I suspect Dangerous Streets was bundled with the CD32 because 1 on 1 beat 'em ups were huge business at the time. In still images (ie. back of the cd32 box) it didnt look terrible.
While there's a little logic there it falls apart once a person actually plays the game, and makes the cd32 appear sub-par to the megadrive/snes.
Did they think people were just going to look at the pictures and never discover what an abomination of a game it really is?

Customer). "Look at my awesome new cd32 console,.... check out these screenshots"
Friend). "Yeah, but the game sucks and looks bad once it moves"
Customer). "But,...b, bu,.... but the pictures....."
Friend). "Oh, my mistake"

The Final Gate
This gives a whole new meaning to 'shitty FMV game' Although FMV is really pushing it here...

I had a Mega/SegaCD and boy... those games weren't good for sure, but you should see Final Gate It's like a bad version of Sewer Shark... yes, like a bad version of a bad game

Eh? The C64 version is much better but the Amiga version is still OK, why is that the worst Amiga game you've ever seen?

Graphically it is not that bad, but the animation/frame rate is horrible (judging from the video)

For me the Amiga version of Jet Set Willy was truly awful. Slow, boring and buggier then London Zoo insect house!

Yes, the game could be better (C64 version is really cool) but worst game ever? I'm especially surprised to read that from a Polish dude, I assume he saw a few Polish games and I bet 99% of them are FAR worse than Street Sports Basketball (this is based on my very own experiences with Polish games)!

Yes, polish games are mostly bad but I still remember hard times when these games were developed. Not any big companies but few friends with Amiga computers.

I will always say... Rolling Thunder!

1) Small sprites in a small area.
2) Game running at almost 4 FPS.
3) Jerky scrolling.
4) Non-responsive controls.
5) All the enemies have all the same colors, while in the coin-op there were a lot of different ones.
6) No continues.
7) The music is a loop of the first notes of the original coin-op, making it horrible.

... can't believe there really was a magazine that pointed out almost all of this, yet still dared to say:"... we can pass over those things and say that it is a wonderful games that is going to set new stardards for the Amiga in the future!"...

BLEAH!!!!
