Europe VC Releases - 20th July - Street Fighter II Turbo
Posted by Darren Calvert
Here's what Euro gamers get today...
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting will satisfy the needs of most retro gamers. This is the perfect choice for gamers in Europe (PAL) region as the game features a speed select system so you don't have to play in slow-mo like the original SNES SF2. It's an excellent game that most people will be familiar with, well worth a look if you can't wait for Super Street Fighter II to be released!
Silent Debuggers may interest some. It's a dungeon crawler game set in space, not really a FPS as some might say. There are too many flaws with this game to make it a worthwhile purchase for everyone but some might like it. It depends on your threshold for boredom I suppose!
A last minute surprise rolled in this week in the shape of Metroid on the NES. There's no doubt about it, Metroid is a classic which many gamers will have fond memories of. It's the start of a wonderful franchise so deserves our respect however we can't help feeling this original game is going to be a bit of a let down to newcomers due to flustrating gameplay elements.
Check out this week's reviews:
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting - SNES - 800 Points
Silent Debuggers - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Points
Metroid - NES - 500 Points
