  • Slayer - Auch das Spielsystem wirkt trivial underinnert eher an einen, zwargrafisch beeindruckend umgesetzten, doch mißglückten Versuch, ein Action-Rollenspiel zu fabrizieren, das in einer völlig stumpfsinnigen und unmotivierenden Monsterjagd ausartet.
  • D - Leider entpuppt sich das eigentliche Spiel, trotz der zwei vollbepackten CDs, als ein ziemlich kurzer Horrortrip. Das Zeitlimit ist von vorneherein auf zwei Stunden gesetzt, und die Aufgaben sind spätestens beim zweiten Anlauf einfach zu bewältigen.
  • Slam N Jam - Die vielen Features tragen ein Zusätzliches zum Spielspaß bei. Ich hätte mir vielleicht noch die Möglichkeit gewünscht, eigene Spieler zu kreieren. Ansonsten bietet Slam'n Jam’95 alles, was sich ein Basketball Fan erofft.
