Shanghai II sur Genesis a beaucoup plus de choses à offrir que les autres, mais il ne le fait pas toujours très bien. Le style graphique est tellement enfantin et dépassé qu'on a du mal à le tolérer, tout comme les menus Macintosh années 80, les chargements, les ralentissements, tous aussi inadmissibles les uns que les autres. Les musiques ne sont pas très fines non plus, mais l'essentiel est qu'on arrive à faire des paires, n'est-ce pas ? Et au fond, on peut le dire: ouf, le plaisir made in Shanghai est toujours présent.
As a more casual puzzle game, Shanghai is rather simplistic but nevertheless pretty addictive. It is one of those games that constantly tickles the urge of giving it just one more try. Since there isn’t any time limit, gameplay is more relaxed and thus less engaging than in other puzzle games, like Columns or Doctor Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine. But this calm, laid-back way of playing definitely has its own charm. This is a nice little game for all ages that anyone can simply pick up and play – and before you know it, you may already have sunk an hour or more into it. For a console port, this version turned out pretty well – even if you’ll probably turn the music off after a while.
