What are some good shumps that I should be playing on my MAME arcade that I built?

Please rate them from 1-5, where 1 is easy and 5 is difficult.

Guwange - i'd say about a 3.5 on difficultly, hard but not insane. It gets pretty tough after level 3, but then again most shmups do. And a 4.5 overall on gamepaly and fun. You don't fly, you run along the ground so you gotta watch you're step.

Blazing Star - 4 difficulty...depends on you ship you go with. Pick one with a hunter/claw for a little protection and it makes it a bit easier. It's a Neo game and the MVS settign is always a bit difficult. Awesome game, probably my favorite on the Neo. Looks amazing and colorful, wonderful boss fights. But the bullets aren't easy to avoid and some times there are bullets, space debris and explosions all at once.

R-Type Leo - 4.5 difficulty. it's r-ype what did you expect! great game though and worth the patience. looks amazing and changes up your charge weapon a bit from other r-type games.

there are many more I'd recomend....i'll get back to you when I've got some more time!

Two that I have been playing a lot recently is Salamander (the same folks who made gradius), but especially g-darius, a 2-d shmup with really well-done 3-d elements. Definitely check it out. I would give Salamander a 3 and G-Darius a 4.
