What are some good shmups to get one PSX & PS2?
marktheshark
I'm planning on getting R-Type Delta & maybe G-Darius on PSX. What other good shmups are there to get on PSX & PS2? Something that's less than $50 that is.

HEY MARK!
There's actually a hell of a lot of shmups across the board when it comes to PS1 & PS2!

RType Delta & GDarius are indeed 2 great games! Here are some other suggestions, however, I CANNOT guarantee that hey were all released in your region:

PS1:
RayStorm
EinHander
Raiden Project (Raiden 1&2)
Strikers 1945 II

PS2:
Gradius V (not sure on price though, but one of T H E best shmups ever!)
RType Final (worth owning alongside Delta)
Gunbird Special Edition (1&2)
Dragon Blaze (classic Psikyo shmup)
Strikers 1945 I & II (double pack)
Raiden III (worth it for a CHEAP price as it's 'quite' good)
Other 'classic' Psikyo shmups (Tengai/Sengoku Blade and Samurai Aces/Sengoku Ace)
Castle of Shikigami I & II (not sure which are available in the US?)

These are the bulk of it and would keep you very entertained, no doubt?

you wish buddy! If it doesn't say 'Final' or 'Fantasy' in the title, or it's not a successful RPG, it's unlikely Square will ever sequel it... :(

NAH...
I didn't bother with that one I'm afraid. I did spot it on my 'shopping travels' when collecting some bits for my PS1, but it always looked alike a cross between Galaga and TempestX3 to me - except both those games are good!

THERE ARE...
some truly great shmups to be had for the PS1... at a price. However, there are quite a lot of expensive games that really don't interest me either. For example; Harmful Park! Crazy price but, I'm really not into 'cute 'em ups', although, I'm sure it's great.

I can just about handle Parodius, Twinbee and Cotton. Just.

I've never played any PS1 shooters but I do have all of the PS2 ones (aside from Castle of
Shikigami I & II) that Ninja mentioned and I would agree with those recommendations. You won't be disappointed with any of those Mark they're all quality games. Raiden III tends to divide opinions but actually it's the one I enjoy the most on that list. I noticed on ebay that US
copies of the game are very cheap.
