Panzer Dragoon II Zwei

satpanzerdragoonzwei.jpg

Panzer Dragoon II Zwei is the 2nd title in the series which improved the level designs and added more weaponry. The first game defined the Saturn in its infancy and is still one of the best games for the system. Games like these were the strength of the Saturn and is a must own..................................9.5 rating*

Andretti Racing

andretti2.jpg

Andretti Racing on the Saturn is a really good Formula 1 racing game, though the PSone version looks a little better and a better framerate but this version is good for the Saturn owner. While this may turn off some it seems to be a good choice really. This version is hard to find while you can find the one PSone all day in the bargain bin. I first played the Saturn title and love it to this day. Intense racing with a few tune up options like gear ratio and tail configuration. Buy this now..................8.0 rating  *

Good game

Steep Slope Sliders
(PAL packaging)

satsss.jpg

Steep Slope Sliders is a fun snowboarding game for the Saturn. The tracks are well designed for racing and pulling off tricks. The trick system is one the most intuitive control schemes i have ever played. This game is a lot better then Cool Boarders on the PSone in the most important area.....gameplay. The graphics are good but not quite as good as Cool Boarders. There is a lot of extras to unlock and the music is really good. I think this is the only snow boarding game for the Saturn so i recommend this one for your collection..........................8.5 rating *

Nights into Dreams

nights_box.jpg

Nights into Dreams was the first game to use the 3D controller that was packed in the game. This game was hyped as a new experience and was to sell the Saturn like hotcakes, well it didn't break sales records but in my opinion, it did bring a new style of gaming. Though this game isn't full 3D, it did have a 2.5D effect. The flight of the character is some of the most fun i've had playing a game. Collecting spheres and bringing them back to a cage with style doesn't sound very fun but once you have tried this game then you'll understand the allure of this. It has boss battles and quick mini games and a scoring system that completes this game. A must own..................10 rating*

Superb!!!!!

DOOM

satdoom.jpg

Doom had been on the 3DO,Jaguar,32X and Playstation by the time it arrived on the Saturn. The 3DO and 32X versions were bad and the hardware limitations might have beeb a reason for this but the Saturn version has no excuse, especially since Quake & Powerslave were great FPS games that proved that the Saturn could do this style of game easily. The game itself looks fine until you decide to move your character. The framerate is just plain stinky. This was the case with Hexen as well and i guess they just wanted to squeeze out a little more money out of Doom, what a shame......................................3.0 rating *

Fighting Vipers

sat-fightingvipers-s.jpg

Fighting Vipers on the Saturn is one fast fighting game. I always prefered this over the slow methodical srtle of Virtua Fighter (which is a great game). The fighters are nicely detailed for a Saturn game and the action is fast paced. The arenas are a part of the gameplay and an opponent can be thrown through walls and cages..long before "Dead Or Alive" came out and showed this unique option in fighting games. The Saturn had quite a few good fighting games and this is one of them...............8.5 rating

Great!!!

Sega Rally Championship

segarally.jpg

 The best rally game for the 32 bit generation as long as you like the arcade style of control. The graphics are top notch for the Saturn and the gameplay is still great. Though the Playstation eventually got quality rally games, it never had this gem. There is two versions of this game, the regular game and a Netlink version where you could play against another person with a modem. Recommended.............................................9.0

Duke Nukem 3D

dukenukem3d.jpg

 Duke Nukem 3D is one of the better first person shooters on the Saturn and is actually better than the Playstation version. All the PC levels are here and the guns and enemies as well. The gameplay is tight and doesn't take much of getting use to before you're blasting aliens and flashing money at dancers. The biggest difference between the Saturn version and the Playstation Duke is the Netlink two player battle over the net. Though just two player battles doesn't sound great these days it was something new to consoles back in 96'. I recommend this version highly...................................................................9.0

Warcraft II: The Tides of Darkness

warcraft2.jpg

 Command & Conquer was one of the best real time strategy games ever made so blizzard came up with a franchise to compliment that game. Warcraft II wa a huge improvement over the first game in many areas and the Saturn version is a nice translation from the PC. I didn't mind using the controller since the layout was thoughfully made. World of Warcraft really started with this masterpeice and you shouldn't miss out on this gaming pleasure if you own a Saturn...Recommended..........9.5

Gun Griffon

  The Saturn has always been unfairly compared to the PSone graphically and games like "Krazy Ivan" showed that the PSone did mech games well early on in both the consoles life. The one game that seemed to look great and disprove this myth is Gun Griffon. The graphics are really good for a 32 bit game. Also the game  controls very well and the missions are varied and , most important,  very fun. If you like games in the mech genre like "Mech warrior" then you won't be disappointed and actually surprised. I recommend this game.............................9.0

Manx TT Superbike

  The Sega Saturn is known for its own Arcade ports and are always great games...with a downside. While the graphics are some of the best for the Saturn and the control is perfect but the downside like all arcade ports on the system suffers from being woefully short on content. Manx TT has 2 tracks, thats it! You have the otion to race them in mirror mode but Sega was known for this problem with the Saturn. I do recommend the game though and usually you can find this game on ebay for 10 bucks or less so its worth it. Recommended....................8.0

Need for Speed

  The Saturn has quite a few good racing games and this port from the original 3DO game is a lot of fun and has a minor graphics upgrade though slightly inferior to the PSone version. The game has a good amount of tracks and cars, especially for a Saturn game. Though the control seems stiff to most arcade fans it does get better after you unlock cars later in the game. The tracks are varied with mountain, forest, desert, snow and even a Vegas-themed track. The game is the first in the "Need for Speed" series and it doesn't disappoint(even for a early 32 bit game)! I recommend this game...........................8.0!
