Best version to play this???

Post by vree » October 21st, 2017, 6:50 am

So I'm currently playing this on the Snes. And for some reason I'm not feeling it. Feel like a lot of cheap deaths. This normal? Also the music is horrible...

If not it the pc version better? And if so which version?

I'm used to play pop1 on dos way back. And after that on snes. This one does feel good on the Snes.

The SNES port of PoP2 is horrible indeed.
See "The reasons why the SNES version sucks" here: http://popuw.com/pop2snes.html

The DOS version is better.
There are three full versions for DOS: IR, 1.0 and 1.1.
In IR the first ruins level is accidentally too easy, in 1.1 the guards will happily walk into death, so I guess the 1.0 is the best. (Unless you like those bugs. :) )

Yes, the SNES port of PoP1 is very accurate to the original.
Btw, here is a list about accuracy of PoP1 versions: viewtopic.php?p=14140#p14140
