Can we rename this the Fred83 forum please! :) I love the Saturn but it can't compare with the Dreamcast in my opinion.

I know a lot of people hate Streetfighter the Movie but I actually quite enjoyed it. I mean the gameplay is still solid, it just looks bad with low frames of animation. I like to think of it as a cross between MK and Streetfighter, as it's got that kind of look about it.

I think there's much worse games on Saturn than SFTM, certainly where gameplay is concerned.

In my local Gamestation they have a boxed Sega Saturn light gun with Time Crisis 2 for £14.99. Is it worth getting for that price?

Yes, I've got both of those but I haven't played the second one yet. I promised myself I wouldn't play VC2 until I finished VC1. Which I haven't done yet. :oops: It is a great light gun game though, maybe the best one I've played. :)

Area 51 and Maximum Force are also very enjoyable light gun titles IMHO

Virtua Cop 1 is THE best gun game full stop. It's one of the few that rewards accuracy and playing properly rather than spraying the screen with bullets. Time Crisis 1 was also nearly on par. Then gun games started having too many gimmicks - even VC2 wasn't a patch on 1's level design etc.

Yep! I agree with that totally and more importantly no other gun game came close to the sheer addictiveness of it.

The only gun game I've ever enjoyed so much is Point Blank in the arcades. I never did get around to buying it for the PS. Is it good on that too?

p.s. Sorry, Fred, no idea :|
