Getting things moving with the marvellous technical achievement of Wolfenstein 3D on the Super Famicom along with the extreme visual and aural delight of Actraiser. Retina ruining shmup action dominates the PS2 scene with three instalments of the delightful Psyvariar series not giving you time to blink. The PC Engine quietly gets on with its processing prowess proving you can't judge a console by its modest white cover: Gradius II and Super Raiden for the grizzled shooter vet, Adventure Island and Takeda Shingen for the action old hand. More undiscovered gems on the PSX proving it can rival even the Saturn for classic capers if you look in the right places in the wonderous and wacky Cooking Fighter Hao. Coin - op high jinx abound in the slick Sega converion of Crazy Taxi on the Dreamcast. The eternally youthful Sega Saturn continues to delight with a deluge of classic 2D titles both Ram Cart fortified fight fests and old school shmups with solid mechanics. Fist of the North Star's Kenshiro is a peach of a discovery in its post - apocalyptic Mega Drive world with the friendlier faces of Sparkster and Dynamite Heddy giving a more light hearted diversion.
