    I used to think this version was pointless to play since I already had it on Genesis but I have been playing it recently and the changes make it more strategic in some ways. The slowdown bugs me a bit but otherwise I quite like it.

    Oops. I pasted it in the wrong spot.

    I booted up Super GnG and the other two Gng on Capcom Classics Collection after reading this thread.

    I couldn't beat the first level.

  3. Great Thread...

    GnG is my favorite series of all time, & it's not even close.

    The Genesis/Arcade game plays better than all the rest.

    In Ghouls' N Ghosts, the music, the flow of the levels, the ambience, and the gameplay are as close to video game perfection as I've encountered in a 2D side/scroller. I can play that game over & over, and not tire of it. That is a rarity for me...

    Also, the nostalgia factor is through the roof in this series, as GnG was the first game I bought for the Genesis bakc in February of 1990. I stayed up all night playing with my friend, and the game kicked our ass's something fierce that first night.

    The Saturn Capcom Generations game is a phenomenal upgrade from the Genesis version, and near perfect port of the arcade game. I love this version because the difficulity is higher, and the boss battles play out a little differently. (different patterns etc.) I'm glad I finally picked it up a few years ago.

    The SNES game has superior graphics & sound to it's Genesis cousin, and is longer, but the lack of the vertical shooting (up & down) and massive slowdowns really detracted from the overall game. I haven't met anyone who's liked the annoying raft/ocean level. I don't care for it, because you can't go at your own pace, but that's a minor issue.
    But still a very solid game, and the snow level (the music/graphics) is spectacular.

    The NES game was my albatross, until I finally finished it in the year 2000 after having given up on back in 1987 when I was a kid. Now I can finish it easily.

    I'm still trying to finish The Genesis game without dying once, the best i've done is three deaths. My friend and love to do the 2 player mode, to see who can finish it first.
    The Snes game is lacking the two player option for some reason. I hope the new UG&G has a two player option, but doubtful seeing as it's a handheld game.

    Thanks for the heads up on the master system version, for some reason i've never thought to even try it, as i always assumed it just a severely watered down version of the Genesis game. I may have to pick this version up, and dust off my master system converter.

    I also had no idea there were so many different versions of this game on various PC systems & such. Those primite graphics are very interesting to see.
    It's too bad that remake in 2000 got canned (it looks good), I remember ECM mentioning it in an issue of gamefan. He said there was a game waiting to be released, but guess it encountered legal hassles.

    *You left out the GnG mini game on SNKMOTM for the NGPC. It's a simple & fun little side game where you jump back & forth picking up treasures, avoiding the demons that bob up & down.

    One last thought...
    I've never undertand why this series wasn't held in higher regard. Like the Castlevania, & Mega Man games etc.

    I'm guessing many gamers are put off by the higher difficulty, especially in the original. It's a shame this series doesn't garner the attention I feel it deserves.

    Ultimate GnG looks off the charts. I showed three of my friends the trailer, and they all said the same thing I did. "Looks like I have to get a PsP now".
    Is there an adapter to play PsP games through the TV?? I don't like handhelds at all. But for this game, I'll be damned sure to make an exception.

    Thanks for the GnG appreciation thread, very well done...

    Ghouls'N Ghosts=Greatest game known to mankind

  4. My cousin and I were playing Super G&G on CCC. We(I) managed to get past the boss, and then found out we had to do everything again. We both said "fuck that" and turned it off. I await Ultimate G&G.

  5. The Sinclair Spectrum 48k version was waaaaay better than the Commodore 64 version, disregarding the music.

  6. Great thread Neo, I think I'm gonna pick up Capcom Generation 2. Any differences between the PS and Saturn versions?

    There are two different ones that I know of. One is a permanent connection(PSP2TV) that I'm sure has superior quality and lets you use a PS2 controller and the other is an attachment that hooks to the face of the PSP and displays its image on the TV(Blaze). I've read mixed reviews on Blaze.

    yeah i always get around to trying these games every so often but i really suck at them as well.

  9. I never enjoyed these 'classic' arcade games at all. The action seemed very random, unpredictable, slow and annoying; and you could only do those farty little jumps. Any home ports I played had the same problem.

  10. I only played the NES version of Ghosts 'N Goblins, and couldn't get past the 3rd stage.
