I'd second Super Star Soldier

The only Jap Gamecube games I own are
Super Star Soldier
PN03
Super Monkey Ball
Spirits and Spells
"Crush the Old Order and CREATE A NEW SOCIETY!"

Forgot I-Ninja wasn't out on the Cube in Europe, otherwise I would have mentioned that myself...

Dragon drive - d master shot. A 3d shooting game by treasure, didn't get the best reviews but probably an interesting collectable.

Alien Hominid (PS2 version probably cheaper)
Amazing Island (exclusive remake - not brilliant but fun)
Chaos Field (Decent shooter - originally on the Dreamcast?)
Intellivision Lives! Arcade Classics (PS2 version probably cheaper)
Megaman 1-8: Anniversary Collection (a must have!)
Megaman X Collection (another must have!)
Midway Arcade Treasures Vols 1-3 (PS2/XBOX version definitely cheaper)
Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Jap only - Dr Mario etc)
Robocop (Jap only - not a great game but better than the PS2 version - very rare)
Smashing Drive (Great arcade fun for 5 minutes)
Star Soldier (Jap only - nice shooter)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare (PS2 and XBOX versions are expensive so this is worth an import - You can unlock 'Turtles in Time' arcade!!!)
Nice one, thanks for that list. I had no idea about these games. I know there's not a great deal to import for the cube but there seems to be some decent stuff regardless. Gonna start looking at picking a few up myself.

Trailer here:

Here's the PCE version:

Get both just to be on the safe side.
Wasn't a big fan of Adventure Island but that soon changed when I played the PCE verison. Cracking game. Definitely gonna check out the Cube remake,. said to be a lot better than the poor Wiiware remake.

I forgot to mention, I've been playing "Battle Stadium D.O.N" which is a Japanese release. It's characters from Dragonball, Naruto & One Piece in a Smash Bros type game. I'm not that big on Smash Bros, but I don't mind giving this a go every now & again for something different.
