Yes I do. I think it is a very fun game. Love the art style and music. I’m not a big beat ‘m up guy. I really like Burnin fight for example.

I've been a big belt-scroller fan since Technos released Double Dragon back in the late 80s, so I believe I've played my fair share of them over the years.
Burning Fight and Paprium have got a lot in common - primarliy they should have both been a lot better than what we got.
In brief Burning Fight could have been an awesome Final Fight clone, but the gameplay is weak, the playable character graphics and animation are poor. Music is good and the backgrounds are very well done.
Paprium... graphics are very good, but enemy's are reptitive, the gameplay is not as advanced as it could be (compared to Streets of Rage 2, The Punisher etc) and the music is also reptitive.
Is Paprium a bad game? No, it isn't, but it's average... kind of like Crest of Wolf on PC Engine but with shiny graphics.
Anyway, my issue is with WM and how they treated their original backers. I count myself lucky to have bought when pre-orders launched and actually recieved something.... eventually
The shit storm that followed the years of delays is easy to find. The issues that were raised with NGF back in the day were very much confined to a few niche online communities, that isn't the case with WM... yet people are still throwing money at them.
As I said previously, blows my mind.
BTW... anyone reading this who wants to pay $1,000 for Paprium, a la eBay, then hit me up, becuase I'd rather have $1,000 than hold on to this. Seriously. I will take your money.
