Best one of the series!

I don't get why a lot of people didn't like this followup. Granted; they deviated a little from the org story and graphics. But I think it was for the best; as those aspects were actually improved. More importantly, gameplay itself. It has more complex levels, so it's longer and more meaningful. It's also slightly more difficult; which I think it further adds to it's enjoyment. So to make it clear; it does have way better graphics. And I'm assuming then that fans didn't like, the more realistic look; go figure. Always on the upside; there are more playable chars, with their own style and weapons; that are also more interesting and add to the already deep storyline. Even the "soundtrack" was much better that ever before. This is my favorite NES scrolling fighting game. I have played the previous two; and I thought that they were merely OK. The order in which they appeared certainly matches it's rating. Ie, the first being the worst; and this being the best. They surely pale in comparison to this one anyhow. So do yourself a favor; ignore the detractors; and play it with an open mind. I'm sure you'll find it surprisingly good too ;)
