Better later than never. Here are the two Virtual Console that was out in Europe on Friday March 14, 2008.

Operation Wolf
NES – 1989 by Taito – action – 1 player – 500 points – age 12+

In this NES action game, a port of the hit arcade original, you play a crack Special Forces soldier tasked with parachuting into the South American jungle on a dangerous mission to rescue hostages.

Playing from a first-person perspective, you control a gunsight and use your machine gun and grenades to take out enemies. Each of the six missions has a unique objective, with your performance in each mission affecting the ending. But it’s not enough to simply scatter the screen with bullets – you’ve got to make sure you get as many hostages out of there alive as you can!

The game features different ending sewuences (and cash bonuses for your troops!) depending on how many hostages you manage to save. Will the President of the United States be happy with your performance? Put your finger on the trigger and find out!
