A few weeks ago, I was chatting with my fiancée and her sister about retro video games. During that conversation, they started bringing up some of the bargain bin games that their mother used to buy them. One of those game was McDonald’s Treasure Land Adventures on the Sega Genesis. I knew that McDonald’s had a game floating around, but I didn’t think much of it.
This past weekend, I decided to try the game out for myself. I went into it thinking it was a game that I would put down after five minutes, but boy was I wrong. When the game booted up, I was surprised to see that the company appropriately named Treasure (Gunstar Heroes, Sin and Punishment, Guardian Heroes, Radiant Silver Gun, Ikaruga, etc) were the ones who made the game.
The game seemed like your typical platformer right out of the gate. The more I played the game, the more addicting it got.
This was supposed to be a mascot game, shameless marketing, and a cheap cash grab. I didn’t expect the game to be so damn good! Seriously, this game had no business being as good as it is. This game is fantastic, and the soundtrack definitely SLAPS!
Totally random rambling/review, but I just had to let y’all know this was a thing.
