Bad ports are one thing. Every system had them. There still enough CPC exclusive games you can compare to similar C64 games. And the conclusion is still valid. Sure, the CPC had some nice games, even good Arcade ports like Bomb Jack or Arkanoid 2. But fast scrolling, action paced games? Nope, the CPC can't handle it properly. Despite the fact the computer lacks hires sprites or a decent sound chip.

The big CPC advantage was the fast CPU, so the isometric/vector games runs smoother as the C64 counterparts.
