The Panzer Dragoon games, Fighters Megamix, Battle Arena Toshinden and Quake spring to mind. Otherwise, good collection you've got there!

No Mass Destruction? :shock:

What about King The Spirits, Gun Griffon, Hang On GP, Shinobi X, Gale Racer, Black Dawn, AMOK and Wing Arms?

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I'll have to get onto that.

Not overly keen on Panzer Dragoon tbh (I know right?).

For 2 player, Return Fire is a must.

How did Resi games play on the Saturn, it's one console I've never played them on

They played ok on the saturn. Visuals were not as crisp and the usual issue of graphical transparencies reared it's head from time to time. Overall it was enjoyable though.

Remember playing it on jap import for the saturn and the first batches were goosed. You got the the labs at the end and one of the bits of equipment you needed to click on it to examine it. After you went to examine it the game crashed and locked up. Nothing could be done to get past it other than wait for the next printed batch.

I always thought that the Saturn version of the original C&C was the best out of the console conversions - yet it never appears on any lists at all.

Never been into Resi, and Reloaded was never officially released. I might check out the prototype though at some point. Thanks guys!

Another thought, how does Magic Carpet stand up today? I used to like it but haven't played it in 15 years!

Another one I just thought of is Crimewave, I really like that game, very under rated. Also the Bug games are great if you like platformers.

I did have a look at that on youtube a week or so ago. It looks fun, but the constantly moving camera made me feel a little sick. I guess they were trying to simulate a helicopter camera.
