The toughest games
redfrog
Whilst playing Fatal Fury Special and realising how hard it is, I wondered what were the most challenging games on the Neo Geo. I would be really interested to know what games you all find really tough.
Maybe we could make a list of the ten hardest games out there?

I would say Magician Lord and NAM-1975 are as hard as hell. I Find most neo games hard but thats 1 thing that keeps me coming back but these 2 stand out for me.
 
merlin
I think these are the hardest games on Neo Geo:

3 Count Bout
King of the Monsters 2
Magician Lord
Pulstar
Viewpoint
Nam 1975

Has anyone here ever completed Nam 1975? I can't imagine many people have. Even though I'll never complete games like King of the Monsters 2 and Nam 1975 it doesn't stop me from really enjoying them.

Pulstar and Magician Lord are the hardest I have played.

What is tough for me you ask?

Well:

3 Count Bout
Breakers & Breakers Revenge
World Heroes 2
Magician Lord
Fatal Fury 1

By the way merlin, I could complete Nam 1975 with some effort, it's certainly not impossible to play through like other early 90s games. The hardest part was facing the Mid Boss 1 - Crane Tank and the Final Boss - Dr Muckley's Laser Mech.

Pulstar is tough but fair.

Art of Fighting 2 is just tough. Frustratingly so.

WH2 is my bitch.

Will I'm impressed that you can complete Nam because I think it's very tough. On the home system with limited credits I can get to the stage 4 boss with difficulty. Playing through emulation with unlimited credits I can get to Dr. Muckley but I find that fight impossibly difficult.

I just found a video on youtube of someone completing the game. It doesn't look very easy!

I find Pulstar hard - especially the bit on the 2nd level with the
exploding red sack things. I am red/green colour blind - so it is even
harder for me! (Puzzle Bobble does my head in!)

Does anyone else find Viewpoint tough (or is that just me being rubbish)?

Yes and Fatal Fury Special! I've never played a fighting game before
where on my first game I struggled on the first few battles.

Before I knew what I was doing - I thought MOTW was hard - it doesn't seem very hard now though!

I agree with you about Viewpoint RiKo. I really struggle with it. Great game though. One of these days I'm going to have a serious campaign and spend about a month playing it.

That underwater boss in level 2 in Pulstar is a nightmare. It took me ages to get past that bit.

For me, the hardest is Art of Fighting 2. Even the first few characters are at the difficulty level of most end bosses.

It is a really beautiful game to look at, but so damn frustrating that I have never made any progress with it at all.
 
rbelmonte171
i can finish AOF 2 but i still think it is one of the most difficult games on the neo and Riko i agree with you on FFS so difficult that i can't play it, God i can't stand that game....

I think Pulstar is probably hands down the hardist game on the hardware.

Legend of Success Joe might just be the hardist to stomach LOL

I spent most of the eighties, most of my life, riding around in somebody else's car, in possession of, or ingested of, something illegal, on my way from something illegal to something illegal with many illegal things happening all around me.

The Samurai Showdown bosses are a pain in the butt.

Pulstar and Viewpoint. Shame Viewpoint's got such a catchy soundtrack considering you never last long enough to hear it LOL

pulstar, super r-type(no checkpoints omfg!), snk bosses in general(damn you rugal!), metropolis street racer(I know it's ridiculous but I can't stand loosing points for hitting the walls) and more. I'm probably just not that good at gaming...

- Sengoku, partially because it will consume your soul while playing it.
- Art of Fighting 2, because every AI character suffers from a severe case of SNK boss syndrome.
- Trash Rally, because the game is so damn broken.

Honorable mention: Igniz (not actually a game but yeah you know exactly why he's here)

Ha ha - I actually saw this game listed as 'Trash Rally' on Ebay, by a seller - he had several for sale. I have also seen 'Fatal Fuly' for sale many times!

The orginal R-Type (Arcade) is sooo hard. I was playing the PS version, and I kept struggling to get past the huge ship on the 3rd level(?). The Amiga version was much easier!

I am a little suprised to see Thrash Rally on this list.

What is hard/broken about it?

The hit detection for one is waaay off which makes the overly strict time restraints they set up seem even more ridiculous. After that I must say that the stats on each car is a joke, and finally there's of course the cheating AI.

I'd recommend OverTop over this game every time. Same theme except better at everything. Neo Drift Out is a gem in the same genre as well. I hope at least one of them makes it to Arcade Classics vol. 2.

Even Play-Asia call it Trash Rally:

I know I am in the minority on this one, but I think Thrash Rally is an excellent game
