MAVERICK'S LIST OF ATARI JAGUAR VIDEOGAMES

What's this...  an Atari system with a name
instead of a number?  Is this the reason it
didn't sell and Atari went under???  Well,
without getting into that story let's just
say that the Jaguar is apparently destined
to be Atari's last foray into the home 
videogame market.  Developed in the early
90's, the Jag possessed some unique qualities 
at the time of its release.  The best thing 
about it today is that it is a dirt-cheap 
clearance item which offsets the limited
availability of any future games.  In fact,
for the price of your average Nintendo 64
GAME you can get a complete Jag SYSTEM
AND some of the best Jag games!

Some of my favorite titles are marked * and may
have a brief commentary as to their merits.

B M O GAME (MANUFACTURER)
---------------------------------------------------
X X X ALIEN VS. PREDATOR (ATARI)*
       well done first-person shooter in the style
       of DOOM except you can play as an alien,
       predator, or space marine.
X X . ATARI KARTS (ATARI)
X X . ATTACK OF THE MUTANT PENGUINS (ATARI)
X X . BATTLESPHERE (4PLAY)
X X . BREAKOUT 2000 (ATARI)
X X . BRUTAL SPORTS FOOTBALL (TELEGAMES)*
X X . BUBSY IN FRACTURED FURRY TALES (ATARI)
X X . CHECKERED FLAG (ATARI)
X X . CLUB DRIVE (ATARI)*
       though hated by some Jag gamers, this really
       isn't a bad lighthearted racing game (especially
       with two players.)
. X X CYBERMORPH (ATARI)
X X . DEFENDER 2000 (ATARI)
X X X DOOM (ATARI)*
       the classic PC alien blasting game comes
       to your TV.
X X . DOUBLE DRAGON V (WILLIAMS)
X X . DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY (ATARI)*
X X . EVOLUTION: DINO DUDES (ATARI)
X X . FEVER PITCH SOCCER (ATARI)
X X . FIGHT FOR LIFE (ATARI)
X X . FLASHBACK: THE QUEST FOR IDENTITY (TIERTEX LTD.)
X X . FLIP OUT (ATARI)
X X X HOVERSTRIKE (ATARI)
X X . I-WAR (ATARI)*
X X X IRON SOLDIER (ATARI)
X X . KASUMI NINJA (ATARI)
X X . MISSILE COMMAND 3D (ATARI)
X X . NBA JAM TOURNAMENT EDITION (ATARI)*
X X . PINBALL FANTASIES (COMPUTER WEST)*
       excellent graphics and great pinball feel
       with four different tables.
X X . PITFALL: THE MAYAN ADVENTURES (ACTIVISION)
X X . POWER DRIVE RALLY (TIME WARNER)*
X X . RAIDEN (ATARI)
X X . RAYMAN (UBI SOFT INT.)
X X . RUINER PINBALL (ATARI)
X X . SENSIBLE SOCCER (TELEGAMES)
X X . SUPER BURNOUT (ATARI)*
       motorcycle racing on several international
       tracks.  Nice graphics and complimentary
       racing music.
X X . SUPERCROSS 3D (ATARI)
X X . SYNDICATE (OCEAN)
X X . TEMPEST 2000 (ATARI)*
       touted as the top Jag title and it's hard
       to argue against it.  Techno style soundtrack,
       psychadelic graphics, and fast moving game
       play are sure to please.  Check your pulse
       if you don't find something to like here!
X X . THEME PARK (OCEAN)
X X . TOWERS II (ATARI)
X X X TREVOR MC FUR IN THE CRESCENT GALAXY (ATARI)
X X . TROY AIKMAN NFL FOOTBALL (WILLIAMS)
X X . ULTRA VORTEK (ATARI)
X X . VAL D'ISERE SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING (ATARI)*
X X . WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP (ATARI)
X X X WOLFENSTEIN 3D (ATARI)*
       what can I say...  I spent more hours stalking
       through Wolfenstein on the PC.  The only bad
       thing about the Jag title is I can't load my
       custom maps.  Nothing like blasting a few
       Nazi zombies to relieve the day's tension.
X X . ZERO 5 (ATARI)
X X . ZOOL 2 (ATARI)
X X . ZOOP (ATARI)
