    I still like the genny version better. It just plays better. Being able to shot up helps to. I played the crap out of both. I also have the ps2 version which also has the arcade port along with the SNES one and I like the Genny version better than both of those as well. It controls better.

    Ghosts N' Goblins is great... just stay away from the NES port and stick with the arcade version.

    Just beat the game on Practice mode, 3 hours last night, and about 45 minutes this morning after keeping the game on pause for the night.

    Now to beat it on Professional!

    This is the first game I bought for the genesis and it is easily one of the best.

    Just beat this game on practice and professional (twice each), and I loved every second of it. Awesome game this one.

    The Sega Genesis/Sega Mega Drive version is an impressive port; the graphics are awesome, the sound effects are great, the music is great, and you can now move the opposite direction while you're crouching. In the arcade version, you had to stand up from a crouch, turn around and crouch again.

    Mel Viel, you did an excellent job reviewing this game. Keep up the great work.

    Easily one of the best. This is what all platformers should be like.
    Developers have clearly taken notes (although it took them 20 years to realize what made this game so succesful) and many of todays "retro" platformers such as Super Meat Boy, IWTBTG, etc. have borrowed elements from this game. In particular the perfect controls and difficulty.

    Love this game, but it does not return the love, it kicks my ass. I have this and the original other 2 games (Ghosts, Super Ghouls) on several platforms (and the PSP and it's later Japan revision), from Saturn, to PS2, to PSP and PS1, all of them are effective at killing me, but not letting me draw away.

    Easier than the first game yes, but you definitely must keep on your toes as enemies never stop respawning.

    Ghouls N' Ghosts emotionally destroyed me as a kid. It was first time I remember legitimately getting angry at a game. Thanks Capcom for making me finish the game twice!

    NES port is good for the hardware.

    Sorry to nitpick but it wasn't really a launch title:

    Both are great games and I would be hard pressed to choose a favourite version.
    Having said that I think the Genesis version just has the edge - its a perfect port of a great coin-op.
    The SNES version suffers from quite a bit of slowdown, you can't shoot up or down and the double jump is a bit weird also. Also in some levels they had overdone it a bit on the special effects front - I feel that the presentation and atmosphere / eeriness of the Genesis version in on the whole more convincing.

    "Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts" on SNES is a completely different game in that it's a sequel to the coin-op/Genesis "Ghouls 'N Ghosts".
