A "Make My Video" title featuring the Kris Kross songs "Jump", "Warm It Up" and "I Missed The Bus".  If you've been browsing the other titles in the MMV series you may notice they've all got got practically the same review.  That's because they're practically the same game.  The title screens are almost identical, and although the front end has a different theme for each game, the gameplay (such as it is) is the same.  Three video windows show footage of the group themselves, films, cartoons or other images, and you choose when to insert them into the video.  Colour filters and effects can be applied to spice things up, but that's all you can do.  Once the song is over you can save your efforts and a character from the introduction will give their opinion of your creation.  The video itself is not the best seen on the Mega CD, but can be forgiven as three different streams are filling four windows at all times.  Audio is of course CD quality, and there are high quality renditions of all 3 tracks that can be played on a standard CD player.  All three titles are technically outstanding when you consider the hardware they're running on, and can be picked up cheaply, but perhaps remain more for fans of the groups or 90s music in general rather than gamers.
This game came in a large US-style box.  A variation with a plain cover and European manual was also released.  Although the part number printed on the manual is the same, the English only version is usually differentiated by a sticker on the outside of the box which may have been removed from my copy.  Two similar titles were released featuring C & C Music Factory and INXS.
