Original Post

Well originally I was totally against R-Zone believing it to be a useless console. After buying my first complete NOS R-Zone XPG with Jedi Adventure… I decided to buy a loose console to try it out because online reviews can’t show what it’s actually like.

After much deciding over the last couple weeks, I have now bought 3 head units (because its cheaper to collect games with consoles) and the NOS XPG.

I now own the following R-Zone games:

Star Wars Jedi Adventure (NOS, so I have no opinion on the game)
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Challenge (Quite fun, has a Vectrex-like feel)
Battle Arena Toshinden (hard to play because I don’t have a manual, nor is there one for download)
Primal Rage (Actually pretty cool once you learn the special combo moves)
Batman Forever (Very close to your average Tiger handheld, which is a good thing… Classic)
Indy 500 (Also feels Vectrex-like, standard racing game)

Overall, it’s actually surprisingly good; but difficult to collect for because its obscure.

I spent around $80 for it all, which isn’t bad but now I have 2 extra head units, which I guess friends could use for play?

I was also able to download a console manual, the Batman Forever manual, Indy 500 manual and Primal Rage manual. The other games sadly do not have them available because they are slightly rarer.

I wanted to make sure it got posted into this thread, seeing as this tends to be the most-official source of what-is, and what-isn’t of Tiger R-Zone games. I found these 5 pre-release renders somewhere on the Internet, and had them stored on my machine for the last few years.

I figured I’d better post them here, before they’re lost forever…

I wish I knew more about them…

Neat! Some to add to the “unconfirmed” list. I did a reverse-image search and found https://www.reddit.com/r/TigerElectronics/ …which appears to be a subreddit made by some guy only to try and find people to sell him their Tiger electronics, with posts for all of those renders. Unfortunately no info on where the images came from.
