MARBLE MADNESS (MD - WEST 'EA' vs JAP 'TENGEN') - WHICH IS BEST?

Postby Zeusdaz » Fri May 19, 2017 12:15 am

Hi everyone and welcome to the May 2017 of Which Is Best?
(All previous episodes here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... Qy_y29bGub).

Last month I placed two of the most famous remembered games of the ZX Spectrum,...Chuckie Egg vs Manic Miner which no doubt challenged your loyalties to the max (Zeus's sick way of fun) and it was all down to the votes on the WOS site which were heavily in favour of Manic Miner although they all loved Chuckie Egg also but it was those votes that pushed Manic Miner to the winning line with 51 votes to Chuckie Egg's 37 votes, Chuckie was actually well ahead to begin with until the voters at WOS site had their say,...I'm a little bit gutted I have to say as Chuckie Egg was one of my fondest gaming memories, anyway great edition!

This month I place two versions of Marble Madness on the Megadrive / Genesis system against each other,....the Western version by Electron Arts and the Japanese version by Tengen, which would you prefer to have in your collection if you are a Marble Madness fan?!, which is the better conversion?!,...only you can decide that, happy voting!
Oh yes, the time cheat was used to show all of both versions and YES i know I'm not very good at them lol.

Well, I'm not some English teacher or even good in it much, but why you use word "best" when compare 2 things ? Wouldn't be simple "better" more appropriate ?
I'm here to discuss. To say what I think, share my experiences. That means not that I will not complain when someone claims that Moon is square. Will complain when someone jumps in without reading carefully what is written. Ah, and don't ask from me something you can self do easily - like search :D

Japanese version definitely, that's nigh-on arcade accurate!
