just trying to track a PC version down, if its half as good as the amiga version I'll be addicted to it.
the speed, the skill, the violence ......... great as a 1 player game, awsome as a 2 player game
the Competition Pro joysticks were built for the level of agrression put through them during playing this game, but still needed a rebuild every so often after a microswitch stopped working due to the abuse it had recieved.
a shufty round amazon reveals a PC version .... but no reviews.
and a PS2 update called speedball 2100 which recieves mixed reviews
PC would require investment in a suitable joystick, I could never play it on anything but a Competition Pro style joystick .... though the PS2 gamepad would just about get by, but wouldn't last more than a few months of playing it I reackon.
Don't know how anyone can pick a football management simulation as a greatest ever computer game myself to be honest ???
Greatest computer and video games of all time as far as this player goes are...
Doom (total shocker when it first came out) Elite (simply awesome) Sonic The Hedgehog (mind-blowingly addictive) Medal of Honour (though now eclipsed by Call of Duty) Counter-Strike (Still the most played FPS on the Internet)
Doom, well the graphics were better but the game play was the same as Wolfenstein 3D
was never a fan of sonic ... not a great fan of the genre
Medal of Honour is very good game (but its the graphics, and sounds that make it better than other 1st person shoot em ups) the realism of the scenarios, its like being in a war film. not played Call of Duty yet, need new graphics card..and its not at top of my must get list at the minute
played Elite 2 on the amiga, but never got into it, prefered Wing Commander
Pushover (Amiga 600) Sonic The Hedgehog (Mega Drive) Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Mega Drive) FIFA 95 (Mega Drive) Tetris (Game Boy) Super Mario Kart (SNES) Final Fantasy VII (Playstation) Brian Lara Cricket (Playstation)
I wouldn't like to know the number of hours I've spent playing that lot.
I've done about 200 or so hours on FFVII, 30 on FFVIII, 5 on FFIX, 2 on FFX and none on FFX-2 which my brother bought on Friday and hasnt stopped playing on since. The main bird in it wears a low-cut top and uses a gun...which are the only differences from FFX that I can see from afar...
Thats on about 3 or 4 different games. My longest one (about 90 hours) still has me on the first disk. I can't remember why I'm doing it (just running around fighting) now but it probably has something to do with money or items or....oh I dunno. I haven't played on it for about a year or so either.
Bart vs. the Space Mutants was one of my all time favourites on both the NES and Amiga. Did you ever get round to Bart's Nightmare on the SNES, JR? - just about topped Bvs.TSM with a live action Itchy and Scratchy level.
Still can't beat the NES originals, Castlevania, Metroid, Kid Icarus, Megaman and the very first Legend of Zelda.
Early computer games, Green Beret, Jackal, Mickey, Double Dragon and the Dizzy series on the Spectrum 128K
Never would have had Smudge down as a Sonic the Hedgehog fan though
i am a computer nut and the best game ever was HALO on the xbox i have never been engroused in a game like that the twists and the story is great can;t wait for HALO 2 which is out soon any one with a xbox must surely appreciate the greatness of HALO
Wow...forgot all about "Bart's Nightmare" Gareth. The Itchy and scratchy level...yep remember it.
Thing with "Bart's vs Space Mutants" was that level 5 was so easy, the radioactive donuts. Actually did it first go but wasn't sure what I did!!!! The level with the jumps onto the ledges was soooooo hard.
