EDGE - Sega might just be the most playful big publisher around. From Virtua Fighter Kids’ weirdly proportioned, funhouse mirror battlers and grapplers to Phantasy Star Online’s surprise seasonal themes; from Typing Of The Dead to the greatest freebie in videogame history, Christmas Nights Into Dreams, the company isn’t afraid to stretch and subvert its major properties for the sake of a few giggles. It’s also unafraid to let its developers take big names and transplant them into other genres. Remember Sonic The Fighters? Probably best not to, actually.
