he second week in a row North American gamers can call themselves spoiled - Three brilliant games this week once again. Highlight of the bunch is Ghouls 'n Ghosts, the second in the incredibly difficult platformer series. This is the version released on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Though still hard, the game is possibly the easiest in the series, which can be attributed to being able to attack upwards and downwards instead of forwards only.

The second game today is Breath of Fire II. One of the most well-known SNES RPGs of all time, it's not incredibly stunning or amazing, but if you're a fan of the genre and haven't played it, you're missing out on something pretty good.

The final game today is Super C. The "C" naturally standing for "Contra", this is a NES port of the arcade game by the same name. While it doesn't match up to the brilliance that is Contra III, it is still a worthy entry in the series, so if you're a fan, you can't go wrong here.

So, 2 weeks in a row with 3 great games for NA. Are you running out of money yet? Check out the reviews here:

Ghouls 'n Ghosts - Genesis - 800 Wii Points

Breath of Fire II - SNES - 800 Wii Points

Super C - NES - 500 Wii Points
