World Heroes 2 (Neo Geo)

Game Profile

The time traveling tournament fighters are back! The original eight characters from the popular arcade hit return, along with six new characters hand-picked from several different eras and locations all through time. But a new boss awaits the victor... who or what is behind this new tournament? You'll have to get to him to find out!

This sequel features all-new stages and music, and improved animation and graphics. You can now reflect projectile moves at your opponent, and reverse normal throws if your timing is right! The original game's Death Match mode is also back, but with a new feature - the life bar will increase or decrease as you inflict or receive damage. Get your side's life bar to 100% and your enemy will lose.

Global gathering

ADK’s World Heroes series is one of the Neo Geo’s lesser-known fighting dynasties, and is usually pushed to one side when people get all nostalgic about the likes of King of Fighters, Art of Fighting, Samurai Shodown and Fatal Fury. This is probably...

Meh another Neo Geo that fails to hold my intreast. The first World Heroes sounds pritty generic and i have a feeling this will only be slighty enjoyable. Still i had a feeling this would come soon though.



KeeperBvK said:

Ehm, couldn't you find any better vid? Sorry to complain, but that's a bit poor in comparison to what I have come to expect from you guys.



Adroitone said:

Wow, so after this one releases, there will be World Heroes 2 Jet and World Heroes Perfect left. World Heroes Perfect is by far the best in the series. Huge improvement over the previous ones.



Charco said:

Why get this, when you will no doubt be able to get World Heroes Perfect at a later stage? Same goes for Fatal Fury 1 and 2 when Fatal Fury Special will be released. Yawn. I grow tired of the VC.



DEMON212 said:

Charco, maybe people want the full set. I do. I don't just buy Ocarina because it's the bext Zelda, I get ALTTP too.



KeeperBvK said:

Demon, you can't compare those games. A new zelda never renders an older one redundant, as it boasts new areas and levels to explore, new enemies to battle and new riddles to solve, whereas a new World Heroes...is just better than the old ones with more characters and better playability.

The evil football player looks pretty cool. I want him to play for the St. Louis Rams maybe they will have a better season.



Ricardo91 said:

Great, just what we all need. A sequel to another crappy NEO-GEO fighter.

Demon, Keeper is right. Each Zelda game is distinctly different from each other, so it's worth owning all of them. Sequels like this play just like the first game, except better.



Corbs said:

Wait for World Heroes Perfect or at the very least, World Heroes 2 Jet. I've always liked the World Heroes games, despite their lackluster reputation among Neo Geo fans.



tatemon555 said:

Hmm... I love one-on-one fighters, and this one has a great list of characters, but I'll probably pass.



DIRTY said:

This was my favorite WH game, just bc the others were called Jet and Perfect doesn not make them better. This one had the best backgrounds, music, and was more original. The games after this were solid, but were tweaked with super moves, but the presentation was inferior, IMHO

Has anyone played Neo Geo Fighting Coliseum? Hanzo, Fuuma, Mudman and Neo Dio appeared in that game; makes me wish for a World Heroes 3 using those sprites and the other characters from the World Heroes games redone the same way. All four of the characters redesigns looked a whole lot better than they used to in World Heroes.
