Watched that. XMen v SF was either the 1st or 2nd game I imported. Can't remember now - it was a long time ago. I got Radiant Silvergun around the same time.

It's an amazing game on Saturn - would have been head melting to have played it when it was a new release.

I agree that the abuse the PS1 version got while justifiable up to a point wasn't really right. The game looked OK to me in the video and if you hadn't played the original or Saturn you probably would have enjoyed it.

I thought the same about the game on the PS1.  Only someone who had seen and played the arcade or Saturn ports would have had a problem.
