Battletoads is surprisingly good. I wasn’t expecting much from this game but I’ve always been a fan of the isometric view beat’em ups. They are usually fun games. Because Battletoad is similar in mechanics to games like Golden Axe and Streets of Rage it sometimes feeling a little silly with all it’s animal characters. It doesn’t pull it off the cute charm as well as something like Starfox does but I am nitpicking. This is a good solid game. Even though this copy is in Excellent condition it is expensive. If you can get your hands on it for $20 plus shipping it’s an easy call but to pay more you need to enjoy the collecting as much as playing the games.
After Burner II is one of those games that rocked your world if you were around when it was new. It was all about the graphics and fast, smooth, intense action. I remember loving the complete 360 rolls and getting missile lock on a rows of enemy fighters and firing off those kick-butt heat seeking rockets. These days games like After Burner II, Space Harrier, Galaxy Force, Outrun, etc are just for those of us who remember and enjoyed these games when they were cutting edge. The game is still OK but I don’t think it’s going to impress anyone anymore. But regardless, I am very happy to have this Very Good condition copy in my collection.
Sangokushi II is yet another Japanese language dependent game that I will never be able to play. But it’s in Very Good condition and it was also very cheap. Welcome to TheSegaCollection Sangokushi II 🙂
Battletoads – $48.00
After Burner II – $7.00
Sangokushi II- $5.00
Plus about $4 in shipping for all. So that’s just over $21 per game.
*Shipping isn’t that cheap for 3 games. They came with a few more games that I’ll post later. $4 is just the per game cost.
