Sega Saturn

Notes on Saturn games.

Asuka 120% Limited: Burning Fest.
The best entry of this under-appreciated fighting game series, which emphasises speed, combos, and cancelling, while managing to be a really easy fighter to learn. Highly recommended.
Bulk Slash
Elevator Action Returns also on: arcade, PS2, Windows, Xbox
Fighters Megamix
Really not a fan of this game. The character selection is fun though!
Guardian Heroes
NiGHTs Into Dreams
Panzer Dragoon
Panzer Dragoon Zwei
Panzer Dragoon Saga
Silhouette Mirage
Soukyugurentai: Otokuyo
I'm not sure I can sell it any better than a Youtube video can (shTMXSlZue4), but: It's one of those lovely bleak-feeling shooters, mostly due to the music, which is some parts SNES-muffley, some parts Bomberman 64 crisp. The presentation is lovely, especially the level transitions. There's a lock-on mechanic with variable 'cone' shape, otherwise things are pretty standard. I guess that's it: an above-average shooter, with great atmosphere.
It also has a Battle Garegga demo :)
Twinkle Star Sprites also on: Neo-Geo
