US VC Releases - 10th September - Sonic 3

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

Hot on the heels of Europe's update last friday, North America gets Sonic the Hedgehog 3 today as well. The final game in the trilogy is a bit of a drop in quality from the second, but it still fun. And before you ask - No, it's not the "& Knuckles" version.

From out of nowhere comes NES Play Action Football. This is Nintendo's own take on American Football (North America already had Tecmo Bowl by, well, Tecmo), and, like most other NES sports games by Nintendo, isn't very impressive. Tecmo Bowl is better, so it is suggested you skip it.

Finally this week is the sublime sequel to Neutopia - Neutopia II. The game is in many ways similar to the first, but has loads of improvements which give it a slight edge over it's predecessor, including being able to walk diagonally (A much needed feature). If you liked the first game, you obviously can't go wrong here.

All in all, a good week for Americans - It doesn't stack up to the previous couple weeks though. Check out the reviews here:

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - Sega Genesis - 800 Wii Points

NES Play Action Football - NES - 500 Wii Points

Neutopia II - TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Wii Points

Figures...the only great game of note to come out is one that no-one in their right mind would even THINK about buying, being as you can get the entire Sonic Mega Collection for a mere 20 bucks...probably less these days.

NES Play Action Football was released right as the 2007 NFL season started here in the US, so it's not as random as it seems. They also released NES Open Tournament Golf right after the conclusion of the 2007 US Open. Coincidence? Not likely! I wonder how long it will take them to release Tecmo Super Bowl. Sigh...
