I really like Magician Lord as well. I'm pretty bad at it but quite like the mix of run n gun and platforming gameplay.

I can't really think of a Neo Geo game that I hate, I've pretty much stuck to just fighters of which I've enjoyed all of the ones I've played.

Another Magician Lord fan here, it was the first game I bought when I got the system - it it a bit cheap in places though!

I too like Magician Lord. A bit rough around the edges, but it was one of the early games for the system, and it's still entertaining.

Can't say the same for Sengoku though- it's awful. Legend of Success Joe is an absolute stinker as well, and Art of Fighting has not aged gracefully (although the third game in the series is excellent). And while it's not the worst game ever, King of the Monsters 2 - The Next Thing is obscenely, offensively difficulty, even by SNK standards, so it's one you might want to miss.

Didn't get that much out of Sengoku as it felt flawed, dull and uninspiring.

Neo Mr. Do was a huge disappointment as it's "get bored halfway through and switch off" easy. Which is a shame as it looks gorgeous.

Legend of Success Joe is easily the worst Neo Geo game ever. Nothing else even comes close in the awfulness stakes.
