For a total of ten bucks, it's a great idea to invest in the complete StarTropics experience on Virtual Console. Giving us the first game in the year's first update and the second in the last was a nice way to bookend 2008, Nintendo. Well done.
StarTropics II is a great game - But while it fixes problems from the original, it introduces new ones! One of the biggest ones is the addition of pitfalls - On a few of the overworlds, you will occassionally stumble into invisible pits (They are in set locations, not random) and land in a mini-dungeon you have to fight your way out of. In fact, the game even begins with a few of these! Overall, the game is still very enjoyable and worth your money, but it doesn't beat the original.
Startropics is never going to be regarded as a leading light of its genre, but there's plenty here if you're in the mood.
