"Super R-Type"

Conversion of one of the best shoot 'em up series around, based upon R-Type II with some SNES-only extras thrown in. It looks great and has all of the elements of a really good shooter, save for a couple of niggles: it has a bit of an issue with slowdown when the screen gets cluttered and the complete absence of checkpoints. I like a challenge, but being sent back to the very beginning of a level after being killed during the boss fight is just a pain. For this reason, R-Type III is the better choice.

Welcome to Frustration

Good graphics cannot overcome horrible gameplay and mind-bending slowdown in this shooter. Although this game COULD have been quite fun, the designers decided to require you to restart each level once you die. This itself is not necessarily a fatal flaw, unless every time there are more than 4 moving objects on the screen everything starts to go in slow motion. This one had a lot of potential, but there are better shooters out there for the SNES (Gradius).
