Kriss Kross, Make Your Own Music Video -- Sony Imagesoft

It's your turn to be veejay to one of the freshest groups around in Kriss Kross, Make Your Own Music Video for play on the Sega CD. Edit live video clips and mix them with a large variety of special effects to create your own music videos and score big with the crowds.

Jump! Jump! No don't, the CD will skip. Cool FX, but lame interaction. I don't know about you but I can't watch four TV's at once and call it fun. Better off as a virtual VCR Disc, Kriss Kross will stay in my car stereo.

Oh please! Not another non-interactive game for the Sega-CD. There's nothing I would want to do more than to watch three screens at the same time and try to compose a video to any one of three--count'em, three--songs. The digitized graphics are well done. Music is fine if you don't mind listening to three different songs. There is virtually no game play besides pushing a button. I'm sorry but this game got boring quick. Nice attempt but no good!

Well, I don't know what category you would place this under, but I suppose in a way it could be considered a puzzle game. The best part of the game though was the music. I wasn't to impressed with the actual "video editing" that was supposed to be going on. In short I became bored with this title pretty fast. Let's face it, this is a nice idea, but the graphics capabilities of the machine are the real drawback to the game.

Interesting concept. While I found that gameplay itself quickly became a formula game of memory, this title scores with me for originality. While I don't think this first attempt was quite there yet, I definitely believe more development along these lines could really lead to something brilliant.
