With Vectorman 2 being delivered soon, I decided to take a real run at Vectorman. Since getting my system back I had taken probably 3-4 casual/lazy runs at it, never getting much further than level 6 or 7 (of 16). But I freaking DEMOLISHED that game last night. Default settings so medium basically. The bosses are way more predictable with easy patterns than I remember as a kid (or even playing on ROMs). Had some trouble with later levels and lost some lives. But I got all three bonus stages and had 7 lives left at the end. Only thing I missed was 1 or 2 max life+'s.
Really just a great game and rewards you for being tactical over just running willy-nilly. Even though the controls are solid enough to let you do either. Neat graphics for the time. And great sound. Will always be one of my favorites on the Genesis.
