Critic Reviews for NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2
Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol.2 is a perfectly able collection, albeit less enticing than the first volume. Several games in the library here - notably Card Fighters Clash, Mega Man Battle & Fighters, and Biomotor Unitron - have already received standalone releases on Switch eShop, which may well dissuade you from a purchase if you already own them. Die-hard fans of everything Neo Geo Pocket Color will likely enjoy getting stuck into what's here, but it's not a must-buy.
The majority of games featured in the NEOGEO Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2 are fun, while some fall flat. Overall, I think SNK released a solid selection of titles for volume 2 of this series with some added extra to boot, but they really do need to rethink that price point.
Ten games for £35 can’t be sniffed at, especially during times of budgetary constraints, but Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2 represents a disappointing step down from the first volume. A series of curiosities, average ports and games where the language barrier is an unfortunate turn-off make for a collection that will likely hold appeal for fans of the platform, but which I can’t heartily recommend to the masses.
NEOGEO POCKET COLOR SELECTION Vol.2 comes as a surprise just like its previous volume and offers us another 10 titles from SNK's ill-fated portable system. They highlight SNK VS. CAPCOM CARD FIGHTERS CLASH and MEGA MAN BATTLE & FIGHTERS but overall these 10 titles cover another important part of SNK's 16-bit laptop catalogue, and perfectly complement Vol.1. We hope that one day we will have a Vol.3 with the blue hedgehog as the protagonist.
