Did You Know?


The Sega CD game was pulled from retail store shelves in late 1993 as a result of the controversy and congressional hearings. However, after the controversy died down and the ESRB rating system became standard use in late 1994, the game was re-released for several systems: Sega CD (with new packaging), Sega CD 32X, 3DO, DOS and Macintosh. The original Sega CD release is now considered a collector's item. See more »

Crazy Credits

EASTER EGG: In the original Sega CD version, when the photo tribute of Hasbro's late C.E.O., Stephen D. Hassenfeld appears at the end of the credits, pressing the button commands on the game controller: Up, A, A, A, A, A - will reveal hidden footage. This footage from 1986 shows Hasbro executives playing "Scene of the Crime" (the original title for Night Trap) on their NEMO system.

Brilliant B-Movie video game
14 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first video game that actually gave the player a feeling of really being "inside" a movie. It was modeled after b-movies of the 1970s and 1980s so it has everything you can ask for in a cheeseball film. Vampires, scantily clad women, and gallons of blood and gore! All this in a video game FOR KIDS! Yeah they dont make 'em like they used to. This game caused a scandal when people realised just how sleazy it was. The fact it had a woman showing her breasts didnt really help things either. Sega eventually pulled the game after a bunch of toy store chains refused to carry it. Cool game, hope it gets re-released sometime.
