Replay – The Jaguar Disaster

by Kyle Hilliard on Nov 25, 2016 at 02:00 PM

Released two years before the PlayStation, Atari's Jaguar console had a lot going for it: A cool name, Atari brand recognition, and technical superiority. It was rendering 64-bit graphics three years before the Nintendo 64. Its games, however, left a lot to be desired.

It had some quality software, like Aliens vs. Predator, good ports of Doom and Wolfenstein, and Iron Soldier (which we take a look at in the episode), but for the most part its library was underwhelming. Today on Replay, with our bellies thoroughly filled with turkey, Andrew Reiner, Dan Tack, Brian Shea, and I look at the games that brought the system down, whether it be poor Mortal Kombat impersonators, an awful Kart Racer, or an incredibly difficult Bruce Lee game.
