Were the CD based PC-Engines really worth the extra money, over the standard PCE?? I know you had games like Dracula X, that would probaly be worth it in itself, but other than that were there any other must have CD based games to get for the CD unit??

I know there were alot of remakes for CD based the standard card games just with CD music. So was it really work paying for the CD system? Did it actual have better graphic capabilites???

As well as CD music, the various PC Engine system cards had more ram, so later Super CD and Arcade CD games could handle more images at once, giving you more frames of sprite animation and so on.

I'd say the PC Engine CD add on is well worth it.

There was a discussion about good PC Engine CD games here:
