a great collection, despite a misleading claim on the box
1 March 2011
Summary: I have been a fan of fighting games for a long time --- although they seem to have pretty much fallen out of style, at least compared to how popular they once were --- and this is a great collection. I had played World Heroes 2 on the Super NES, but I never owned any version of it until I got this collection, and I had never played any versions of the other three games. They all have shades of Street Fighter II about them, but how many fighting games don't?
Summary: To me double, triple, & quadruple counting the same characters that are on all 4 games etc is borderline false advertising. That said here are the characters that are in it. The following are on World Heroes I: Hanzo (think Ryu) Fuuma (think Ken) Dragon (think Bruce Lee/Fee Long) Janne (Fencer) Erik the Viking Muscle Power (basically Hulk Hogan) Brocken (think mechanical Bison) Rasputin In addition to the above, the following are on World Heroes II: Captain Kidd (Pirate)...

Summary: Although I kicked myself when I found this game at a cheaper price in stores, I have practiced on this one so I am somewhat good at it. But, it is not easy to beat, even on the easiest level of difficulty I still had a hard time, particulary with Mudman on WH2.
Summary: This is a great collection for any fighting game fan out there to own. After playing a couple of the original gamse (World Heroes and World Heroes 2) when they were originally released, it's nice to have the entire series on one disk.
Summary: When I first started playing this game, it was on the SNES system back in the early 90's. At that time, I saw these games for what they were. SNK was trying to compete with Capcom. It wasn't on the same level as Street Fighter 2 but I wanted to try something different. With that said, this game is very entertaining! The Death Matches in parts 1 and 2 are unique and not seen on any other 2d fighter. Now, I only had access to World Heroes 1 and World Heroes 2 via SNES.
Summary: back in 1994 i bought world heros 2 for my snes.i still have it in the closet some where.back in 1994 i would have given world heros 2 4 stars.the death match and see saw life bar was great and even the fact that you could mask the see saw life bar was even better.masking would cover the bar up so you just fought to the finish having no idea of you life gauge.but now in 2009 you can only see this game for what it really was and that was a knock off of the great games of...
Summary: Strangely, I don't recall some of these World Heroes games being this difficult. Thankfully, you can change the difficulty on this port! You can also change the color on your character, the music, and practice those hard to perform combos in practice mode. I'm not a big World Heroes fan, but I love SNK NeoGeo! Any true fan will need to have this title in their library.
Summary: Not a bad game but some aspects it seems they were rushing to get this game completed when it came out years ago. The game play is all wrong and the controls are not on point at times. needs a fully overhaul to compete with street fighter, the best 2D fighter ever.
Summary: I've played "World Heroes" series at the arcade. And burned many quarters to reach the end of each version with two or three of my most favorite charaters, Now in the present I no lorger have to pay, and now I could see every characters ending. The game appears to be ARCADE PERFECT ports of each game which I REALLY WANT out of these old school compiliations. Controls alittle off because it's setup is based on the PS2 dualshock controller.
