Sunset Riders
#91: Sunset Riders

Released In: 1993
Developer: Konami
Publisher: Konami

      Chaos reigns supreme in the Wild West and honest homesteaders live in constant fear of lawless criminals. As one of the game's titular characters, the Sunset Riders, it's up to you to save the day. Play as Steve, Billy, Bob, or Cormano and blast the hell out of a variety of baddies including outlaws, evil ranchers and a damn dirty Injun, as you head toward a final showdown with the villainous aristocrat Sir Richard Rose.

Syd Lexia: If this were a Wikipedia article, these are the tags I would put on it: Games That Were Way Better On The SNES Than On The Genesis, Games That Suffered From Retarded Nintendo-Related Censorship, Games That Had Incredibly Dull End Bosses. That being said, Konami rarely makes shitty games and Sunset Riders is not certainly one of them. If you're looking for a good run and gun, try Sunset Riders. It's not as orgasmically good as Contra III, but it's still pretty kickass.

Valdronius: I remember seeing this game every time I went into the arcade, but I never played it, possibly because my parents were smart enough not to give me money for the arcade. It's actually a really fun game with striking similarities to another great Konami game, Turtles in Time, except you get to use guns instead of melee weapons. Do yourself a favor, don't pick Steve or Billy though; Bob and Cormano's weapons are infinitely better.
