Overlooked SNES games
Here are my other picks:
It's a shooting platforming game much like Contra but a really bad one. The reason I like it is because it's such an easy game. The bullets move really slow, the enemies walked very slow and the last boss is a piece of cake. So if you've ever been frustrated with games that are excruciatingly difficult and want to play an easier game, this is for you.
Believe it or not, Inspector Gadget is an amazing game. The platforming is solid and the weapons you have are ridiculously fun to use. The only that sucks is the lack of a password system. Thank god for unlimited continues.
I love this game. It's such a pleasure to play with a friend. Arcade style at its best.
An interesting game thanks to its storyline and range of characters. Even though the controls can be a little confusing and the gameplay is repetitive, it has that distinctive style that made it look more mature than the other games out there at the time.
I loved MMPR and I loved this game too. The SNES version followed the source material really well and delivered a satisfying platforming game. The biggest letdown was the lack of a second player feature.
I have plenty more SNES games to include but these will do for now. :) I love the SNES!
" @PrivateIronTFU said:Well, this isn't the "best games on the SNES" thread, but "overlooked SNES games." So these are good, but not fantastic games. In general, I would say that each era of gaming has had their fantastic and had their mediocre games; no one era is better than another." This thread is confirming my belief that games are better now. "Totally agree. I understand the appeal of retro games, but they certainly aren't definitively better than what we have now. "
Also thought I'd throw another overlooked game out there. I've been playing Robotrek, it's a pretty unique little RPG.
" @extremeradical: Out of the Kirby games I've played, Dream Land 2 is my favorite. Super Star was pretty good, but I didn't like the great cave adventure game... or whatever that one was called. "The Great Cave Offensive. It was my second favourite after Milky Way Wishes.
As for me playing the game itself? Maybe someday. I know it's trippy, nonsensical and charming, I know the combat isn't all that great, and I know the final boss is probably an aborted fetus or something. It just hasn't interested me enough for me to go out of my way to find it or play it. It's up there with Super Metroid on my imaginary "Games I probably should play, but haven't gotten around to doing so" list. Except Super Metroid is on the Virtual Console, so I could actually buy it right now if I wanted to.
im pretty sure you missed a few ,
top gear 3000
top gear 2
top gear , -these were awsome racing games , very rare the last one is , i had a heck of a time trying to locate a cheap copy ,
and since i got 183 or so games its quite hard for me to run through a big list of them but there was alot of over looked games, thats simple to do when the library is as big as it is, in fact the wii is another example of a system with alot of overlooked games because people are afriad to try them , and since this is the snes board i think its appropriate to list some good ones along side these
super mario world
zombies ate my nieghbors
stunt race fx
the lion king
mega man series
yoshi s island
just some of the ones i still play today along side top gear and super mario is missing
ill tell you guys one developer to watch out for to ,
LJN -youll know their logo when you see it its a rainbow of many colors and whats behind that rainbow most certainly is not gold ill tell you that , ive played 4 ljn games in my life and all 4 of them sucked, they are famous for games like friday the 13th nes , and a whole host of other movie based games, then theres the wrestling games , and super crash dummies, each one of these things are poorly thought out , especally the wrestling games, its to repetitive each character does the same moves over and over , and crash dummies just your generic platforming game that incredibilly can desquise it self just by looking at the title youll think its some sort of driving game, but in reality your treated to a big pile of trash
