Europe VC Releases - 27th April - Final Fight
Posted by Darren Calvert
Hot on the heels of Sega's classic Streets of Rage a few weeks ago Nintendo now bring the original classic that inspired it in the shape of Final Fight. Whilst this isn't a perfect arcade conversion (it's only 1 player and only has Cody and Haggar, no Guy character) at the time this home conversion set the gaming world alight. We will leave you to make your own conclusions on if this is the better scrolling beat em up than Streets of Rage.
To contrast this ballsy arcade classic is the quirky and fun Battle Lode Runner on the TG-16. It's classic puzzle/platformfooder and well worth a look.
A gaming anomaly in the shape of Mighty Bomb Jack is also out today. It takes the original arcade Bomb Jack formula of tactical bomb collecting in order to get the best score and mixes it with a generic platform game. The results are needless to say not outstanding!
Final Fight - SNES - 800 Points
Battle Lode Runner - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Points
Mighty Bomb Jack - NES - 500 Points
