@Darren

With Banshee, there is an AGA (A1200/4000) version, that has much better visuals and smoother / faster game play.

I'm going to have to go with Pilotwings. the first Flight sim that made the genre actually playable in a fun way for me.

I did play Beachhead on the CPC, but I never seemed to be able to last more than a minute or 2...

Personally, I'd love for Metal Slug 3 to get the pick, but Moonwalker sounds fun as well.

Am I the only one here that thinks that "Streets of Rage 2" is a little over-rated?

I played this quite recently actually, played to completetion on both the XBox Emu and Megadrive emu on my PSP...

yeah.... its a good game..... but its not a GREAT game, theres to-many niggles and in a lot of places its just to easy, linear and a little hum-drum to be fair.

I was NOT impressed with the nightmare wich the game on the megadrive called music.... and absolutle travesty to be honest!!! (should of stuck with the cool-spot music :D).

Has to be Streets of Rage 2 for me. Hell of a beatem up and probably the best of its type on the 16bit systems.

Back and forth between SOR2 & Pilotwings, but in the end I chose SOR2.
