A "Make My Video" title featuring the C & C Music Factory songs "Gonna Make You Sweat", "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" and "Here We Go Let's Rock & Roll".  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 version with a plain cover and European manual was also released.  Two similar titles were released featuring Kris Kross and INXS.

This is the most distinctive of the blue-stripe variations.  Not only does the cover have a blue stripe but they are based on the US cover - the pad featured has a "Genesis" logo, as opposed to the "MegaDrive" pad on the plain cover version, and the text on the back includes the spelling "honor".   The spines are also blue and feature a different style of Mega-CD logo, and the back has slightly different text (with the same screenshots and captions) and the "Sega seal of quality".  Like all other big-box variant twins, the barcodes, disc printing and game content are identical.
