Wild Guns SNES Vs. PS4

Postby VideoGameCritic » August 6th, 2017, 12:32 pm

I'm re-reviewing WIld Guns on the SNES so I can properly review Wild Guns Rebooted for the PS4.

It took me a while to figure out why I prefer the SNES version. I think the main thing is the controls. The PS4 digital pad can't hold a candle to the SNES. It was really obvious when I played both games back-to-back.

Next, the new features in Reloaded just aren't very good. Of the two new characters there's a dog with a remote-controlled drone that shoots for him and a fat woman who only tosses grenades. They aren't fun to play, and trying to play 4P at once is a confusing mess.

Still, you see more of each stage on the PS4, and it does record offline high scores for each skill level. So the PS4 version is not necessarily bad. Probably just average. Full reviews forthcoming.

Hey critic, picked this one up as well and I'm a bigger fan of the snes game over the ps4 version. It is cool they brought it back but there are a few things that make me lean towards the original:

1. The ps4 version is harder since you have much more screen to watch out for and the bomb no longer acts like a full equalizer. This tips the original careful balance slightly towards a more unfair approach.

2. multiplayer is actually harder because you have to completely start over on a game over.

I do like the new stages but you can never play all of them on one game since they are divided onto different difficulty levels. The new characters are cool but aren't needed. Fun and the graphics look great but I'll stick with the original 9 times out of 10.
