I'd go for Gynoug as well - one of the best shooters on the Megadrive IMO. :)

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

The need for a 6 button pad goes without saying (and the MD 6 button pad is one of my favourite pads!), the buttons are much better laid out than the SNES pad especially for this game. Go an play the SNES version now and see how painfully slow it is (especially the PAL version). The MD's Championship Edition has adjustable speed which makes it the winner for me along with the fact that you can play as the boss characters and have the ability to play 2-player as the same character.
The SNES version of SF 2 Turbo Hyper Fighting does all that as well. There's no difference content wise between the versions. Changeable speeds, boss characters & mirror matches are all present & correct.

Might as well chip in and swing the vote further towards Gynoug.

it has to be gynoug

Sf is better on other consoles, and gynoug is an excellent shooter only available on the megadrive. It can also be picked up for peanuts too so what are you waiting for?

I remember borrowing an import copy in the day from a friend of mine.(did mean machines do an import review?). Still playable as ever.

Get Streety, get 2 of the awesome 6 button pads, get a bag of lagers and get a mate round your house. Hey presto; hours of entertainment.

Get the edition with the new challengers characters included (I believe it’s called something other than “New Challengers” on Mega Drive), be Fei Long and tan your mates arse with him all night until he’s **this** close to starting a real fight with you over it.
And this bird you'll never change...

I'd get Gynorg, its a great game and its relatively cheap. I got it for dirt cheap cart only in a bundle of games (I think Phelios was one of them too). Excellent shooter and for the price you should get alot of enjoyment out of it!

Street Fighter is supposed to be a good port on the Mega Drive, but its so easy to get hold of that game on any system now.

What he said (IV though)

Of those two, definitely Gynoug. Reason being - there's only one Gynoug, and even if I didn't love shmups like I love my firstborn, SF2 has been surpassed many times over, not only by SFIII: Third Strike and SF4, but the Super Kaiso Hyper Ultimate Street Fighter 2 Udon Edition on XBLA.

Poor kid can't be getting very much pocket money if he can't buy both Gynoug and Street Fighter 2 because he's got to keep some money asides for Sonic and Alien 3 :lol:

You could probably get all 4 of those for under a tenner, or at least under £15.

I might have actually believed what I was reading....20 years ago.

Another vote for the Megadrive SF2: Champion Edition. Get a sixer and you'll be laughing.

Personally I find it better than the SNES version, but the voice samples are HORRENDOUS.

Pocket money? He's seventeen years old according to the opening post in the other thread!

I wouldn't imagine he's that skint given that he supposedly owns an Xbox 360, PS3 and a Wii.

Anyways... I say get Gynoug.

Gynoug is probably my favourite shooter for the Mega Drive. So that.

They're bad, even for the MD and that's saying something!
