Years ago EGM magazine had a small section on R-Type Leo and I swear the graphics were just bad-ass. Of course, the pictures weren't extremely detailed but they at least looked better than an SNES game. Boy, tell ya what; when I got the emulated version and saw that it had a weak-ass color palette and the sound sucked I was disappointed. :(
I think R-Type Leo needs to be remade with some damn better graphics and quality audio to compensate me for the hardship I faced when I saw that heap running on MAME.
