No problems most of them are under the 3 for £10 in Gamestation.. With the exception of the Cave games like Mushi Himesama which are very pricey..

Just to add Strikers 1945 you get in the 3 for £5

And it's worth getting both Taito Collections as they have several vertical and horizontal shooters such as Ray Storm and Dariaus

I've got Viewpoint for the PS1. It's rock, but good too! :P Also like Future Cop LAPD but I doubt its the kind of shooter you're after.

What's wrong with RType Final? :shock: Also, isn't this thread in the wrong section?

Edit: This was my 2000th post! Yay to me! :)

I'd just like to add Homura and Psyvariar for the PS2 to the above, two of my personal favourites.

And another :? to the R-Type Final comment - tis a great game.

I have so many fond memories of Rabio Lepus, as it was an aracde game I stumbled across on my way to France (on a ferry). I'm guessing that it's import only??

Also, do you mean R Types on the PS (as in collection)?

Rabio Lepius was just released on the Konmai Best Collection along with Haunted Castle, contra and Terra Cresta.. And they came with Arts Cards of the cabinets and extra disc with a 1 life replay.. Supposed to be a budget release..

I saw the Pal PS1 R Type in the Retro Shop in the Market last week.. It had R Type's 1 and 2 on 1 disk he wanted £4 for it
