Super Play's Guide to SNES Online Empty
PostSubject: Super Play's Guide to SNES Online   Super Play's Guide to SNES Online EmptyWed 20 May 2020 - 21:48

With more titles added to SNES Online on the Switch, I wanted to put all the Super Play content relating to these games in an area we can reference.

Enjoy!


Brawl Brothers (Japanese copy reviewed under the name Rushing Beat Run)

"Beat-em-up which is nice to look at, but boring to play."

Review:
 

Breath of Fire

"The Super Play cover was better than the game, but it remains an absorbing, if repetitious on occasion, RPG. Hmm."

Review:
 

Breath of Fire II

"Although it has undeniable flaws, if you're a hardcore pointy-hat BOF2 is an essential purchase."

Review:
 

Demon's Crest (known in Super Play as Demon Blazon)

"Show-stopping graphics and a great bulging sack full of neat touches in a game that's a teeny bit too easy."


Review:
 

F-Zero

"Fast and smooth racing game with bland scenery."

Review:
 

Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics

"The graphics are jolly, by jingo, and the jungly caperings entertaining, but...there's...something...missing."

Review:
 

Kirby's Tea Shop (Kirby's Dream Course)

"Er, sorry, that's Tee Shot, actually. It's an odd little golf-type game for odd little gamesplaying people."

Review:
 

Kirby's Dream Land 3

This came out in 1997, after the magazine closed. Pretty sure it wasn't reviewed by N64 Magazine either.

Kirby Super Deluxe (Kirby Super Star)

"Slick, colourful and addictive with a difficulty curve just the wrong side of easy. Another platform masterpiece."

Review:
 

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

"The definitive adventure game."

Review:
 

Operation Logic Bomb (Japanese title Fortress of Fury reviewed)

"Nice graphics, but slow and unimaginative gameplay."

Review:
 

Panel de Pon

"Brimming with options, heady with playability and steeped in challenge - this turns minutes into hours into days."

Review:
 

Pilotwings

"Looks good and is a test for hand-eye co-ordination."

Review:
 

Pop n Twin Bee

"Ultra-cute blaster with rather weak gameplay."

Review:
 

Smash Tennis

"Polished four-player sim with limited controls."

Review:
 

Starwing

"Absolutely brilliant 3-D shooter. Get it!"

Review:
 

Stunt Race FX (Japanese copy reviewed under the name Wild Trax)

"The most playable and varied racing game ever."

Review:
 

Super Earth Defence Force

"Pretty shoot-em-up with some boring gameplay."

Not actually reviewed, this quote is from Issue 24's "What Cart?" section.

Super Ghouls and Ghosts

"Brilliant graphics (with slow-down), but it's frustrating."

Review:
 

Super Mario Kart

"Four-games-in-one racer, with great two-player mode."

Review:
 

Super Mario World

"Repetitive backgrounds, but awesome challenge."

Review:
 

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

"Yoshi takes the lead in what at first appears to be the best Mario game yet. It's certainly close between this and Super Mario World."

Review:
 

Super Metroid

"This is the reason Gunpei Yokoi still holds his head high after the disappointing Virtual Boy. Buy this game. Buy two copies."

Review:
 

Super Punch-Out!!

"Original and surprisingly top boxing game! Cartoony looks and plenty of skills needed to overcome a variety of opponents."

Review:
 

Super Puyo Puyo 2

Not reviewed.

Super Soccer

"Enjoyable, but flawed, sim with impressive graphics."

Review:
 

Super Tennis

"Amazing range of shots and lots of tournaments too."

Review:
 

Wild Guns

"A target-led blaster with neat touches."

Cheers fella! There's some interesting history here (why are Kirby games getting 6-page reviews for a start, SP's insistence on referring to everything by its Japanese title).

Hopefully when games get added, the post can be edited accordingly.

Fantastic! Thanks for this. I particularly enjoy the F-Zero explaining how easy it is to just "whack it into Mode 7", I bet the programmers would have loved reading that Laughing

I'll read more as and when I get the chance.

Agreed, this is amazing work! Thought it makes me massively miss the glory days of printed magazines. Crying or Very sad

I've not even read it yet and I want to thank Mr. Jones! I'm going to go back and read that all properly.

Aye top stuff! I'll definitely read some of these reviews, probably starting with those games that were recently added to the Switch online SNES app.

Quality contribution gjones! I had a look at a couple of them - the Zelda review was a solid wee read. Thumbs Up!

I'll work through the rest and pop back to this thread from time to time. Grin

Good to hear! Dance I think it has already been useful - I played Operation Logic Bomb and it felt so slow and cumbersome. I figured it must have been great at the time, but no, Super Play felt the same way!
