Next up in our Neo Geo reviews is Shock Troopers! Shock Troopers was released in 1997 on the MVS but never on the AES or Neo Geo CD systems which is a shame. We played it on the WiiVC which should be accurate to the MVS version. The game was also released with an online feature on Steam but i’ve heard that the port is a bad, choppy emulation.
Shock Troopers is a 2-player co-op run and gun game thatkinda makes you think “what if Ikari Warriors was actually a good game?”. Yes, you have the overhead view and can walk/shoot in 8 directions.
Now lets gun down some bad guys!

We have been playing the shit out out Toejam & Earl, a brilliant co-op adventure for the Sega Mega/Genesis. The perfect game for you and your pal to kick back, have a couple of brewskies before you got out or just whenever you have an hour or so to kill. At first the game comes off a little weird and maybe a little slow even but believe me when i say that the fun sets in very quickly.

We have been playing so many games in this genre it wouldn’t make any sense not to make this list. We are absolute addicts for 2 player co-op side-scrolling beat ’em ups and we have played almost all of them since we have always actively sought them out.
I realize this list may be a bit of a rehash from out other system co-op list but it includes a few original games we have never mentioned before 🙂

Cadash by Taito brought a very welcome action-rpg sword and sorcery kind of atmosphere to the arcades in 1989, and thankfully we Turbografx/PC Engine fans got a home version 2 years later. The game caught my eye because…. Yes… You guessed it…. Because it is a co-op game and well, just look at that brilliant cover art. How could I not check it out?

Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire or just “Sapphire” for short caught my attention a while back since i saw it was a co-op game. Further investigation led me to finding out that if you want a genuine copy of the game it might cost you about 1000$! That is insanity right?! What game could be worth this amount of money? Well….i burned a copy of the game on CD-R to play on my PC Engine Duo-R to find out if this price tag is even half justified.
Check out the full review to see if it is 😉

We have been playing our asses off the last few months, and a lot of that playing time went into playing 2 player co-op games on the Sega MD/Genesis for the purpose of making this list. We have played a bunch of Sega MD in the past but never really delved into the co-op library, so after a lot of research and playing, we are finally ready to present you with what we think are the top 10 co-op experiences for the system.
