RadarPlays - Gunstar Heroes

The Genesis was home to so many great games, some of which that were lost to the past until they got HD rereleases on 360/PS3. For example, Gunstar Heroes won over many hardcore fans in its time, but fans had forgotten it until recently. And while it was developer Treasure's first game, the run-and-gun shooter has the same challenging gameplay and gorgeous graphics fans would soon come to expect from then-new company. Editors Henry, Lucas, and Ryan dove into the game recently to test their skills against the notoriously tough title. Watch to see how terrible (or not) they do below...

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    This was an absolute classic, and I didn't even realise it existed till the PS2 generation! Needless to say, I sourced the game from a deliciously shady old-tech shop and dusted off my old MD for some old-school action. If anyone gets the chance to play this, I'd heartily recommend - it's one of the platforming gems of the 16-bit era.

    Loved this game so much. I'm sad you guys didn't do the Boardgame level, which was always my favorite.

    If it was, it's no longer private now. Love Gunstar Heroes!

    Apparently the video is private?
