Zillion 2: Tri Formation
COME ON PEOPLE!! this game was groooovy with four O's. how can you bash it like that? i had this game when it was new and never did own the first one (until VERY recently) so i was kinda unbiased when it came to comparing it against it's predecessor. i think one of the reasons everyone is tearing this game a new asshole is because it's just too hard for you impatient gamers who didn't want to take the time to master the game play. yeah this game was very tough, but that was one of the reasons i enjoyed it so much. OK, so it loses points for not implementing the key card & computer thingy that the 1st one had, but it was (and still is) a very graphically visionary portrayal of the future. NORSA drones are MUCH more creepy than Storm Troopers. the characters and their names were also rather spiffy! J.J., Apple, Champ, Barron Ricks....just plain cool daddy-o
this game is excellent in NEARLY every way. TRUE STORY!!!! when it first came out i was about 9 yrs. old with nothing better to do than perfect my ninja skills by beating this game. i figured:"this is for sure the coolest game in the world! the ending must be amazing!" so i spent the majority of the school year ignoring my homework and practicing Shinobi. when i wasn't practicing i was reading about ninjas and japanese history, culture etc. So when victory day comes (and i've driven myself past the point of insanity figuring out the tricks to beating that scary "Masked Ninja") i'm so pumped to see the ending....here it comes..drum roll.....GAME OVER
WHAT??? GAME OVER???? WHAT THE @%#$ KIND OF ENDING IS THAT????? DAMN YOU SEGA!!! you flawed a nearly perfect game in a REAL bad way. and i always did wonder why Musashi didn't have his ninja mask on in the game!?.......narcissism?
