I think Green Beret does deserve a decent redo...

Feedback was a crap.

I remember that I read a review from MSX-CLUB and it said it's a wondeful papanese game. I bought it and once I turn on my MSX and the game loaded I realized that those guys in MSX-CLUB were lying!!!

o.O Feedback is an amazing game. Loved it. Ok, the 'space-levels' suck arse, but mainly due to the insane 'music', the rest is very nice...

I never had a MSX in its golden ages (I played it at a friend's house), but one game that disappointed me a lot is Ultima 4 for MSX2. The Master System version was great (great tunes and graphics), one of the best. But it was played with a gamepad, what takes out a great element of the game that is having a lot of diferent commands and the guessing of names and holyword of virtues.

I thought a MSX2 version would have even better graphics, FM tunes and keyboard, as is with almost every RPG game in MSX compared to the SMS. But it was not the case. Cutscenes were made looking like a "more colored" spectrum, full of artifacts in the pictures. The FM tunes somehow managed to be worse than 4-channel SMS PSG. And they made the game on screen 5, with a completely choppy and very slow software scroolling. They simply made the game unplayable, and it costed 49000 yens.

Later I discovered that they got the X68000 version and made it run on MSX without any special adaptation, ignoring the diferent hardware. They were just using the license to earn even more UNFAIR money.

iirc those spacelevels did have music when not using fm-pac.

I told my friend at the time "it is a Konami game, you know how good Konami games are" boy we where disappointed.

I didnt say Nemesis 2 was a bad game, I was dissappointed by the scrolling that is all. I still play it on my TurboR or BlueMSX

That crazy noise of spacelevels when using FM, is NOT present in the original game: it sounds fairly ok. The problem arises only with certain crack of the game, widely spread since the early nineties, which has corrupted data in the disk sectors where that music should be stored.

BTW, I loved this game too Big smile It was one of the selected games I used to run for impressing Amiga folks, along with Aleste 2 or Valis II.

California games. We played it 'countless' hours on my friends C64, it's still great fun with my xbox...

I was so excited when I bought the Msx version, Yes finally I can practise all events at home!

Shit, I was disappointed when the cassette player got done with loading that piece of SHIT!!

That must be some of the worst software EVER sold for msx.
