Hahahaha, that advert rules! :P I've got Gaiares, I always remember GamePro magazine raving about it so I spent a while tracking it down (I don't think it got a UK release) and I thought it wasn't bad, bit I was a little disappointed after all their hype.

No, totally overhead-bit-free, and fudging fantastic.

Good topic this one, like it.

Interesting suggestions too!

I've gotta plump for

Gun Star Heroes
Hellfire
Bio-Hazard Battle
Thunder Force IV
ESWAT

No one's mentioned Gun Star yet, I thought it was a great game...

Both of these titles are generally considered to be platformers. So that's probably why no-one mentioned Gunstar Heroes.

I'd have said they were Shooters.

Either way, I still love 'em both :)

Zero Wing - it is no where near as bad as people think.

It's very good indeed, but what puts potential players off is that somebody set up us the bomb.

'Thunderforce III' and 'Zero Wing' were my two favourite Megadrive shoot 'em ups.

Im watching Gaiares on Ebay which is @ £13.00 + £2.00 P&P with 3 hours to go- Im guessing much more than this and its gonna start getting towards the top end of its value. Am I right?

EDIT: It sold for the above in the end. Passed up on it, catch it another time. Been spending far too much lately!
