Buy this or that: Virtual Console - Castlevania Adventure or Mystical Ninja?

#1WickedSickJoshPosted 2/17/2013 11:29:58 PM
I got $3.36 in my account and I was thinking of picking up a cheap gameboy game. I'm debating between "Castlevania: The Adventure" or "Mystical Ninja starring Goemon".

Castlevania is always fun but the preview video makes it look really really slow. That makes it look kinda lame. I've never played a Mystical Ninja game before but I often hear good things about the series. The preview video makes it look kind of like Final Fantasy Adventure for the gameboy, which would be cool because I love that game. But before I buy anything I'd like a little input from you guys. What do you think?

Castlevania Adventure was never really all that good to begin with, and has not aged very well either, so ignore that as an option.

This, it' only worth is maybe the novelty of owning a bad game.

Yikes. I guess I'll stay away from that then. What about Mystical Ninja?

I was initially going to recommend starring Goemon earlier before I remembered you would not be talking about the N64 game.

And the N64 game still is not on the Virtual Console. A shame :(

That Goemon is the worst domestically released Goemon title, which is sad because Europe got the first GB Goemon colourised on Konami GB Collection Vol. 3. But no all the US got was this crappy one.
