Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire
Don't let your bank manager see the price, but your financial investor may back you that its a sound investment. One of the most expensive and rare PC Engine games because it was never actually released commercially due to it arriving too late in the PC Engine's life cycle. (Sapphire was just handed out at a game show.) Proving that it takes time to fully grasp the capabilities of a console's architecture, this polished gem used massive sprites with scaling, morphing, pre rendering, ray tracing and rotation effects. Four pretty pilots, four ships and five time travelling levels-not quite as long as you may have hoped. Still if you can resist the continues, this is a shooter fan's dream.
