Sky Target, though that may be due to my craving for rail shooters.

Bulk Slash - Rare 3-D mech platform adventure.

Die Hard Arcade - Overlooked 3-D , 2-Player brawler.

Saturn Bomberman Fight!! - Poy Poy stylized gameplay, with 4-Players.

Keio Yugekitai 2 - Based on the Sega CD shump, a 3-D platform adventure.

Elan Doris - overlooked 3-D fighter similar to Acclaim's Psychic Force but on Dragons.

Astra Superstar! - Before Guilty Gear series, Astra was the fastest fighter using the RAM cart. Silly fighter with plenty of colorful visuals.

Gunbird - ported from the arcade, still has all levels with all characters to choose from.

Cotton Boomerang - Shump with beaufitul graphics, and lighting fast gameplay. Fans of anime inspired shumps will enjoy. Also features a co-up mode!

Guardian Heroes - With poor US boxart, Guardian Heroes was overlooked at the time of Saturn's release. Excellent brawler from Treasure.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo - Also released on PS1, Saturn version did not receive much attention in the States.

Silhouette Mirage - Unique platform, Japanese release only

Dragon Force - First of its type to create a mass (100+ sprites) RPG.

Waku Waku Monster - addictive puzzle game similar to SPF2TURBO.

Bulk Slash

Bulk Slash... I can't believe I'd never heard of it until I read about it on here, and I'm a Saturn Freak!

Also... SONIC R. The game itself is maybe just above average, but no one made a big deal about how good the graphics were. Arguably the best 3D graphics on PS, Saturn or N64. It totally destroys Mario Kart 64, and holds it's own with Gran Tourismo, although they're totally different styles of games.

1.Pandemonium!:Nice Graphics, game play, and catchy music. Completely Original IMO
2.Clockwork Knight: One of THE most creative games ever. The setting, A house essentially. The character...a clockwork knight. Enemies, almost everything lol. Though not spectacular in the gfx department, it wasn't bad looking either.
And some other saturn game I can't remember, a 3d shooter, space setting.... it was REALLY fun. I wanna get it again, but forgot the name. For some reason, I thing something like solace was in the title, hell it's probably not. It is MY mind we're talking about lol. Help me out here :/
