These are extras worth having, and bespeak the beauty of this more-than-a-port. The slowdown present in the original game is gone, there's no loading time at all, you’ve got more modes and more game…it’s a good time to be an SNK fan. There’s so much feeling to it, and the fantasy of exploration is very inspiring. The score matches this epic theme, being the most serious ever for the series. Well perhaps not serious, but…fitting. Nothing feels out of place here. Not even an elephant shooting a fireball. The one small trouble is the interlaced graphics, which are resized from the MVS resolution. It’s not overly noticeable, but there’s a bit of a ‘shimmer’ to some static scenes. It’s not enough to influence your appreciation of the game, particularly. It’s otherwise a fantastic revision of an already fantastic game.
