This is one of my favorite games of all time. The cart also contains the best home version of the arcade-standard Tempest. What makes both T2000 and the arcade version on this cart so great is the controls. You would think that a game designed to use a rotational control would suffer when played with a dpad, but the game designer made the controls so precise you can spin all the way around a level and land on the exact segment you need to in order to grab a powerup or shoot an enemy before they reach the rim. The visuals and sound are also a masterpiece that still hold up after all these years.

Probably the best game ever released for the Jaguar, both in gameplay and in technical prowess. It's a must-have for any Jaguar owner.
