Sega's Midwest design team obviously had a great desire to keep the game faithful to the original Neo Geo version, but this could be a case where the Genesis hardware just couldn't do the game justice - especially when you consider that the original game is 82-meg and this cartridge is a mere 16. Maybe a Sega CD conversion could compete.
The Super NES version was a good Neo Geo reproduction, but this one completely misses! The action is incredibly slow (and a bit choppy) and the voices are horrendous! All the fighters are still there, but the fun isn't.
In conclusion, World Heroes is an average fighting game at best. It doesn’t do much to tinker with the Street Fighter 2 formula except for the inclusion of the death match option and once you’ve mastered each character’s normal and special attacks you can expect to finish the game in about fifteen to twenty minutes each time around. If you’ve played every other fighting game on the Genesis and are willing to overlook some of its flaws, World Heroes is a decent game to play if you can find an inexpensive copy.
If you like beat up on a poor, defenseless CPU, go ahead and play these Heroes. If not, there's a good Neo Geo games called World Heroes.
