I've got a 1000 points left and I think I want a strategy title more than an RPG. I've been wanting Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordily Caliber, it seems like the best strategy title available on VC or the WiiWare service. Can anybody tell me if it's as good as it seems to be? I'll probably purchase Chrono Trigger or Phantasy Star lV in the future, because I don't want to be left with 200 Wii points just sitting around teasing me. Also, nintendolife informs me that you aren't able to experience every mission in one playthrough. So are you able to transfer your equipment and ranks you've collected into your following playthroughs or are you forced to start over from scratch?

As far as strategy titles go, Ogre Battle 64 is the best "real-time-esque" option, the Shining Force games the best strategy RPGs, Military Madness the best turn-based strategy game and Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV the best management title.

I'd say Shining Force 2 is the best game of the five overall, but it depends on what type of game you want. "Strategy" is a very broad descriptor.

If you're talking about Chrono Trigger then yes, you can transfer all your equipment, items, levels and stats over to a new game ("New Game +" option gets unlocked.) once you beat it.

Yeah, I know Chrono Trigger has that option @SKTTR, I was actually referring to OB 64: PoLC. But thanks for caring. Your a good friend, why don't you join our NL Moto Heroz racing league my friend or do you already belong to one? (<:

No. You have to start over from scratch.

Fixed. Seriously, outside of the occasional loop-de-loops and Sonic himself, you'd never know it was a Sonic game. And it's Isometric, not Top-down. With that said, I personally enjoyed it for what it was. The levels were all well designed and creative, I never really had a problem with the controls like I usually do with Isometric games, and it was generally pretty fun, so long as you take it for what it is.

I have 2000 Wii Points to kill. What should I get? I really only want VC games by the way, hence, why I'm posting on the VC recommendations thread.

Hey I've got $8 on my channel account, so what should I get-- Super Mario World or Zelda: A Link To The Past? From what I've heard, I'm leaning towards ALTTP, but I'm fans of both series. What should I do!?

ALttP is a great game. Either one would be a good choice, unless they show up for 100 coins on Club Nintendo later. I don't know, you might be better off buying something not published by Nintendo.

I got all the original Wonder Boy versions and I wouldn´t like it any other way. I prefer the Wonder Boy versions and I´m very happy with them.

1. Wonder Boy (SMS)
2. Wonder Boy in Monster Land (SMS)
3. Wonder Boy III: The Dragon´s Trap
4. Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair (MD)
5. Wonder Boy in Monster World (MD)

Despite the TG versions having CD music, the original Wonder Boy chiptunes are much better imo.

The only one that´s a bit disappointing is the MD version of Monster Lair. It´s missing some levels compared to the TG version. I hope the full original arcade version will be released (you should wait for that one).

The others (Adventure Island, The Dynastic Hero, and Dragon´s Curse) are almost 1:1 ports, at least in level design. But Wonder Boy has unlimited continues and looks much better than Adventure Island.
Dragon´s Curse has a save feature compared to WB3:TDT password, but that makes no difference, at least not with the Wii´s suspend feature. And The Dynastic Hero has an animated intro and alternative characters/story, but like I said before, you get an all-new CD soundtrack that´s missing all the great tunes from Monster World.

Just flip a coin. There's no way you can go wrong with either one.

@lonlon-milker If you want Street Fighter 2 I'd wait for the online version. And if you're thinking of which Castlevania game to get, this vs thread might help you decide. Also you could wait and see if Monster World 4 is really coming to the VC later this year. It's like a platformer/RPG/beat em up game.

So this is probably a weird question/request, but can anyone recommend a game that they had never played before and turned out great. For me, the VC is mostly great because of nostalgia. For example, I had never played Super Metroid before but downloaded it because I had heard how awesome it was. And although I know it improves on the original in every imaginable way, I still prefer the original Metroid, and the only reason I can give is because I grew up playing the original. So does anyone have a game that they took a chance on even though they had never played it before and truly loved it?
