  • LAST RESORT Take on hordes of enemies in the popular futuristic shooter.

  • SAMURAI SHODOWN The first title in SNK's hugely popular weapons based fighter.
  • SENGOKU Fight the undead, in feudal Japan.

"In the Arcade, the addictive quality of these games ensured that the money in your pocket didn't last long. Now the only difficulty is deciding which game to play first."

a) I'm not into much Neo Geo stuff
b) the best of them are already on VC.

BUT positive
a) they don't take the space of all the Neo Geo games in your RAM
b) they probably are cheaper if you want to get a load of them then on VC.

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

METAL SLUG (nothing beats the Neo version)

SAMURAI SHOWDOWN (a true classic gem)

MAGICIAN LORD (good fun game, but bad art)


BASEBALL STARS 2 (best Baseball game available on Wii)

Are good games, the rest are dull crap by todays standard. I am so getting this on import for my PSP. WiFi Portable Showdown! Smilie

Only interested in Samurai Showdown and Metal Slug and I already have MS Anthology.

Well if you already have that compilation you should pass, also pass on Samurai Showdown and wait till the Anthology of that comes out in Autumn. (all 6 games) I only bought it on VC because I couldn\'t bare the wait.

I am passing on this after hearing about emu issues with the PSP game (bas souund). I will now Just wait for SS Anthology on PSP and Wii at the fall.
