Re: Blast Corps, Underated?

I have recently been playing through Blast Corps on the N64. I have to say that if you have never played this game, you must! It has the magic quality of the 'Just one more go' gameplay. I am near the end but i am stuck on a level which is impossible (For my average ability). Even though i feel fru...

Since I'm without my Wii at the moment, I'm attempting to plough some older games I haven't had time for- this week, it's NiGHTS for the Saturn. Bought it years ago after hearing so much about how awesome it is, played it once, haven't touched it since. I'm still not completely convinced (am I alone...

Wild Ambition always seems to get a lot of flak, I got the arcade PCB last year and really enjoy it. Its pretty basic (like Real Bout with a sidestep button and polygon graphics) but its very fast and pretty damn fun to play. The console port is said to be much slower and uglier than the arcade ver...

In Real Bout Special get an overall S rank and after you beat Krauser you can face off against the awesome nightmare Geese. Fatal Fury Special is the game that lets you take on Ryo if you can clear the game without continuing. Art of Fighting 2 also has a hidden boss fight against Geese, don't cont...

Haven't played any of the individual anthologies (I'm waiting to see if Fatal Fury Battle Archives Vol. 2 ever comes out over here) but I picked up the Wii SNK Arcade Classics a few weeks ago. It's a shame that the sequels to some games were left out, as they're usually better (World Heroes 2 is a g...

Actually, I'm trying to collect all videogame-based movies on DVD too, so this topic is pretty useful- didn't even know there was a Wing Commander movie! I'm glad there's at least a few people who like the Street Fighter movie. If you forget it's based on Street Fighter at all, it's silly enough to ...

It depends on the game, really. For games like Metal Slug and Contra, I prefer button bashing- the Metal Slug collections offer rapid fire, but it doesn't really work that well, especially for weapons with limited ammo. It applies to most shoot-em-ups too, but I'm really glad the Raiden collection o...

Finished Global Defence Force for the PS2 on Easy last night. Technically, I haven't completely finished it yet, you need to beat all 71 missions on every difficulty to unlock one more setting (Impossible) but I got the ending, so I guess it counts. Anyone who has a PS2 absolutely must get a copy of...

The lamest ending I've seen is probably The Tower of Druaga- a creaky old Namco arcade game which made its way onto Namco Museum Vol. 3 for the PS1. 60 agonizing levels, each with an obtuse secret that has to be discovered if you want to finish the game at all (like touching all 4 walls in a certain...

The 'realistic' cut-scenes in Splatterhouse 3 still terrify me to this day... When I finally get another copy of it, I'm skipping them! Haven't seen this posted yet, though- a recent PC game called Eversion scared the life out of me... Probably because I was playing it at 2 in the morning. It seems ...

Dragon's Curse is recommended- it's actually a conversion of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, sort-of like Zelda 2, it's a really good adventure game. Absolute steal at 600 points. If you want something more arcade-like, then Bloody Wolf might be a good choice- there's a bit of slowdown, but it's ...
