glopesci commented on Will Sega CD Support Ever Come To The Virtual ...:

Damo...HOW DARE YOU LEAVE ETERNAL CHAMPIONS: Challenge from the Darkside off that list!! I still play this today. Out of this World Double Feature, anyone? There are indeed some great games out there on Sega CD. I enjoyed the batman game more than more of his other video game outings short of the first one on NES!!
C'mon Damo!! LOL

DarkMidst, there are alot of differences between this one and Part 2 which was the one on Sega CD (Challenge from the Darkside was the title)
I won't go to into all the details but a short summary of the differences are as follows:

1) E.C. has 9 characters vs. E.C. 2 has 25 characters (though I must say that 5 of those hidden characters are animals so that weren't put in there as serious contenders but when you get your butt whipped by a chicken it doesn't do much for your ego!! LOL

2) EC 1 has 9 fatalities...basically one per envoirment/level vs. EC2 has 32 fatalities which is 2 per level because every main character (17 main but 25 playable) except the animals, Eternal and Dark Eternal Champion, and Thantos(he shares his level with Xavier the Sorcerer) has their own level which represents their time era AND every character except the animals and Eternal and Dark Eternal Champion can kill themselves like in mortal kombat AND 13 of the Characters can have something happen to them CAlled CineKills where the Dark Eternal Champion comes on the screen, removes from the level back to his place and kills you in 3-D (think of it has a cut scene kill) so in all we are talking about 62 fatalities in ONE GAME!!

3) EC 1 the nine characters you can play with have about maybe 5 to 6 special powers that they can do besides there unique fighting style...so think projectiles, shields, disapper/reappear, etc.
vs. EC 2 has given all the main characters At LEAST anywhere from 12 to 15 moves besides their original fighting styles and then some of the moves have multiple functions like Shadow can disappear by throwing a smoke bomb and she has the options of appearing right next to you or coming from the left or right upper corner with a kick so you can't tell, she can throw stars fast or slow, etc.

Sorry so long but those are just some of the things. It was a huge game and still one of the best all around fighters ever!!

Damo, I have only been here a little but so far you seem like a pretty fair reviewer; thank you for you well balanced insight and honesty. BUT you left out some critical things that also set this game apart from the others....
1) Bigger if not the Biggest Character sprites to fit on a tv screen in a fighter in it's time. Didn't matter what tv you played this on..these characters are big in stature and it made the game seem bigger.

2) Replay - What other fighter allowed you to replay the winning round of the fight for rubbing in the bragging right purposes but EC? Yes, you could replay, rewind, fast forward and I believe even play in slow-mo the vicious beat down you gave your friend and relive that had combo that you pulled off flawlessy!!

3) Level Fatalities - I believe the first of it's time (may be wrong) but the thought of just not being able to push in a combo of buttons and kill your opponent because "you got lucky" (lol) and won the match with your abuse of the low sweep was put to rest when EC made it so you had to play "chess" in a way with your opponent and not only beat them but beat in them into certain areas on the level where you would then have to throw them or get a powerful hit in to activate the death the the levels could provide. This added intensity, strategy and an incentive to not just sit back and throw fireballs or weak punch someone to death.
And yes, that can be quite difficult but when you pull it off you feel like more than just a button masher that can remember Left left, right, down A and finish your opponent. Your earned it, now watch and revile in it with glee!!

Man Eternal Champions was MY FAVORITE FIGHTER until Eternal Champions part 2 came out on Sega CD!! Listen to those who have never played this game...I don't know how hard it will be to play this because I used a 6-button sega controller when I played back in the day and I don't know how well a regular Wiimote(that's all I have) or a classic will translate BUT for it's time these characters were HUGE!! There were only about 9 Fighters but they were so UNIQUE and had soo many different fighting styles, projectiles and powers and instead of the people being able to kill you i.e. fatalities from Mortal Kombat, in EC you would fight your opponent in a way to manuever them to a certain place on the level where something in the envoirment would do the job for you. I used to love that. Also the original had an option to replay the entire match and your could rewind and control the speed in which you watched it. Can't get over that combo you put together? Rub it in the face of your opponent but showing it in super slow motion!! LOL Get this game....well unless you have the option of getting EC2: Challenge From the Darkside....that is still one of the most unique, creative and insanely addictive fighters I have ever played!!
