On a Friday night in March of 2001, I was in Funcoland with my dad, browsing the used games bin, in particular the Genesis section and there it was, Gunstar Heroes for just $9.99. I remembered what EGM said about it and decided to pick it up.
From the very first level, I was blow away. The detail of the sprites, the amount of action, the explosions, it was all simply amazing. It quickly dawned on me why EGM thought so highly of this game. Just the first stage and I was already in love. I thought it was cool how you could select your weapons before staring out and then combine them with other weapons. The seeker has always been my favorite. Of course offensive tactics weren't just limited to shooting. I found that I could also slide into enemies, block, throw and kick. Nice to have some variety.
