Following the story of the original movie(and pretty accurately, I might add) you play as Woody the toy cowboy....and....um....just go watch the movie to get the rest of the story, leave me alone!
What's it all about?
It's a sidescrolling, driving, flying and even first person shoot...er, walking, action game. Playing as Woody, you'll make your way through various scenes from the movie in a variety of playing styles. There's the traditional 2D sidescrolling sections that will have you moving through, trying to accomplish certain objectives before you can exit, and even racing portions where you'll ride Rex, Roller Bob and even just haul butt on your own two feet to make it to the finish. There are also overheard and third person racing missions where you'll control RC as you tear your way around the house and city. To add even more to the above mentioned modes, there is also a flying portion where you and Buzz will attempt to catch up to the moving truck while dodging trees, street lights and traffic. Finally, and most shockingly, there's even a first person mode where you are searching, and trying to free squeeze toy aliens inside the claw machine!
Graphics - Amazing. If you didn't know any better, you'd swear it was a 32X game...it's that impressive. Each and every level is filled with jaw-dropping special effects and silky-smooth animation. The characters are huge, and gorgeously rendered with an amazing amount of color in them. Each new mode you encounter will continually blow you away, even more so than the last, with the level of detail and innovation in the graphics; this, folks, is the most graphically advanced Genesis game I have ever seen.Read more ›
Since this version of the game was released after the SNES game, there are some differences that were put in the game.
Some of these are:
The graphics are some of the best on the Genesis. Especially considering its limited color palliate.
The sounds and music aren't as great as the Super Nintendo had them turn out, also considering the limits, but they are still sounding pretty well on the hardware.
The gameplay is also pretty good, but it's always varied, although it's mostly a platform game.
However, the game is hard. Harder than the Super Nintendo game. The reason why and how is because of the new additions to some levels. The Claw has this annoying wire that hits you when you touch it. Really Inside the Claw Machine is an entirely different and more confusing maze. Nightmare Buzz moves slowly. And the list goes on. Things are still easier after beating it once, though.
The storyline is horribly written in the game. For example: "I'm so mad that I can't see where I'm going!" However, you'd just skip the storyline cutscenes anyway. What? We've all done it.
But overall, this is a good game for the Genesis library that you should probably own. Unless if you have a more superior version of the game, or at least, what you think is superior.

They just don't make movie based games like they used to. This is easily one of the greatest games of the Genesis' life cycle. The game isn't as difficult as I remember it. Read morePublished on October 17, 2013 by William B
