    Default Saturn Recommendation Thread

    Here's my current Saturn collection:

    Astal
    Bubble Bobble Featuring Rainbow Islands
    Burning Rangers
    Bust-a-Move 2: Arcade Edition
    Chase H.Q. Special: Police S.C.I.
    Christmas NiGHTS
    Cotton 2: Magical Night Dreams
    Cotton Boomerang
    Dark Savior
    Dezaemon 2
    DoDonPachi
    DonPachi
    Dragon Force
    Dragon Force 2
    Fighting Vipers
    Guardian Force
    Guardian Heroes
    GunBlaze S
    Hat Trick Hero S
    Initial D
    Langrisser III
    Magic Knight Rayearth
    Marvel Super Heroes
    Mortal Kombat II
    Myst
    NiGHTS into Dreams
    Panzer Dragoon
    Panzer Dragoon II Zwei
    Panzer Dragoon Saga
    Policenauts
    Radiant Silvergun
    Sexy Parodius
    Shienryu
    Shining Force III
    Shining Force III: Scenario 2
    Shining Force III: Scenario 3
    Shining The Holy Ark
    Shining Wisdom
    Slamdunk
    Sonic 3D Blast
    Sonic Jam
    Soukyugurentai
    Super Tempo
    Three Dirty Dwarves
    Thunder Force V
    Victory Boxing
    Virtua Fighter 2
    Waku Waku Monster
    X-Men: Children of the Atom

    And here's what I've got my eyes on the lookout for:

    Mystaria
    Shinobi Legions
    Tempest 2000

    What other Saturn games should I add to my collection?

    Although it's more of a bonus disc than a new game you should also get Shining Force 3 Premium Disc if you can find it. It doesn't come cheap though.

    Actually I have that, but since it's not a game I didn't list it.

    Street Fighter. The series shined on Saturn like nobody's business.

    Last Bronx is probably my favorite 3d fighter. It really doesn't get the love it deserves, even among Saturn fans.

    If you like puzzle-oriented gameplay, I highly recommend Norse by Norsewest. I'd also give the nod to the original Tomb Raider, despite the later backlash against the series, the original is still great.

    If you like survival-horror at all, Deep Fear and Enemy Zero are two of the finest games in the genre.

    I would also go for Crystal Dynamics's games.. Gex, Solar Eclipse, Blazing Dragons, The Horde, Pandemonium, etc. are all good stuff.


    You just can't handle my jawusumness responces.

    I love the Saturn version of Rayman. Beautiful, colorful 2d graphics. If you like the graphics on Astal you would like Rayman. Also is nice and challenging in the later stages.

    Ah, okay. You might also want to think about Resident Evil, it's pretty good and Grandia even though it's an import.

    Nice list you got going on there! Two games I'd highly recommend are Keio Flying Squadron 2 (Keio Yugekitai), Tengai Makyo IV: The Apocalypse and Princess Crown. Three of the best showpieces for the Saturn.

    I know it's got some pretty chunky graphics, but I liked House of the Dead. I think that was one of the last few games released and it wasn't produced in large quantities. Other than that, you've got a great collection there.

    Another game that I really liked was Layer Section or Galaxy Force as I believe it was called here in the US. Pretty decent shooter.

    I believe it's Galactic Attack. I liked the Soundtrack.

    Galaxy Force. Sheesh. My head was up my rear when I wrote that. Thanks for the correction.

    Don't feel bad, it confuses most people; it has 4 different names.

    Thanks for the recommendations and compliments guys! A couple of the games suggested I already have for my PSX but nonetheless if you've got more just let 'em rip. The more I can add the better!

    O.T. but it's kinda cool that I played some Panzer Dragoon Saga today, only to hear my girlfriend playing some PDS in the background while I post this.
