Jaguar in Action

Atari Jaguar Controller: It has tons of buttons but it was too big to hold. For it's time it was still innovative though.

Great Jaguar 64 Bit Games

The Jaguar has many fun video games but the ten that are listed below stand out for one reason or another. I hope you enjoy my selection of Atari Jaguar greats.

1. Double Dragon 5 (1995): This game has two fighters who must fight through levels with punches, kicks and special finishing moves called over kills. In this version of the game you can play tournament mode or quest mode instead of the traditional quest mode only. As usual in quest mode you can play two players at the same time and the moves are more improved in this game with more kicks.

2. Doom (1994): In this first person 3D fighting game you must shoot your way to victory by killing demons from Hell. This game is multiplayer ready. Your a Space Marine who battles Demons on a moon in mars. It is played from a first person perspective and it was first made popular on Personal Computer.

3. Atari Karts (1995): This game is a lot like Mario Kart. In this wacky racing game you gain power ups as you progress in this one or two player game. If you attack the other driver with a power up he drives backwards for a short period.

4. Raiden (1990): Raiden is a scrolling shooter game in which you use three weapons to destroy aliens that possess bombs and missiles. It is a single player game and it consists of eight stages of intense game play. The sound effects and musical score are outstanding in this shooter video game.

5. Super Burnout (1995): A 3D Super Motor cross game. 8 levels of tracks to compete on. You can get different cycles as you progress. You jump ramps and hills around every turn but, beware of other racers because a wreck is a split second away at all times.

6. NBA Jam (1994): This popular basketball game features the craziest slam dunks ever seen and the sound effects are outstanding. When you get blocked or dunked on you feel the shame in this game. Features tournament and career modes.

7. Hover Strike (1995): For this you must use missiles, rockets, bombs and lasers to fight past 30 3D levels. You must watch out for enemy hovercraft the entire game because they are constantly on your tail.

8. Club Drive (1994): Club Drive uses 3D and Polygon graphics to enhance the play of this single player racing game. Eight tracks to race on. The sound and graphics are awesome but it should have been a two player game.

9. Alien vs. Predator (1994): This game features great graphics and sound. The player can play as the Predator or as the Alien with different plots for each. Also, cut scenes are between each stage of the game.

10. Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1994): The game follows the film exactly. You play as Kung Fu master Bruce Lee and you must fight past enemies using all your skills and any weapons you find along the way. Your character can kick, puch and do spin kicks as well.

* If you have ever owned an Atari Jaguar please let me know what your favorite video game they produced was by leaving comments in the box located at the bottom of this page.

Alien vs. Predator

Alien vs. Predator has many cut scenes and you can play as the alien or as the Predator. The game is played as first person shooter.

      The Atari Jaguar, that brings back memories. I never owned one but I remember playing it in the store. One of the many failed videogame systems of the '90s, it had good graphics for its time though.

      A failed unit, never had one myself. It boasted 64 bit, when it was actually two 32 bit processors working side by side.

      Oh man, too bad this was such a badly designed console. It was so strange to program most developers ditched it for easier routes. :/

      This was one of the game consoles I never really got any playtime on. None of my friends or cousins had it. Would read about occasionally in the video game magazines of the day.
