Back to the Future 2 - more great action and humour from the time travelling duo none if you can keep up with the plot...
Back to the Future 3 - Erm... some of the game over screens made me chuckle? Made up of short frustrating levels, high difficulty due to poor level design.
Barbarian - Great two-player mode, good voiceover, intuitive varied moves. Poor graphics, severely limited one player mode.
Gauntlet 2 - Many levels and fun gameplay No save option
Ghostbusters 2 - good funny bits Not a patch on the first, ending was so bad
