bullying innocent animals for some gold. The game didn't look half-bad.
The second game, M.C. Kids.... well, the huge FU was the best part of that game.
Streets of Rage Trilogy Super Replay!!!!
Ha, the very end was genius xD
LOL chicken tenders.
Hahahahaha loved the limbo joke at the end btw. Super Replay of McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure!! granted, it would only take like, 40 minutes, but totally awesome!
Wow this game looks so old and stupid!
Gex: Enter the Gecko replay next...or Overblood :D
Lolz .. . Honestly, I'm with you Tim.
I played both of these games when I was kid...I thought McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure was really cool...
Mckids is classic. Haha, takes me back...
Why make a McDonald's game that doesn't even involve McDonald's? I'd sure as hell play a McDonald's time management game.
Nice Mc Donald theme for this week. Treasure land looked pretty good, but the other game was pretty horrible. Also, I love to see you guys die lol.
