Last Action Hero for the NES, Super NES, Mega Drive/Genesis, Game Boy and Sega Game Gear is one of a handful of video game adaptations of the Arnold Schwarzenegger film of the same name, this time by Sony Imagesoft. A Sega Master System version was also developed, but never released. Unlike many such adaptations, the game closely follows the plot and scenery of the movie. The game, like the movie, was not received with much enthusiasm from the public. In fact, all versions of the game faced an even poorer reception than the film, receiving mostly negative reviews. A separate version was released on the Commodore Amiga and was developed by Psygnosis. A Final Fight-style scrolling beat-em-up, the game was critically panned due to its poor graphics, limited set of moves and repetitive gameplay.
