Treasure made some really awesome games back in the day, didn't they? It's pretty good for a Mega Drive game, suffice to say.

This game is a great addition to anyone's collection and is still renown 18 years later as one of the best platform shooters of all time. In a world where good co-op games are hard to come by, Gunstar Heroes still rains king. This version also address' a lot of the slowdown issues the cartridge version had, but still suffers from some slowdowns when things get truely hectic.I believe that may be an issue with the Genesis Emulator itself which is used by this game. If it say's Treasure, it deserves to be in your collection.

If you're a fan of 2D platformers, 2D shooters or just Old School action games this puppy is a must by. Gunstar Heroes plays like Contra on meth! The PC version of Sega's old line-up features save slots and filters for smoother graphics.

PLUS: Your save slots from other versions of SGMDS/SGCS (Gamersgate or Amazon Game Downloads) carries over to Steam's version. I tried it and it works.
