What Is It? Pretentious name aside, World Heroes Perfect is the fourth and final game in the SNK fighting franchise. You get sixteen goofy characters, including a Ryu/Ken-style pairing, a football quarterback, Rasputin, Hulk Hogan, an M. Bison lookalike, a Viking and the obligatory Bruce Lee rip-off (named Dragon, no less). The gimmick here is that you'll be forced to travel through time and duke it out on era-specific stages. We get the Stone Age, Ice Age, Industrial Revolution and so on. Sometimes these stages will fight back, throwing ice at you and offering other obstacles. Beat the competition and you'll be whisked away to fight Zeus and Neo Dio at the Blackness Castle. Do you have what it takes to conquer both time and space? Find out in World Heroes Perfect on the Wii Virtual Console.

Does It Still Hold Up? Compared to The King of Fighters and other similar SNK games, World Heroes has always felt a little loose. The game has a penchant for goofy moves and novelty characters, something that has always been something of an acquired taste. The fighting mechanics aren't as finely tuned as Street Fighter and the graphics pale in comparison to other Neo Geo titles. It may not be SNK's best, but World Heroes Perfect is a whole lot of fun.

Is It Worth The Money? I can predict the future. Seeing as we've already talked about World Heroes and now we're talking about World Heroes Perfect, there will come a time where, just like The King of Fighters, we loop back around and fill in the missing sequels. Forget World Heroes 2 and Jet, just pick up this fun (albeit flawed) fighter and you'll be set for the future.
