This *would* have been a really great collection, except that the emulation of the sixteen included Neo*Geo games is really bad: it looks okay (once you switch off the default stretch-screen video size, anyway) right up until things start moving, and then you realize that the framerate is awful, and it renders most of these action-oriented games pretty unpleasant to play, with control input that feels about a half-second behind. Yuuuuck.
SNK's Japanese developers can emulate a Neo*Geo game perfectly, but apparently SNK USA hasn't quite got the hang of it yet.
Too bad, too, because I really did want to play some of these (as listed on the back cover):
Art of Fighting
Baseball Stars 2
Burning Fight
Fatal Fury
King of the Monsters
Last Resort
Magician Lord
Metal Slug
Neo Turf Masters
Samurai Shodown
Shock Troopers
The King of Fighters 94
Top Hunter
World Heroes
