I feel Zelda II was just a couple years too soon. With slightly tighter controls and combat it could have been so much better.

>> No.2821978

Yeah, the ideas are solid, but the execution needed some polish. Still a fun game, all things considered, but a slightly later release date and a bit more time spent developing the game would have made the reception of Zelda 2 a bit more favorable.

>> No.2822680

I honestly can't think of anything too wrong with the game. The controls and combat were fine to me; it was just enemies that needed better fine tuning in some parts. And I was gonna lament the fact that the overworld was kinda sparse, and exploration could be a bit esoteric at times, but when you think about it, all that fits perfectly into the aesthetic of the game.

I never been a fan of either Super Shinobi game. The first one was too clunky for me (although I can understand why early Genesis adopters were so enamored with it), while Super Shinobi II is just too easy for me.

The original arcade Shinobi games and Shadow Dancer on the Genesis are where it's at for me. The Game Gear Shinobi games were kinda cool too with their Mega Man-like gimmick.

Playing it is so satisfying. Both acts of stage 4 are probably my favorite bit of the game, shame the fire wheel boss was so dumb (it's only kind of dangerous, and there's no reason you can just bounce off the giant spinning wheel of fire).

oh, and the game hands lives out like candy for some reason (if you stick to a wall during the bonus stages, you're almost certainly going to get 3UPs every time, and then the stages are littered with 2UPs and shit)

I think that the 2d zeldas were better, and the best out of all of them was Link's awakening. Great story, AMAZING dungeons, and fine tuned zelda mechanics.

Supposedly because it diverged so much from the established formula. Nevermind the fact that it's the second game in the entire franchise and no real formula was set in stone at that time. But that's the answer that's usually given.

My fav as well. Loved the look and the way the shadows worked! Was very impressed the first time I played. Stage 5 is a bit of a let down(not to mention my least favorite) after how great 4 was.

I have not played the 3ds version(would probably help if I owned one) but I do still own the Genesis version. Just to clear things up, I wasn't saying Revenge is unplayable due to the controls. Just that it's stiff and slow when compared to SD(and S3 but that's an unfair comparison). Still love the game and still rank it very high compared to other Shinobi games. GOAT boss battles also.
