    A stunning achievement for sidescrolling action rpgs that deservedly became a cult and is still massively enjoyable.

    Guardian Heroes does a really good job of uniquely presenting a silly, action-packed brawling experience.

    Sequel to Gunstar Heroes on Sega Genesis, the best U.S. SHMUP on Saturn.

    Rated on March 21, 2011 by DarthLefein

    This game is superb. I'll keep it short and sweet. You can choose between 4 characters (initially, 5 eventually) in the story mode. Each of these characters is powerful in his or her own right, showca...
