I completed Time Crisis 2 with a friend from school.

I also completed the Star Wars Trilogy game that came out around 2000.

That's about all though.

only one,a football game that i can't remember the name of.you could run to the corner flag and stop and a defender would slide tackle you sending the ball out for a corner.the corner set piece meant you would score probably 8 out of 10 times.

How many levels on Wonderboy? I thought there was only 3, my friend says after you beat the third boss the items scroll across and there's about 8 levels in total..

Regarding Ghosts and GoblinsI could never get passed the 2 Red Monsters in the tower(one kidnaps the princess at the beginning) as it kept sending me back as I had the wrong weapon.. Watched a You Tube replay and there was another Boss fight after it and your then sent back to the beginning as it was a Illusion.. Do you have to complete the game a second time with that horrible short range cross?

Go on then, I'll list some of the games I could 1cc that were (IMO) good achievements:

Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Shadow Dancer
Quartet (It loops and you lose twice as much health when second time round - I could play it for hours on 20p)
Vulcan Venture (loops and the difficultly ramps up)
Dragon Breed
Forgotten Worlds (usually in two player)
RoboCop
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (all characters)
Toki (I played this for the first time in years a few years ago - much more difficult than I remembered)
Side Arms
The House of the Dead (in two player)
Moonwalker
Splatterhouse (unusually, the penultimate stage is much harder than the last stage)
Soldier of Light (aka Xain'd Sleena)
Image Fight
Metal Slug
Neo Turf Masters
Thunder Hoop (a challenging Toki rip-off)
Aliens
Sly Spy
Midnight Resistance
Captain America and The Avengers

Wonderboy has 7 areas, each with 4 rounds, usually a ground tree/grass stage, one over water, one in caves then the boss one. However if you get every secret doll (all 28) there is a secret 8th area. Some of the dolls are hidden in enemies and all sorts!

And yeah you have to be using the cross to access the second loop. It's actually pretty good once you get used to it - stops projectiles for a start.
