hm... I concede that it's been a long time since I played vanilla SF2, so my memories on how tough that fight is are most likely clouded. Before writing my comment, I took a peek at someone's playthrough on Youtube, and they didn't seem to have an easy time with keeping everyone alive, nor whittling down Zeon with attacking one person at a time.
Anyway, no Karma-shaming intended. I just wanted to push my Anti-Aura4-Propaganda.
