Critic Richard Leadbetter actually claimed to prefer the Mega Drive version. "Although I liked [the Amiga version] quite a bit, I think it's even better now it's made its way over to the Megadrive. It's just got so much to offer with its superlative audio/visuals and its addictive gameplay." One thing that was cut from the Mega Drive version of 'Chuck Rock' was the animated introduction. Unless they look on the back of the box Sega players will have no idea why Chuck is trekking trough prehistoric locales terrorising dinosaurs and moving rocks around. The excised animated introduction explains that his glamorous alluring wife was actually kidnapped by another caveman called Gary Gritter. Of course this is a name that has become far my villainous since the game's release, given the crimes committed by Gary Glitter (upon who the character is clearly based).

Where did I get this game from?
When you buy a bundle of games, you get some good, some bad and some you barely even register. 'Chuck Rock' was a game I knew from playing on my Amiga, but I never would have gone back to the game if it wasn't included in a bulk buy.
