Mm, not convinced by this one. It was really only worth playing with a buddy, rather than single player - it quickly got dull playing it on your own.

New Zealand Story would be a great addition, though. Along with Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder & Flashback..

I gave several Sega ports a try. I regretted every purchase so far... The Emu isn't doing justice to the games. IMO.

i kinda agree on that one, jar0d, although i didn't think that performance has been unacceptable. The main issue i take with sega's emu is the retarded buttons- it really beggars belief that they couldn't be bothered to code in the capacity to change the size, transparency or placement of them- like, for Sonic it's ok since you only need the jump, but for SoR, or Shinobi, most of the time your thumb is covering a good portion of the screen. Furthermore, screen sizing options are just woeful. Sega's lack of care in this regard is pretty breathtaking, and definitely smacks of a desire to just nickel and dime the audience who loved those games.

They still haven't even fixed the bug from the first one yet.

Everything mentioned above is true and just continuing proof of Sega's greed. I'm almost ashamed a Mega Drive was my first console now.

I'm not feeling the hate that others seem to have for this. Yes, the controls should be movable, but it's hardly a fun killer. GA2 is my favorite slashy game like this, and I'll get this at launch, so I suppose I'm part of the problem.
