Secret of Evermore > Secret of Mana

Fact.

Unless you have the multi-tap adapter, in which case 3 player Secret of Mana so wins.

Haven't played Secret of Evermore, but Secret of Mana has one of the most annoying battle systems I have ever experienced.

The best football game on the whole system is ISS Deluxe. Good luck finding that, though.

The only real horrible things about Secret of Mana were that leveling up stuff sucked and magic was supremely cheap on bosses (chain casting).

So, it seems I'm the only one annoyed by the system being "hit once -> wait...just a bit more now...another moment...now you can hit me again -> hit again -> please wait some more..."

Pick up Demon's Crest if possible, Great little game made by Capcom, not to mention Megaman X 1-3, All classics.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4, Come on, Big Apple, 3am.

The SNES-version of Mortal Kombat II had more fatalities and all that from the Genesis version, I grew up on the original, but if your looking for more content, go with the SNES.

Good luck buying all these.

AND BUY IN DOSES! Sample and savor every game you buy, then move on to others!

And see if you can get a copy of Gundam Wing: Endless Duel... Sooooo fun.

Umihara Kawase is probably one of the most 'hardcore' SNES games ever made. It's deceptively simple, it's easy to get into, but incredibly hard to master.

Too bad that it's basically a Super Famitsu title, though it's easy to play through an emulator.

It also has some of the most inordinate number of porn based on it for some odd reason..

OK so my current list includes:


  • Breath of Fire
    Breath of Fire 2
    Chrono Trigger
    Donkey Kong Country
    Donkey Kong Country 2
    Donkey Kong Country 3
    Earthbound
    Final Fantasy 2 (4)
    Final Fantasy 3 (6)
    F-Zero {Obtained}
    Illusion of Gaia {Obtained}
    Kirby Super Star
    Lufia {E-bay}
    Lufia 2
    Megaman X
    Megaman X2
    Megaman X3
    Secret of Mana {E-bay}
    StarFox {Obtained}
    Super Mario All-Stars & Super Mario World {Loaned out}
    Super Mario RPG {Loaned out}
    Super Mariokart
    Super Metroid {Obtained}
    Yoshi's Island
    Zelda 3: A Link to the Past

My secondaries include:


  • Castlevania IV
    Castlevania: Dracula X
    Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
    Plok
    Super Punch-Out
    Tetris and Dr. Mario
    Zombies Ate My Neighbors

I'll buy the secondaries as convenient; the primaries I really want. Space shooters and such aren't really my type of game.. and Terranigma I'm not sure I can get in English. SO is japanese only :(

The other stuff... I'll slowly amass as time goes on, with trickle-in funds. At $20/game, my primary list is $500 alone! I'll obtain 1 per week or so for now; this week is Lufia and SoM. Of course I'll be raiding Good Will and the flea markets for $1-$5 games too.

You must MUST MUST MUST get this game!

That's as ol' school badass as it gets, my friends!

The controls feel kind of off when compared to the other Contra titles, and the top-down levels were downright awful. You'd be a lot better off with Hard Corps.

I never had a problem with the controls. I am also playing it right now, thanks to this thread. Awesome game.
