I picked up Sin & Punishment today, really fun game but 12 bucks is not justifiable. I don't think I'd be so frustrated with the price though if there was an option to buy 1500 wii points instead of giving nintendo $20 to buy a $12 game. :/ I know I'll spend that 800 points eventually, but I still don't like it. The only "update" to the game is that a feature that wasn't available until after you beat the game (English menus) is available from the start. And they made similiar updates to other VC games with out raising the price.
Still, I never got to play S&P before, and once again Treasure has delivered a solid hit. It's a ton of fun, and very challenging for an on-rails.
Definitely bad audio though, there's points where the characters talk over each other or mumble and you can tell the English script wasn't written by some one who was 100% fluent in the language.
Why is Lost Levels so new to everyone? I had it on Mario All-Stars and beat it the same as any of the others. Weird. Oh well.
Because this is the original meaning unless you had an import Famicom, you've never played this version of the game.
It's also apparently harder than the all-stars version but since I've never played the all-stars one, I can't really say but having played it for a while yesterday, it is significantly harder than any of the NES released mario games.
I could be wrong but I believe the All Stars version is the same game as what we're seeing here on VC. They use the same title, so I assume it's the same game.
you're wrong. the version on the VC is the famicom version not the SNES version. when you start up the game is says "Super Mario Bros. 2" just like the Japanese release not 'the lost levels' like the allstars release.
