ALADDIN (1993, SNES/Genesis/GBA)
Complex Says: This was one of Disney’s major mainstream forays into foreign lore. Too bad back in ’93 we didn’t even know what country the movie/game was set in. We probably thought it was some magical part of Mexico where they had palaces and Hammer pants. We heard it was set somewhere near modern-day Iraq, but what game is set in the Middle East where you aren’t blowing up terrorists? So yeah, Mexico it is. Regardless, we have to go with the SNES version as our favorite. Capcom developed that version, and we think it’s all the better for that reason. Naturally, your goal is to rescue Princess Jasmine (uh, HAWT). Overall, just a great platformer game.
