I never cared for R-Type 2. You can file that game in the same category as Jaws 2 where sequels that don't touch the originals are concerned.

R-Type 1 is a fantastic game, but I personally like the game better on both the TurboGrafx-16 and the Sega Master System simply because the music sounds so much better. IREM arcade games sound like ASS, and R-Type is no different. Great music, horrible sound set. The Sega Master System version has a really cool bonus round with great new music (by Compile... the programmers of the SMS version who almost always do great music). Also the Japanese PC Engine version comes on two cards, so you don't even need to purchase the final four levels since they suck ass compared to the first four (I usually just shut the game off after getting past level 4).
