Yeah, if they released KOF '98, World Heroes Perfect, Samurai Shodown III/IV, Art of Fighting 3
and one of Real Bout
games then it would be much better. The first games in each respective series are still important and not bad
games but they've aged enough to put buyers off.
Although with Metal Slug
, I don't mind the first one being re-released since it's the best in my opinion. It has been punted back out onto compilations and download services a lot
in recent years though.
Agree on Metal Slug. I was a bit miffed when I bought SNK Classics Vol. 1 on the Wii and later found out that there was a Metal Slug Anthology on the machine which also included the first game. If they were planning on releasing a complete compilation of the Metal Slug games why didn't they leave the game out of the Classics collection and bung in League Bowling, Nam-1975, Viewpoint or OverTop instead?
EDIT - or Windjammers.
Personally I was hoping for a Vol. 2
compilation. Stuff like Windjammers, The Super Spy, League Bowling
and the £300+ shmups are all stuff I'd like to be able to play without messing with Neo Geo BIOS' on MAME.
Just a reliable, constantly updated digital service would do me but like I say, they always get left to rot in an unsupported limbo before the juicy games come along.
As for Metal Slug
, I've now got it on SNK AC V1
plus I own both the PS2 and PSP ports of MS Anthology
so although it's a storming game, I've got enough 'copies' of it!
