Radical Rex Review (Xbox Series S)
Our Radical Rex Review has us hanging out with Radical Rex. He’s the raddest, baddest fire-breathing Tyrannosaurus ever to shred prehistoric pavement! This bad-boy-on-wheels is out to save the dinosaur race. Check Rex thrashin’ on his board, sportin’ his flame-breath, bustin’ out with killer jump-kicks, swingin’ on vines and blastin’ out screen-shaking roars. Excellent!

Radical Rex is back! Originally released in 93 and 94, QUByte has gone and bundled the two versions together, added state save, and here we are! The thing is Radical Rex was never a huge deal even back then, it’s very nostalgic now but that’s more from a graphical/gameplay stance. I sat there and finished them both and it was fine, this is for a quick nostalgia hit because there isn’t really anything else to do here. I would have loved to have seen pieces on the games from the history to the box art or anything but no there is nothing but the two games. The Gameboy version does allow different game screen colors so that’s cool. The walk away here is Radical Rex is a great little stroll down memory lane, the game is dated but fun and this is just a solid port with no gimmicks or extras.
