Here in Brazil I can say for sure that the Mega-Drive sold more than the SNES. I thought that was also true on USA.
"CastlaVania 4 & X (SNES) looked better than CastleVania Blood lines (Genesis) "
Yeah, but Bloodlines plays a WHOLE LOT BETTER than 4 or X. The action is a lot faster, more tense and manic.
"Super Turrican 1 & 2 Vs Mega Turrican "
Again, Mega Turrican plays much better than both Super Turrican games.
"Super Contra III Vs Contra Hard Corps "
Once more... this is even more absurd, Contra Hard Corps it's incredibly better than Super Contra III (I love Super Contra III, but it can't even close of Hard Corps).
"Super Ghouls & Ghosts completely kills Genesis Ghouls & Ghosts."
Well, ok, here I agree
And btw, I DOUBT, a LOT that the SNES could do something like Gunstar Heroes, Contra Hard Corps or Vectorman. Those games are just too FAST for the poor SNES to handle. Geez, I doubt the SNES could do even a Sonic a-like game!
I doubt the SNES couldn't handle the games you mentioned. If you play Sparkster on SNES you'll notice that's it's as fast as the Genesis version & Sonic (If not faster)
Also If you play these equevelant SNES games, you'll find that they're quite superior on the basic SNES hardware compared to the Genesis basic hardware.
Just a few examples:
Arabian Knights - Sabaku no Seirei Ou (J)
CastleVania - Vampire's Kiss
Contra III - The Alien Wars
Jim Powers - The Lost Dimension 3D
Judge Dredd (U)
Ninja Warriors Again
Pocky & Rocky
Pocky & Rocky 2
Rendering Ranger R2 (J)
Sunset Riders (U)
Super Shadow of the Beast
Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles IV - Turtles in Time
X-Men Mutant Apocalypse
X-Kaliber 2097 (U)
