Yu Suzuki is a genius. Probably my favorite developer, as evidenced on this list. The combat in this game was bad, but everything else was euphoric. I felt like I lived in Japan in the 1980's. My sister never really played video games, but loved this one....so much so that we still bring it up almost every time we see each other. The capsules with classic characters, the weather, the arcade, the people....just so amazing and immersive.
Score: 10.0 (Classic!)
