Ok thanks. Good to know :).

If it has all the board game expansions I'll be happy.

And it's a conversion of a fantastic board game. HeroQuest was one of my favorite board games of all time. Had some good expansion packs as well.

What's the best version of it? I know there was an Amiga, Atari ST and other ports of it.

Keep up the good work Gemini. Eagerly awaiting Resident Evil 1.5 :).

Well that's due to Greg Weisman who was the creator of the PnP game itself, being on the project + later Battletech (for Harebrained Schemes).

And for the record the response I got back when I asked about it was:

It’s not, or I’d have posted an update. I assure you it’s not, almost no one cares about it, lol.

I update when I have news to share.

In the case of Shadowrun Returns, that was a quasi sequel to the SNES game. I say quasi, as it had the main character out of the SNES game (Jake Armitage) in it, but only as a side character, and did not continue on the story. Beyond showing that he was still alive.

There is one slowly progressing along. I tried asking about it over on the translation groups website, and was told that there was no interest in it (from fans). And that's just dead wrong, as I've been a HUGE fan of Shadowrun ever since playing the SNES game + Shadowrun Returns (thanks Kickstarter) many years later.

I've played through the Genesis/Megadrive game, and it's alright. It's cyberspace / Matrix bits are wayyyyyyyyyyy better than the SNES game (more Deus Ex), but the overall experience is far lower. The music is massively inferior and the story is half half. What it does better is provide a more accurate version of the universe and is more in line with the actual PnP game.

SNES game though. FAR superior.

Played through this game recently. If your a fan of SOTN you'll love it.

Continues to amaze me of just how many amazing games never got an official English version.

That the SMT games never made it over is just criminal. Lovers of Phantasy Star 1 (and not the later sequels) would have loved that to death. Thanks for the link cccmar.

Can't wait to check this one out. I love the Shin Megami Tensei games, with 2 being my all time favorite.

How many untranslated games are left on the snes? Is there somewhere where we can find said list?

I'm just waiting on a translation of Tetris Battle Gaiden (on the snes). As that is my favorite game on the SNES that's yet to be translated. And no this is not a translation request.

I loved Arcomage.

World of Xeen is my all time favorite. Followed by 7. Having your own castle was just awesome.

Hmm. Bugs I don't recall other than the odd times where you'd encounter enemies FAR above your level (though only in certain places like the dungeon in the starting town). If you had this happen you might as well reset the game as you usually couldn't escape those battles, and the enemies would always 1 shot you. Very annoying.

The good side is that the first game and this one are the only bad games in the series. After this we got the awesome Isle of Terra, and it's from that point that you should only be playing them on PC. For 1 & 2 the NES and SNES versions are FAR superior to the PC originals.

Note that this game already had an English version (known simply as Might and Magic 2 - Gates to Another World) released in PAL territories back in the day. It looks and plays quite different to this one.

If I remember right that stats not changing happens even in the English version of the game. I definitely noticed differences in damage output when using different weapons.

I had a play of this for a few hours, and for all intents and purposes this version of the game is nigh identical to the English version except that it lacks the mini-map on screen and many of the NPCs you encounter don't look anywhere near as good as in the English version.

Differences from the English version of the game:

* No mini-map
* Graphically inferior to the English version. Wall textures aren't as good, interface looks worse.
* Very squished up item and equipment names (in the English version they are displayed in full)
* NPCs look completely different. This is neither a negative or positive.
* Combat is done better than in the English version.
* Enemies look completely different
* You now see portraits of all the party members on screen (this is more in-line with the PC entries in this game series)
* Doesn't have the insta-kill enemies present in the English version that would cause unavoidable death. This is a very positive difference.
* Dungeon maps go back to an unexplored if you leave and then return. In the English version what is explored stays that way.
* Doors are MUCH easier to unlock if you have robber/thief in your party than in the English version. Traps go off far less.
* Overall easier than the English version. Battles are easier, less damage from traps, you survive longer and die less.

Winner - English version. But this version does have it's own good points.

And of the Japanese version:

A few years ago there was some work being done on a translation hack/patch for Tetris Battle Gaiden for the SNES, but then dropped off the radar. That'd be another worthy.

Hope to see a translation for this game at some point. My girlfriend and me love to play it on occasion. Japanese text or not it's still quite playable.

If only this was 4 pages on the wonders of the Shadowrun universe and not boring stuff that has nothing to do with the hack or Shadowrun.

Awesome stuff :).

Hopefully we see a english translation of the Sega Mega CD Shadowrun game someday. It's the only Shadowrun game not currently available in english.

Both the snes and mega drive Shadowrun games are both excellent games. And then you have the fantastic Shadowrun Returns games of much more recent times (Dead Man's Switch being a semi-sequel to the snes game).

I wouldn't even compare the 2 as they are COMPLETELY different styles of games.

The first is a action game with FPS and RPG elements (along the same vein as Earthsiege, Heavy Gear etc), and the other is a straight up action game very similar to Desert Strike.

Be like trying to compare Super Mario World to Super Mario RPG. Completely different.

And for the record, my votes for the original game (which coincidentally was a partial port of the original Mechwarrior for the PC, though the levels and story are quite different).

Where can we download this patch? There is no mention made of this in the description.

Good luck with the translation of this game. I registered here just to show my support. This game is easily the best Tetris game on the snes (in my opinion) so I very much look forward to finally getting to play and see this in english.

Has there been any progress since the last post?
