Shinobi 3. A masterpiece that takes the classic Shinobi gameplay and cranks up the pace and spectacle with great success.

Streets of Rage 2 would be a very close second place.

Come on, i'm a Mega Drive fan, but its common knowledge that most fighting games were superior on the SNES, especially Mortal Kombat 2, 3 and Ultimate. SNES even got SF Alpha 2. The convenience of Mega Drive is the stock 6 button controller that came with MD2. That controller is much better for fighting games like SF2 then the stock SNES controller.

Recently i discovered Yu Yu Hakusho for Megadrive. Its very fun when you play it with 3 other people. Great exclusive fighting game.

This honestly isn't a hipster choice just because the game is (strangely) unpopular, I genuinely find it better than the original in every single way. The art is amazing, excellent music, very good difficulty curve, loads of secrets, it's engrossing to play.

>>1902695
>I don't know how well it holds up to this day
I really don't understand it when people say things like this. The software doesn't change, only your perspective of it may change. So it's not really a case of a game 'holding up'. It's a case of how your taste, attention span, or skill has changed.

Or just emulate, Kega Fusion is a great emulator, even for 32X and Sega CD.

As long as you're emulating using a proper CRT display and a USB Pad, you're fine.

Alright, I understand because I'm also a purist and like to play on original hardware. But I also use a lot of emulation mainly to check out games that I don't know to see if I like them enough to buy, or games that are too expensive (most retro games nowadays).

I found that emulating while using a CRT display and a proper USB controller isn't really all that different than using the real hardware, especially on Kega Fusion which is a pretty accurrate emulator in my experience.

yeah, I'm american and I think the prices are high, but everything outside the US is insane.

Which is strange, because I don't know why PAL stuff would be more expensive. The genesis was more popular than the SNES in europe so if anything it should be more common and cheaper. It makes sense that japanese games are more expensive, since the genesis did relatively badly in its home country

Mortal Kombat

All of them better on genesis.

I agree with MK2 and MK3 better on SNES, but UMK3 was better in genesis IMO. It has more stages than the SNES version, and the music/sound effects are slightly clearer for me. The SNES version has slightly better graphics though.

I think SF2 plays a bit smoother on genesis, but i admit the SNES version looks better and has cleaner voices. Too bad Capcom did a mediocre job with the voices on the genesis, and the colors selection could have been better too.

Also known as "Thunder Force IV" everywhere else, this game chewed up a bunch of my time during the heyday of the Genesis. Every time I replay this game, I am reminded of how much I sucked at vidya back when I was a kid. I could barely make it to the final level on Easy back in the day. I haven't played it in awhile, so I don't know what my skill level with this game is right now.

I'd have to say that blasting detailed, screen-sized bosses to bits as that bitchin' soundtrack played really kept my spirits up even when I died and lost all my continues for the nth time.

It's still one of my favorites to this day.
