So that those not in the know can cut straight to the quality. Does anyone know a site that has reviews of these games?

All I can add with certainty is ANY of the Metal Slug games, so I'll kick-off with:-

Metal Slug 1, 2, 3, X

I'd like some shooters, but so far am stuck with Viewpoint (can anyone better that?)

And for sports, a decent soccer game...Soccer Brawl, though hardly done to Fifa regs!

Any advance???

Beat ém ups: Try Garou: Mark of The Wolves, (which is really Fatal Fury 4 under a different name) Art of Fighting 3, KOF2000/99, Last Blade 1/2 and Real Bout Fatal Fury Special.

Shooters: Probably Strikers 1945 Plus, but there isn't as big of a back catalogue on shooters for Neo Geo as there is for Cave / CPS2. Also try Twinkle Star Sprites, Shock Troopers 2nd Squad and Pulsar.

There are probably more that I forgot.

Yeah, shooters on Neo Geo is pretty slim pickings. Strikers 1945 Plus is pretty good, although not the best ever. Aero Fighters 2/3 are decent, but I wouldn't exactly call them great.

I'm confused though. You guys are responding like we're only talking NeoGeo? If you mean all of Kawa-X, you can add 1944 and 19XX as pretty good shooters from the CPS2 catalogue. 1944 is quite a bit better than 19XX, but both are good. 1944 is a very long shooter, though (17+ stages). Get ready for fire-button cramps or save state usage. laugh.gif

CPS2 also has Mars Matrix and Giga Wing - both are excellent shooters. Must-haves if you like shooters and Xbox emulation. smile.gif

CPS1 only has 1941, U.N. Squadron and Varth that I'd even begin to recommend. Don't go out of your way for any of the CPS1 shooters.

If you really want to break your thumbs, though, get Varth. It's over 30 stages long and takes well over an hour to complete. (Obscenely long for a shooter, mind you.)

That's it for me, I'm a shooter man. smile.gif

Hosh: Have you tried Prehistoric Isle 2 on Kawa-X? It's not quite your usual shooter.

Yeah, I have. I think it's pretty so-so.. Not bad at all, really, but not all that great either. It has it's fair share of qualities (I love rescuing those little guys smile.gif), but overall, I wouldn't list it in a thread that's asking for the best games. wink.gif

But you're right, I should've included it, I just forgot. Not the best, but if Varth and Aero Fighters deserve a mention, so does PI2. smile.gif

shoot em up: Blazing star
One of the very best neogeo shooters.

NeoGeoforlife is a good site if you want lots of reviews and other info about neogeo.

The game isnt supported but a few people have found ways of doing it. Dont talk about such things on this forum or you will get banned.

SFA3 slowdown in 2 player ???!! WTF !!

Try SFZ3 rom instead !

Well i know its got NO SLOWDOWN on FBA-x but, that weights out againt me NOT seeing a single slowdown yet, on NEOGEO Kawa-X LoL, use FBA-x for capcom roms4 now.

unless u dont find the slowdown on 2 player using ZERO3 (jap version)
