    It looks and sounds great, superior to the cartridge version...
    It's the best in the "arcade" style, 'cause ISSS Deluxe is a lot more realistic than this one (tactics, dribbles, strategy...) , has much better graphics and in-game narration.

    Sensi doesn't need fancy GFX. What Sensi offers is the most perfect control and header system seen in any Football game ever made. Sure it's not 100% realistic, but it's so much fun and still the best football game to date imo.

    I wasn't talking about "fancy GFX" exactly. ISSS Deluxe gives you adult-like players like no other 16-bit soccer game (maybe Super Sidekicks but it looks dumb), with a very good design and realistic animation (movements seem real)... The uniforms resembles the ones from the 1994 World Cup pretty well.
    Also the transition from defense to attack is more like in a real game.
    But, again, Sensible Soccer is great for being a totally arcade pickup-and-play soccer game. They are totally different soccer games. It's something like comparing Daytona USA to the Nascar games (FIFA would be a closer comparison, but ISSS is 100x better than FIFA)...

    Agreed 100%

    Wait... Just European National Teams? That's bad... At least Mega Drive has an "International Edition".
    A soccer game without Brazil's National Team makes no sense at all. It's like a Basketball game without USA.

    Flashback is way better on cartridge. The rotoscoped cutscene animations of the cart look much better than the ugly prerendered CG stuff that replaced most of it on the SCD version.

    One of my all time favs.... <3

    If parts of compilations are allowed I'm going to say Golden Axe on the Sega Classics. The arcade music goes great with the game even if there were no real additions to the game.

    I'll have to give that version a shot, I tried the Sega CD version, but didn't see what all the fuss was about.
    I don't play old stuff for nostalgia, I play old stuff because the games are better.

    I agree the Cart versions just seems to play and feel better . After the amazing job their did with Another World on the Mega CD, with stunning audio that added so much to the game and it's atmosphere. Flashback on the Mega CD was a disappointment

    What about the compilation games? (4in1 and 5in1) Which ones are different / better than their carts? IIRC People have said Streets of Rage sounds slightly better on the CD compilation...

    Also IIRC Columns is not only on the compilations, but also Columns on CD by itself with an FMV. Haven't played that one...

    I also dislike the added weapon to EWJ along with finding the level mediocre and somewhat grinding.
    The Eccos do benefit from the clearer audio.

    Cliffhanger is better with that Snowboarding level which I have never EVER beaten.

    Flashback absolutely better.

    Spiderman was much better on the Mega Drive . Spiderman on the Mega CD had too many levels which added nothing to the game , felt disjointed and lack some nice touches of the Mega Drive version like taking photo's . Cliffhanger onthe Mega CD was much better due to the Snowboarding, but also thanks to the film soundtrack, the FMV intro and better soundeffects over the Mega Drive version.

    I hate the new speech in Revenge, Streets of Rage, GP tbh - I like the cart version more, Columns and Goldex Axe were improved thanks to the music, but for some unknown reason the 2 player mode for Golden Axe was taken out.

    Shadow of the Beast 2 is significantly better than the Genesis cartridge and comes VERY close to the FM Towns version. The graphics are more detailed and the sound is quite a bit better than the cartridge. The cut scenes are worse than the Amiga and FM Towns, but the in-game graphics are actually better than the Amiga version.

    Spiderman on the Sega CD has greatly improved backgrounds and character sprites, but the FMV is dumb and it the gameplay is confusing. It seems you wander around from level to level with no clear objectives and eventually police shoot you to death.

    Spiderman on Sega CD rules, yes including the title song. If I didn't know any better I'd call it the original sandbox game, but it was one of the earlier ones that I really liked back in the day and today.
