US VC Releases - 3rd September - Landstalker
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Yet another great week for Americans. This week you don't get 3 games, but 4! Although it's questionable if one of them can be considered a game...
The big game of the week is Landstalker. This RPG for the Genesis is one of the finest games on the system, and one of the best isometric RPGs ever made. It's quite a big game and will keep you entertained for hours. This is not one to miss.
Second this week is Bonk 3 for the TurboGrafx. The final Bonk game on the system rivals Bonk's Revenge for best game in the series, and introduces some fun new gameplay elements like growing and shrinking, along with a 2 player mode.
The third game this week is the first game in the series with everybody's favourite fat man in a grass skirt. Yes, it's Adventure Island! One of Hudson's best series, although it seems to have disappeared off the face of the Earth lately. Will we get another game in the series ever again? Regardless, the original game is a bit better than the VC's other Adventure Island offering - New Adventure Island.
America's final "game" today is Donkey Kong Jr. Math. Presumably this was only thrown in this week since Europe's had it for about 3 months, as it's a rubbish educational game which won't entertain you for more than a minute. Download at your own risk!
That's the third week in a row North America has a great selection. What's going on at Nintendo of America? Check out the reviews here:
