In fact, some of the PS1 imports on the system were almost as bad if not far worse than the trashiest imports on Saturn, from what I know, having owned a multitude of them on both systems in the past. Some are so laughably kitschy that they make the ten dollar PC board games at Walmart look like Metal Gear Solid in comparison.
    Yeah some of the Japan Only PS1 games are pretty mediocre at best, but i do feel Sega Saturn imports were a bit much more better than the PS1 until after Final Fantasy 7 and maybe a few games around late '96 - '97 were somewhat decent.

    My proof with this experience was with a couple of terrible/not so great titles like Hakaiou King of Crusher, The Firemen 2 Pete & Danny (Not entirely crap at all but the overall gameplay of it felt shallow and nothing of a great follow-up to the Super Famicom/SNES original), Metal Jacket, Hard Edge, Rapid Reload aka Gunner's Heaven, Sōkaigi, and Steeldom.

    What are you talking about. What about my fave set of games, Shining Force 3 Scenario 2 & 3 & Premium Disk (I own all 3 Japanese versions too + with PD still sealed). For a good list, go here; http://segaretro.org/Category:1998_Saturn_games

    But I also have this crazy fascination with the last year or so of Saturn released, because most are Japan exclusive and the mystery behind them all since I still greatly need to research this era. Combine with the crazyness behind these last Saturn days. And some really obscure/unique releases. Equals a lot of mystique for these games for this Saturn fanboy. Too bad there's no interest to translate some of the text heavier games like RPGs yet...


    For some reason I have almost no interest in PS1 games after death of Saturn. As I don't recall anything interesting in gaming mags after those days, just new consoles hype for Dreamcast and PS2. So really felt like the end of an era too me post Saturn days excitement. Granted, not knowing much about PS1 games past 1998 should also peak my curiosity like for Saturn, but for some reason it doesn't. But I'm sure I'll eventually research that era more one of these days anyway.

    Oh yeah, true even a few from 1999 on the Sega Saturn are pretty great like Senken Kigyouden, Street Fighter Zero 3, Dungeons & Dragons Collection, Devicereign and Falcom Classics Collection that are worth playing on the Sega Saturn at the most.

    I'm surprised that the PlayStation didn't get a North American release of Earthworm Jim 2. I had the game for the Saturn, but I ended up trading it in for something else. I kind of regret that I got rid of it.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    Strikers 1945 threw me until I remembered that the one we got in the US was actually Strikers 1945 II.

    I enjoyed Taiketsu Rumi-Zu on the 3DO, despite the bad reviews it's gotten in a couple places. Some people have claimed it's impossible to figure out but I didn't have much trouble getting on its wavelength. I'll have to check out the PlayStation version -- the 3DO did suffer from a fair amount of slowdown.

    Tenchi o Kurau II is a pretty nice beat-'em-up. My wife and I played it the other week -- it gets quite challenging late in the game. I suspect character choice is crucial; I started with Huang Zhong and struggled before changing to the fifth guy (I don't recall his name).

    Zoku Gussun Oyoyo seems really fun! I played it only briefly but really liked the concept. I have copies of many of the others you've mentioned but haven't played them for more than a few minutes.

    BTW it's nuts that there are 25 unique tennis games for the PlayStation, of which only 4 were released in the US -- and they didn't exactly pick the cream of the crop to localize. True, some of the games left behind were garbage, but the Smash Court series, the Wai Wai Tennis series, and World Pro Tennis '98 all seem much more promising than what we did get.

    It's "trendy" to trash whatever lesser-known game you can't grasp the controls and mechanics within 10 seconds and call it a "kusoge".

    This is one of those games that, for some reason, got buried in the past and are no longer considered as cool and appealing as they used to be.
    The PS1 version is solid, however, the Saturn's has more violence and content preserved from the original arcade game.

    Gussun Oyoyo is one of the best puzzle series I've played but I think the likes of CGR and Metal Jesus haven't yet discovered it for the masses and rocketed its price to no end. "Sadly".

    Wai Wai games are pretty simplistic but their controls are really good IMO. At first it feels weird but as you practice it will fit your hands like a glove, few games deliver the same sensation to me.

    How does Arkanoid Returns work with the controller? Does it play well?

    Love the list; very useful/helpful. I just broke down and bought a japanese PS2 earlier this year and am enjoying the benefits of being able to play pretty much whatever I want.

    I've been playing Buttsubushi lately. The main mode is too chaotic and random to be fully satisfying, but the puzzle mode is interesting, and it's a fairly polished game overall. It's also 100% in English (or at least the German/PAL release is), which obviously helps.

    The Volume Controller works excellently for ball and paddles games. I played through all 100 levels of Arkanoid R 2000 and was mostly very boring. The control is very good.
    Other breakout-style games worth playing are the Simple Block Kuzushi 1 & 2, Block Kuzushi Kowashite Help!, and Block Kuzushi Deden no Gyakushuu. The Hello Kitty Block Kuzushi game is mighty charming and pretty fun to play too. I like block-breaking games which allow the player to tilt or thrust the paddle to alter the ball velocity and trajectory.
    I think I've played them all on PS1, and Cyborg009 is the only one which didn't click with me.

    Reviving this thread, partly because I've updated post #34 -- which has a list of games released in both Japan and PAL territories, but not in North America -- and partly because I find this image of Mickey from post #2 extremely amusing:



    I mean...what's going on there, exactly?

    PlayStation games exclusive to PAL regions/territories:
    C3 Racing: Car Constructors Championship (AKA Max Power Racing)
    I'll highlight other games later but a few things here:
    - Not exactly an European exclusive since TNN Motor Sports Hardcore TR was released in US and it's more of a license localization than anything.
    - Sequel to the very good Total Drivin (or Car and Driver Presents: Grand Tour Racing '98 in US); with better difficulty balance (the first game gets way too hard later on).
    - One of the most advanced racing engines of that generation, especially in consoles.
    - Max Power Racing is the best version to go with IMO, Max Power was an over-the-top sports car magazine in UK; so this is vaguely comparable to Road & Track Presents: The Need For Speed.
    - Better than most racing games on both the N64 and Saturn racing libraries, so definitely not shovelware. It's not spectacular, but it's a solid racer and with some unique features.

    Not European exclusive either, since it has the same content of the Japanese version.
    The "Special Edition" part is valid only when compared to the US release; it's identical to the regular JP release of Wip3out.
