The Jaguar was Atari’s last hurrah into the video game console market. And while it only sold for a couple short years, this sleek console left an impressive with its powerful processors, quirky joystick and a handful of classic games.

  1. Angry videogame nerd disliked this video. 😂

  2. I remember older friends (tweens) trying to explain to me why the Jaguar sucked, “ya see bits stop mattering at a certain point, 8 to 16 massive change, 16-32 decent change 32-64 bits, very marginal change”. Still sounds kinda convincing to layman like me.

  3. Ahhhh the days when Metal Jesus would call a controller a joystick

  4. Hey Metal Esho, your name is misspelled!

  5. The Dreamcast controller looks like the jaguar and xbox had a baby.

  6. Found a jaguar a couple days ago w 6 games , now just to stumble upon a cd unit hmm

  7. I just don't understand why people keep reviewing these ancient consoles when they've been done so many times already we're not learning anything new there's only so many games for those pieces of crap… Can't we all just move on, from the words of Colonel Troutman it's over Johnny.. I mean no disrespect to you video game Jesus guy

  8. Hey jesus i just got one of this but without box 1 controller 2 games. Someone give it to me but i don't plan to keep it i may sell it

  9. For 64 bits these graphics are shitty for a console.

  10. I'm doing a large project on the good and bad of video game consoles, and am using this review in part. Could you please tell me what you would give this console out of 5?

  11. The cardboard overlay over the controller's buttons isn't unique the Jaguar, the ColecoVision had it too.

  12. The doom and wolfenstein were awesome. Actually the wolfenstein was probably the best on Jag. I love the PC classic, but they stepped it up on Jag. I would suggest Doom, Wolfenstein, and Cybermorph for anyone who gets a hold of one today.

  13. I remember my brothers friend letting is borrow this, we played doom and alien vs predator if I remember correctly it was really smooth and cool to play

  14. I want to see an episode dedicated to favorite snacks. Or peace pipe collection?? Both of which go great with video games!

  15. Metal Jesus, I have been sent here to this comment section from the future. The year is 2031 and there is some weird shit going on involving you, drunken master Paul, a jaguar, and a pogo stick. Please don’t ask questions. I need you to come back to the future with me now! Your asshole depends on it!

  16. MJR is a Jaguar apologist. Don't listen to him, the Jaguar is a total piece of shit.

  17. Sorry Metal J but only a true Atari lover can appreciate the Jaguar. Basically a conversation piece like the Virtual Boy.

  18. controller looks like an 360 controller with keyboard.

  19. Nice review. You’re right, Jaguar Doom was excellent. However, releasing Raiden instead of Raiden 2 was naff and Cannon Fodder ran just as well on my Commodore Amiga; Raiden and CF were not what you should expect from a supposed 64 bit system.

  20. this Atari Jaguar is solid console with solid controller,some solid games may be profitable,for me,some racing games like Atari Karts,Chechered Flag,Supercross 3D and Club Drive was interested me,for all games,AlienVs.Predator was something like Alien Trilogy,Tempest was clear classic game,and other games have something what maded on little quality

  21. AVGN’s review is better. He points out the fact that maybe they lied about it being 64 bits cause there isn’t a single game on the Jaguar that looks better than anything on the SNES.

  22. Well Metal Jesus You get A Sub From Me From a Metal Head To another Great Job Metal on

  23. Dude I vividly remember this console, only because I used to drool over a whole gaming package one could have won out of a 90s gaming magazine!

  24. I worked on the jaguar and I am glad to see someone enjoy it. About the jaguars power I will explain, the jaguar have two 32-bit processors nicknamed tom and jerry. One handle graphics and the other handle the sound. Thats how we could market the jaguar as a 64-bit console. 32+32=64 in other words "do the math" However, because only one of the processors handle graphics the jaguar is actually only a 32-bit console. Which explains why it cant do graphics like a nintendo 64. The jaguar also had another component similar to what you would find in a 16-bit console. It was only there for telling the two 32-bit processors what to do. But programing games for a console that has two processors instead of just one is somewhat difficult. And because of that many programers was tempted to use the 16-bit component instead. And thats why there are so many games on the jaguar that looks like 16-bit. As one of the makers behind the jaguar I would say it had the potential of a 32-bit game console in the right hands. Similar to a sony playstation or sega saturn.

  25. Fuuckk MJ, thank god you quit shaving, that turkeyneck is much unfortunate

  26. I like aliens vs predator on my Jaguar

  27. METALJESUS: “…and two ports in the front for two joysticks.”
    ME: “……what joysticks???” 😂

  28. damn, finally I can watch that video, it was blocked for some reason (music probably, even if its barely noticable) in my country

  29. This console is one of the many casualties of the tumultuous period of transition from 16 to 32 bit hardware, which had to coincide with the passage from 2D to 3D games..
    All hardware producers knew they wanted it, nobody quite understood how to achieve it, until Sony came along. The amount of computing power needed to do 3D was too much for anything that came before Playstation.
    Too bad for playstation that PC users got Voodoo graphics just a few months after the Playstation came out, making the console look outdated (to PC gamers at least) in 96! 😂

  30. 4:16. Not unique, totally retro by 1993. Didn't Intellevision have this? Atari 2600 had this for Star Raiders etc. maybe Odyssey II ( not sure).

  31. Add the CD drive and it looks like a toilet.

  32. I would have liked to see Kasumi Ninja and Ultra Vortek covered 🥵
