A diverse selection for Europe today, as besides a shoot 'em up and a fighter, we get the strange sequel to the original Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. The game is a lot different from the original game, though the influence is still very obvious. Instead of fighting your way through linear levels, you've instead got a large overworld to explore, complete with dungeons and secrets! The game's been criticized a lot over the years, and has even been called "most disappointing sequel of all time", but this is honestly not doing it any justice, as it's a pretty good game. Just don't expect anything similar to the original!
Second today, it's the first Turbografx-CD game, Gate of Thunder! It's a really good horizontal shmup, with a rocking soundtrack. There's a reason this is frequently mentioned in lists of best shoot 'em ups!
And finally today, we've got World Heroes. It's a good fighter for the Neo Geo, and it's cartoony characters are a nice alternative to Fatal Fury's slightly more realistic approach. Still, it and most other "early" Neo Geo fighters are outclassed by their own sequels, so it might be worth waiting!
A fairly diverse selection for Europe today, and none of the games are bad. Take your pick:
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - NES - 500 Wii Points
I told you guys they were releasing Turbo CD games. This is a very big deal! It means we could get Saturn, Sega CD games. High quality games like Lunar, Y's, D, Nights, Panzer Dragoon Zwei (One of the best fly by shooters ever made). If you never played D you missed one of the best horror games.
