Sega Rally
Nightwarriors: Darkstalkers Revenge
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Fighters Megamix
Marvel Superheroes
Panzer Dragoon


These are all games I have had fun with and all available in the PAL format. If you get a Japanese or modded machine then there are even better games available as well as more to choose from.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

dia hard arcade is decent too

Whenever this topic comes up it needs saying - Get an import Saturn or a UK Saturn with 60hz switch and the ability to play Japanese games, either by internal mod or switch or converter cart. Then a whole world of great games becomes available. Every Capcom fighter for a start.

Personal faves: Die Hard Arcade, Virtua Fighter 2, Sega Rally, Actua Golf, Guardian Heroes, Fire Pro Wrestling S: 6 Man Scramble, Fighting Vipers, Baku Baku, Mass Destruction, King Of Fighters '96, Worldwide Soccer '98, Sega Ages, Panzer Dragoon 1&2, Digital Pinball, Bubble Symphony, Black Dawn, Sonic R and Atari Collection.

That is all I can think of right now but you can always have a look at my Saturn Review Guide 8)

It was partially fan translated, but I think they are trolling as the last bit of the game isnt so on the last bit I have no clue what to do, even walkthroughs are of no help.

Chipped Saturn's are fun

Instead of possibly buying a Saturn - why not spend the money on a shrink, as if you were thinking of buying a Saturn - you obviously need some help :lol:

The only downside - A shrink will probably set you back more than a Saturn

Ok, just jesting -

My 5 rated Saturn games :

Sega Ages Vol. 1 - One of the best Outrun/Space Harrier ports available
Guardian Heroes - Manic at times, but oh so much fun
Fighters Megamix - One of the best crossover fighters EVER - and not a Street Fighter in sight (gasp)
Burning Rangers - How has this not been mentioned in a thread asking the "Must Have" titles for the Saturn - everybody suffering a bout of amnesia today!?!
Die Hard Arcade - Class port of a class game
