One part of the Stargate universe that isn't MEDIOCRE

There once was a movie called "Stargate", starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. It had some interesting ideas, some shit blowing up, some really boring bits, and inspired a rather long running TV series, which has itself spun off to another series.
MEDIOCRE
There once was a game adaptation of "Stargate" by a company called Acclaim. Acclaim has produced many a movie adaptation for various consoles, as you may recall from my review of "Alien 3". Suffice it to say, Acclaim went out of business for at least one really good reason.
MEDIOCRE
There once was a day where I went to my local Cash Converters, and much to my pleasure, there was an alarmingly large cache of MegaDrive games, all boxed with manuals, all in great condition, practically all great titles, all $AUS5 each. I bought most of them, but left behind "Cliffhanger" and "Stargate", as, strangely enough, most movie adaptations aren't all that flash.
MEDIOCRE
A few days later, I went back and bought it anyway, having tried it briefly on an emulator, and capitulated to such thoughts as "Well, it's cheap enough" and "It's in good condition" and "When can I take my pants off?" and "I sort of liked the movie and show, I guess" and "Even if it's shit, I like shit games, they usually provide entertainment on some level".
MEDIOCRE
That night, I played "Stargate". As I recall, I played it for about half an hour, completing a couple levels, and moderately involved with it, at least until I got to a part where I seemed to be completely stuck. Not wanting to give up easily, I spent an extra 15 minutes trying anything (everything) to get past this part. No dice. It angered me, and I removed the cart with haste. Shortly thereafter, I realized the this incredibly generic platform shooter wasn't good enough to be worth playing again, and wasn't bad enough to be amusing. It was just MEDIOCRE.
