How in living hell do you not own Streets Of Rage 2?  ???



In my opinion the best game you own is Golden Axe.

hmm... Pretty sure I owned Streets Of Rage 2 when I originally had the Mega Drive, bear in mind this collection now has been brought back since about 2004, I sold all my original stuff in 1998 to buy games for my saturn and a second hand ps1... I know, unforgivable lol

I did like Streets of Rage 2 though it did frustrate me slightly. Must admit I never saw Toe Jam and Earl, is that actually any good? I have Wonderboy and the Dragons trap on Master System, is that the same?

"EDIT" hey, pretty sure I'm not going nuts, Wonderboy 3 was only on Master System right?

which I have ;)

Toe Jam & Earl is one of the greatest and most original games ever made:



Wonderboy 3 on the Mega Drive is a totally different game:

I own it, hence why I recommended it  ;D

I could probably recommend 10 more games that you don't have with ease!!!!

Both Mercs and Wonderboy III are very common so should be able to be picked up for less than a fiver.

Ghouls n Ghosts is probably my personal favorite of the games you have so far.

But, it's easy to list dozens of quality games that you're missing... first 5 that I thought of: Alien Soldier, Gunstar Heroes, Thunder Force 3, Shinobi 3, Streets of Rage 2.

what game was it I saw recently where a character or robot had to fly around a map and find enemy points/locations etc, can't remember which one it was

I'm definitely tempted to look into the following:

(I have the SMS versions of Xenon 2 and Rambo 3)

Mega Turrican
Shadow Dancer
Zero Tollerance (wow FPS??)
the punisher

theres a few others I wanna look into, is Battletech any good? I saw a vid of that and the graphics look excellent
