Turrican vs Turrican II - WHICH IS BEST?

Hi everyone and welcome to the February 2017 edition of the Which Is Best?
Last month I placed Silkworm and Swiv against each other and after a mega battle with the votes I can announce Silkworm nailed the victory with 43 votes with Swiv claiming just 28.
This month I'm going to place the two mighty Amiga Turrican shooters side by side,...which do you think is the better shooter?!, only your votes will determine that,...happy voting! :-D

Gameplay wise, I Prefer Turrican 1
Graphics wise, I think Turrican 2 is better
Soundwise Turrican 2

you forgetting about turrican 3? that was was quite good, but not a patch on the 1st two

overall i would have to go with turrican 2 due to better graphics and music, and the fact that from the up/down scrolling levels on turrican 1 it often got bugged out graphics making it hard to see what you were doing

used to be fun trying and complete all 3 turricans in 1 night, think took about 3-4hrs if went around collecting all the hidden extra lives and diamonds

Turrican 2 was a masterpiece which improved on the original which was a decent game also.

I finished all the Turrican games 100x Times ( best ist still Turri 1 & 2 )

But i have to say that for me Turrican 2 is the more "complete package" , and i will never forget the sudden Shoot´em up Sequence, and the new "hidden blocks Gameplay introduction" in 4.1 right after the shoot em up sequence.

Brilliance, thats how you teach youre player new things, DEVELOPERS, take a note !!!
Thats how a "tutorial" should be !!!


Anyway, my favorite game . Turri2 FTW ( man , i love turri 1 too... but if i had to choose.. turri2 )

I can't decide as both were great. Turrican 3 should have rope AND beam rotation weapon.

Zeusdaz: Why not just add a poll at the top of your post? Turrican 2 for me, probably the best ever Amiga game (and music)

It's funny, Although I believe and voted T2 is the best, I think I've played T1 more then T2 in recent times. Probably more for nostalgic reasons.

T1. It has better gameplay, prettier graphics and more catchier tunes than T2.

Because it was being taken advantage of, certain people were casting 2 votes,...one on the poll and one in these comments,...NOT ALLOWED!
It caused me a big headache to count the votes so I will state in these words right now "THE POLL VOTES AT THE TOP WILL NOT BE COUNTED, ONLY THE COMMENT VOTES WILL COUNT".
Besides, when leaving a comment it get's others joining in for nostalgia & retro chat

If you started a poll from the beginning of the thread then all you'd need to say is that only poll entries will be counted.

...or if you started a poll afterwards just mention the above again i.e. only poll entries will be counted.

Done, not difficult really

Hi bud, registered your vote on the Youtube video
Yes I also feel more love for T1, I remember completing it for the first time and my mates didn't believe me, I had to invite them round to replay and prove I could do it,...which I did and they were gutted because I was the first but at the same time nodded in respect

T2 was too easy, maybe it was because I was so good at T1 that the sequel came natural, I completed it just a few hours after I bought the original on It's release date!

T3,...don't even go there, where were you Manfred Trenz???

Turrican 2 of course. It improves everthing from the good but not perfect predecessor. T3 was too linear, designed for the console market (and the plasma rope is crap).

Yeah but as I mentioned I love hearing thoughts and stories about the discussion in hand, I'm sure if I said poll votes only count then I have a feeling that one click of a button is all will happen resulting in shorter discussions between members,...It get's everyone more involved and chatty this way

People can still vote and have discussions

I'd imagine that's what most people do, see the Dizzy's 30th Anniversary! - Which Dizzy game do you remember playing? thread for example...

There's no rule saying that if you vote you can't comment

Very difficult. Because Both T1 and T2 are masterpieces, from the sound to the graphics, never mind the playability.

personally, i love them both equally......
