In the 1990s, Mortal Kombat became a global phenomenon, spawning movies, albums of confrontational techno and even a live action tour. As with anything successful, lots of games wanted to hop on the bandwagon and grab some of that blood-soaked cash for themselves.

I was one of those rare kids that actually had an Atari Jaguar, with Kasumi Ninja. Needless to say not only did Kasumi Ninja suck, but the Jaguar was piece of crap as well.

I had Kasumi Ninja as well. Never got to play AvP on it though 😞

Aliens Vs Predator was really a good game. I played it last weekend. I was in retro mode. The game is still really good even today. The Jaguar problem was that it had complicated architecture and it didn't have the development community's support to get more out of it.

I'm ashamed to admit that own Kasumi Ninja and Way Of The Warrior.

That was the one game that made me buy a 3do. At the time, The Way Of The Warrior was the best looking game that I had ever seen. I do have fond memories of the 3do. I still have it and the various different models that came out.
