Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers

ssf00.png
Capcom 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES, Amiga (AGA)

Definitely a true classic - it's the one and only fighting game. I decided to review this part of the series because somehow it brought the 2D-fighting game to perfection. Some years after the quite amateurish slot-machine game 'Streetfighter' the second part appeared for every existing computer system, even for the then already aged C64. After a short time the 'Turbo'-version came out and also the 'SuperStreetfighter II'-version, which I'm going to review here.


Super Tennis

Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

One thing before: I am, presumably like 99, 997% of humanity, not a tennis fan. Actually I detest tennis. Now the reader asks: "Why the hell does this guy write a review of a tennis game?" I am an employee at a public service und therefore working in several offices from time to time. There you have - you can easily imagine - a lot of time to fritter away. What are you doing then? That's right! Gaming! But what? Everyone who has ever spent eight hours playing Minesweeper or Solitaire knows that there are more refreshing games. Other games like Counterstrike that enforce themselves in huge network (2000 computers) are unsuitable either, if you don't want to surprise your boss with sudden "Yeah!!! Head shot!!!" interjections...


Superstar Ping-Pong

Silvertime 1986
Genre: Sport
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

First there was ping-pong. Then it got more 'official' and was called table tennis. Then nothing happened. And people waited for another evolution. But they really had to wait for a long time! Until the late 20th century to be exact. Then the messiah arrived: Pong! It took the basic ping- pong concept to whole new heights by adding an artificial opponent and making it all digital.


Supreme Ruler: Cold War

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Supreme Ruler: Cold War – the title doesn't tell a lot; though if I now mention that you can wage the 3rd World War with nuclear weapons and that one of the goals is conquering and smashing all communist countries of the world, it should get quite interesting, shouldn't it? ;)


Survival Kids

Konami 1999
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Game Boy

You wake up in a deserted isle, during a storm the ship where you was sank and now that you are alone and lost you should learn how to survive.

Survival games usually have two main points, getting food and water and making tools, both here are key points of the game.


Suspect

Infocom 1984
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Yet another case of murder in yet another feudal mansion. And yet another time, it's up to you to solve the case before time runs out. Only this time, there's a twist to the usual procedure: You're not the police detective called to the scene of crime, but the main suspect. It all began with an invitation from Veronica Ashcroft to her annual Halloween costume party. What a chance to write an article for your paper about this event of the high society!


Sweet Home

System: NES

Mamiya Ichirou created a series of frescos that attracted many people to her abandoned and lost in the middle of the forest house. A place that obviously is damned and owned by her victim searching ghost.


Sword of Aragon

SSI 1989
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Sword of Aragon is one of the most underrated games ever. This game has the full right to be listed among the top ten games of all times, yet I have never seen it listed at all. At a time when games offer flashy graphics and very simplistic and inadequate gameplay, Sword of Aragon shines as an immortal gem. This game does not require the same level of graphics and sound to be interesting: it combines complex economy, diplomacy and tactical combat in one neat package, reinforced by a very simple interface. It offers very complex and lengthy gameplay, yet the learning curve is very low. Overall, the game, is the pure essence of excellent design end execution.


Sword of Destiny

Gremlin Graphics 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4

Back in the Eighties, Sword Of Destiny was one of the first computer games I played. After putting the cassette into the slightly damaged drive, you had to push down the play button and the cap all the time to avoid a crash during the process of loading. The longer the screen glimmered like a rainbow gone mad, the more the excitement grew. Finally it began: Down into the catacombs!


Sword of the Samurai

Microprose 1989
Genre: Action, RPG, Strategy
Rating: 5/6

System: PC

This is basically my favourite game of all times. It's easy to get fooled by the simplicity, but the simplicity is the ultimate sophistication is it not?

You control one of the contenders to become a local daimyo and later a shogun of Japan. That's the basic gist, but the amount of methods to achieve these goals are simply staggering. Well not really staggering, but there is A LOT of variation to a couple of game sequences you constantly engage in.
