Good review, Masters. I was engaged all throughout. Too bad SFII has issues.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

Yeah, sucks. Made the whole thing almost worthless. Almost.

I dunno what's with me and all these compilation reviews. Good training in trying not to be boring I guess.

Use that training to write a Yoshi's Island review!

I didn't mean to. If you go to the game's page, you'll find my old account has a 9/10 review up for the game.

But as for why the reviewing world wants to see you write about Yoshi's Island, it's simple. Retro and I demand it. So that's everyone.

Haha. You know Retro? I thought he was around well before your time..? He's a good man. Sometimes. =D

If I can get a hold of the GBA version, I'll play it on my DS and see what I can put together.

No, I don't know Retro. But you told me that he wanted you to review Yoshi's Island. I'm just restating what you told me!

Wow, I didn't think anyone listened to me. That's impressive. Are you also of the opinion that Yoshi's Island is the best 2D platformer of all time?

Unfortunately I am not, but I do think it ranks pretty high up there.

For a second I figured Yoshi's Island would be a good game to review for the Alpha Marathon, getting that pesky Y out of the way, but then I realized the real title of the game is Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. So, uh, eff that idea.

Seriously. Who the hell calls it that?

Ha, nobody does. The GBA title is even more retarded, if I recall correctly.

On a completely unrelated note, why does the new James Bond title have a Castlevania title? :T "Quantum of Solace?" Are they serious...

Well there is always Yoshi's Island DS I suppose. I don't even think Nintendo would call YI SMW2 now, they obviously just did that to sell a few more copies (and it probably worked).

lol at the Castlevania thing.. I definitely thought that as well. I honestly thought QoS was the next CV game until I read it was the name of the new James Bond movie.

Another good review although I disagree with some of it. I love this collection for 1942, King of Dragons, and Knights of the Round alone. I found KoD and KotR to have great gameplay ideas with the leveling up systems, and found them to be far better games than FF which was fine but basically a typical beat em up with "attitude". And I liked Gun.Smoke even though it's hard >.>

(Also, good to hear good old Retro is alive and well. i miss that dude.)

Haha, I'll pass along your sentiment to Retro. Or better yet, I'll just direct him to this thread so he can bask in the love. ^_^ As far as the hack 'n slashers... I can see how you'd like them. I just found them to be slick Golden Axe wannabes... they just didn't do much for me. Gun.Smoke is ridiculous. =D Oh, and thanks for the positive feedback.

I've always preferred King of the Dragons and Knights of the Round to Final Fight. This was a great review, by the way. Once again, you really wrote a compelling review for a compilation. Capcom's attempts to emulate the arcade Street Fighter titles in their collections have been a disgrace compared to the excellent job they do on console ports, so I'm inclined to agree with this even without having played this particular edition.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Thanks Venter. Yeah, nothing worse than setting a guy up to jump at you, priming your uppercut, only to throw one of those pitiful jabs -- and ending up getting crushed by a energy draining combo.

I gotta say that I'm surprised that there are so many fans of that Knights of the Round game. Comparing it to Golden Axe makes me wanna go play Golden Axe again. But we know that that's probably a bad idea. =T

I have to say I'm surprised there are so many fans of Knights of the Round. It's not a bad game, but didn't really stand out THAT MUCH in my mind. I think I mentally classed it as a decent Final Fight clone in a medieval setting, but nothing extraordinary.

Then, I've only played it on the SNES. I do have to give the system credit, though, in that they couldn't have neutered the standard difficulty nearly as much as they did with Final Fight in porting it over. I'll have to give it another try and review it sometime, like when I'm not making much headway in my main projects (in other words, probably in the next week or two, as I've been way more disorganized in my gaming than I need to be).

Speaking of the pedestrian quality of KotR... anyone have any thoughts on the similarly ho-hum Magic Sword?

Magic Sword....

Well, a few years back, when I discovered the magic world of emulation, I was going berzerk, snapping up virtually any console game that looked intriguing to me (both ones I owned and ones I'd just seen in magazines). Some I kept, others I dumped off after a few minutes of gameplay annoyed or bored me. I have no recollection of this game (SNES port), although I'd be surprised if I hadn't DLed it, as I remember thinking it looked fun in Nintendo Power.

So, to make a long story short, assuming I HAVE played it, it left no impression on me whatsoever.
