    "Sega Genesis Gunstar Hereos has great graphics that pushes Sega to its limits in this scrolling shooter game classic. Great and colorful graphics and smooth animations help you control this game to your liking. It comes in single or co-op mode to play with a partner. You can combine your weapons for extra shoot out coverage, so take a chance and rediscover this "blast" from the past. "

    "I remember playing Street Fighter years ago. The concept seems to be the same as the originals in which I like a lot. The anime and graphics of the original Sega series is necessary to stay the same in order for the new series to be popular. I really enjoy that they kept it the same as the original and it is everything you could hope for out of Sega. "
