    Yes, but just to be precise: if you use a full, unmodified Sega CD setup and an EverDrive with a special-free region BIOS loaded, you can get some (not all) Japanese Mega-CD games to run on US hardware.

    (Sometimes people think incorrectly that they can run Sega CD ISOs directly from the EverDrive, so I just want to be clear.)

    Not that I know of, but it'd be great to have one. We'd need someone with a large Mega CD collection + an EverDrive + US hardware + the willingness to systematically try things out, though, and that may not be easy to find. Or we can piece it together from various sources -- I don't know how Melf is running his Japanese games, but if he's running them on US hardware...

    (I don't own any original Japanese Mega CD games, so I don't want to use my own experiences for a list, since I can't be sure that my copies are correct/faithful.)

    Don't forget there's also the Datel Pro CDX converter cart (which varies dramatically on compatibility) two different software patching programs to use if you burn a CD-R (again, compatibility varies tremendously), and the Megacart that was specifically made to support all regions.

    I've used the Megacart on my NTSC model 2 Sega CD and never had a single import game not work. If for some reason Sengoku does have the region check mid-game, the Megacart still fixes it because I've played through it quite a few times.

    Thanks for the advice Azathoth and goldenband.

    Although I am currently seeking a Japanese Model 1 SEGA CD CIB, I think that either option will serve as a cheaper alternative to playing inport SEGA CD games! Thanks once again!
    Time to wake up Gordon Gekko! It's time to put that plan into action!

    Now that i've actually given it a fair shot, the game isn't bad at all. It also gets quite a bit better after the first 2 stages. Yes it's a bit average, yes the graphics and levels are bland in the beginning (they get better). The music isn't bad, it actually uses the scaling chip a little.
    I'd give it a 7/10. An ok game, better than all the FMV garbage.
    This thread needs more... ENGINEERS
