Sega Virtua racing 32x


Sega Virtua racing 32x

One of the best versions of Virtua racing, as good if not better than the saturn version. This game was a great example of what could be done with the improved 3D capabilities.
Sega Star wars 32x

You shoot 3D tie fighters, graphics were ok for the time but the game isnt great. One for StarWars fans and collectors really.
Space Harrier

Space Harrier is one of the better 32x games. Its quite close a conversion of the arcade version.
