man looking at virua on 4 and planet harriers, (which was supposed to come out on dc) but never did... wtf... man,... I wish I could play these games.. hell I never even saw them in the arcades here (u.s) damn it alll...... oh well.
Umm... no planet harriers plays like space harrier. Just in in 3D and FUCKING AWESOME. Lucky for me my university arcade had the machine setup for a few months so I got to play the shit out of that game...same with brave firefighters. Heck they even had the jap version of Virtual On Oratorio Tangram there too for a few months. Pretty much all the machines there are the jap versions, even the inserts are in japanese.
BTW, don't play the Sega Clasics version of Golden Axe available in the GB Advance.. I suffered a lot. A bad port from the Genesis version.. a lot of gameplay elements changed, less animation frames, less music.. etc... beside, my thum was siore from playing it with the GameCube D-pad (It is not quite practical for a game like that). it plays ok in the GB though.
