Best Amiga game graphics

Which Amiga game do you think have the best graphics?

I think Cruise for a Corpse. The backgrounds are great and the vector animation is super smooth. Turrican 1-2 and Prince of Persia also have excellent graphics.

Alien Breed
Alien Breed 2
Brian the Lion
Body Blows - I think this was supposed to use only 16 colours on screen. If it's true, Team17 did a very good job mixing them around.

Body Blows Galactic
Chaos Engine
Chuck 2
Death Mask
Disposable Hero
Dune II
Elf Mania
First Samurai
Jaguar XJ220
Mortal Kombat II -Mr Nutz
project X
Risky Woods
R-Type II - Very close to the arcade. Music was better
Street Fighter II
Rodland - Arcade perfect conversion
Ruff 'N' Tumble
Second Samurai
Simon The Sorcerer
Swiv - Can't get any better than this with 512K!
Yo Joe
Zeewolf 2


Fightin Spirit
Body Blows Galactic
Primal Rage
Simon The Sorcerer
Super Stardust

You guys forgot Fightin' Spirit... for the A500!!! Everyone seems to think this game is AGA only, but it came out for OCS/ECS Amigas first, and used 64 colours (must have been Extra Halfbright). Of course ,the AGA version was more colourful, faster, and had the dude with the flags at the start, but the A500 version is nearly identical. I have it installed on my A2000, and just bought a BRAND NEW copy of it for CD32, still shrink wrapped!

Oh yeah, and Kid Chaos was also bloody impressive, super fast, excellent thumping tunes, and more parallax than most games. I just wish more games used the full screen resolution, 320x200/256, instead of being inside black boxes.

Hmm Sword of Sodan and Defender of the Crown had great graphics for early games on the Amiga, later on I'd have to go with most of the psygnosis releases, and the delphine ones!

i'd have to very firmly disagree with that. the genesis primal rage is FAR better than the disgustingly converted amiga version.
