I hope you get it switch-modded or buy an Action Replay to play imports, because Japan is where it's at baby

Great games:

Sonic R
Sonic Jam (all Sonics in one without genesis slowdown )
Radiant Silvergun (good luck, this is a ~200 dollars investment :P)
Battle Garegga
Sega Rally (BEST driving game IMO!)
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Thunderforce V
Grandia
Shining Force 3 (all chapters)

Hmmm... lots of other great conversions like Puzzle Bobble and Puyo Puyo... and great fightters but since you dont like them....

Besides what Akira already said:

Guardian Heroes: Hmm.. ok, this is a fighting game, but it's completely different of all you've seen before. It's a hybrid of an RPG and Streets of Rage, with AMAZING, OUTSTANDING 2D graphics, and action like I have never seen before, 6 simultaneous players (if you have an adapter), and it throws more things on the screen than a shoot'em up! If you can find this game, snap it up!

There's a game I only saw, never played, but it seemed to be great: Silhoutte Mirage. And it's from Treasure, so you can't be wrong with it

Most are fighting games

I also like beatem-up games (like Final Fight). Any suggestions?

Indeed. Gret game by the Sonic Team....
Put down fires?? I have no clue... was it a platformer?

Guardian heroes is a Streets of Rage-type game, Shatterhand already mentioned it. GET IT.

Final Fight in 3D sucks and it's not a progressive beat'em up so forget it.

Final Fight in 3D ? Didn't know this existed.

Nights was good, can't believe I forgot to mention that one


Oh, if the game that you extinguish fire is one you see ir from overhead point of view, and it's called "The Fireman", I've played in on PSX... it's a very cool game , I liked it. And it seemed to have some nice plot running , but it was in japanese.

It was by the sonic team and came out at the very end of the saturns life......I think it used the Sarurns "Axed" sonic adventure game engine.....wish I had bought it now as it will be very hard to get hold of

Thanks Uukrul - Muchly Apreciated..

King of Fighters 95 Is a damn fine game - was orignally an excuse to get a 4 mb Ram cart (which turned out to be a bloody 1 mb - Fuk!), and kof 96 was same as but good too.

oh and you can't forget Super Puzzle Fighter! The only time my lovely Ken has beaten Ryu

This thread must go on! SS is superb console (said somene who owns it for week ).

For me its now Galactic Attack and Gun Bird, excellent shootemups, as well as Radiant Silvergun.
I love sport games and Athlete Kings and Winter Games are first class.
Layer Section 2 is great too and Salamander games dissapointed me a little bit, I had expected too much (it doesnt mean I dont like it).

I am SS beginner and have to investigate its gaming world more.

In no order reading off my shelf:

Panzer Dragoon Saga
Magic Knight RayEarth
Dark Saviour
Legend of Oasis
Shining Wisdom
Shining Force III
Albert Odyssey : Legend of Eldean
Shining the Holy Ark
DragonForce
Grandia
Nights into Dreams

You should be able to tell that I like Saturn RPG's

Astal
Burning Rangers

There were loads of Arcade conversions, particularly driving and shooing games but as a Gamer, I have to recommend today the better experience comes from firing up MAME and playing the original!

But through poor management and even worse games, the Saturn solidified Sega as the next company to join the pantheon of also-rans.
