Sega Saturn must have games
« on: February 18, 2013, 00:07:01 AM »
Saturn Bomberman Gorgeous main game mode for 2 players, up to 10 player battle mode, and an excellent single player master mode. Best version ever.
Bubble Symphony Majestic sequel to Bubble Bobble
Athlete Kings Sega does Track n Field. This plays great and I believe it still looks really solid today - and it is better fun than the DC followup.
Fighters Megamix Great fun cross over fighting game - all sorts of weird characters to unlock and loads of content.
Digital Pinball One of my favourites in the genre. Well designed tables and an extremely solid engine designed to make the game very accessible - more so than any other pinball game I've played.
Sega Rally Famous port of the arcade game - things may have been very different if this had appeared sooner in the Saturn's life
Virtua Fighter 2 Same here - Still looks pretty good today. Would take a lifetime to master.
Galactic Attack aka Layer Section Great old school shmup that got a PAL release. Gorgeous visuals and great level design stands up to repeated play.
Darius Gaiden Another top notch shmup that got a PAL outing.
Marvel vs Streetfighter, Xmen vs Streetfighter 2 stonking entries in Capcom's vs series. Excellent ports and the 4MB cart means no loadtimes.
Baku Baku Lovely puzzle game - an original take on the symbol matching genre sees you matching food to animals.
Tilt Another quality pinball game - nice ability to flick between 2D and 3D views on the fly. Excellent themed tables.
Virtua Cop 1 & 2 Lovely light gun game series gets a great port from the arcade.
Sega Ages Vol.1 Outrun, Space Harrier and Afterburner 2 on one disc - pity we didn't get to see Vol. 2
Panzer Dragoon Zwei Glorius sequel to the launch original. Looks a lot more solid and plays silky smooth.
Sonic Jam Packed compilation of the Megadrive Sonic games - has loads of content and extra modes. Supports the lock-on feature of the originals.
Parodius Deluxe Pak, Oshaberi Parodius, Sexy Parodius This great series gets a spot on conversion to the Saturn. The 1st title has Parodius1&2 on one disc and got a PAL release. Oshaberi is content packed with loads of nice extras and Sexy Parodius introduces some changes to the series and its a shame this was the last one.
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo Lovely puzzle game gets the star treatment with lots of extra modes.
Soukyugarentai, Radiant Silvergun, DoDonPachi, Game Paradise Four import shmups of the highest calibre - why you get a Saturn.
Twinkle Star Sprites Odd puzzle game/shmup hybrid which looks and sounds great - comes with a 2nd disc stuffed with fan art etc. Finish the game once to unlock selectable slowdown!
Sega Ages : Fantasy Zone Lovely port of the cute arcade shooter that has a few nice extras if you delve around in the options.

Great list! Thank you both for the recommendations. Have been curious about Athlete Kings and Die Hard Arcade.
