Götzendiener is a bit short and the controls sucks. Not really the best PCE CD game, but i like it too.

Street Fighter II on the 8bit PC Engine puts Super Street Fighter II Turbo on my 32bit Amiga to shame.

That's true. I bought the SF 2 HuCard game for a few bucks and it works great with my 6-Button PC-Engine pad. A great port of the arcade classic.

Yes all Street Fighter II games on Amiga suck, unfortunately. And not only comparing with PCE.

Street Fighter I on the Amiga is almost as good as the arcade original, though.

(I'd give the Arcade version a 3/10 and the Amiga version 2/10...)

Sorry, but the arcade version is playable, while the Amiga version is a jittery piece of unresponsive shit.

What ARE some of the best of the best PC Engine CD-games anyway? We might as well line 'em up and make a good top twenty while we're at it.

I'm a bit intrigued by this console now... Seems unreal that initially it outsold Nintendo and Sega, when I've never ever heard of it! Completely unknown in Sweden.

I only first heard of it a few years ago, in some short five-sentence article in a game-mag.

Here is a zip file of all my screenshots. Many of the screenshots are done by myself on Magic Engine, Medanfen, Ootake, and MorphGear.

All the PCEngineCD games add a few video sequences (with very little animation) and the CD was not necessary IMO.SegaCD achieved more success than the PCEngineCD,the SegaCD had good FMV games at least and two awesome games:Heart Of The Alien and Flink.

Both machines, the PCE-CD and Sega CD, have great games. Honestly, these lame FMV games sucks. The PCE-CD has games with a great soundtrack an some with english speech, titles like Sapphire or Dracula X really needs the CD medium.


Good Sega CD games are:

Lunar 1+2
Earthworm Jim SE
Dark Wizard
Lords of Thunder
Final Fight
Snatcher
Popful Mail
Shining Force CD
Keio the Flying Dragon
Robo Aleste
Flink
Vay

No single FMV game.

Yes,I forgot that important detail.I think that the PCEngine was a great machine with a miserly catalogue of games like other more modern consoles:Saturn,Dreamcast...

Well, there are probably more PC-Engine CD titles than Dreamcast games, if you don't count PAL+ NTSC Dreamcast versions of the same game. Sadly too many games were designed for the Japanese market (Mahjong, Dating etc.).

Anyway, there are tons of great games for this machine, if you like 2D shooter or RPG's.

The Saturn games range has two faces. The boring PAL and the much better NTSC side. Especially a lot of good Japanese 2D games, never released in Europe.

You're right - but the controls are awkward. Unlike any other fighting game (incl. SF2-4) you have to RELEASE a button to punch/kick/do a special move.
In the moment you push the button nothing happens - only when you release the button.

The reason being that initially there only was one push- and one kick-button that responded differently depending how hard you pushed them (light, medium, hard).

The game just isn't fun to play.

Btw., MUGEN-games usually suck - but there is this fanmade MUGEN-game (by some Mexicans) called Street Fighter One Upper:

http://www.freegamearchive.com/game.php?id=9720

This game is just as responsive as Street Fighter II, has super combos and you can play as every character (SF1 only had Ryu and Ken playable which were both the same character gameplaywise).
This is the only game I know of where you can play as Geki and Retsu. Joe, Mike, Lee, Birdie, Eagle, Gen, Adon, Sagat being the other characters.
As hidden (well, not that hard to find) bonus character there is also Cody (his Final Fight-sprite).


edit (in order to get On-Topic): "Street Fighter One Upper" uses the audio-tracks of the PC-Engine CD version "Fighting Street" (that was the name of Street Fighter for this console)...
