Europe VC Releases - 10th August - Breath of Fire II
Posted by Darren Calvert
So Europe, no Wave Race 64. Still it's not all bad, let's have a look at what goodies are up for grabs this week:
One of the most popular RPG's of all time continues with the next epic quest in Breath of Fire II. Re-enter the magical life of hero Ryu, a dragon morphing warrior, as he unknowingly embarks on a vast adventure in search of his missing father and little sister. Well worth a look for RPG fans.
Galaga '90 is highly recommended for shoot-em-up fans. It's a nod to the 1981 arcade classic, which itself sort of plays like Space Invaders on steroids. There are many nice improvements here over the original game so there isn't much to dislike about this offering.
Volleyball is another one of those classic NES sports games. Unlike you have a masochistic need to punish yourself this is best avoided. Games like Soccer have aged horribly but were at least popular at the time; gaming history is virtually silent on this one - and with good reason!
Check out this week's reviews:
Breath of Fire II - SNES - 800 Points
Galaga '90 - Turbografx - 600 Points
Volleyball - NES - 500 Points
