Atari - For JAGUAR
Tempest 2000
Shooter | 16 MB
Release: Mar 1994
testimage

For players waiting for a solid reason to pick up a new Atari Jaguar, this is it. Tempest 2000 is a superb shooter. It may be the best 3-D game out so far! Atari has nabbed a dusty arcade title from over a decade ago and rejuvenated it with the power of 64-Bit. The vector graphics and smooth animations are stunning, the techno music kicks butt, and Tempest has tons of options and modes to keep players entertained. Our only complaint is the lack of a classic paddle controller for fine-tuned controls. Aside from that, we're confident Tempest 2000 will prove a system seller for the Jag.

Imagitec - For JAGUAR
Raiden
Scrolling Shooter | 24 MB
Release: Dec 1993
testimage

Say hello to the ultimate arcade game conversion. Raiden, the shoot-em-up classic from the arcades, is a perfect dupe for Jaguar This cart sounds and looks totally identical to the original. You take control of a fighter plane flying over enemy territory, shooting down foe aircraft, blasting apart tanks, and avoiding missiles. Raiden showcases parallax scrolling and engaging audio quality, with no slow down despite massive objects on-screen. Simply put, no other system is capable of this. What's the downside? This isn't 1991! We're left still waiting for those true 64-Bit games on the Jag, as this sure ain't it.

AtD - For JAGUAR
Cybermorph
3-D Shooter | 24 MB
Release: Nov 1993
testimage

The pack-in game for the brand-new Atari Jaguar is Cybermorph, a mission-based shooter title developed by ATD. Is the 64-Bit Revolution all its cracked up to be? Yes, ...and also no. While other mags may gush over this spaceship adventure, we at PPM try to present the full picture. There's lots to appreciate in Cybermorph: Above all its vivid graphics and seemingly unlimited, expansive levels. In some areas it excels, especially for a cart-based home console. We only hope that the true 64-Bit Revolution is a larger leap than this as we move into 1994. We explore this title more in-depth in our highlight Spotlight coverage (Coming Soon).

Atari - For JAGUAR
Crescent Galaxy
Scrolling Shooter | 24 MB
Release: Nov 1993
testimage

Corporal Trevor McFur of the Circle Reserve Core, with friend Cutter the Lynx, have returned from a reconnaissance mission only to find the galaxy in some desperate need of saving from a hive of ruthless critters! Spanning nine zany levels, the Jag unleashes lifelike 3-D rendering as the player module winds through imaginative planetary objects and shoots down the oddest of foes (Turbo rats!). Thankfully no slowdown in sight, but a stark lack of music and limited sound is off-putting. To our disappointment, Crescent's gameplay is subpar. Less so R-Type and Gradius than the simplicity of Defender.
