EU VC Releases - 29th February - Super Turrican
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Let's get this out of the way first - Sadly, there are no 3D games involving a pink puffball for Europe available this week.
What is available, however, is Factor 5's SNES blaster, Super Turrican. It got rated long ago, in mid-2007, so fans of the series (Which has achieved cult status) were wondering where the heck the game was. Worry no more though, because it's finally here! If you ask us, you're actually better off with Super Turrican than Kirby 64, so it's not too much of a loss. Kirby fans - Better luck next time! Super Turrican is also very, very notable for being one of the first games on VC developed by a western developer, in this case Factor 5. The only games before it were the Donkey Kong Country series by Rare.
Today's other game is yet another Turbografx shoot 'em up. Psychosis is a good game, and has a rather interesting plot, but is outclassed by many other shooters already on VC. Don't tell me this would be your first choice for Turbografx shoot 'em up when there's games like Lords of Thunder and Soldier Blade available! Still, it's not bad, so if you're a fan of the genre, you may find it worth checking out. Another thing possibly worth nothing is that it's the first non-CD Turbografx game in a while.
One great action game, and a good shooter. Not too shabby an update, I say! Check out the reviews:
Super Turrican - SNES - 800 Wii Points
Psychosis - Turbografx - 600 Wii Points
