I want Radiant Silvergun! It is the sequel to the Nintendo 64 video game Sin and Punishment. This is truly one of the best(maybe THE best?) YESSSS!!!! It really does remind me of Time Crisis and other similar arcade games where the player has to deal with enemies jumping down from places and sidestepping into different positions that you have to be aware of. Created by the legendary development studio Treasure, this is a game that hard-core gamers and fans of Japanese imports recognize as one of the finest Nintendo 64 titles to have never previously reached North American shores.

Sin and Punishment is a fine example of why Nintendo should adopt better digital distribution policies…or better online policies in general, really. It's not in the same league as Lylat Wars, in my opinion, but well worth a blast. They pursue the Nebulox into space, killing them one by one. one of my favorite score attack games of all time.
