Always wanted to play that game since it was released and after all those years I finally played it on MAME (it's coming to the VC I think) it's a great little game. Even though it was one of the earlier AES/MVS games it still looks good
Fantastic game indeed. Very hard though, imaging if Ghouls and Ghosts was harder and this is the result.

Also got Last Resort and Spinmasters on there way, both for the Neo Geo AES.

I'd be interested in thoughts, I'd like Fifa08 for one of the two.... which should I get. (I have no footy game on either)

You'd be better off with Pro evolution 2008 (360 version).

But some like fifa 2008 and to be honest it is the best fifa so far , just a bit slow.

Pro Evo is censored this time around (but to be honest I didn't like the last one). Plus heavily bugged on the PS3 (has that been fixed yet?).

Duds - I'll play the PS3 one and let you know, but as with everything else, if you are looking to take it online I assume the 360 would be best (and cheaper).

Ok, so this didn't materialise in the end because over here the version you can get 'only' includes French, German, Italian and Spanish localisation. Seriously, what the hell is the logic behind this? SURELY they could have stuck English on there too?

I used to have trouble getting English language games when I lived in Spain...


And there I was thinking Europe was all one region... :?

It's not too bad with a lot of games. Most on the Wii and DS are 5-in-1, a number of games for other platforms are fine too (I bought Supreme Commander on the PC which had English selectable, for example). I could understand if GHIII was a largely cinematic game with a lot of voice acting localisation and so on, but it's not. On the PS2 version, you actually get one less language (I think Italian is left off). I just don't see what the point is.

Avoid Pro Evo if you want online play. It's laggy as hell, offline is good though. This is for the 360, avoid PS3 at all costs apparently.

As for me I bought a Dual Shock 3 Sixaxis, hopefully it will be here before Uncharted.

It's still somewhat laggy offline for PS3, but it's better than before.
