Let's Compare - Gerrilla War
« on: November 28, 2015, 04:12:10 AM »
Guerrilla War, released in Japan as Guevara, is an overhead run and gun game produced by SNK. Originally released for arcades in 1987 as a coin-operated arcade game, Guerrilla War followed the adventures of two unnamed rebel commandos (Che Guevara and Fidel Castro in the Japanese version) as they raid an unnamed Caribbean Island in order to free it from the rule of an unnamed tyrannical dictator. Along the way the players vanquish hordes of enemy soldiers while attempting to rescue hostages (with large score deductions for any hostages killed in the crossfire), collecting weapons from troopers and operating tanks.

I have the arcade game on my Vita and it's not bad.  The NES version looks good, and the DOS version is okay but it looks different. I wouldn't want to play any of the other ports!

No it's the western version. I didn't even know there was a Japanese version based on real history. Learned something new :)

Not the best choice of individuals to make "heroes" in a video game!  LOL
