13 Vectorman

When I first saw this game I had no idea the Megadrive could pull off visuals this beautiful. The game and levels are also well designed and great for exploration. - SuperSonic17

14 Darius II

Was ported to the Mega Drive in Japan - a similar version known as Sagaia was also released on the Genesis. My brother has the original Japanese version; I've had a few goes on it and love it to bits. It's not crazily difficult for a shmup but still a great challenge for new and veteran players alike. - Entranced98

15 Sonic the Hedgehog 3
16 Streets of Rage 2

Especially with its gameplay being a lot more polished than the original, there's no reason for this to not deserve a place on here. - Entranced98

17 Earthworm Jim
18 NBA Jam T.E.

Amazing Basketball title with a life time of playability and fun, with some truely great dunks, and plenty of cheats.
