Europe VC Releases - 22nd June - Mega Man
Posted by Darren Calvert
It was always going to be a tough act to beat following last week's release of F-Zero X on the N64. Still it's as if Nintendo of Europe is not even trying! Here are this week's new releases:
Mega Man - NES - 500 Points
This is where it all started. Capcom's cute robot blaster franchise all started here 20 years ago. The graphics and sound are very dated now but the gameplay is still great fun. Be warned this game is tough as nails and will make you want to throw your classic controller through the TV screen. If you stick with it Mega Man is a fun challenge and a welcome addition to the Virtual Console library.
China Warrior - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Points
Also known as 'The Kung Fu' in Japan. This game was one of the first games on the PC Engine / TurboGrafx console. Back then gamers were really taken aback by the huge colourful sprites, smooth animation and awesome soundtrack. However this 'Kung Fu Master' is just not a fun game. It's fun for about 5 minutes and quickly becomes dull and repetitive due to any lack of variety. Download this at your peril.
So that's it for this week. Keep smiling! Maybe you needed to spend more time outdoors in the sun anyway!
