Synopsis: Of the many ports of Ghouls 'n Ghosts, this one is the easiest even if it still difficult to beat in areas. If you want to know the differences from this port from the original and the Genesis ports then I'll show you (If you haven't played any version of this game then you should skip this part and head to the actual review):
1. There is a shopkeeper in this version that lets you buy armor, weapons, etc.
2. You don't need to get the gold armor to get magic power.
3. You actually have a life bar, which was dropped in Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts only to return in Maximo.
Game play: Similar to the arcade version only that you can change your direction mid-jump. Unfortunately, the two-player mode was ditched in this version, but the bosses are much easier.
Graphics: The sprite detail is good, but some of them lack animation and look rather crude. Not to mention Valkyr looks rather iffy. The backgrounds need improvement as well.
Music & Sound: Some of the tunes are good, but the instrumentation used can get quite annoying. The sound effects aren't worthy of recognition.
Originality: Barely any since this is a port.
This version of G'nG2 is alright, but it can never hold a candle to the arcade version. So if you are looking for something with some challenge, but not a lot; then you have found what you want.
