What better way to ring in the new year than a Replay of a Genesis classic? Sega boasted that their 16-bit system could capture the sheer arcade might of this mythological side-scrolling brawler. This short but tough game allowed players to transform into werewolves and lizardmen, and it's still cool as hell. Can we beat it in one sitting?

Join Dan Ryckert and I at the controls with Andrew Reiner adding in some colorful commentary on the memorable cartridge. This video contains interesting insight, close calls, a miraculous realization, and a weird joke involving Robert Carlyle and Patrick Stewart.
